Full Description

Description

This bike offers it all. Class leading aerodynamics, an incredibly efficient pedalling platform and dynamic power transfer, and wider ratio gearing than many road bikes to get you up those climbs.

Frame: The EC-130E frameset was created to help you slice through the air and extract every last watt of leg power. Advanced computer modelling of frame tube profile 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-130E is the product of rigorous design and inspirational thinking. The EC-130E 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 and it's ready for you to ride away today.

Groupset: Shimano's newest Ultegra level groupset has been upgraded. Better shifting, stronger braking, lighter weight and stunning good looks, the improvements have been worth waiting for.

A compact 50/34t chainset combines with the new wide ratio Ultegra R8000 11-32 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.

Polymer coated gear cables offer the slickest possible shifts while the revised lever ergonomics deliver 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. Usability and simplicity set Ultegra 8000 apart from the competition.

Shimanos Shadow derailleur geometry is a new design feature for their road groupsets. With the rear mech now placed further back and tucked up under the cassette, Shadow, geometry gives slicker shifts, protects from crash damage and allows for larger cassettes and 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: 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. 

The Bottom Line: The EC-130 R8000GS skilfully blends the performance advantage of an elegantly designed aero frameset with the lightweight advantage that only hand finished carbon construction can deliver, matched to geometry and gearing that lets you ride all day at your best.
