Speed metal ultra: Our light-weight aluminum construction creates a nimble and lightweight machine to get you to the top of the podium, but also a durable, reliable one that can do it over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 Quick Bike
always a bit anxious about buying products like this online as you cannot try before you buy.
This bike looks far more expensive than it actually costs and components seem to be of a descent spec.
The gear changers are instant and very smooth, this is my third road bike and by far feels the most positive on the road.
Colour scheme looks great, just changed the pedals to clipless and ready to race.
Only comment I have is that the sizing is not that easy as an American bike. I am 6 2 and ordered the XL size bike this is plenty big enough for me due to the geometry of the frame
