It is otherwise the same bike, with a bowed top tube design and oversized alloy construction for better durability. The handlebars have an ergonomic design that uses aluminum in the construction and a short drop, butted shape. The stem is shim-adjustable with a 31.8mm bar clamp that enables positioning at any height. The frame itself is made of A1 Premium Aluminum, which is built stiff for better power transfer and control. The fork is a FACT carbon/alloy that offers good accuracy for steering. 8-speeed Shimano shifters are used for smooth and precise gear shifting.
