All as originally conceptualized by Gerard Vroomen, with the original U.P. only at a comfortable 130 grams lighter.

BMC Impec

Designed, engineered, and manufactured entirely in Switzerland, the BMC Impec justifies the stereotype of obsessive Swiss quality. While prototyping the Impec, the company’s engineers set standards so high for the final product that they had to build a new manufacturing facility from the ground up. The factory, called the Impec Lab, is in Grenchen, a town famous for its world-class watch-making – and this is no coincidence. Granting BMC perfect control of the Impec’s creation, from start to finish, the facility’s result is a world-class race bike with a ride, a look, and a story unlike any other.

SRAM eTap

SRAM has always been an engine of innovation in cycling, and the new eTap wireless drivetrain platform is that engine revving to the redline. eTap for road is truly and entirely wireless - no cables, junction boxes, or external batteries - while eTap for tri/TT only requires a small controller box for the shifters. Everything is self-contained, reliable, and easy to use and understand. It changes the game. Frame engineers, shop mechanics, pro racers, weekend riders - everyone can benefit from SRAM eTap. Will you?

Pioneer Power Meters

You don't need to be a pro to benefit from monitoring your power output. Pioneer Power Meters help you uncover your strengths and weaknesses on the bike - and nearly all riders are surprised by what they learn about themselves when they finally install one. From torque asymmetry, to specific power locations throughout your stroke, to your different endurance thresholds and heart rate, there's more to learn about your riding than you realized. Whether you're a dedicated racer or weekend spinner, now's the time to start riding smarter - and spending less money than before to do so.

Cipollini RB1K

It's not all flash and dash. Yes, the Cipollini RB1000 (or RB1K) looks like a showpiece, but what you see here is the culmination of Mario Cipollini's demand for the fastest bike his engineers could make. Himself a world-class sprinter, the RB1K needed to be stiff, stable, and accurate to meet his expectations for his flagship machine. The geometry is long, low, and aggressive. The ride is relatively comfortable, but you won’t forget you're on a race bike. Cipollini will readily admit that it’s an extreme machine, and not for everyone. It's for those that require maximum forward velocity with minimal sacrifice - or, put another way, those that want an Italian supercar in bicycle form.

Colnago C59

The story of how the Colnago C59 was developed and how it is assembled is just as compelling as the bike's performance. Over 40 prototypes of the C59 were tested before production began. Entirely handmade in Colnago's own factory in Italy, with hand-kept records of every step of the production process for each individual frame, all C59s are then shipped to Tuscany to be hand painted by local artists. The performance of the bike is equally as impressive, too. Stellar handling, a sublime ride, and a stiff chassis make the C59 equally capable on climbs, descents, or in the sprints.

OPEN U.P.

Drawing from previous experience designing world-class road and time trial bikes, as well as their revolutionary mountain hardtail frames, Open introduces the U.P. (Unbeaten Path). A jack of many trades, the UP’s design leaves it ready for virtually anything. Install drop bars, with either slick or knobby tires, and you can race on the road or the cyclocross course. If you want to push even farther off road, the frame can be mounted with 650b/27.5” wheels and tires up to 2.1” in width. Install a flat bar, and suddenly you have a light, agile, and tough XC mountain bike. The variety of build options - and adventure options - is endless.

3T wheels

It's rare that form and function reach equal heights. The thoroughly redesigned 2016 3T wheelset lineup, however, is a notable exception. Rigorously engineered with new technologies like asymmetrical rim drilling and lacing, oversized hub shells, and high-temperature, fade-resistant braking surfaces, both the Discus and Orbis II wheel families will improve any bicycle upon which they're installed - and they’ll look beautiful doing so.
