R872 Ultegra R8000 Zipp Edition
A multi-award winning frame, the R872 is hands down the most popular bicycle with our customers and staff. We are offering the stunning Black frame with the new Ultegra R8000 groupset, Zipp 302 Wheels and Zipp finishing kit at an amazing price never to be repeated again.
With improved ergonomics, and trickle-down technology from Dura-Ace, the performance from R8000 is increased from the previous incarnation, with it being stiffer and more efficient.
With a new, super stiff 4-arm chainset, that are beefy but attractive, and a new stealthy black colourway, the new Ultegra R8000 screams power and encourages you to ride harder. A new shifter design improves long distance comfort, and stopping power is improved thanks to sleek dual-pivot caliper brakes.
The new Ultegra R8000 is the perfect match for the much improved R872 frame.
The frame has been made stiffer in key areas, such as the bottom bracket and chainstays for optimised power transfer, but we have also made it more comfortable by changing the seatpost to a 27.2mm diameter which offers a little more flex. In this Special Edition, we are making use of the popular compact chainset to ensure that as a rider you can go anywhere.
The stunning Zipp 302 wheelset finishes the excellent specification and enhances the already stunning looks of this frame.
