2012 Stevens Stratos Road Bike

2012 stevens stratos road bike   2012 Stevens Stratos Road Bike

Stevens Bikes has introduced its fastest and sportiest machine to date for 2012. The new Stratos is a state-of-the-art road bike that has an extraordinary electronic gearshift but is still amazingly inexpensive even if the surcharge for the exceptionally lightweight THM front fork is included.

Highlights of the technical aspects of the Stratos include the comfortable and stiff tapered steerer fork, innovative high-end frame, carbon cable guides, and carbon dropouts. The ratio of weight to stiffness is optimized by its highly modular carbon fibers.

Excluding the fork, the carbon frame of the 2012 Stevens Stratos Road Bike weighs in at only 830g. Not only is this carbon frame very lightweight. It is also very comfortable and is one of the best carbon racing framesets in the world in terms of quality and performance.
