THE FUN IS ALWAYS IN THE MIDDLE
When it comes to the fun part of triathlon, a perfect bike is the basis for performance. At ROSE, you can find your perfect triathlon bike that can be individually adapted to your needs. Especially when fighting against the time, it’s all about customization. In our configurator, you can choose from a large number of different components to adapt technical details such as the gear ratio and the riding position to your individual preferences. This is a significant advantage for time trialists and triathletes we have designed the AERO FLYER for. The shape of the frame and fork is the result of extensive wind tunnel tests, a horde of team riders have successfully used our bikes in races and helped to develop them further. It is your bike, your body and your race – and we’ll help you to get the most out of it.
When it's about making for a small silhouette for best aerodynamics, you should go for an AERO FLYER. With our AERO FLYER-3000, you will start your ambitious triathlon future! The frame - a dream made of carbon, "High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T30/40“ as it is correctly called, made with H.O.C. technology. This technology allows for the development of a frame with an excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio, which offers an excellent basis. The adapted aerodynamic design is though-out down to the last detail and underlines the competitive character of the AERO FLYER-3000. The drivetrain is highly efficient; Shimano's Ultegra group impresses with high reliability and functionality. The shift and brake levers are part of the top group Dura-Ace, which guarantees an outstanding level of quality.
All those who place great demands on the AERO FLYER-3100 Di2 will not be disappointed – high-end components already speak for themselves. The first-class aerodynamic carbon frame features the flagship of electronic shifting art: the Di2 by Shimano! It changes gear precisely, fast and silently - with this shifting system, we have arrived in the future. An especially nice feature of the front derailleur is the precise adjustment option. It automatically adjusts its plate to avoid any friction. This convincing performance especially pays off in races, where you fully concentrate on the road. Apart from that, the bike comes with selected components like the aerodynamic ROSE AERO CARBON seat post and Profile Twentyfour AL wheels. The 24 mm wide training wheels can be replaced by competition wheels without having to re-adjust the brakes. This bike is ready for racing!
