    Your Bike. Your Way
    DURABILITY &
    COMFORT

    The CGR SL frameset is manufactured from a carefully selected blend of Toray’s T1000 and T800 carbon. Layered to an exacting specification using an advanced monocoque mould technology incorporating an EPS inner core system which ensures complete consistency of the structural integrity of the fibres and resin throughout the frame.

    This system also eliminates excess material on the inside of the frame. The profiles and shapes designed into the frame are all there for a specific performance reason, from the truncated aerofoil down tube enhancing aerodynamic advantage and torsional stiffness to the seat stays designed for vertical compliance and vibration absorption. This frame is the epitome of design and attention to detail.
