Mekk certainly hit the mark by using Primo to name their top-of-the-line, truly race-ready road bike. Primo may be a position you grow accustomed to as the aero-optimized, full carbon frame and fork provides the foundation for finding your way to the top step of the podium in any competitive endeavor you may undertake on the road. Spec'd with Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed mechanical components, you know the Primo 6.6 means business.
At the Primo 6.6's heart is a monocoque frame constructed from the finest grade of Japanese carbon fiber. Not only are the sculpted tubes designed to slice through the wind, the stout BB86 bottom bracket is mated to oversized chain stays to make sure there's no power loss through frame flex when you're in the midst of throwing down maximum watts. 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. Shimano's superb Ultegra 6800 11-speed components are just a hair's breadth away from Dura-Ace in performance at a more economical price. The Primo 6.6 features Ultegra 6800 shift/brake levers, derailleurs, and compact crankset for pro-level performance and Shimano's renowned precision and reliability. The no-holds-barred, race-ready theme continues with the inclusion of Mekk's own Saturae deep profile carbon wheels - sporting a 50mm deep profile - topped off by Continental Grand Sport Race tires. There's more Mekk-branded componentry with a rock-solid aluminum handlebar and stem cockpit combined with an aero carbon seatpost. The Italian-made Selle San Marco ERA Dynamic saddle is a stellar touch to let you know the Primo 6.6 is a true road ravishing thoroughbred.
Note: The only difference between this version of the Mekk Primo 6.6 and the version with Nashbar item # MK-PR66 is the color.
