Ultimate looks, ultimate comfort, ultimate speed, ultimate practicality. That's why we gave it an advanced aluminium double butted frame, then fitted a sleek rigid fork. It's the reason we didn't compromise on the transmission, selecting Shimano's superb Alfine 11 speed hub gear and combining it with a Gates belt drive for silent running and practically low-maintenance performance. It's the thinking behind the powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, which offer reliable stopping in even the wettest of conditions. And it's also why our engineers refined the mudguard and luggage carrier mounting points, so that your bike retains its good looks at all times. Because what use is performance, if you can't have it with a big dollop of style on the side?
