The Ibis Silk SL uses a further refined layup of ultra high modulus carbon fiber, fine tuning last year's weight savings and gain in strength. The carbon fiber headcups keep the weight down, resulting in a 58cm frame weight of about 1000g. We think you'll find the understated graphics package refreshing, complementing the colors. In addition to the standard gloss clear (which shows the beautiful carbon weave), Ibis is also are offering British Racing Green and a rich Red. It’s stiff but remarkably smooth riding. What you get is the responsiveness of a large tube aluminum bike combined with the suppleness of a Ti frame. Lightweight but very strong. Can survive a 900 pound frontal impact (at the front axle) before a failure of the down tube, which is greater than many full suspension mountain bikes. Integrated headset saves the weight of headset cups, looks great (and we have had not a single issue for you naysayers) Compression molded carbon fiber dropouts are stiff, strong and nearly weightless. They also feature a replaceable derailleur hanger. The large diameter top tube and down tube provides some of the best cornering confidence you will ever experience. Ibis bird logo featured in an investment cast bronze head badge. Custom forged and CNC’d then nickel plated seat binder (weighs only 14g!). Low weight and high performance for moderate cost. An amazing combination of good climbing, descending and all around comfort. A great road race or century bike that is also at home in a criterium. Matched Easton fork with carbon fiber dropouts and special "understated graphics package" with gloss clear coat finish.
