Beautifully crafted lightweight aluminium frame with internal cable routing, aero profiled tubing, tapered head tube for precise steering and classic rim brakes. By maintaining the proven geometry, rather than following the more aggressive alternative of our new top-end SCULTURA frames, the 300 offers the perfect balance between sharp handling and acceleration on one side and a more relaxed and comfortable riding position on the other. While not as upright as our ENDURANCE LITE frame, the 300 offers an exciting option for the less aggressive road rider on a budget.

Rather than featuring the more aggressive and race-proven geometry of the CF5 and CF3 models, the CF2 and aluminium SCULTURA models retain their slightly more relaxed geometry. Within this family, we offer our bikes with powerful and easy to modulate disc brakes that deliver constant braking power even in wetter conditions or the more price aggressive rim brake alternative. Due to the less aggressive geometry, our CF2 and aluminium models are ideal for riders who are getting into the sport as well as for those who prefer a slightly more upright position when hitting the lanes.

To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
