CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (BRAIN) — Quintana Roo is introducing a new top-end triathlon bike, called the PRsix, that emphasizes easy assembly, component flexibility, adjustability and aerodynamics.
The $8,500 bike ($4,500 frame) can be assembled and adjusted with two hex wrench sizes: a boon for traveling racers. It will work with most available brake systems and comes with interchangeable horizontal or vertical dropouts. The frame features QR's previously introduced "Shift" frame design, which is intended to shield the drivetrain from the wind and includes a massive left chainstay said to reduce air drag.
"Until this point triathletes have been presented with a selection of superbikes that are relatively heavy, expensive to maintain, and designed for the wind-tunnel alone rather than the variety of course conditions they are most likely to encounter," said Peter Hurley, CEO of American Bicycle Group, the parent company of Quintana Roo.
The complete bike is spec'd with Shimano Di2 Ultegra, Reynolds Strike wheels, an ISM saddle and the Profile Aeria bar. The frameset comes with headset, seatpost, stem and brakes.
