The Slice 4 is a lower-end model, as it incorporates an FSA Gossamer BB30 crankshaft with SRAM 1090 shifters and SRAM RIVAL derailleurs. The Gossamer is an inexpensive crankset oftentimes utilized as an alternative to standard units. It utilizes a monocoque design in the spider and crankarms, with AL7075 100% CNC machined chainrings. Included also in the Slice 4 — as well as its peers — is the Slice Active Vibration Damping system, which soaks up ‘road buzz’ so that riders don’t have to. Note also the Slice Carbon frame, which is lightweight, but maintains a powerful stiffness-to-weight ratio.
