About SL

The SL was born out of the quest to create one of the lightest bikes in the world, a machine weight weenies dream of. When every gram matters, ingenuity follows: Through High Compaction molding and the reduction of bonded joints the SL delivers a frame weight of only 695g without compromising on frame stiffness. The SL was cleverly and skillfully engineered to ensure the lightest, stiffest frame possible – a machine WORTH THE WEIGHT.

Key Features

  • Constructed using High Compaction (HC) molding; a series of internal molds that eliminate wrinkles and excess resin buildup in high-stress, complex-radius-bend areas for greater compaction in the carbon layers, creating a lighter and stiffer frame.
  • 695g frame weight for Elite and 1 series frame.
  • Fork uses HC molding and RIB technology, a reinforcing rib that runs the length of the fork blades, amplifying stiffness for razor-sharp steering precision.
  • 295g fork weight for Elite and 1 series FC330 fork.
  • Headtube angle and fork offset were carefully chosen to be within the optimal range of trail adjusted throughout the size range to ensure stable steering and confidence-inspiring handling.
  • Unique tube diameters and carbon layups for each size frame produces a consistent ride quality across the full size range.
  • Frame features only four bonded joints where most frames use eight or more; the more bonding points you can eliminate the stronger and lighter the frame becomes.
  • Oval-shaped, super-thin seatstays reduce weight and increase ride comfort.
  • Injection-molded cable stops and internal cable routing allow for the use of mechanical or electronic drivetrains while keeping cables neatly routed and out of the elements.
  • Integrated chain watcher ensures smooth shifts without the risk of dropping the chain to the inside of the crank.
  • Chainstay protector ensures the frame won't be damaged in the event of chain suck.
