Code: MERLIN-MALT-CR-SL-RB
Stunning T700 Toray carbon frame. Full carbon fork with tapered steerer. Flawless Shimano 105 5800 11 speed groupset. Light, responsive and fast but without undue harshness.

We took inspiration from our much-loved Malt-CR for this SL version. We opted for an even higher grade of carbon - T700 Toray carbon - which not only saves a whole bunch of weight, it also enabled us to do a bit more with how the frame rides.

Lighter, more responsive, just plain faster. But without any of the teeth-chatering harshenss of some carbon bikes.

Don't get us wrong, the SL is designed for performance. It's a race bike after all. We've tuned the carbon layup for 'real world' riding too though. We think riders still want to spend a long time in the saddle no matter what bike they're on.

With the SL you'll not be wishing for the race to end, eager to get off the bike. You'll be fine to ride on. Your body will be able to ride the day after. Which is just what you'll want to do.

The Malt-CR SL is a fabulous all-round everyday road bike for the performance orientated rider.

The finsihing kit speaks for itself. Just have a look at it. Amazing value.

General information about our shipping
Online, this looked like an incredible deal - full carbon with full Ultegra 6800 for under 1500 quid. It does not disappoint in looks and performance either. The frame itself has a matte clear finish with natural carbon form underneath, and the decals set it apart. The Ultegra is an absolute dream to ride, fast on the flat, solid and responsive on the downhills and it it drives you up those hills with ease - I know it's about the engine that's powers it, but nonetheless it really does make light work of hills that I used to struggle up. 5 stars from me
