XEON TEAM CGF / MARATHON
BIG SELLER FOR THE LONG ONE
Speed and endurance are the key attributes in the world of marathon – and the XEON TEAM CGF combines these characteristics like no other bike. The carbon racer is incredibly fast and yet extremely comfortable. A comfortable riding position and an aerodynamic frame help you save energy. This bike is our modern classic that appeals to a large number of bikers. The trade press is on the same page “[…] with an excellent grade of 1,4 the Rose Xeon Team CGF-4000 belongs to the best complete bikes in the test history of the TOUR - well done!" is the verdict of the TOUR magazine (07/2014). With numerous test victories in diverse magazines, the 2015 and 2016 XEON TEAM CGF models have continued this success story. The frame is made with the advanced E.P.S. carbon technology. This not only saves a total of 100 grams, but also makes the frame even stiffer. Moreover, the geometry of the XEON TEAM CGF frame follows the trend towards wider tyres. Simply perfect. A bike for tomorrow.
XEON TEAM CGF – as far as the wheels will carry you!
Speed and endurance are the key attributes in the world of marathon – and the XEON TEAM CGF combines these characteristics like no other bike. The XEON TEAM CGF-3000 continues this tradition – it is based on an excellently lightweight, stiff and comfortable carbon frame that is made from High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T30/40 and thus takes the trend towards wider tyres into account. It impresses with a Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset and DT Swiss R 23 Spline wheels. The 2015 and 2016 models of this bike have already won numerous tests of different specialist magazines.
The XEON TEAM CGF is a classic, a real high-end long-distance racer. The CGF-3100 model comes with the electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 that offers latest technology and sensational shifting performance. The system offers many technical highlights such as an anti-damage mechanism that decouples the derailleur cage from the motor in case of an impact to prevent damages and a multi-shift function. This feature allows you to up- or downshift several gears at once. All other components, too, promise great comfort and endurance, such as a comfortable full-cabon fork, the internally developed ROSE FLEX seat post and wide tyres.
If you are looking for the ultimate groupset, it will be hardly possible for you to not consider Shimano's Dura Ace – designed for ultimate performance, lightweight, highly functional and high-grade. The XEON TEAM CGF-4000 also features this component group. Top performance and materials of highest quality turn this bike into a winner bike. The shifting system offers smooth and fast gear changes and thanks to a Direct Mount brake, the braking performance is excellent and you can enjoy great braking power modulation, too. Further technical highlights are our ASR II-Active Stress Reduce Fork, a full-carbon fork with a stiff, tapered head tube, as well as our comfortable ROSE RC-170 FLEX Carbon seat post. The 2016 model was honoured with a "RECOMMENDED BUY" by the RennRad magazine 03/2016. The testers especially praised the bike's riding stability, the relaxed riding position and the great value for money.
Marathon at the highest technical level – this is what our XEON TEAM CGF-4100 Di2 stands for. This bike is only specced with top-notch parts. Parts that make you even faster and offer even more comfort. The basis is our sensational TEAM CGF frame weighing incredibly low 925 grams (approx.) that goes perfectly together with our ASR II – Active Stress Reduce full-carbon fork. The sophisticated Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 Di2 electronic groupset, too, convinces in all respects – it is a milestone in the history of rear derailleurs. It offers the new Synchronized Shifting logic so that two shifters are enough to shift through all gears. Besides, it impresses with extremely short shifting travel, easy handling and outstanding precision. This system provides all possibilities offered by modern technology – once you have tried it, it's hard to do without it ever again!
The ROSE XEON TEAM CGF-4400 offers highest comfort and performance as far as the wheels will carry you! The marathon racer is our enduro specialist and the perfect choice for long distances. Equipped with SRAM's top group Force 22, this bike wants nothing but offering ultimate performance. Precise, fast shifting processes - even with high stress on the chain – and a low total weight of below 2000 grams are additional characteristics of the Force 22. Wide tyres, a vibration-absorbing full-carbon fork and a flexing carbon seat post save energy and promise comfort in this category. For 2017, the XEON TEAM CGF was extensively upgraded to make it even more user-friendly and powerful.
When it might take a bit longer, you will benefit from speed and comfort. The XEON TEAM CGF-8800 offers both. Thanks to the extremely light and stiff High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre frame and sporty equipment, it is the perfect partner for marathon and gran fondo races. The XEON TEAM CGF-8800 is a bike for winners with a long-distance frame concept – when sitting comfortably, you will save energy needed for other things. The bike rolls on the outstanding system wheelset R 23 Spline by DT Swiss, equipped with fast Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II tyres. SRAM offers the perfect drivetrain which not only looks good but also convinces with regards to technology. Moreover, you can enjoy crisp, lighting-fast and precise shifting processes and a rim brake that impresses with low operating forces and high performance.
