The Ultra SL R is our fastest aero bike to date and heralds a new era of speed. Developed for Olympic distance or technical course triathlons, this draft-legal Aero edition offers you the ultimate performance advantage as you strive for the top step of the podium. It comes fully equipped with the super-slick wireless electronic shifting precision of Shimano’s latest Ultegra Di2 R8100 2x12 speed drivetrain; ultra-fast LEVEL DB Pro Carbon Tri-Spoke wheels fitted with Continental's iconic GP5000 TL race tyres, ground-breaking Ultra Aero carbon integrated handlebars that shake the very foundations of design, performance, and aerodynamic integration. Rounding off this tri-specific speed machine is a set of specially developed carbon clip-on extensions that maximise every aero gain in the pursuit of victory.

Developed specifically for the Ultra SL R, the Ultra Aero carbon integrated bars feature a patent-pending design that represents a giant leap forward in aerodynamic integration. The innovative wake generating concept disrupts the airflow, creating a wake for the rider's legs to sit within, 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.
Shimano Ultegra R8100 has been completely redesigned with all-new ergonomics, even greater brake modulation and wireless electronic shifting precision. It delivers the world’s fastest and most reliable wireless shifting and a wide gear range that means no matter how steep a climb is, it’s never outside your comfort zone. Di2 gives you instant, accurate, lightning-fast shifts every time, at the push of a button. Even in the most extreme of conditions, shifting is precise and controlled. You can even change gear under heavy load while climbing or accelerating. With Di2, you are in complete control.
Lightweight and incredibly aero efficient LEVEL DB Pro Carbon Tri-Spoke wheels offer the ultimate advantage in high-speed aerodynamics. Their streamlined design creates less turbulence when in motion, providing more speed for less effort. Fitted to the wheels is probably the best all-rounder racing tyre in the field. Continental GP5000 TL tubeless-ready tyres enable you to ride faster, more comfortably and with superb 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 legs. The multi-position design allows for extensive fore and aft adjustment of the saddle to fine-tune rider positioning. The composite shaft absorbs road shocks for a vibration-smoothing ride quality that is further enhanced by a Selle Italia Watt saddle. This time-trial specific saddle is shaped to provide a sweet spot for performance when assuming an aerodynamic riding position. A wide selection of saddles for riders of all shapes and sizes is also available in BikeBuilder.
ULTRA CLIP-ON EXTENSIONS
Ergonomically designed and incredibly stiff, the Ultra carbon extensions provide triathletes with a draft-legal riding position to take full advantage of the Ultra SL R’s class-leading aerodynamic optimisation.
