Carrera SL 730 | $4995 Frameset
Carrera engineers have designed the perfect climbers bike. All carbon technology at Carrera's disposal was used to create an extremely light but secure, rigid, stable and responsive machine. Key features of the SL 730 are the materials, the production method and the tube shapes. The frame materials are T800 high modulus and high strength 60 ton carbon that is impregnated with a special nano graphite resin derived from aerospace industry. This resin allows the the carbon fibre strands to stretch and make a more uniform structure, reduce wall thickness and increases strength by 5% to 10%. The production method is a Vacuum Bladder Moulding using EPS technology for the tubes and EPU technology fr the head tube and bottom bracket shell. EPS is expandable polystyrene shell and this is used to even out the material for superior rigidity and strength and at the same time reduce the weight. Finally the tube shapes are optimized to increase control, responsiveness and comfort. The front triangle uses square to round shapes for the best precision riding and at same time with more comfort. The rear triangle features asymetrical chainstays for more power to the drive side and the Dual Flat seatstays improve compliance and comfort. Combined with a 330 gram monocoque fork this frame maybe the best road bike on the planet. The SL730 cable routing will accept both electronic and mechanical systems.
The SL730 is sold as a frameset and can be built personalized to the cyclists specifications. Choose from electronic or mechanical groups from Campagnolo, Shimano or Sram, lightweight wheels, carbon bar and stem and saddle of choice. We have built this bike in the 13 lb range.
