Look 496 Frames

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

Winner of the Tour de France 2006 prologue with leader of the Credit Agricole team, Thor Hushovd. The 496 TT is a by-product of the 496 Athens, a frame developed for the track, and which also enjoys an exceptional CX (air penetration coefficient). Our engineers have, of course, adapted track technology to the specifications of the road. The weight of the frame has been lightened and the stiffness adapted to the discipline. More than 100 hours are necessary to manufacture of this completely hand-made frame.
