Stradalli Cycle Full Carbon Road Bike “R7” Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 The R7 is the smoothest riding frame we have ever produced. The radically thin seatstays allow for unprecedented vertical compliance, even as the over-sized chainstays produce maximum power transfer from the crank to the wheels. The frame is built around a BB30 to maximize power transfer from the rider to the wheel. The headtube uses a “tapered design” to increase front end stiffness, and allow for better tracking through corners. Tapered headtubes further improved the already advanced carbon frame technology with substantially increased front-end stiffness without additional weight. One of the highest quality carbon frame manufactures pioneered the oversized headtube approach to deliver a solid feel all the way through out of the saddle efforts and high speed descents. A stable front on a road bike is not only a nice to have performance feature but a vital safety bonus as well. This bike climbs in addition to it descends. The Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 group shares the same technology as the higher-end Dura Ace group, but at a fraction of the price. The 11 tooth cassette has more gearing options than ever, and the new cranks now have more options, as well. Like our Dura Ace equipped R7, the battery on the Ultegra Di2 model is located in the FSA SL-K seatpost. Our new 40mm Full Carbon Clincher Wheelset features a 27mm wide rim at the brake track. The wider rim creates a more aerodynamic profile, offers more keep an eye on crosswinds, and better handling and keep an eye on. Our new profile creates better aerodynamics at wider yaw angle. We all know that you are never riding head on into a headwind. In other words, our new 27mm wide rim is more aerodynamic in crosswinds than our previous model. The rim being wider at the break track also means the tire is spread further apart, taking into account a larger contact patch with the ground. This allows for better handling, especially at speed. The wider rim just flat out looks cooler than our skinnier models, and we all know that’s what matters most! The Stradalli R7 frame is comparable to many other frames designed with thin seatstays, some of which retail for over $11,000 for the frame alone!Stradalli offers high-end carbon bikes in order to leave you scratching your head when trying to compare the price tag to Cervelo, Specialized, Trek, Time, Look ,Scott, Eddy Merckx, Orbea , Pinerello, or Cannondale.
