Innovative and revolutionary research has seen the birth of our fastest road bike ever. Aerodynamically optimised for outright speed, the Ultra SL R is designed to make your fastest rides even faster. This competition-ready build comes fully equipped with the intuitive, precision gear shifts of Shimano's Ultegra 2x11 speed series, lightweight and aerodynamic LEVEL DB56 Sport wheels fitted with Continental Grand Prix GT tyres and a ground-breaking Ultra carbon integrated handlebar that shakes the very foundations of design, performance, and aerodynamic integration.

Developed specifically for the Ultra SL R, the Ultra Aero bars feature a patent-pending design that represents the next level in aerodynamic integration. The innovative wake generating concept disrupts the airflow, creating a wake for the rider's legs to sit within and manipulating vortexes around the rider to further enhance airflow. An aggressive looking and drag-defying anatomic wing top section further accentuates the bars aero credentials. It’s not all about the aero, however, with all-day ride comfort also at the forefront of design. The flat-top section also providing a comfortable hand position for climbing, whilst ergonomically optimised drops conform to the natural curvature of the rider’s palm and feature a textured finish that doesn't require bar tape.
The Ultegra R8000 series gear system is pro-proven. It’s infused with market-leading features and technologies from the top-tier Dura Ace series and delivers precision shifting and superior ergonomics for all-day ride comfort. Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes offer greater rider control than ever before thanks to a servo wave action that requires less rider input for greater braking power.
Offering an optimised blend of aero efficiency, weight, and durability, LEVEL DB56 Sport wheels are as strong as they are versatile. The proven rim shape offers superior handling and crosswind stability, making them a sure-fire choice when going for the KOM, setting new PB’s or attempting a lone breakaway. Fitted to the wheels are Continental Grand Prix GT's, a tyre that combines the superior speed and grip of a premium racing tyre with dependable puncture protection.
SEATPOST & SADDLE
The Ultra Aero seat post features a truncated aerofoil profile that is aerodynamically optimised to reduce drag in the high-speed airflow disturbed by the rider's leg. A composite shaft absorbs road shocks for a vibration-smoothing ride quality that is further enhanced by a saddle that offers just the right balance of comfort and performance, Selle Italia's Model X Superflow. A wide selection of saddles for riders of all shapes and sizes is also available in BikeBuilder.
