Pride II - the fastest road bike in the world

The Pride II breaks all wind tunnel records. The aerodynamic road bike boasts minimal air resistance and makes highly efficient use of the so-called sailing effect. Propulsion in perfection, so to speak. And it’s not only professionals riding at high speeds who can benefit from this – long-distance riders who ride at medium speed will love the bike for its energy-saving properties as well.
The specially developed cockpit is available in different versions and can be individually adapted to the rider.


  • current record for the best aerodynamics
  • frame and all add-on parts optimised according to flow simulation and wind tunnel tests
  • UCI-compliant
  • compatible with turbo trainers and direct drives


  • perfectly integrated handlebar/stem unit, incl. adjustment options
  • large adjustment range of the horizontal saddle position

Pride TRI - Aerodynamics in perfection

Aerodynamics and ergonomics were the central focus in the development of the Pride TRI. Extensive flow simulations and wind tunnel tests helped the designers shape the frame and add-on parts to perfection. The result is a bike with minimal air resistance that optimally supports triathlon riders. In crosswinds, the sailing effect generates additional propulsion.
The cockpit was developed in cooperation with FSA – the world-class bicycle component manufacturer for road bikes. This means that a wide range of customisation and retrofitting options are available. 


  • wind-tunnel-optimised aerodynamics
  • ergonomic cockpit with numerous customisation and retrofitting options (FSA modular system)
  • compatible with turbo trainers and direct drives


  • full internal cable routing
  • disc brakes for optimum braking performance, regardless of weather conditions
