Taking only a few design cues from their current GC Aero (scooped downtube and seat tube), this new model brings a whole lot more to the table. This is clearly a prototype plastic frame, but if it holds its shape through to production, here’s what we’re seeing…
Wide set seat stays hide linear pull “V-brake” style cantilevers on the rear, but note the little holes on the stays near the top of the brakes. Either they’re testing something like Shimano’s new Dura-Ace TT brakes also, or they’ll offer up the frame with options to run either style brake.
Gone is the seatmast in favor of a flat surface on the top tube with an aero shaped seat post. The top tube and head tube mold around the rear of the stem for a much tighter looking (and smoother, faster) package. Much better looking than the standard stem stuck on the GC Aero.
Front brakes are hidden behind the fork legs and are also mini-V brakes. More as we get it.
Thanks to Moe for the tip!
