Pride II

Pride II

Energy saving in perfection. The PRIDE II is currently breaking all wind tunnel records, boasts minimal air resistance and makes highly efficient use of the sail effect for maximum propulsion. This benefits not only pros at top speed but also long-distance riders at medium speed. The custom designed cockpit is available in many variants and can be individually adapted in our Individual-System.

    Pride II
    Optimum braking performance

    Disc brakes (160/140 mm) ensure optimum braking performance no matter the weather. 

    Lightweight and comfortable

    The frame and carbon fork can accommodate tyres that are up to 30 mm wide.

    Customized, according to your wishes

    Handlebar width, stem length, stem angle and saddle position can all be configured.

    Pro, marathon or comfort

    The cockpit can be individually adapted thanks to three different stem versions with a length adjustment range of 15 mm each.

    Year-round riding fun

    The Pride II is approved for indoor training and can be used with standard rollers, turbo trainers and direct drives.

    The ultimate racing machine

    Listen up, road cyclists! Do you want to declare war on air resistance and ride faster than ever? The carbon frame and all add-on parts of the Pride II were optimised based on air-flow simulations and extensive wind tunnel tests. The result: an aero racer unlike any other. According to our database, there is currently no faster UCI-compliant road bike on the market. RennRad magazine confirms this statement in its 9/2021 issue: "No road bike we have tested so far has ever achieved better aerodynamics than the new, extensively revised SIMPLON Pride". This makes it the first choice for ambitious riders and professional road cyclists. 

    THE STORY OF THE FASTEST ROAD RACING BIKE IN THE WORLD

    "We want to develop the fastest road racing bike in the world!" That was the clear goal of our road bike developers. And the result is impressive: with the PRIDE II, we have found the optimum compromise between aerodynamics and the weight of the road bike while also fulfilling all the rules of the new UCI guidelines. But how is this possible?

    From the very beginning, the specifications of the UCI played an important role and were taken into account during the design process. With the help of aerodynamics specialists, we first went into the virtual wind tunnel and then into the real one. The special shape of the PRIDE II tube and the effect of the side winds confirmed the so-called sail effect. But what does that actually mean? And how did the reality check turn out?

    Technical Details

    technologies

    SIMPLON's innovative technologies make the PRIDE II a first-class aero racer. The two-arm carbon stem unit was aerodynamically optimised and beautifully integrated into the frame. All lines and cables are routed internally through the frame, which ensures the lowest possible air resistance. Hurray for the Advanced Cockpit!

    The Kamm Tail Design is an unusual tube profile with a shortened flow tail. How does the SIMPLON PRIDE II benefit from this? The construction of the frame and components as well as the streamlined airfoil design provide increased lateral stiffness and a significant reduction in drag.

    Ultimate power transfer and propulsion thanks to Maximum Power Transfer technology: 
    The tube cross-sections of the chainstays as well as the carbon structure in the area of the bottom bracket are designed for maximum stiffness.
