Pro-level performance comes from precision lightweight engineering, exceptional stiffness, instant response and precise cornering and descending. If you’ve ever felt nervous about hammering out of the saddle on a lightweight bike, get ready to leave that feeling behind: BBright adds to overall stiffness, meaning serious climbing is second nature to this bike.
A sub-1,000-gram frame (size 56, with paint and hardware) at this price point is uncommon enough, but with our Squoval tube shapes and Project California structural engineering, we’re used to offering an uncommon advantage.
The R2 is ready to respond to everything you’re willing to give it: with an 8% increase in BB stiffness and a 24% stiffness increase at the headtube versus the previous-generation R3, power transfer and precise handling are snappy and dependable.
Whether you hit the road with this bike straight out of the box, or easily customize your ride with your own components, the R2 makes work on the road – and in the shop – easy. Future-Proof Cable management allows easy set-up for mechanical, electronic, or hydraulic lines, so this bike will easily transition with you during future upgrades.
