"I'VE FOUND THE ESPRIT TO BE, IN ALMOST ALL SITUATIONS, A QUIETLY ENCOURAGING BIKE. THERE IS NO DOUBT IT CAN GO FASTER THAN I AM CAPABLE OF, BUT IT DOESN'T BEAT ME ABOUT THE HEAD AND SHOULDERS OVER IT. INSTEAD, THE ESPRIT SEEMS TO VERY CALMLY SAY, "HEY, MAN, IF YOU FEEL LIKE GOING UP A GEAR OR MAYBE SPINNING 5 OR 10 RPM QUICKER, THAT'D BE KINDA FUN. BUT IF YOU'RE NOT FEELING IT, THAT'S COOL, TOO."

"UNTIL YOU POINT IT DOWNHILL. THEN, THEN, THAT CALM, CHILL DEMEANOR GETS REPLACED BY SOMETHING ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT. AT THAT POINT THE ESPRIT TURNS INTO A HARD CHARGING, RAPIDLY ACCELERATING, WIDE EYED AND BUSHY TAILED HOUND THAT'S BEEN LET LOOSE AFTER THAT COCKY NEIGHBORHOOD SQUIRREL. IT'S GONNA GO AS FAST AS IT CAN AND YOUR LAID BACK APPROACH TO THE RIDE HAD BETTER BE ADJUSTED ACCORDINGLY."

—Erik Mathy, Cycling Journalist, California

SUPER LIGHT. FAST AS HELL.

We built the Esprit to be light where it counts - quick on its feet, efficient on climbs. Yet stiff where it matters - sudden sprints, precise and unshakeable handling.

The Esprit frame weighs in under 800g in a size Medium. It’s light, of course - but more importantly it’s confidence inspiring, dependable, and has a smooth ride that’s all too rare in fast road bikes.


  • Optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio
  • Stable and agile geometry
  • Hi-modulus carbon where it counts

    Read more about the Esprit weight and why it matters

    CONFIDENT. COMPOSED. CONSISTENT.

    Every frame size gets its own distinct geometry and construction. With details like variable fork offsets, chainstay lengths, and bottom bracket drop per size. We’ve made sure that regardless of which size fits you best, the Esprit’s confident and composed handling is consistent for you.

     

    • Tom Kellogg designed rider-first geometry
    • No compromises in handling across sizes
    • Variable fork offsets

      COMFORT FROM THE GROUND UP

      The Esprit is efficient, quick, and comfortable. It glides effortlessly in a way that we’ve always been told carbon can’t do. From a long out of the saddle climb, to a sprint, to roughed up corners the Esprit is smooth. It has the speed, the confidence, and the efficiency you expect from a carbon racer but it has the poise and all day comfort we all dreamt of.


      • Blend of high modulus and intermediate modulus carbon from Toray Japan
      • Carbon layup is specific to frame size

        KEEPING IT SIMPLE, FOR REAL

        Standards matter. If a bike isn’t well thought out with regards to standards, it’s not built to last. The Esprit makes life simple - with standards that are designed for longevity.

        • rou
        • T47 threaded bottom bracket
