The Weekly Smack Down

Thinning tree cover.
Blinding sun.
Approaching bridge.
Shoulder to shoulder.
Awaiting disturbance.
Anxiety simmers.
Shift.
Bodies rise.
Gears fall.
Bedlam.
The group ride never sets out to be a race, but that never stops it from getting competitive. So in the spirit of the of the town line sprint, we recommend our friendly Smack Down favorites.

Fast Group Ride Models


622 SLX

The 622 SLX features carbon tubes joined with titanium lugs to provide plenty of stiffness for standing sprints, and a smoothness that welcomes you back on the saddle. Our lightest frame, the 622 will earn you bragging rights at the post-ride coffee stop.


Elium SLX

The Elium SLX is a tale of two halves. The upper consists of carbon seat tube, top tube, and seat stays to prevent unwanted vibrations while shaving weight. The titanium lower provides a taste of road feedback, ample power transfer, and durability where it’s needed most. Pair the two and experience perfect harmony.


“When I looked down at one point the odometer read 47 mph. Regardless, the bike was reassuringly steady. But the speed doesn’t reflect one all-encompassing issue: comfort. The bike is perfect.” —Bret T. Vienna, VA
