SwiftCarbon launches ‘category-breaker’ RaceVox Disc

SwiftCarbon teased the RaceVox Disc at the 2018 edition of Eurobike and this year’s show gave us the opportunity to check out the finished version of the Portuguese company’s latest race bike.

The RaceVox is described as a ‘category-breaker’ and is designed to offer aerodynamics, comfort and low weight in one package.

With that in mind, all cables are hidden and the bottle bosses are recessed to apparently improve aerodynamics. SwiftCarbon has also used Vision’s Metron 5D integrated cockpit to keep the front-end clean.

Meanwhile, the seatstays are dropped to offer more comfort, and there’s also clearance for 28mm tyres (you can probably squeeze in 30mm tyres, according to SwiftCarbon, depending on the rim width).

As for weight, SwiftCarbon says the flagship RaceVox comes in at 7.1kg.

That top-end bike with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and Reynolds AR wheels costs £6,290 through the SwiftCarbon website.
