The EC-130E smashed a £2500 aero road bike test in the summer edition of Cycling Active and now Cycling Weekly have awarded it 'Aero Road Bike Of The Year', all the magazines agree the EC130-E is simply unbeatable. Leaving best selling bikes from Specialized, BMC, Scott and many others trailing in its wake the EC103-E has become the bike that every rider wants to get their hands on.

  • Toray T800 full carbon aero road frameset
  • SRAM RED eTap groupset (22-speed)
  • Vision Team 35 aero wheelset
  • Weight: circa 7.45kg (small)

The EC-130-E is built to perform. With class-leading aerodynamics, an incredibly stiff pedalling platform and efficient power transfer, it has been designed from the ground up to help dramatically improve your cycling performance and carry you over the line first.

Frame: The EC-130-E frameset was created to slice through the air and extract every last watt of leg power. Advanced computer modelling of frame tube profiles and fluid dynamics has delivered a frameset that not only has a remarkable low drag profile but is also surprisingly light for an aero road bike.

Each EC-130E is created with our 'EPS Inside' moulding technology. Main tube frame junctions are laid up over pre-shaped EPS formers. This allows for a more accurate placement of carbon in the mould and helps to eliminate wrinkles inside of the frame to deliver stronger, lighter frames with absolute consistency from frame to frame. Meticulously crafted from Toray's finest T800 IM the EC-130-E is the product of rigorous design and inspirational thinking. After one short ride you'll know the EC-130-E has to be your next Fast Aero Road bike.

Groupset: SRAM Red eTAP is SRAM's finest road groupset and their take on the cutting edge of wireless electronic shifting. SRAM Red eTAP features all their incredible groupset technologies. Carbon fibre shift levers feature SRAM's ErgoBlade lever design with superb ergonomics and ZeroLoss shifting for the fastest most precise gear changes you can find. SRAM's Red crankset features their Exogram technology with a hollow carbon fibre crank arm transmitting all your riding power straight to the back wheel with minimal loss.

SRAM's RED rear mech features AeroGlide pulleys with ceramic bearings, Exact Actuation for faster shifts with a lighter touch on the controls. . When it comes time to haul on the anchors the SRAM RED brakeset offers effortless modulation. SRAM's smart AeroLink system offers improved leverage ratios, control and stopping power over standard dual pivot set-ups.

Even with all these great features SRAM RED eTap is pretty much the lightest e-shift groupset you can buy, packed with carbon fibre parts, titanium bolts and clever CNC machining it really does offer the very best.

Wheelset Vision's new Team 35 wheelset delivers remarkable, lightweight, aero performance in a package of striking good looks. Sandblasted and deep anodized rims are laced with forged, bladed spokes that cut through the air with minimum drag. CNC machined hubs spin on fully sealed cartridge bearings providing low drag and rapid acceleration. This is a top quality wheelset that's perfect for all out efforts and day long training rides.

Finishing kit: We've revisited our tried-and-tested Italian theme for the finishing kit - San Marco provide the racing perch and Italian accessory masters Selcof deliver the oversized bar and stem. We've kitted the wheels out with a top-notch set of race tyres, lightweight slicks, with bags of grip that'll give you the extra confidence you'll need to push harder and brake later into every corner.

The EC-130-E is for the serious competitor in all of us. It skilfully blends the performance advantage of an elegantly designed aero frameset with the lightweight advantage that only hand-finished carbon construction can deliver. It's our ultimate fast aero road bike.
