Some info regarding the Revolution team cycling, Phoenix pro and Indoor bike
Lighter, stiffer and more durable than its predecessor, there is a lot to like about the R1B carbon-fibre outsole to maintain high levels of stiffness, vital for efficient power transfer. Two Boa dials help lock your feet in and do a very good job of it. Microadjustment is possible and it’s easy to get them off quickly thanks to a quickrelease function. At a claimed 227g for a size 42.5, they are relatively lightweight compared to similarly priced rivals. A neutral footbed also means that these should suit most, if not all, foot shapes. One thing to keep an eye out for is sizing. The size 42s we had on test were a little on the large side, so it would be a good idea to try before you buy to get the perfect fit that such a big spend deserves.
If you spend a few minutes browsing through our copy, then you probably know that we’re not exactly purists when it comes to cycling kit. Sure, we occasionally privilege traditional designs and styles over the latest trends in tube shapes and colorways, but we’re open-minded about adopting new technologies when they suit our purposes – especially when a manufacturer applies the latest fancy technology to the basics of cycling. More than almost any other bike we stock, the Aernario Basic Shimano Ultegra Complete Road Bike is one of the best blends of tradition, innovation, and solid build kit that we’ve rolled through our shop doors. For the frameset, Storck used Computer Flow Dynamics to tease aerodynamic tube shapes out of a geometry that balances the low-weight aggression of compact frames with a nod to the more cantankerous, classic-geometry purists among us. Though it’s subtle, the wind-dodging design is inherited from Storck’s time trial frames, so it’s both invisible to the eye and the wind. And since the module’s overall shape and design borrows heavily from the Fascenario 0. 7, the aerodynamic benefits don’t come with the usual tradeoff of poor handling and unforgiving road feel. When viewing the frame from the side, it looks like a traditional road frame. However, if you were to take a cross section, its aero shape would become strikingly evident. These shapes are laid-up with Storck’s own CFR/UD unidirectional carbon fiber. This curated material is the main reason why Storck has so many BOTY awards from the German cycling industry, as the unidirection orientation of the fibers mean that the sheets can be situated for targeted load-bearing properties. This lets Storck stiffen the frame without sacrificing damping qualities and – paradoxically – while using less material for a lower overall weight. The Aernario features a massive, oversized PressFit BB86 bottom bracket juncture in order to boost power transfer even further, and the seatstays connect.
Behold Nashbar’s latest road thoroughbred: the CR5. It’s ready for high performance riding – be it racing, fondos, or just spirited group rides – right out of the box with its stellar combination of full carbon fiber frame and fork, Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, Shimano RS11 wheels, plus FSA bars, stem, brakes, and bottom bracket. The CR5 features a new and improved UD carbon fiber frame plus a full UD carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube. The frame’s sculpted tubing profiles coupled with a massive BB30 bottom bracket shell provide the perfect balance between incredible stiffness, light weight, as well as a smooth, responsive ride. All of the cables are internally routed for a super-clean aesthetic while the frame is also set up for Di2 electronic shifting if you ever want to make the leap from mechanical systems. And the sleek satin finish on both the frame and fork makes for quite the sharp visual statement. Component-wise, you’d be hard-pressed to find a finer choice gram for gram, dollar for dollar than Shimano’s superb Ultegra 6800 11-speed system. The CR5 features plenty of it: shift/brake levers, crankset, front derailleur, rear derailleur, and cassette. The shifting is just perfect while the compact 50/34T crankset ensures you can both tame any climb as well as contest rip roaring county line sprints. It’s definitely impressive just how well these components works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brother Dura-Ace that Ultegra is a tour de force in its own right. Shimano also cranks out remarkable wheels and the RS11s are a paragon of versatility. Their 24mm-deep aluminum rims strike a balance between aerodynamics and handling while stainless steel bladed spokes, 16 front and 20 rear, will slice through the wind with aplomb. And these wheels aren’t just for race day as they’re sturdy and reliable enough to put through the paces day-in and day-out. There’s no skimping regarding tires, too, as a se
