Want a fast, high-performance modern carbon frame, but don't need the racy, long-reach position of our Pro Carbon or Nanolight? The RT-57 boasts bang up-to-date features like a tapered steerer tube and BB30 bottom bracket. "Sounds like buzzwords to me!" you say. Well there are solid bike-improving reasons for these ideas.

A tapered steerer stiffens up the whole front end of the bike, improving handling at speed and through corners. And here's a tech secret other manufacturers won't tell you when they're blathering on about how smooth the inside of their carbon frames is: a large lower headset makes it easier to pull out the silicone mandrel used to mould the frame and get that smooth internal finish.

It also makes for a larger down tube and the BB30 bottom bracket helps at the other end too, improving the torsional rigidity of the frame and increasing its stiffness against pedalling.
What it all adds up to is a quick, stiff road frame suited to fast sportives, shorter Audax rides and racing on quick, twisty courses. It eats hills for breakfast and your mates for lunch and dinner!

The final look of the RT-57 was decided by you, our customers when we asked you to choose some colour schemes via Facebook and Twitter a while back. The RT-57 will be available in four delicious colour schemes: Fluoro Yellow with Green; Matt Black with Red; White with Blue; and White with Red.

To get a spot-on fit, the RT-57 is available in six sizes from XS to XXL, and because we've made it in a wider range of fittings, we've gone for a more traditional look with only a gentle slope to the top tube.
