KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
CFD analysis and wind-tunnel testing have led to the latest version of our AeroSystem Shaping Technology, optimising aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes and all-new Contact SL Aero cockpit produce solid overall aero performance.
Aerodynamics are affected by many factors, two of them often seen as mutually exclusive: stiffness and weight. But the EnviLiv has found the sweet spot, with a new Advanced-Grade Composite frame and fork—resulting in 292 grams of weight savings over the previous generation.
When every second matters, so does every detail. So we developed a new way to route cables through the handlebar, stem, and frame, which improves aero performance, and also makes it easier to disassemble your bike for travel and maintenance. Two aerodynamic water bottle cages flawlessly integrate with the seat tube and down tube, further reducing drag.
