BH releases midyear Ultralight road models

The 2015.5 Ultralight with Dura-Ace build retails for $4,799.

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. (BRAIN) — Building on its 695-gram Ultralight EVO high-end road frameset (MSRP: $3,999), Spain's BH Bikes has added two midseason complete bikes to the Ultralight line.

The 2015.5 Ultralight climbing frame drops the EVO name, weighs 840 grams, and is available in Shimano Ultegra and Dura-Ace builds.

"Our new (non-EVO) Ultralight offers similar category-topping performance and weight, but at a more modest price," said Gene DiMenna, BH's national sales and brand manager in the U.S. "We borrowed liberally from design, engineering and manufacturing advancements gained during the EVO project, but back in Vitoria (BH's headquarters in Spain's Basque region) and here in the U.S., there's an immense amount of pride in delivering near-EVO level performance in a more affordable package."

The new Ultralight uses a different carbon layup schedule than the EVO but shares the same molds and geometry as its lighter-weight sibling. It also shares such EVO features as patented Hollow Core Injection Molded (HCIM) construction, internal cable routing, BB 386 and a tapered headtube.

MSRP: $3,499 (Ultegra), $4,799 (Dura-Ace).
