Click to read moreWe’ve grown up riding and racing the tough roads and tougher weather of Britain, but only now have we been able to make the perfect bike for not just surviving but thriving in these conditions. The latest research proves that tubeless 30mm tyres are as fast as skinnier tyres on typically rough road surfaces but far more surefooted and comfortable. The precise fingertip feedback of hydraulic disc brakes means assured descending confidence whatever the last cloud or tractor dumped on the next corner. Wide range gearing lets you spin efficiently where you used to struggle, so you hit hill after hill fresh not broken. A collection of components is useless without the frame to match though, so in the words of our former Elite, UCI ranked road racing designer Ian, we’ve created the ultimate “21st century British road bike.” Light, aerodynamic and precise steering for searing speed, but with the rear stay and 27.2mm seat post compliance to fight fatigue all day. Naturally it’s got ample clearances for large volume tyres and all the weather sealed, non frame-rubbing DOX internal cable routing wisdom of our MTBs. We’ve even designed our own flush-fit mudguards because you’re never far from rain even in July and we know this is a bike you’ll want to ride every day for sportives, Strava, fitness or just because serious performance is seriously fun.
The Ultimate British Road Bike
The Wessex SE is designed to be The Ultimate British Road Bike, designed to take you further, faster and in more comfort than any road bike we have ever designed. The Wessex SE is, without doubt, the fastest bike that can take full length mudguards.
UD Carbon Finish
A stripped back finish means we have only lacquered the UD carbon finish to save weight. The lay-up utilises Core Shell Rubber - this nano-technology brings more comfort to both the fork and rear stays, resulting in less rider fatigue.
SRAM Red eTap
SRAM Red eTap wireless shifting gives the ultimate in weather proofing with no cables to seal from the environment. Full hydraulic brakes give one finger control and a FSA Metron aero finishing kit completes our best of breed package.
