All carbon, incredibly fast, ridiculously aero, powerful and solid BB, smooth on rough roads, flawless shifting, reversible mast for tris vs TT's.


Experienced racers only. Not for recreational use or touring. Puts more stress on hamstrings, but less on your quads and lower back. Not sure light weight riders under 150 lbs or less muscular riders would get the same benefits as the big boys.

Yesterday, I upgraded to all carbon after years riding tris and centuries on aluminum and then titanium frames. But those old school bikes are like running a marathon in combat boots. In comparison, the Slice 1 is like slipping into a pair of your fave racing flats. Cranking up to 30 mph on alum or ti feels wobbly and requires a tremendous effort (by first standing on the pedals before going aero) over about 150 feet.My Slice hit 30mph in half the distance and with half the effort without having to stand. Until today, I never piloted a rocket at Mach speed.Once I hit 37 mph I backed off.The DuraAce grupo ships flawlessly with maximum energy transfer. Credit part of the power transfer to that hunk of a BB. Yes, this bike tracks straight. Don't believe the rants that the Slice can't turn like a crit bike.Just set up the Slice for your size/weight. On your left, Cervelo!
