Its race-proven combination of endurance geometry, light weight and road-smoothing comfort has won it everything from Spring Classics to Bike of the Year accolades. It might just be the best all-around road bike we've ever made.

SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION
The flattened and helixed shapes of the rear stays allow them to flex to absorb shock and keep the wheel tracking smoothly over bumps. The 25.4 seatpost and seat tube deflect together for improved comfort in the saddle.
SAVE PLUS FORK
The shaped fork blades and off set dropouts allow the front wheel to rack smoothly over rough surfaces for amazing comfort and control.
The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet the wide, 73mm BB30A for maximum stiff ness with minimal weight.
Slightly slacker head angles, slightly longer wheelbase and a head tube stack height 2â€“2.5cm taller than our Elite Race geo offers increased comfort and stability on all road surfaces, while maintaining a racy feel.
