It is faster than its predecessor, with new aero tube shapes and hidden cables/hoses and we were keen to shed a bit of weight from the original A1R0, so the A1R0evo is lighter, making it better in every situation.
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 but adding asymmetric front forks, a wider bottom bracket shell and 12mm thru axles front and rear. It is stiff...
Yet it is also comfortable thanks to a smaller diameter seatpost and by being optimised around the new fastest 25-28mm tyres. The extra frame stiffness need not interfere with ride quality as wider tyres can be run at lower pressures, have been proven to offer less rolling resistance and, with the addition of our new, wider 28 and 30mm rims, actually be more aero once integrated into the overall frame design.
In line with new rule changes, common sense and improved safety, we will offer the new A1R0evo as disc brake only to allow maximum performance. Versatility is improved by having disc brakes, being lighter and running on wider rubber (you can fit up to 32mm wide tyres), the new A1R0evo will be well suited to a wide range of cycling events, styles and conditions.
