With a newly designed, extremely light carbon frame, the Affair will go any distance. The frame weighs a paltry 840 grams, the front fork weighs a light 330 g and is one particular technical highlight. Innovative ideas also come to the fore when you look at the seat posts, cable routing & rear brake. The dynamic design of the racing bike is topped off by its sporty decals. Racing dynamic Smooth balanced riding, maximum comfort and a relaxed seating position: The new Affair convinces through its outstanding racing dynamic.For the highest possible stiffness the classic tapered steerer has been increased from 1 “ to 1¼“ on top and from 1¼‘‘ to 1½‘‘ on bottom. Reverse Dropouts (RDOs) allow for a particular fork design that noticeably improves comfort without loosing stiffness and steering precision. New seat post, a variable hanger and variable cable inlets also come into play here.A further particularity is the rear break: Being directly mounted to the chain stays means that it offers best breaking power and a clear look. The replaceable chain keeper – a chain catcher behind the crank – protects frame and rider from a dangerous chain suck.
