The Handsling A1R0evo is our ultimate road frame. Stiff, robust, lightweight, aero and with room for 32mm tyres, it is a real do-it-all road bike - and it does it all really fast!
The first Handsling frame designed 100% in-house, it engineered by one of the best in the business and is manufactured using moulds owned exclusively by Handsling.
It is UCI approved with optimised frame profile for aerodynamics and stiffness, the A1R0evo will do everything well, from storming tight city centre crits to conquering steep mountain passes to floating over Belgian cobbles.
Manufactured using Toray T800 carbon, one of the strongest, toughest carbons on the market
Internal EPS internal moulds used for increased carbon compaction, eliminating small imperfections to make the frame tougher, lighter, and stiffer
Rigorous destructive testing procedure to surpass ISO standards
Race geometry is classic Handsling that has been proven in national championships, tight city centre criteriums, cobbled Belgian classics, fast road races and mountainous sportives
Truncated, D-shaped aerodynamic tube profiles
Frame is aero in a wide variety of conditions, no matter the yaw angle
Hidden cable handlebars for clean look and aerodynamic efficiency
Downtube flairs out to the full width of the BB86 bottom bracket
Hourglass head tube is massively stiff and oversized, yet aero
Fork and chainstays are asymmetric in design to withstand twisting forces
12mm thru axles further enhance frame and wheel stiffness
Frame accepts up to 32mm tyres, increasing comfort levels and opening up all sorts of possibilities
Larger tyres enhance comfort so frame can be built with more lateral stiffness
Unique aero seattube shape which thins to a standard diameter seatpost
Seatpost is an aero, truncated D-shape and utilises a clever, non-stick seat clamp expander bolt hidden under the top tube
Fully hidden cable design
Choice of 3 integrated bar/stem options included with frameset. Choose from either:
The beautifully sculpted Sportive integrated one piece carbon handlebar
The stiffer Race integrated one piece carbon handlebar
The super stiff, Aero Sprint two piece carbon handlebar and stem
"I was looking for a high-performance road bike for amateur races and triathlons, but also for club rides and blasting around the local lanes. I just don’t get how they made A1R0evo so stiff and responsive, but also so comfortable. I went for 28c tyres and the bike ploughs through road debris and potholes. The ride is assured and comes alive when you’re going full gas.”
"I have finally today finished building my Handsling. I’m just back from its first ride. And WOW. What a great bike. So smooth yet fast and stiff. Can’t wait to get out and ride it some more over the weekend. You really have designed a great bike here."
"As I say blown away with how it rides. It rides as well maybe even slightly better than my S works tarmac haha."
"I am blown away by the performance of the bike in all situations flats, descents, acceleration and even more astonished by the improvement in my climbing. So much so that friends are now questioning what has happened to their performance! In total transparency I tell them “it’s not me, it’s the bike”."
"I got out on it tonight, what a machine. Many thanks."
"Still loving the bike! Had my first tubeless puncture today and it seems to have sealed fine so that's great."
"Just wanted to follow up now that it's been almost six months since I received the A1R0evo. The weather is starting to turn for the better and I have been able to get out and ride more consistently with the earlier sunrises. The new bike rides great! I've been having a blast and riding much faster on my solo training rides which the new rig. I am very pleased indeed."
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wheels! They are super fast and very comfortable. I got the deep combo 50mm/55mm wheels with tubeless tyres."
"In non Corona news... It's finally dry enough to crack out my new bike properly, and it's excellent!"
