The SL Road is cycling stripped down to arguably its purest form. Sleek, light and simple, its sole purpose is to transport you from A to B with the minimum of fuss. Featuring an aluminium frame built from light, strong, double-butted tubes for the best combination of strength, comfort and durability, we matched this efficiently pared-down chassis with a rigid aluminium fork for nimble handling and low weight. Reliable, slick-shifting Shimano 2×8-speed gears keep working smoothly through all weathers, thanks partly to internal cable routing and its ability to reduce wear and tear. And powerful hydraulic disc brakes mean you’ll always be in control, so you can stop safely in all weathers. It may lack bells, whistles and other adornments, but the SL Road’s simplicity is its raison d’être. Fast from point to point, whether on your daily commute or a training ride on country roads, it represents both great value and minimalist cool. What more could you need?
