Description

Our award-winning aero road frameset with custom Shimano Ultegra r8000 components is the perfect basis for your ultimate project bike. Weve kitted it out with the best value for money components on the planet and included upgrade options for all the best performing wheelset and component. Throw a leg over it today and start smashing out the miles.

With class leading aerodynamics the EC-130E is built to perform. With an incredibly stiff pedalling platform and efficient power transfer it has been designed from the ground up to help dramatically improve your cycling performance. The EC130-E takes no prisoners and breaks hearts everywhere it goes.

Frame: The EC-130-E frameset was created to help you 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 must be your next Fast Aero Road bike.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra R8000 groupset. Shimano has worked to improved the efficiency of the shifting and delivers a smoother working, better-looking groupset that's simply worth every penny.

FSA's excellent Gossamer Pro 50/34t alloy chainset combines with a 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.

Braking power and great modulation comes from the combination of Shimano's Ultegra Shifters and Shimano's incredible value for money BR-R561 Road Brake Calipers. There's real synergy at work here.

Ultegra R8000 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: FSA Vision Team 30 Semi Aero  The latest semi aero wheels from Vision push performance to the limit with a 30mm 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.

UPGRADES:If you're looking to take advantge of this amazing price to make some serious value added upgrades then we have loads in stock to take your EC-130E that extra mile. You can customize your bike and fit the full Shimano Ulterga r8000 groupset for maximum performance.

Vision Metron 55 upgradeUpgrade to Vision's top specification full-carbon clincher wheelset, the Metron 55 for 800 quid and gain a huge aero advantage. Designed with computational fluid dynamics and handbuilt in lightweight carbon the Metron 55 is a superb performance upgrade and you simplky won't find them for less anywhere else.

Finishing kit: We've revisited our tried and tested Italian theme for the finishing kit San Marco providing the racing perch and Italian accessory masters Selcof providing the seatpost bar and stem.

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.
