Available Options

  • SMART ENTRY:
    Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
    PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINIUM:
    Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
    HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM (HFS):
    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.
    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’ll be convinced it is carbon.
    CHAINSTAY POST MOUNT:
    Post mounted calipers fit directly for a strong and light connection whilst positioning the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle gives it extra protection and better distribution of braking forces.
