WHY SHOULD YOU
BUY THIS BIKE?
The SL R is the lightest and fastest package that we offer, the fully monocoque carbon frame is super stiff and lets you put the power down with no wasted effort. A dropped seat stay geometry offers improved vertical compliance which smooths out vibrations from rough surfaces. Making it comfortable to ride over longer distances and as a result reducing rider fatigue.
The Sram eTAP groupset has revolutionised electronic shifting thanks to its fully wireless system and is ultra-light as a result. Plus, there is also the option to fit full coverage mudguards for all weather capability.
