Our A8 frameset is from the new breed of aero framesets. Road bike frames that are designed to be fast, letting you set those Strava KOMs, but also designed to be comfortable so that you actually enjoy your time out on the saddle.
We construct the A8 frameset out of high modulus Toray T700 carbon fiber. Our engineers have found the T700 fiber great for working with and perfect for laying up into aerodynamic shapes. Our tapered headtube is a case in point and is shaped perfectly to cut through the air and allow our aero fork to meld into the frame, making the frame and fork look as if they are one.
As you would expect we used our knowledge of internal cable routing to give this frameset clean ports and an easy to use internal routing system. To add to the clean and modern look, we dropped the seat stays. This also has the benefit of helping to stiffen up the back end of the bike, and for the aero advantage, it will give you.
Being as we wanted the frame to be stiff to help you set those Strava times we have fitted a BB86 bottom bracket to this frameset. BB86 allows us to build a big and stiff bottom bracket area, as we are creating a bigger area it allowed our engineers to add more aero refinements to the down tube and bottom bracket area. It also allows us to fit huge chainstays to make sure that we can send all your power to the back wheel to help propel you along the road.
