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:we love SRAM's Rival 11 (22-speed) groupset and so do our customers. Rival 11 has quickly become the most popular groupset we offer due to its striking combination of precise shifting, practical ergonomics and low weight. SRAM's innovative Double Tap shifting provides instantaneous gear shifts from the lightest touch at the controls. Rival's dual pivot brake callipers can be relied upon to slow you down in a hurry whenever you haul on the brakes, whether you're racing or putting the miles in during long weekend rides. Not forgetting the wide-range 11-32 teeth cassette option to help you spin up the steepest climbs; with quality like this, its easy to see why SRAM Rival is so well regarded.

Wheelset: FSA Vision team 35 Semi Aero The latest semi aero wheels from Vision push performance to the limit with a 35mm deep rim profile, bladed aero spokes from Sapim and meticulously constructed, 11-speed cartridge bearing hubs. Their good looks are every bit as striking and their wind cheating performance thanks to their deep anodised rim treatment, radially laced front wheel and straight pull laced rear hub.

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.

Big miles, long rides, and rough roads the Maratona will tame them all with its magic carpet ride. Designed to tackle the challenges of Gran Fondo riding and epic days out in the Alps, Dolomites and Pyrenees, if you're on the hunt for a new sportive bike put the Maratona on your wish list.
