BH insist it's no noodle, though – in fact, they claim it's 60 percent stiffer than their current top-end G5, thanks largely to use of the new BB386 Evo bottom bracket shell standard, developed by BH and FSA.
The Ultralight will be available with Shimano Dura-Ace or SRAM Red, with wheel options including Corima MCCs, Cole Ventoux and Lightweight Obermayers. BH say full bike weights start at around 5.1kg (11.24lb), with no user weight limit. The non-production model pictured comes in lighter yet, at 10.66lb (4.84kg).
