Wide tyres of up to 32 mm effectively absorb bumps so that microvibrations won’t reach your body, which saves energy. This bike wants to be something special – and it offers something special. It is designed for lovers of the extraordinary, equipped with top components like a high- quality carbon wheelset, a carbon handlebar and a carbon seat post. For people for whom compromise isn’t part of their vocabulary, for people whose top priority is performance and who know only one principle: Full speed!
