Put the hammer down and ride away from the competition with the best-selling EC-130E Aero Road Bike. The EC-130E is a magazine super test and Cycling Weekly Aero Road Bike Of The Year award winner. Built from high spec T800 carbon fibre, featuring EPS moulding technology and aero profiled frame tubes its every bit as fast as it looks. Say hello to the new king of the road.

  • Toray T800 full carbon aero road frameset
  • SRAM Force 11 groupset (22-speed)
  • Fulcrum R900 11-speed clincher wheelset
  • Weight: circa 7.90kg (small) Full Description

Description

The EC-130E has just smashed a £2500 aero road bike test in the summer edition of Cycling Active. With a full SRAM Force groupset, fast aero frame and Vision Metron 81 full-carbon wheels it simply left the rest of the bikes from Specialized, BMC and Scott in its wake. Grabbing 10/10 for value and specification and stealing the Best On Test award, what more could you possibly want?

The EC-130-E is built to perform. With class-leading aerodynamics, an incredibly stiff pedalling platform and efficient power transfer, it has been designed from the ground up to help dramatically improve your cycling performance and carry you over the line first.

Frame: The EC-130-E frameset was created to slice through the air and extract every last watt of leg power. Advanced computer modelling of frame tube profiles and fluid dynamics has delivered a frameset that not only has a remarkable low drag profile but is also surprisingly light for an aero road bike.

Each EC-130E is created with our 'EPS Inside' moulding technology. Main tube frame junctions are laid up over pre-shaped EPS formers. This allows for a more accurate placement of carbon in the mould and helps to eliminate wrinkles inside of the frame to deliver stronger, lighter frames with absolute consistency from frame to frame.

Meticulously crafted from Toray's finest T800 IM the EC-130-E is the product of rigorous design and inspirational thinking. After one short ride you'll know the EC-130-E has to be your next Fast Aero Road bike.

Groupset: SRAM Force 11-speed, provides lightening quick gear shifts the moment the impulse takes you. Gear changes are crisp with SRAM Force - and a pure pleasure. SRAM's Yaw-equipped front mech provides flawless shifting between rings without ever needing to be trimmed. Its well known that SRAM groupsets weigh significantly less than the competition, and with carbon levers, crank arms and rear derailleur cage, Force 11 is no exception.

Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 900, 700c clincher wheelset. Fulcrum wheelsets excel at delivering serious value for money and their Racing 900 model is no different. Built with black anodized, stainless steel spokes, CNC machined hubs fitted with precision cartridge bearings, and all laced to shallow profile alloy rims with a machined braking surface this is a quality wheelset. A Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible freehub makes this a versatile wheelset for most types of road cycling. Weighing in around 1800g they're right on the money for a do-it-all wheelset. Tough enough to sprint, light enough to climb on and a pleasure to ride all day, the Fulcrum Racing 900 wheelset will be with you mile after mile.

Finishing kit: We've revisited our tried-and-tested Italian theme for the finishing kit - San Marco provide the racing perch and Italian accessory masters Selcof deliver the oversized bar and stem. We've kitted the wheels out with a top-notch set of race tyres, lightweight slicks, with bags of grip that'll give you the extra confidence you'll need to push harder and brake later into every corner.

The EC-130-E is for the serious competitor in all of us. It skilfully blends the performance advantage of an elegantly designed aero frameset with the lightweight advantage that only hand-finished carbon construction can deliver. It's our ultimate fast aero road bike.

  • EPS Inside Frame Moulding Technology
  • Tapered headset, aero bladed fork
  • Internal cable routing
  • Di2 Compatible, mounting kit included
  • Braze-on front mech hanger
  • 68mm BSA bottom bracket
