Frameset: Any bike is only as good as the roads you ride on and that's why we've designed the Maratona to help smooth out the worst road surfaces. By precisely engineering frame tube shapes and carbon layup, we've created a frameset with subtle vertical compliance in the rear triangle for day-long riding comfort. Blending superior grades of carbon fibre in specific frame locations helped us to trim excess weight from the frame and create a comfortable bike with neutral handling that corners like it's on rails and climbs like a true mountain goat. Inspired by Jamie Burrow's victory in the Maratona dles Dolomites it's a truly versatile performer.

Longer chainstays and a taller front end contribute to the Maratona's relaxed riding position while an oversized tapered headtube and monocoque fork ensure sure-footed handling and braking confidence. Comfort is only half the story behind the Maratona, it's also incredibly efficient. The Maratona dances up climbs and can be relied on to help you get to the cafe before the last seat is taken. With Di2 compatible cable routing there's plenty of scope for a future groupset upgrade if you were ever that way inclined.

Groupset: SRAM Force 11 speed, provides lightening quick gear shifts the moment the impulse takes you. Gear changes are crisp with SRAM Force - and a pure pleasure. SRAM's Yaw-equipped front mech provides flawless shifting between rings without ever needing to be trimmed. Its well known that SRAM groupsets weigh significantly less than the competition, and with carbon levers, crank arms and rear derailleur cage, Force 11 is no exception. A definite cut above the rest.

Wheelset: Shimano RS Asymmetric Shimano sweat the details so you don't have to. Lightweight rims are laced to freespinning hubs with high quality spokes to ensure that your wheels accelerate quickly to the slightest pedal input. An asymmetric rear rim profile helps to centre the load from the spokes and allows for a stronger ligther wheel that will stay truer for longer. The RS wheelset offer a real taste of the high end. Weight: 1848g approx

Finishing Kit: Planet X and Prologo A lightweight bike like the Maratona deserves a high spec finishing and we've built it up with a selection of the very best parts in the Planet X finishing kit bag and topped it off with one of Prologo's best selling saddles.
