The brand-new SL Road is cycling stripped down to its purest form, all in the name of transporting you from A to B with the minimum of fuss. Powerful flat mount Tektro hydraulic disc brakes offer progressive, reassuring stopping power in any weather conditions. Shimano's reliable and smooth-shifting Claris 2x8-speed gears ensure you're always pedalling efficiently. And the comfortable carbon fork helps smooth your way, even on rougher roads. Commuter, trainer or adventurer: what will your SL Road be today?
A light frame helps make a fast bike, but it's the details that really matter. That's why, for the new SL Road frame, we didn't just reduce the weight of its Superlite double-butted aluminium frame. We also fitted a full carbon fork - with mounting points for a lowrider rack - to help filter out road buzz. We added flat mount disc attachment points, for sleek looks and the best braking performance. Mounting points for easy mudguard and carrier upgrades. And finished off with thru axles front and rear, to ensure safe and predictable handling, laden or unladen.
