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.

The SLICE IS:

  • AERO SAVE technology keeps you fresher for the run.
  • Light weight frame makes climbing a breeze.
  • Simple, straightforward design keeps packing, set-up and maintenance headaches to a minimum.
  • Rider profile:

    Ideal for serious triathletes who want world-class performance that’s easy to set-up, travel with, and maintain.

    TECHNOLOGIES

    • 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.
    • Two-Position Seatpost
      The two-position Slice seatpost offers a range of effective seat angle adjustment from 73-78 degrees for Triathlon or UCI legal time trial use.
    • 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.
