For 2018 we are developing a new version of our popular RR1 do-it-all race bike - the RR1evo.
Faster - New tube shapes and a straighter top tube mean that it will be more aero.
Lighter - Revised carbon lay-up makes for a lighter frame.
Stiffer - The evo will be stiffer than the current RR1 thanks to 12mm thru axles front and rear, asymmetric chainstays and front forks and a wider downtube / bottom bracket junction.
Comfortable - The RR1evo is optimised around 28mm tubeless tyres and our new 30mm wide Handsling carbon rims.
Versatile - The RR1evo will take up to 32mm tyres, making it a true do-it-all frame. Gravel road shortcut? No problem.
Modern - It will be disc brake only following rule changes for road racing.

We are working on a new A1R0evo frame to replace the existing A1R0 in 2018.
Fast - even faster than its predecessor with new aero tube shapes and hidden cables and hoses.
Lighter - we were keen to shed a bit of weight from the original A1R0, so for 2018 the A1R0evo is lighter, making it better in every situation.
Stiffer - we didn't want to lose the stiffness that racers loved the A1R0 for, so we have gone even further with the A1R0evo retaining the asymmetric chainstays and adding asymmetric front forks, a wider bottom bracket shell and 12mm thru axles front and rear.
Comfort - by optimising the A1R0evo around the new fastest 28mm tyres, the extra frame stiffness need not interfere with ride quality. 28mm tyres can be run at lower pressures, have been proven to offer less rolling resistance and, with the addition of our new, wider 30mm rim, actually be more aero once integrated into the overall frame design.
Versatile - being lighter and running on wider rubber, the new A1R0evo will be suited to a wide range of race - and not so race - conditions.
Modern - disc brake only to allow maximum performance.
Continuing our theme of developing our frames, we have a new CEXevo coming out in 2018. The factory have just sent us the first snaps of the first frame to roll off the production line...
It is made of Toray 800 series carbon and notably has no rear seatstay bridge.
It will be a lighter frame while being just as stiff as the current race winning CEX.
It takes up to 40mm tyres and so, as well as a serious cyclocross frame, should make a great gravel and beach racer.
More details to follow soon.
NEW RRSLD disc brake frame
The new RRSLD for flat mount disc brakes and thru axles will be available soon.
NEW A1R2D available to order
The new Handsling Bikes A1R2D disc brake road frame for flat mount discs and with the added stiffness of thru axles is available now.
Differential Carbon Lay-up
As our frames are made to order we can build them to suit each rider.
'Differential carbon lay-up' is designed to perfectly match the amount of carbon used and frame resilience to rider weight and power.
We can build frames for riders all the way up to 160kgs.
Available on all our frames. Please contact us for details.
