The American maker Serotta has brought out its latest offering pitched at high performance racing. It is beautifully made and the full HSG carbon frame give a weight of 7.2Kg for our setup. Overall the frame looks very slender but it has been reinforced in the key areas of the head tube and bottom brackets using titanium.
The frame’s tubes seem solid to the touch and this feeling continues out on the road. It is not the stiffest that we have ever tested, but this is not necessarily a bad thing as it does still feel solid and responsive enough when accelerating hard or on climbs. It absorbed the bumps of the rough road and gave an overall smooth ride.
