KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
BALANCED ROAD GEOMETRY: The frame is specifically engineered to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel. Therefore this blends confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.
SMOOTH RIDE QUALITY: 27.2mm diameter seatpost design reduces road shocks and vibrations. As a result, this gives a smooth ride quality that improves comfort and minimises fatigue.
TOTAL CONTROL: Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles. Consequently, this produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
