Maybe you have to be a cyclist to understand the dichotomy between tech and tradition in our sport. It is a bit of a split personality, really. We love the traditions of the sport while drooling over the latest and lightest tech. The Ultimate CF SLX 8.0 is a perfect example of this rule. With a super lightweight 780 g frame and 295 g fork, stiff and aerodynamically optimized, nevertheless the Ultimate uses the best, most idealized design language that bikes have been returning to for over a century. The advanced quality and use of the material, combined with some of the best, most intelligent components makes this a fantastically light, high-performance machine. Equipped with new Shimano Ultegra mechanical groupset, the Ultimate CF SLX 8.0 caters to the ambitious but economically-minded riders who appreciate excellent value for money in their high-quality kit. The gearing has been carefully chosen to give you a perfect selection for all situations, with a semi-compact 52-36 up front, and an 11-speed 11-28 cassette at the rear. The S13 VCLS CF seatpost has been included, and paired with the Fizik Antares R5 saddle, the setup will offer a lateral rigidity while still absorbing those fatiguing bumps and vibrations from the road. The Mavic Cosmic Carbon wheelset will also do its part in keeping the ride comfortable and responsive for every type of ride from an hour criterium to a 200km Gran Fondo. When you purchase the Ultimate CF SLX 8.0, you'll be getting the best mix of classic sleekness and modern lightweight bicycle mod-cons.
