Pretty much every part of the frame that could be made from carbon is made from carbon – it all adds up to about £7,000 worth of the stuff. The top tube is slightly longer for 2015, as is the front centre – the ideal behind these geometry tweaks is to make the bike’s handling more stable on high-speed terrain. 


The wheels are 650b, a change from last year’s model, which was on 26in wheels. The rims come courtesy of Enve, as does the handlebar, while Magura takes care of the brakes. Other spec highlights include SRAM XX, Cannondale Hollowgram cranks and an internally routed Reverb post.
