The EC-130E has just smashed a 2500 aero road bike test in the summer edition of Cycling Active. With a full Ultegra groupset, fast aero frame and Vision Metron 81 full-carbon wheels it simply left the rest of the bikes from Specialized, BMC and Scott in its wake. Grabbing 10/10 for value and specification and stealing the Best On Test award, what more could you possibly want?
The EC-130-E is built to perform. With class leading aerodynamics, an incredibly stiff pedalling platform and efficient power transfer it has been designed from the ground up to help dramatically improve your cycling performance and carry you over the line first. We've paired this astonishing frameset up with Selcof's new Carbon Ultra Aero Bars, with a carbon aero stem, aero bars and the ability to mount a set of Selcof's carbon tribars this is the perfect bike for anyone looking to go fast.
Frame: The EC-130-E frameset was created to help you slice through the air and extract every last watt of leg power. Advanced computer modelling of frame tube profiles and fluid dynamics has delivered a frameset that not only has a remarkable low drag profile but is also surprisingly light for an aero road bike.
Each EC-130E is created with our 'EPS Inside' moulding technology. Main tube frame junctions are laid up over pre-shaped EPS formers. This allows for a more accurate placement of carbon in the mould and helps to eliminate wrinkles inside of the frame to deliver stronger, lighter frames with absolute consistency from frame to frame.
Meticulously crafted from Toray's finest T800 IM and painted by hand in Italy the EC-130-E is the product of rigorous design and inspirational thinking. After one short ride you'll know the EC-130-E has to be your next Fast Aero Road bike.
Groupset: Shimano's 6800 Ultegra (22-speed) groupset hits a real sweetspot in the price Vs performance stakes. It offers 95% of the performance of Dura-Ace, but at a lower price that makes it obtainable for more competitive riders. Ergonomics, drivetrain durability and gear shift fluidity are first class with Ultegra 6800. Faultless gear shifts across the 11-28 cassette, even under the heavy load, comes with the lightest touch of the controls. Shimano are masters of precision gear shifting, taken to a whole new level with Ultegra 6800.
Wheelset: Planet X 60mm Carbon Clinchers Carbon-alloy hybrid, 60mm deep, 700c clincher wheelset. All the aero performance of a carbon wheel with the added security and wet weather performance of an alloy braking surface. The PX 60mm carbon clinchers and slippery quick and will help you cut through the air to post new PBs.
Finishing kit: We've revisited our tried and tested Italian theme for the finishing kit Pro Logo providing the racing perch and Italian accessory masters Selcof providing thef ull-carbon, aero bar and stem combo. We've kitted the wheels out with a top notch set of race tyres, lightweight slicks, with bags of grip that'll give you the extra confidence you'll need to push harder and brake later into every corner.
The EC-130-E is for the serious competitor in all of us. It skilfully blends the performance advantage of an elegantly designed aero frameset with the lightweight advantage that only hand finished carbon construction can deliver. It's our ultimate fast Aero Road bike and it's ready for you to ride away today.
