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.
Aerodynamic carbon frame, “Ultegra 6800“ equipment and clever detail solutions – this bikes takes cycling to a new level. The X-LITE CW-3000 has all characteristics of a high-end racer: Based on a “High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T40/60” frame, we have equipped it with carefully selected components. Here, the “Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon” wheels represent a rolling highlight. The aero wheels offer proven Mavic quality and combine very good aerodynamics with high stiffness. The wheels are accompanied by a reliable and durable Ultegra 6800. The aggressively grabbing Ultegra brake is mounted to the frame with the Direct Mount standard; in this way, it can show its power in an even more precise and direct way.
The X-LITE CW-3100 Di2 is our aero racer with an electronic rear derailleur. Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 6870 offers precise shifting processes – fast, precise, customizable. The Ultegra Di2 is based on the mechanical Ultegra system. The E-Tube software allows you to individually program all functions. All shift buttons can be set individually to perform various functions, which allows you to adapt the Di2 to your needs. Moreover, the X-LITE CW-3100 Di2 comes with a top handlebar, the Ritchey WCS Road Streem II Carbon. The elliptical shape of the base bar is not only aerodynamic, but also allows for an ergonomic hand position – perfect for long climbs. The bar ends are bent outwards by 1°, the backsweep is 4,7°. Cable grooves ensure a clean routing of cables, the brake lever clamps securely fit on a rough surface.
The X-LITE CW-4000 is our ultimate racer, a spectacular vehicle for spectacular races. Perfectly equipped with the top group Dura-Ace 9000 by Shimano and specced with technical highlights like a Direct Mount brake. The wheelset from the company Mavic is also excellent; the Cosmic Pro Carbon Exalith wheels represent an ideal combination of aerodynamics and weight. The system wheelset features extremely lightweight spokes and smooth running hubs, it’s a real eye-catcher and a top performer! The “ROSE Carbon Flip Flop” seat post is turned by 180° within seconds and thus offers a seating angle of 76°, which makes the X-LITE CW-4000 also suitable for triathlon use!
When it’s about win or lose, when you ride alone in the wind and leave your competitors behind, you need a bike like the X-LITE CW-4400. Its aerodynamic carbon frame gives you some extra power for big deeds. Regarding the drivetrain, the bike relies on the brand SRAM: The Force 22 impresses with sophisticated technology and a fantastic finish. The great handlebar, a Ritchey WCS Road Streem II Carbon, is also designed for individualists and specialists: It is aerodynamic, ergonomic and lightweight. The elliptic, wing-shaped top section perfectly lies in your hands and makes climbs easier to manage. The bike’s “Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon” wheels also offer top-level technology. The exclusive system wheels combine great aerodynamics with high stiffness. The equipment is topped off with the “ROSE Carbon Flip Flop” seat post. When turned by 180°, it offers a seating angle of 76°, which makes the X-LITE CW-4400 also suitable for triathlon use.
With the X-LITE CWX-3100 Di2, you can let the race begin – with everything advanced technologies have to offer! Electronic rear derailleur, disc brakes, aero carbon frame and fork – the list of specifications is long and impressive. The shifting performance of the Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 is impressive, too. With low operating forces and highest speed, the chain moves from one gear to the other, the precision is simply incomparable. An aerodynamic frame is the perfect tool for triathletes and racers. That’s why we have given the bike a “ROSE Carbon Flip Flop” seat post. It can be turned 180° and thus offers a sitting angle of 76° - for a forward, aerodynamic racing position!
Race proven with disc – the X-LITE CWX-4000 combines safety and performance in the best way possible. In order to release the bike’s full potential, you need a very good wheelset - like the DT Swiss RC 38 Spline Disc. Thru axles on front and rear take care of the forces the disc brake generates, “High Modulus” full carbon rims reduce the weight and yet offer additional stiffness just like the Straight Pull spokes. Spline hubs with absolutely straight stainless steel spokes ensure an even load distribution over the spokes and thus makes them last significantly longer. The drivetrain consists of Shimano’s “Dura-Ace 9000” group which takes a special position in the group of mechanical shifting systems. Its legendary reputation is not without reason: This shifting system offers top-level technology and thus ennobles every bike – and thanks to its reliability, it offers every user an uncomplicated and long bicycle life!
All those who love technical details will love the X-LITE CWX-4100 Di2. This bike is full of highlights that make your mouth water. The sophisticated, aerodynamic carbon frame is accompanied by a “Shimano Dura-Ace Di2” groupset. It provides the gold standard of rear derailleur art: It is quite, extremely precise and quickly changes the gears – a dream in your hands. And since Shimano’s engineers did a great job, it not even weighs 100 grams more than the comparable mechanical Dura-Ace groupset. A pair of really good wheels is also part of the bike’s outstanding equipment: As the name suggests, the DT Swiss RC 38 Spline Disc wheels are compatible with disc brakes which is why they come with thru axles on front and rear. Apart from “High Modulus” full carbon rims, the system wheel set offers Straight Pull spokes, which significantly increases the stability of the wheels.
Aerodynamic, equipped with disc brakes and weighing less than 6800 grams – the X-LITE CWX-8800 is our disc brake lightweight. The “High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T40/60” frame comes with American components – with a “SRAM Red 22” groupset. The highlight surely is the hydraulic disc brake SRAM Red HydroR. It features 160 mm rotors and offers excellent braking power modulation as well as low operating forces. In terms of equipment, the X-LITE CWX-8800 impresses with lightweight “DT Swiss RC 38 Spline Disc” wheels. The “High Modulus” full carbon rims are combined with thru axles on front and rear – a great combination that easily withstands the high forces of a disc brake. The system wheel set is based on the Straight Pull principle: Absolutely straight spokes provide increased stability and durability.
