Product Description

Empella's Ad van Empel finally reveals the brand new Bonfire SL. Three years in the making, the new Bonfire SL promises to be a big hit with the Spaar Select team and customers as well. This new frame is made from a triple butted 7003 tubeset with custom profiles. Note: Color is a beautiful pearl white with a multi-color sheen that really plays tricks with you eyes in the sunlight (notice the dark blue headtube lettering has a purple tone).

Strengths:    Light weight and handling

Weaknesses:    The carbon fork can get into some pretty violent oscillations (fore/aft) when braking very hard.

Bottom Line:   
Overall, this is a great bike. It rides very well, is very light, and has exceptionally good handling (but what would you expect from someone that only makes 'cross bikes)
