Highlights

Cables are routed through the frame to keep the look of the bike neat and uncluttered, whilst the cables are out of the airflow and protected from moisture and dirt.

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.

Direct mount brakes are significantly more aerodynamic than conventional brakes and, in terms of braking power, far superior to all integrated braking systems. They are also easier to look after and maintain and more straight forward when packing up your bike for transport.

Aero bikes deliver the best possible aerodynamics, but superb wind-tunnel performance data is useless if the rider can‘t get into the correct position. The ‘Flip Flop’ head allows seat angles to be optimised for comfort.

Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to F1; apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.

Like WorldTour pro riders, many technology-loving triathletes trust in Shimano’s electronic Di2 shifting system, delivering reliability and efficient, effortless operation. Our WARP TRI is ‘Di2 ready’ and perfectly prepared for the installation of this technology with the battery mounted in the seat post.

Technologies

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.

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%.

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.

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.
