The SL was born out of the quest to create one of the lightest bikes in the world – a machine weight weenies dream of – by building off an already grand tour-winning design and making it that much better. When every gram matters, ingenuity follows: Through High Compaction molding, reduction of bonded joints, flattened sections of high-tensile strength carbon throughout the frame, and clev- erly engineered injection-molded cable stops, the SL frameset shaves off 237 grams from the 2015 Altamira – savings that are double the numbers most competitors boast of their next-generation, lightweight, carbon road bike. And not only is the SL significantly lighter, it’s significantly stiffer: 9% stiffer in the head tube, 11 % stiffer in the bottom bracket, and 18% stiffer in the fork. In total, the SL raw frame comes in at a staggering 695g, with the complete bike 1.1 weighing in at under 11 lbs.
