US brand Quintana Roo have unveiled their latest tri superbike at Ironman 70.3 California, dubbed the PRsix and described as their most useable elite-aero model yet.
“Until this point,” said Peter Hurley, CEO of American Bicycle Group, parent company of Quintana Roo, “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.
“Additionally, the conventional wisdom in this category has been that any advance in stability and weight would come at the expense of aerodynamic efficiency. We’re out to prove that wrong.”
QR says its new superbike can be fully assembled with just two allen keys and offers lots of scope for tweaking the fit and components, including over 600mm of X/Y adjustment at the stem, interchangeable horizontal or vertical drop-outs, and support for “virtually any brake system that the customer would like to use”.
A fully-built PRsix specced with Shimano Di2 Ultegra, Reynolds Strike wheels, an ISM saddle and the Profile Aeria bar will retail at $8,500, while a frameset will also be available for $4,500 including the headset, seatpost, stem and brakes.
There’s no word yet on UK pricing or release date, but lots of wind-tunnel data, weight and geometry charts can be found at QuintanaRooTri.com/PRsix.
