A bike like this needs the right chassis. In the case of the SL Road Race that meant opting for double butted aluminium tubes, resulting in a frame that’s not just light but also unbelievably stiff. Our Smooth Welding process at the head and seat tube junctions is as durable as it is sleek, as our rigorous in-house testing proves. The 3D forged dropout is ready to accept our Easy Mount kickstand, should you wish, while the aero design fork combines aluminium with carbon blades and blends perfectly with the bike’s overall looks. Finally, we routed cables internally – neat, tidy and secure – for reduced maintenance and improved gear shifting performance.
