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.

General information about our shipping
This purchase was an upgrade from an alloy frame, carbon forked, Shimano Tiagra group set road bike that I used for recreational fitness training. Although it's only just arrived I pretty confident the Malt won't disappoint. The bike arrived when promised. Fit and finish are first class, the frame appears well constructed, light and with a comfortable riding position. The graphics are well executed. All the Shimano group set is functioning correctly, the tyres and bars were not as listed but pleasingly are upgraded components. Having just ridden my usual training route I've achieved my best average speed and highest speed to date. To date I'm really pleased with the Malt, good bike, good specifications and a good price
Really well built bike and very nice indeed. The DI2 is not part of the bike, even though every picture shows the bike with DI2, so don't get confused, I did check before I purchased. Delivery was very quick and the bike just required the handlebar fitting and the seat post adjusting and I was ready to ride, just need the weather now
