New for 2017, the Nashbar Carbon Ultegra Road Bike is one lightweight rocket ship that provides everything you need to excel on the tarmac - be it races, fondos, spirited group rides, or just solo sessions on your favorite routes. At its heart is a C5 high-modulus carbon fiber frame for an ideal combination of performance and comfort in an all-around competition-grade road platform. The C5 carbon weaving process translates into a frame that is incredibly stiff without adding unnecessary weight. The carbon frame features a BB86 bottom bracket for added stiffness and weight savings while the oversized chainstays and minimalist seatstays ensure a stiff platform for climbing and sprinting as well as comfort throughout long days in the saddle. The carbon fiber fork, with a 1-1/8" - 1-1/2" taper alloy steerer, is lightweight and ensures responsive, predictable handling.
Shimano's renowned Ultegra 6800 components are spec'd where they count - at the shift/brake levers and front/rear derailleurs - which guarantees flawless shifting and pro-level performance. A FSA Gossamer mid-compact crankset with 52/36 chainrings combined with a Shimano 105 5800 11-28T cassette strikes an optimal balance for gear ratios to handle steep ascents, steep descents, as well as flatter roads with equal aplomb. Vuelta Zerolite Comp wheels are reliable, all-around performers and the Shimano R561 dual-pivot brakes provide confident, well-modulated stopping power.
