GUNNING FOR THE RACE WIN OR DIGGING DEEP FOR A PR, THIS COMPOSITE ROAD RACING BIKE GIVES YOU THE SPEED, EFFICIENCY AND CONTROL TO PUSH IT TO THE LIMIT, AND THEN A LITTLE BIT MORE.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
With an impressive stiffness-to-weight ratio and updated aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered to give road racers and riders superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency and sprint stiffness for race-winning performance.
This is where the TCR’s most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analyzed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles.
Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tires up to 32mm.
