The SLA is the aluminum version of our flagship Helium bike. Its geometry is exactly the same as the carbon model. We use triple-butted 6061 aluminum tubing to create the lightest, high-performing bike that rides like a dream. It cannot be beaten in terms of stiffness-to-weight ratio.
Modern alloy frames can compete with carbon frames in the same price range and present a valid alternative for a price-conscious consumer
Tube shapes like the ultra-thin rear stays are inspired by the top-level carbon Helium SLX with only one goal: to offer the best compromise between stiffness and weight, also on an alloy frame
Special selection of 6061-6066 triple butted alloy tubes result in a competitive weight of 1200 grams for this frame
Internal cable routing for both shift and brake cables
Features a straight blade fork for improved handling and better aero performance compared to previous models, blades optimized to funnel air through the fork and decrease aerodynamic drag
