Outstanding - Test victory
The Ultimate CF SL is characterised by its outstanding responsiveness, with rapid acceleration and sharp handling guaranteed. Tipping the scales at just 940 g, the carbon frame incorporates VCLS technology and advanced material layups to provide absolute stiffness for excellent power transfer and an impressively smooth ride. Key components have been targeted to boost comfort, such as the One One Four SLX fork with carbon dropouts and the seatstays, which combine exceptional lateral stiffness with subtle vertical flex properties to kill road buzz and take the edge off harsh impacts.
A 1 ¼ fork shaft guarantees a hugely solid platform for sprinting and stable, accurate handling down high speed descents. The unmistakeable frame design is defined by slender tube forms and flowing transitions, further enhanced by full internal cable routing to result in a clean appearance that evokes the bike’s dynamic potential. Our Sport Pro Geometry gives the rider the ideal position on the bike for optimum performance and comfort when spending hours in the saddle. For enthusiasts and racers alike, the Ultimate CF SL makes pro level performance accessible to all.
The extremely sharp entry and exit angles of the cables at the front and rear of the top tube significantly reduce friction. In addition, the protective stickers become redundant since the cable casings cannot come into contact with the frame regardless of the how far you turn the handlebars.
The derailleur hanger consists of a right and left hand part, which is bolted onto either side of the carbon drop-out. This guarantees maximum width and stiffness at the lowest possible weight.
The seat stays pass either side of the seattube and are connected directly to the rear end of the top tube. The connection between seattube and top tube thus becomes much stiffer, but can still provide sufficient vertical flex when absorbing harder shocks.This prevents shocks from reaching the rider. Your hands remain well supplied with blood for longer, your levels of performance will be better for longer and your muscles will be able to work more efficiently for longer periods.
The new One One Four SLX fork is a leap forward in comfort. This race fork with carbon-fibre dropouts has extreme lateral stiffness and VCLS technology to absorb hard knocks and vibrations. This protects your muscles and joints, saving valuable energy for the final sprint.
