If you are among the fastest swimmers in your age group, but hate getting to T1 and having to change over to your normal road bike while all your competitors have tricked-out TT bikes, then treat yourself to buying a Speedmax WMN CF 8.0, and keep your competitive edge. The great thing about the Speedmax WMN CF 8.0 is that it takes two important considerations very seriously: the fact that you are on a budget and the fact you are a woman. No silly compromises need to be made for either issue, though. This is an excellent bike that simply makes a few part choices for economy and a couple accessory changes to suit the female anatomy needs. The frame comes in three sizes, including an XS which will suit anyone from 158cm tall and then you can go up from there. The geometry in general features a slightly shorter reach and higher stack, so that you can expect to find a comfortable position for longer races and endurance events. In addition to that, the internal cable routing of the integrated cockpit system provides the first hint at just how much attention to aero details has been given to the Speedmax CF. The Speedmax CF 8.0 comes equipped with Shimano Ultegra mechanical components since it is the groupset that offers the best cost to performance ratio. The Mavic Comete Pro Carbon Exalith wheels are included and have enhanced stability in crosswinds and offer predictive braking if the weather conditions turn against you. Once you are training all the hours you can, there aren’t too many places to see improvements, but with an upgrade in gear, like the Speedmax WMN CF 8.0, you will start to see those best times that you thought were your boundaries actually no longer exist.

BIKE CLASSIFICATION: Bikes of this category are designed for riding on hard-surface roads where the wheels remain impermanent contact to the ground. These are in general road-racing bicycles with racing handlebars or straight handlebars, triathlon or time trial bicycles. The permissible maximum overall weight comprising rider, luggage and bicycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certain circumstances, this permissible maximum weight can be further limited by the component manufacturers’ recommendations for use. Proven cyclocross bikes with racing handlebars and cantilever or disc brakes are a special case in this category. In addition, these bikes are also suitable for gravel paths and off-road trails where a short loss of tire contact with the ground due to small stairs or steps at a height of 15 to 20 cm can occur.
