Description

See it, ride it, own it. It's that simple, the EC130-E takes no prisoners and breaks hearts everywhere it goes. Throw a leg over it today and start smashing out the miles.

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-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 Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano has 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 11-30t 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 Metron 55 Carbon Clincher Full-carbon, 55mm deep, 700c clincher wheelset. The Metron 55 packs in a CFD designed aero rim profile, bladed spokes, lightweight alloy and carbon hub construction and incredible low-drag aero performance into this cutting edge wheelset. Available in 10 /11 speed Shimano / SRAM and a 11-speed Campagnolo option and weighing just 1,730 grams the Metron 55's offer serious performance and quality. .

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 and it's ready for you to ride away today for less than you thought possible.
