Highlights

All performance DISC road bikes feature 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. CF4 models use the R.A.T system, super fast to open and close.

All REACTO models feature a full carbon fork with a tapered steerer to give precise, confidence inspiring handling. Aluminium and CF2 carbon models feature a ‘regular’ 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper. The high end CF4 frame has a slimmed down front profile and uses a 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" taper.

Our wind tunnel learnings from the REACTO design project have been used to create a smaller aerodynamically optimised ‘NACA Fastback’ tube profile. The more extreme truncation of the teardrop shaped tubes enables perfect airflow at the lowest possible weight.

A forged aluminium part under the front and rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, giving 35% less heat build up and faster temperature reduction for a stable braking performance.

Our top end CF4 frame brings in 850 g (size M/L) in the caliper brake version whilst the CF4 Disc frameset tips the scales at 1000 g (size M/L). Incredible readings while offering a lifetime warranty on all our frames, even when raced. 

The SCULTURA DISC and rim version can be fitted with 25 mm wide tyres, providing maximum traction and transferring the improved braking power to the road. The 25 mm tyres also offer improved comfort. 

Technologies

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.

IMAGE

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.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

IMAGE

CARBON FORK

Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering. All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.

IMAGE

12-142 THRU-AXLE

A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.

IMAGE

12-100 THRU-AXLE

Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness.

IMAGE

NACA FASTBACK PROFILE

The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.

IMAGE

DISC COOLER

A forged aluminium component under the front and/or rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35 % and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.
