If triathlons or time trials are your preferred cycling discipline then do we have a value-packed, race-ready steed for you - the Mekk Tripro AL 1 Triathlon Bike. At its core is a triple-butted aluminum frame featuring sculpted tubes designed to slice through the wind while the stout BB86 bottom bracket is mated to a monstrous down tube to make sure there's no power loss through frame flex when you're applying maximum wattage. For added wind-cheating capacity, the rear brake is neatly tucked away under the chain stays while the seat tube sports a recessed section for the rear wheel to tuck into. Up front there's also a full carbon fork with aero blades that features a tapered 1-1/8" to 1.5" steerer for unrivalled stiffness and perfect handling. You'll be ready for triathlons or time trials right out of the box as the Tripro AL 1 includes a cockpit optimized for cheating the wind with its base bar, clip-on aerobar extensions, plus 2x11-speed bar end shifters so you can adjust the gearing to your terrain without leaving the aero position.
The Shimano 105 derailleurs, crankset, and cassette are true workhorses that deliver precision, super-smooth shifting plus an incredibly high standard of durability for the 2x11-speed drivetrain. Complementing the 105 11-speed components is a set of Shimano RS010 aluminum wheels that also deliver superb performance. They feature 24mm deep rims, 20 front/24 rear spokes, plus Shimano's renowned smooth-rolling hubs. The wheelset is paired with Continental Ultra Race 700x25 tires that are the epitome of dependability. Furthermore, a San Marco ERA Startup Triathlon saddle adds a touch of Italian craftsmanship to the mix.
Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK), a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling in both the racing and production realms.
