Panaché. This bike has it and so will you. The Nighthawk SL frame features electric blue and greens colors with lust worthy exposed 3k weave carbon fiber. Looking to make your friends even more jealous? This carbon beauty is supported by legendary Campagnolo Record 11 components, Profile Design Cobra handlebars, Reynolds Carbon DV/T 46UL tubular wheels, Tufo tires and the kicker…. it all weighs under 14 pounds!!
The Campagnolo Record carbon crank transmits 100% of your power to the wheel because it features the maximum torsional stiffness of the gruppo. This means you won’t be losing any previous watts as your pedal or sprint to the line. The USB bearings (ultra smooth bearings) ensure your pedal stroke is as smooth as a clean shave. If you have never felt the contours and ergonomics of a Campagnolo Record shifter, you are in for a surprise — Gloves can’t even fit this well on your hands. The derailleurs have drool worthy ceramic ball bushings and carbon plates.
The wheels are stiff and race-ready Reynolds with Tufo’s top of the line S3 Lite racing tubulars. Reynolds “Ultralight (UL), high modulus, unidirectional carbon construction in an aggressive, deep-V profile for incomparable lateral stiffness, strength and reduced weight. The aerodynamic profile balances stability across the flats in a crosswind, with explosive response in and out of the corners of a fast crit. And braking is sure, smooth and quietâ€“better than a standard carbon layup wheel.” Tires matter too. The narrow profile of the tires minimizes aerodynamic drag and resistance, so you’ll be even faster.
If you’re looking to own a bike that will cause immediate envy of your riding buddies, look no further. Your friends won’t be able to go out and buy this bike either. This paint job will be yours and yours alone. It will not be replicated. When you spend this kind of money on your passion, no body else should be able to attain it.
