BIKES TO RIDE LIKE A PRO

Integrated disc brakes provide smooth, powerful and measured stopping power for added control in changing weather and road conditions. New Shimano di2 12 speed, Flat mounts and new thru-axles increase stiffness and improve overall handling, while extra clearance in the frame and fork allows for wider tires up to 32 millimeters to run.
