More than two years in development, Leopard Cycles brings to market one of the most advanced and stunningly beautiful monocoque carbon road bikes in the world. The tubeset design, with transitioning shapes from the headtube to seat tube and bottom bracket provide torsional stiffness (reduction of “twist” through the shape of the tube) to make a responsive, great handling bike as well as preserving the ride quality that has been the hallmark of the CL1 model.
Strengths: Value, factory fitting and impressive High-end performance.
Weaknesses: Seat post configuration doesn't permit a small attaching trunk bag.
This bike is amazingly responsive! It's snappy in turns. The bike almost anticipates your next move. Very nimble in sprints, no lost energy from frame flexation. You can spin out a century ride and still feel ready for another 50 miles more. Very minimal road noise transmitted through front end. This bike is super lightweight. Leopard's online fitting process provided an excellent fit right out of the box. Great paint quality and color scheme. A very unique bike.
