50 mph. You enter the softer corners on the descent. The bike is glued to the road. It follows your every command without hesitation. In a brief moment you find the opportunity to let go of the handlebar to zip up your windbreaker.
Stiff and stable frames have always been a Principia trademark. The Principia wants to manufacture frames that give you maximum power transfer and perfect control during critical manoeuvres. Their latest generation of road frames in the Principia ELLIPSE PROJECT create a new standard for stiffness to weight ratio. In addition, The DESIGN 2 SIZE (D2S) technology optimises comfort by adapting the tube dimensions to the frame size. Principia frames are tested rigorously every day by the riders of the professional cycling teams Team Capinordic and Team An Post Sean Kelly.
“In the rain, on the descents, on the cobblestones, and in the sprints: whenever I need that competitive edge, I have to be in complete control and able to trust my equipment 100%. My Principia never lets me down.” Rasmus Guldhammer, winner of the U23 edition of Ličge- Bastogne-Ličge 2009.
” It’s the best bike I have ever used. It is very rigid but still handles very well. I would recommend it to anybody from the casual tourer to the extreme enthusiast” Sean Kelly, Second only to Eddy Merckx when it comes to the number of professional victories. Today, Kelly is sports director at the Anglo-Belgian pro-team An Post Sean Kelly.
"REVOLUTION INTEGRAL C40T"
The integrated seat post saves weight and improves the stiffness to weight ratio (STW).
Aluminium brackets forged into the carbon frame dropouts ensure that the frame is not harmed when the wheels are fastened.
Principia was the first manufacturer to guide the cables directly through the head tube giving the frame an elegant and aerodynamic appearance.
BOTTOM BRACKET: Revolution C40T & Ellipse C24T use the BB86 press fit system. (FSA, Shimano, SRAM, Campagnolo) MSLe Pro C40T, MSL C24T & MSL C16T use the BB30 system. All other models use a 68 mm bottom bracket with BSA-threading (1.37” x 24 TPI)
SEAT POSTS: The D2S models use 27,2 mm seat posts up to size 55. Sizes 57 and larger use 31,6 mm seat posts. All other models use 31,6 mm seat posts.
SUSPENSION FORKS: All 2010 Mountain Bike frames are built for 80 or 100mm travel forks. Shorter, or longer, travel forks will compromise the overall handling.
