Sean Yates was nicknamed ‘the animal’ for his monstrous ability to take turns at the front of the peloton whilst looking after his prized team leader. Throughout a distinguished cycling career Sean also achieved some incredible victories. Whilst riding for the iconic Motorola racing team from 1991 to 1996, Sean enjoyed perhaps his most successful period in cycling when he held the coveted Yellow jersey in cycling’s most prestigious race, the Tour de France, becoming National Road Race Champion and finishing 5th in Paris-Roubaix. To pay homage to this legend of British Cycling’s time in the team we have created this ‘Yatesy Signature Edition’ of the Endurance Ti Disc road bike.
This Signature Edition is equipped with the silky-smooth shifts and powerful hydraulic braking of a complete Shimano 105 groupset, a full Level 2 finishing kit including a carbon seatpost and lightweight Level 35mm alloy wheels. Finished in a stunning Red, White and Blue colour scheme as a nod to the iconic team colours of the Motorola racing team bikes upon which Sean competed.
Shimano 105 benefits from technology and features trickled down from its premium tier siblings and makes this ‘pro level’ shifting performance more accessible. Shimano’s own 105 hydraulic disc brakes are supremely powerful with superior modulation for complete braking confidence.
Lightweight Level 35mm alloy wheels’ shallow and wide rim profile makes them supremely fast on the flat and stable in even the strongest of cross winds. Precision engineered hubs with Japanese stainless steel bearings keep the wheels turning even in the worst of conditions .Continental Grand Prix GT tyres combine the fast-rolling and grippy Black Chili compound with the impressive puncture resistance of a Vectran breaker belt for a truly exceptional year round road tyre.
The all Level cockpit consists of matching Level 2 alloy handlebars, stem and lightweight carbon seatpost. Providing comfort through the contact points are a colour matched Prologo Kappa RS saddle and Level embossed handlebar tape.
