NOW EVEN FASTER, THIS AERO ROCKET SHIP IS BUILT FOR SPEED WHEN IT MATTERS MOST. THE RE-ENGINEERED FRAMESET IS EVEN MORE ADEPT AT SLICING THROUGH WIND, AND IT’S ALSO LIGHTER THAN THE PREVIOUS GENERATION. THE RESULT? RACE-WINNING EFFICIENCY THAT’S HARD TO BEAT.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
AeroSystem Shaping, a result of CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, optimizes aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes and Contact SLR/SL Aero cockpit produce the best overall aero performance.
All-new cable routing through the handlebar and frame makes it quicker and easier to adjust or change cockpit components and fine-tune performance and riding position.
Advanced-grade composite frameset features high-performance materials and proprietary manufacturing processes. As a result, it’s now lighter than the previous generation for an improved stiffness-to-weight ratio.
