Road Bikes made for Climbing Mountains

A low weight of your road bike is an essential advantage when it comes to climbing mountain roads. But you also need low air resistance and good breaking power to descend at high speeds.

 

Our latest model El Dorado combines these important characteristics and adds a precise and direct handling for curvy downhills. For El Dorado we have designed an extra lightweight wheelset, using 35mm carbon rims, 18/20 Sapim CX Ray spokes with internal nipples and a lightweight hub with ceramic bearings. This wheelset is not only light and accelerating extremely well in steep climbs, but it also has a very low drag.

 

El Dorado was not only designed for good a low total weight, but also for good aerodynamic performance. Frame, fork, seat post and seat stays have an aero design that lowers drag in downhill or flat sections of the course.

 

Whether you want to climb the Mont Ventoux, the Col du Galibier, Alp d’Huez or any of the other epic mountains of cycling sports, our model El Dorado is the perfect bicycle for it.
