We made extensive use of computational fluid dynamics in designing the Exocet 2 to cut through the air. The tubeset profiles are based on US National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) system for optimised aerodynamics. An engineering modelling technique that's as effective as wind tunnel testing, but doesn't cost thousands of quid an hour. We think you can live without pictures of guys in white coats looking at instrument panels and fans if it means you get a world-class time trial frame for less.

Timetrial riding is all about power and aerodynamics. The Exocet 2 is fully loaded with features that tick both these boxes several times over. Let's have some bullet points

  • Toray T800 carbon fibre is used for the whole Exocet 2 frame. Light, stiff, adaptable. Just an amazing material to construct a bicycle with.
  • Press-fit BB30 bottom bracket. The stiffest BB ever designed.
  • With a flush press-fit BB there's no external bearing cups to cause air drag. To further calm the airflow we've designed a neat carbon cover over the lower cable routing. Cunning.
  • Internal cable routing is an essential feature on TT bikes. Less drag. Less grime ingress. The Exocet 2's routing is a thing of beauty.
  • The monster down tube continues the witness-the-stiffness design. The leading edge of the down tube is sharply shaped to slice through the air.
  • The seat tube sits close to the rear tyre but there's enough room for running 23mm tyres for comfort and cornering grip if the race course dictates.
  • Exquisitely executed integrated fork/down tube - gets the air flowing around the fork and over the down tube.
  • Taper-steerer aerodynamic fork for low drag and better handling on twisty courses.
  • Tall chain stay profiles deliver all your pedal power to the rear wheel. Stays also feature adjustable rear dropouts for tucking in the rear wheel if desired.
  • Low-slung seat stays complete and incredibly stiff and responsive rear triangle.
  • Aero seat post and flush seat clamp. Twin position seat post for perfecting your pedalling.

Like our N2a road race frame, the Exocet 2 was designed in collaboration with renowned Italian bike designer Roberto Billato, a frame-builder and carbon fibre specialist with over 30 years' experience. Roberto's Unrivalled knowledge of carbon fibre design and construction means you can depend on the Exocet 2 to get you to the finish line fast for years to come.

    • Approximate weight: 8.4 kg

Torque settings:

    • The seat post clamp bolts: 5-6 Nm
    • The saddle clamp bolt: 6-8 Nm
    • NB: All Exocet models are available with a HED DIsc/ Trispoke wheel package upgrade for the ultimate in aero performanceforce exocet
