BH Unveils Details of New G7 Pro Aero Road Bike

While the G7 is by no means a new model in BH’s range of road bikes, the Spanish brand has unveiled details of a revised version of its flagship aero road bike, which features a lighter and more sophisticated frame and a return to traditional caliper brakes. 

Currently being ridden in the Tour de France under the auspices of Team Direct Energie, the latest G7 ProFeatures a reworked monocoque frame that comprises a mix of high modulus Toray T50 and T80 carbon, along with a revamped lay-up process that’s produced a significantly lighter version over the current model.   

According to BH USA’s brand manager, Matt Sodnicar, the new G7 Pro tips the scales at a feathery 810 grams in a size medium.

However, in addition to putting the G7 Pro on a diet, the impending model features newly configured seat-stays and relocates the rear brake from underneath the bottom bracket to a direct mount set-up atop the seat-stays, as compared to BH’s current set-up on its G6.

This should come as a delight to traditional “roadies”, as the current G7 is presently only available with disc brakes. 

Additional features that punctuate the new G7 Pro, includes a new internal cable routing system that’s aimed at better integration, particularly for electronic groupsets, as well as accommodations for housing Shimano’s Di2 battery inside the semi-integrated seat mast.

According to Sodnicar, the new G7 Pro, which by the way BH is calling its Aero Revolution, will be available in five sizes, along with a range of different “builds” across Shimano’s Dura Ace and Ultegra groupsets.

The G7 Pro is expected to become available sometime in early autumn, with pricing to be announced.
