The Joule is Elite's answer to the road bike. It is constructed with factory tested and race proven Easton Ultralite double-butted 7005 proprietary tubing. The Joule features a specially mitered hourglass 1 1/8" head tube for increased front end stability and rigidity. The Joule uses all round tubing in accordance to Young's Law of Reflexology, which states that a circular shape will always be the most comfortable and strongest shape possible. The Joule also features an Easton EC90 full carbon rear triangle with a reinforced bottom bracket that ensures maximum power transfer. The Easton full carbon rear triangle minimizes low frequency road vibrations for increased comfort on long rides.

I can't find it in the printed manual (which is very brief), nor in the online manual (20819_Joule_User_Guide.pdf). It seems Jo ... Read More »

I'm switching to this bike from a SWorks Tarmac SL4 as the geometry doesn't fit me and sizing was wrong. Initially I was planning to go titani ... Read More »
Finally got the training bike back with new transmission (Campagnolo record eps, and new rotor crack with quark.) As usual the Joule 2.0 is being a PITA again. I use the joule for some different numbers while I am training. I can get it to pick up the power meter, cadence, and heart rate. The bl ... Read More »
