A state-of-the-art high-pressure molding process used to produce complex-shaped carbon fiber components creates a unique two piece saddle frame that yields the perfect balance of support and comfort.
Aero Carbon Spokes
High tensile-strength CADEX aero carbon spokes minimize lateral flex for more efficient acceleration and climbing and feature a purpose designed aero shape offering excellent aerodynamic characteristics as well as superior stability in shifting winds, all at the lightest weight possible.
Durable, ultra-hard ceramic bearings further increase hub rolling efficiency with lower rolling resistance and 1.5x smoother action than steel bearings.
CADEX Hookless Rim Technology
A broad inner rim width and durable continuous carbon fiber structure create a rounder tire shape for superior grip and handling plus added sidewall support for cornering, all without compromising on weight.
An integrated front hub design reinforces axle support and eliminates play by replacing the standard end cap, bearing and bushing interface with an integrated axle running the length of the hub. This increases thru-axle support and boosts the lateral stiffness of the entire structure.
CADEX R-Drive Freehub System
With anodized hub internals to enhance durability and a redesigned anti-dust cover for maximum longevity, the R-Drive Freehub System offers a 60-point ratchet tooth and optimized spring design. The result is immediate, efficient power transmission and uncompromised reliability.
Custom-Tuned DBL Technology
Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology sets spokes at a wider bracing angle and for the same tension level under pedaling force, producing a stiffer, more efficient wheel with outstanding power transfer.
Exclusive Sync Ergonomics Components
CADEX-exclusive Sync Ergonomic components including arm rests, extensions and grips provide body, arm and high-hand support while allowing the rider to stay in the aero racing position over long hours.
Integrated Rail Design
Relieves pressure points by positioning the saddle rail connections to the base in an area that’s not a contact point for riders. The shape of the rails also helps dissipate road vibration, and by eliminating the overlapping joint area normally found on saddles, unnecessary weight is avoided.
Precision machined internals eliminate excessive bearing load, reduce bearing friction and minimize rolling resistance.
CADEX One Piece Mold Manufacturing
One-piece, no-bond manufacturing utilizes high-grade carbon fiber and CADEX precision layup technique to eliminate the added weight and flex found in traditionally bonded bars.
Optimal Air Transition
21mm inner rim provides unparalleled aerodynamics through optimal air transition from tire sidewall to wheel.
Lightweight Reactive Foam
Developed especially for use in CADEX saddles, this high-density EVA foam combines a durable lightweight structure with maximum rebound and vibration dampening characteristics.
Particle Flow Technology
Free-flowing, CADEX-specific ETPU particles, strategically placed in two separate pockets at the contact area, mold to the rider’s unique pelvic contact condition. This eases pressure points and distributes that pressure across a broader contact area for a firmer, more comfortable ride.
Precision Reinforced Layup
CADEX precision reinforced layup places high tensile strength carbon fiber only where needed, creating a strong, stiff structure at minimal weight.
CADEX R3-C40 Aero Hub
Aero optimized hub features 3rd generation CADEX Low-Friction internals with CADEX ceramic bearings and 40-tooth ratchet engagement.
The unique chassis of the CADEX Tri frameset—a massive down tube with no top tube—included in the upper section of the down tube allows the rider to quickly and easily access nutrition while remaining in the most optimized riding position.
Race Shield Puncture Protection
With an exclusive ultra-lightweight and cut-resistant Kevlar® material incorporated into the casing, Race Shield provides superior puncture protection without compromising speed or road feel.
Race Shield+ Puncture Protection
With an exclusive, ultra-lightweight and cut-resistant Kevlar material over the tire casing, Race Shield + provides 34% more puncture protection than our original Race Shield, with little sacrifice in acceleration and road feel.
RR-S AR Compound
Based on the original fast-rolling RR-S compound, the RR-S AR compound keeps the speed but adds more grip and increased durability for maximum confidence on rough and wet roads.
A state of the art silica-based tire compound for elite riders who demand ultimate speed and grip. Compared to a standard road tire compound, RR-S has significantly less rolling resistance and boasts markedly increased grip when cornering, especially in the wet.
CADEX Super Aero Carbon Spokes
Ultra-lightweight high tensile-strength CADEX aero carbon spokes minimize lateral flex for more efficient acceleration and climbing and feature a purpose designed aero shape offering class-leading aerodynamic characteristics as well as superior stability in shifting winds.
Super Aero Rim Shape
Super Aero Rim Shape features wider external dimensionsfor a maximum aerodynamic advantage in the most common wind directions.
Supple Race Casing (SRC)
Single-layer Supple Race Casing (SRC) delivers an incredibly supple and comfortable ride with superior rolling efficiency at a super low weight.
Ultralight Carbon Composite
Exclusive, state-of-the-art carbon composite produces a stiffer wheel structure at an exceptionally light weight for superior acceleration and speed.
Versatile Contact Position (VCP) Drops
8- degree flare with 3-degree outsweep, plus extended 40mm tails for maximum stability and control in all riding conditions.
