Built to conquer any road from the hairpins of the Alpe d'Huez to the cobblestones of Paris–Roubaix, the Escapee is the complete package of lightweight, aerodynamics and all-day comfort.
Whether you want to escape your competitors or your daily routine, this is your bike.
To achieve a lightweight with good stiffness while still passing all our rigorous strength testing, we had to find new ways in lay-up. We will not give away the details, but a clever mix of high end fibres and fibre orientations sets our frame apart from what is usually done in the bicycle industry. With our lay-up strategy, we use the full potential of each single fibre. To achieve that, we used the combination of draping simulation and FEA software, something rarely seen in the bicycle industry.
The Escapee is the first product to use our ICH cockpit. The cables disappear at the stem and are routed internally all the way to the rear brake and derailleurs. Aerodynamic, clean and simple.
All tubes that are aerodynamically relevant were remodeled to profiles that minimize drag, but maintain the stiffness properties of the original tubes. The surfaces facing the wind are following Naca profiles, without any edges creating turbulences. A sharp transition into a flat backside cheats the wind into creating a virtual tear drop profile, shielding the components behind the tube from the wind.
It is sad that we need to list this here, but we are very happy to give up a few grams for a silent ride without the noise of a creaking pressfit BB.
The Escapee is compatible with mechanical and electronic drive trains.
Established as the standard for road bikes, there is no need to invent anything new. Light, clean and manufacturing-friendly, we follow the most common specs that leaves you free choice of brakes and 140 or 160 mm rotors.
