The Sportif bucks all the time honored reasons not to ride a bike. It’s comfortable, it’s sporty, it’s well-equipped, and quite a lot of bike for the price. It’s everything you need to get out the door and go. Taking geometry cues from our top-level endurance bike, the Gran Fondo, the Sportif's longer wheelbase and taller headtube position the rider efficiently to reduce arm fatigue and back strain while on the road.
Models with endurance geometry feature a taller headtube and longer chainstay that put the rider in a more upright riding position and increases bicycle stability providing a fast and spirited ride but without the discomfort of an aggressive race posture.
Wave seatstays disrupt and diffuse road vibration and provide a slight vertical flex increasing your comfort on the bike and smoothing out your ride.
Complementing our premium frames, the ultra high-modulous monocoque full carbon fork is lighter and provides a smoother ride.
Cables are routed inside the frames tubes for improved aerodynamics, longer cable life and a clean aesthetic.
Tapered head tube provides increased stiffness and stability in the front end via a larger lower bearing with minimal added weight.
Thru-axles slide through a closed dropout increasing wheel security and the overall lateral stiffness of a frame creating a bike that has precise steering and optimal control.
Ample clearance allows for up to 35mm tires.
