The Cannondale Slice RS Ultegra 2013 Triathlon Bike is ''Simply Fast''. A time-tested, proven design that combines great aerodynamics, stable geometry, light weight and smooth comfort, all in a simple, easy-to-use package. With the world record for the Iron-Distance races, the Kona course record and three back-to-back Ironman World Championship victories under its belt, the Slice's record speaks for itself. AERO SAVE Micro-Suspension System - an elegant combination of directional tube shaping and sophisticated carbon lay-up allows the rear chain stays and seat stays to deflect together vertically, so the bike absorbs the shock, not you. Stay aero longer and come off the bike faster. Stable Geometry - unlike the nervous, twitchy handling of some aero frames, the Slice's geometry is designed to provide stable and confidence inspiring handling while in the aero position, allowing you to relax and focus on your ride. Maintenance-friendly design - standard road brakes, a normal stem/steerer design, straightforward cable routing and vertical rear dropouts all give up a bit of pure aero advantage to the superbike designs, but potentially save hours of pre-race set-up stress.
The Slice RS Ultegra 2013 Triathlon Bike features a full carbon Slice RS AERO SAVE, PF30, Naero-Tec frame and full carbon Slice RS Aero fork with integrated external steerer as well as Shimano 105 5700 12-25 10-speed cassette, FSA Trimax alloy rings, Shimano Ultegra 6700 derailleurs and Dura Ace bar-end shifters.
