Full Description

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-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 has to be your next Fast Aero Road bike.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra Di2 groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra R8050 groupset. Its not just the looks that come straight out of the Dura Ace Di2 playback, these groupsets share a huge number of parts with the Di2 mechanics themselves being shared across both groupsets. Shimano has worked to improve the efficiency of the shifting and delivers a smoother working, better-looking electronic groupset that's simply worth every penny.

Shift integration is improved over the previous iteration with options for programmable buttons on your hoods and better battery and cable management. Shimanos use of their Shadow Tech from their MTB groupsets redefines the rear derailleur performance making for the most positive mid-range E-shift ever. 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.

A compact 50/34t chainset combines with the new Ultegra 8050 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.

If you've ridden Ultegra Di2 before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best-selling groupsets and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Wheelset: FSA Vision team 35 Semi Aero 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: We've revisited our tried and tested Italian theme for the finishing kit Prologoo 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.
