You're ready to get serious about road biking. You don't want a gravel/adventure/touring/grocery-getter bike. You're looking for bike built for speed and performance.

Race winning handling is in your hands. Shimano's 9-speed Sora shifters and derailleurs bring ultra-quick gear changes to every ride. An alloy FSA Vero 50/34T compact crankset and 11-30T Shimano cassette offer a wide gearing range to help tackle challenging training rides as well as races. Alloy wheels and 700x25c Vittoria Zaffiro tires add an extra dash of speed, while ProMax dual-pivot brake calipers help to reign in speed.
