The first of our in-house designed frames is the new CEXevo cyclocross gravel frame.

Evolution

The CEXevo is an evolution of the race and championship winning CEX frame. We wanted to make small improvements to improve performance so looked to improve the material we used to build it, the frame weight, frame stiffness, the mud clearance of the frame and the comfort levels.

Material

The CEXevo is made from Toray 800 series carbon to reduce the weight so is now a better climber, easier to carry over obstacles and to run with when the going gets really tough.

Frame Weight

Frame weight is 870g for a 52cm frame and 370g for the front fork.

Stiffness

Though lighter, it has lost none of the stiffness of the race winning CEX it replaces. We have added extra carbon where the frame needs it the most.

15mm front and 12mm rear thru axles mean the CEXevo is rock solid under hard efforts making climbing a breeze.

It is a stiff frame - all of your power will definitely go towards forward motion - but it is also a tough frame, well suited to the rigours of cyclocross racing and fast gravel riding.

Mud Clearance

The Handsling CEXevo has no rear seatstay bridge to give even better mud clearance. With 32 or 33mm cyclocross tyres on there is plenty of clearance to cope with even the muddiest of days. The CEXevo will even take up to 45mm tyres and so makes a great gravel bike and beach racer.

Comfort Levels

One benefit of removing the rear brake bridge is that we have vastly improved comfort levels of the CEXevo and increased comfort leaves you fresher for that final sprint to the finish line.

The other area this benefits is in rear wheel traction on loose ground. Its harder to quantify but it is there.

Handling

The Handsling CEXevo offers super stable handling to carry you faster, with more confidence, down descents and yet still climbs with all the speed you need.

The relaxed geometry makes it super stable and therefore a doddle to ride fast.

Paired with our new 30mm wide, 40mm deep tubeless wheels or our 28mm wide, 40mm deep tubulars this builds up into a race ready bike that is light and quick but also super comfortable like never before.

Testimonials

"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... 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 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 was looking for a high-performance road bike for amateur races and triathlons, but also 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.”

"Just wanted to follow up now that it's been almost six months since I received the A1R0evo, 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."
