4000 PRO SL Ultegra firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone claims to have the fastest bike on the market, but we’ve actually produced it. We took the 4000 frameset and its components to the A2 Wind Tunnel and tested it from every angle, with multiple parts, in order to design a superbike that performs just as well in the wind tunnel as it does on the lava fields of Hawaii. Not only is the 4000 outrageously fast, it’s one of the best fitting, most comfortable bikes on the market because we know that after 112 miles on the bike... your body’s still got 26.2 to go. And for 2013, our new proprietary carbon lay-up allowed us to reduce weight and increase frame compliance, making the rider experience that much better.
202 Firecrest CCL wheels www.capecycles.co.za
Zipp’s Firecrest technology, with its distinctive profile, has now made it to its 202 carbon clincher wheels with their 32mm deep rims. The principle behind the unique shape is that the rear half of the rim (the second leading edge) mimics the tyre – the front leading edge – to reduce drag to just 131g compared to 324g for standard box section-type rims. Zipp also claims that the Firecrest 202 has a better aero performance than standard V-section aero wheels with rims up to 55mm deep – impressive for a 32mm deep wheel. At 1,375g, the new 202’s low weight translates to instant acceleration and highly capable climbing. But where they excel is in blustery
conditions, handling crosswinds better than the leading aluminium wheels we’ve tried. The braking matches the wheels’ consistent all-round performance, thanks to the included set of soft gummy Platinum Evo pads, which feature a 10 percent greater braking surface area and disperse heat build-up. All in all, great handling, low weight, clincher convenience and brilliant braking seal the deal.
