Description

Frameset: Compact Carbon There's more to the revised Pro Carbon than just legendary performance, incredible value for money, stylish good looks and lustrous new paint jobs. The Pro Carbon has been perfected over years of continuous refinement that's why it's the obvious choice for all demanding cyclists.

The frameset itself needs no introduction. By far our most popular road frame, with a lightweight and comfortable carbon-fibre construction that has seen it chosen time and time again for racing, chaingang rides and Sunday morning club runs. The geometry sits nicely between aggression and endurance, with a riding position that you can comfortably maintain for hours, while still having the aerodynamics and snappy handling to put the power down for the sprint to the next road sign.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano have 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 a 11-28 cassette to give an excellent gear spread, close enough for fast road work but still including a bailout gear for tackling those ultra 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.

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.

We capped this build off with high-quality finishing kit and San Marco saddle. With a frame of this quality and groupset and finishing kit that majors on advanced design and lightweight performance you're getting a superb bike for your money, one that will keep you at the front of the bunch and keep you smiling for years to come.

Please Note: All customizable options are fitted in house during the build process by our trained mechanics.
