The Pro Carbon is our legendary road bike, benefitting from years of refinement. Expertly crafted from high quality Toray T700 carbon fibre, the Pro Carbon is a tried-and-tested all-rounder, just as home on high-mileage sportive rides as it is cutting through the peloton on race day. Intelligent compact frame geometry provides strength in all the right places, whilst carbon compliance soaks up road vibration and improves traction. All this and at a price nobody else dare match.
When you've had enough of overpriced aluminium frames from 'other' brands, the Pro Carbon is here to show you how good a road bike should be - lightweight, durable and refined with assured handling, all at truly excellent value for money. Widely used and favoured for recreational riding, club runs, crit racing and long distance mile-munching, the Pro Carbon is a modern classic and makes for the perfect upgrade.
Versatility For All Cycling Disciplines
The experience of riding the Pro Carbon bike is something to behold. It's a significant upgrade to aluminium frames and with years of refinement, the Pro Carbon is also a step up from a whole range of 'other brand' carbon bikes, too. What makes the Pro Carbon so good is its versitility. Just as perfect for race day as it is on mile-munching sportives, all you need do is pick a groupset and you've found your perfect match.View Range
Efficiency and comfort in equal measure
The Pro Carbon uses compact geometry minimizing the length of each frame tube to increase strength and maximize performance.
A strong main triangle provides the foundation for the Pro Carbon's efficiency, working in unison with the compact rear triangle to transform and every watt of pedal-power into rear wheel drive.
Strength and reinforcement only where you need it
Expertly hand-crafted from high quality Toray T700 carbon fibre, the Pro Carbon is very lightweight, yet tough enough to cope with years of riding abuse. It's durability and sublime riding characteristics have earned the Pro Carbon a reputation as a top-flight bike, more than capable of scalping more expensive bikes from 'other' big-budget brands.
The Pro Carbon frame has been tuned over many years to provide rigidity and instant speed, whilst remaining compliant and absorbing road vibration which can cause fatigue on longer rides. The Pro Carbon's efficiency means you ride faster, stay fresher and have more in reserve it's time to break away from the pack.View Range

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
