SILEX 4000

Entry-level carbon SILEX with MTB inspired geometry for superior off-road handling. Equipped with Shimano's dedicated GRX gravel groupset, this bike loves fast sessions on tarmac as much as rugged gravel climbs where the perfect gear is key.

Our entry into the SILEX carbon range, the SILEX 4000 features the same test and award-winning full carbon frame as its two bigger brothers but, due to clever component choice, is able to come in at a very attractive price. The comfortable and stable geometry makes the SILEX perfect for long trips in the saddle. The 700c wheels specced with capable yet fast-rolling gravel tyres allow our SILEX to cover ground easily, whatever the surface.

There's a certain beauty in just riding without watching the time, heading wherever you feel the urge. For those rides, the test and award-winning SILEX makes total sense; our most comfortable and versatile road bike ever. With its modern MTB inspired geometry, long top and head tubes and short stem, it offers nimble, confidence-inspiring handling. While often seen on extended gravel and rough road outings, as well as bikepacking trips, the SILEX also found a strong following in comfort-orientated road riding connoisseurs as well as commuters and city traffic weavers. The more rugged 650b wheeled alternative to the 700c SILEX has managed to obtain multiple test wins as well as comfort awards, and is coming back in the form of the fully loaded and wirelessly shifted SILEX+ LIMITED. The 'classic' 700c SILEX also impressed the press with the 400 securing a test win in Cycling Plus, being certified as having a 'huge fun factor', 'superb riding position' and 'brilliant off-road handling'.

X-TAPER KRMILNA CEV

Uporaba stožčaste cevi dimenzij in ležaja 1 1/8 "na vrhu in 1 1/4" ali 1 1/2 "na dnu ustvarja izjemno togost in natančno, zanesljivo navdušujoče krmiljenje.

NOTRANJA NAPELJAVA BOVDNOV

Bovdni napeljavi skozi okvir nudijo sodoben izgled kolesa, medtem ko so kabli ustrezno zaščiteni pred vlago in umazanijo.

DI2 READY

Kolesa z oznako "DI2 Ready" so predpriravljena za vgradnjo te tehnološke rešitve-predvsem pa omogoča vgradnjo baterije v za to predvideno mesto v okvirju.

NANO MATRIX KARBON

Da bi zaščitili celovitost karbonskih okvirjev so vlakna vezana skupaj z epoksidno smolo in dodanimi nano delci, kar povečuje odpornost na udarce za 40%.

AWS

Pri ustvarjanju posameznih ogljikovih elementov se uporablja napihljiv mehur, ki zagotavlja, da v cevi ni gub, saj lahko te dodajo težo in ustvarijo šibkost. Rezultat je svetlejši, trdnejši in močnejši okvir.

F-MOUNT

Opremljena kolesa z "F-Mount" imajo integrirana prtrdilna mesta za blatnike (nekatera kolesa zahtevajo specifičen model blatnikov), kar omogoča hitro in enostavno namestitev.

C-MOUNT

Opremljena kolesa s "C-Mount" imajo iintegrirane pritrdilne točke za pritrditev zadnjega prtljažnika (nekatera kolesa zahtevajo specifičen model prtljažnika ), kar omogoča hitro, preprosto in zanesljivo namestitev.

HLAJENJE DISKOV

Kovani aluminijasti del pod sprednjo in / ali zadnjo čeljustjo, ki omogoča, da se toplota odvaja preko CNC-frezanih hladilnih reber. Preskusi kažejo, da se temperature znižajo za približno 35%, čas hlajenja pa se skrajša, kar izboljša učinkovitost zavor.

NOTRANJA OBJEMKA SEDEŽA

Oblikovanje koles za WorldTour je podobno kot pri F1; navidezno nepomembne podrobnosti lahko pripeljejo do prihranka pomembnih sekund. Integrirano vpenjanje sedežne opore zmanjša turbulenco na zgornji cevi.
