“Loving the new ride. Get lots of great comments on its looks. Hard to go back to my other bikes at the moment…” -Paul
Executed in a selection of premium steel from Columbus, primarily their “Life” range, the liveliness of steel communicates the nuances of the surfaces the tires traverse, with comfort, stability and the oversize down tube providing a solid backbone for rapid acceleration.
The Drivetrain is a smart mix – taking advantage of Di2 technology, the Ultegra shift/brake levers are mated to an XT rear derailleur and cassette with a light and stiff Race Face carbon crank, running an Absolute Black oval ring. This allows for a clean 1x drivetrain with a wide range cassette to tackle steep climbs and keep pace on the flats. The chainring is machined in Poland and the oval shape is a bit more efficient for the body, and enhances traction on steep climbs as it compensates a bit for our uneven power delivery.
