Description

Team Holdsworth Campagnolo rides again, the legendary seventies pairing are back together once again. The Holdsworth Super Professional is the first full-carbon race bike to wear the Holdsworth headtube badge and it's a pure thoroughbred. Handmade from multiple grades of Toray carbon fibre the Super Professional is built to last.

Frameset: Holdsworth Super Professional. A handmade monocoque chassis pairs a straight tracking, sub 400g fork with a carefully sculpted lightweight frame. Massively oversized box section chainstays are paired with an edge-to-edge PF30 bottom bracket shell to deliver maximum power transfer. An ovalized and oversized headtube provides massive support for rapid steering inputs so the Super Profesional tracks straight and true even in a bunch sprint.

Pedalling efficiency doesn't come at the cost of comfort and the Super Professional is built with multiple different fibre orientations in the rear triangle to maximize rider comfort through subtle vertical frame compliance. A braze-on front mech mount and electronic shift compatibility complete this race ready ride.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano have worked to improved the efficiency of the shifting, improved brake feel and delivers a smoother working, better-looking groupset that's simply worth every penny.

A compact 50/34t chainset combines with the new Ultegra 8000 11-28t 11-speed cassette to give an excellent gear spread, close enough for fast road work but still including a bailout gear for tackling those ultra steep climbs. Wider flatter crank arms retain Shimano's Hollowtech2 technology and improved stiffness at the bottom bracket has obviously been delivered.

Ultegra 8000 moves to polymer coated gear cables for the slickest possible shifts. revised lever ergonomics have delivered a sweeter gear shift feel and the slightly larger downshift paddle is easier to hit with gloved hands. Inline cable adjusters are a thing of the past with the new levers containing Allen key adjustable cable pre-tensioning.

The biggest change is out back where Shimano has integrated their Shadow Derailleur design from their Dura Ace and off-road groupsets. Shadow geometry places the rear mech further under the cassette, giving slicker shifts, protecting from crash damage and allowing for larger cassettes for enhanced gear ratios. The front mech gets a new cage and pivot design to help it accommodate the wider gear ratios and trend towards wider tyre sizes.

If you've ridden Ultegra before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best selling groupset and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Wheelset: Vision Team 35 The latest semi aero wheels from Vision push performance to the limit with a 35mm deep rim profile, bladed aero spokes from Sapim and meticulously constructed, 11-speed cartridge bearing hubs. Their good looks are every bit as striking and their wind cheating performance thanks to their deep anodised rim treatment, radially laced front wheel and straight pull laced rear hub.

Finishing kit: Holdsworth's Gran Sport bar and stem are the obvious choice for quality finishing kit, we've paired the 31.8mm stem with their bulge butted lightweight bar. Built with a lightweight carbon seat post which supports a Prologo Kappa saddle that offers exceptional comfort and performance for general all-round riding conditions. A bike as elegant as the Holdsworth Super Professional deserves nothing but the best and that's exactly what this Italian themed finishing kit offers, grace and beauty.

Riders hunting for a racing advantage will love the Holdsworth Super Professional's dynamic climbing ability, explosive acceleration and surefooted handling. It responds immediately to every rider input. In no time at all, you'll feel so in tune with you new Holdsworth race bike that you'll swear it was second-guessing your race tactics.

Get serious about winning and get one step ahead of the bunch with the pro-team proven Super Professional.

NB: Torque Settings Please note the correct maximum torque for the seatpost clamp is 6nM, not the value marked on the frame.

Approximate Weight (Medium) 7.45kg

Please Note: All customisable options will be fitted by our trained mechanics.
