Competitive Road Geometry

Competitive Road Geometry

In order to navigate the most harrowing descents, yet still be responsive enough to throw around in a sprint or up a climb, you need a bike that handles predictably and confidently. Our Competitive Road Geometry takes classic road bike geometry, and combines it with optimized head and seat tube angles and fork offsets that produce rock solid handling, regardless of the terrain. Not only does this create a bike that handles a broad range of road events, but overall fit is also improved with the added benefit of ensuring comfort and performance.

Rider-First Geometry

Rider-First Geometry

Learning from McLaren’s advanced testing approach, we developed industry-first simulation models and dynamic testing protocols that gave our engineers an unprecedented ability to understand exactly how various sized bicycles respond to different stresses. This data allowed us to engineer frames that take into account the most important element on a bike—the rider. As a result, we're able to identify specific performance targets for each of the seven frame sizes and then independently engineer each one in order to achieve the discrete performance targets. This means consistent performance for every bike, regardless of size.
