2016 Aquila Equipe-R Shimano 11 Speed Di2 9070 Road Bike
HIGH PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY
IN PERFECT HARMONY
The Aquila Equipe-R has no compromise in stiffness, strength or comfort. Uncontested in the hills, and winning respect when the going gets tough. A balanced ride that amplifies responsiveness, while dissipating rough road feedback. It seems that the ride of the Aquila Equipe-R can do no wrong.
Closely engineered with features such as SLP technology, and the strategic blend of Toray T1000G and T800H modulus carbon, the Equipe-R can hold it’s own in all-out sprints and hardest attacks with minimal flex.
The new Aquila Equipe-R is the lightest bike in the Aquila line-up. The frame weighs a scant 780 grams and makes for an 1145 grams frameset (including fork and headset). This is amongst the lightest frames on the market. What is most astonishing is its strength considering its weight. During the engineering process, extensive testing was conducted to ensure rube shape optimization. Computerized butting of specific tube sets to dictate absorption of high-frequency road vibration, and butting of tube shapes so the bike can resist rider-actuated forces retaining energy to propel the bike in forward motion, while at the same time giving in to road forces.
The Aquila Equipe-R is redefining the meaning of a thoroughbred race machine.
