CEEPO debuted its radical new triathlon bike during this week’s Eurobike show called the Shadow-R, which features a far-out beam design and a wild looking fork befitting of a Marvel Action Hero.
Indeed, the Shadow-R features a futuristic front fairing that borders on outer space, which CEEPO says does as much to reduce road vibration as it does to cheat the wind. There’s also a fairing over the front wheel which extends into a headtube, leaving an exposed area that the Japanese company says also results in a significant reduction in wind drag
“The revolutionary CEEPO Shadow-R “SideFork”provides an obvious aerodynamic advantage. But what you cannot see is that helps dampen road vibration. Assembled with regular parts; our new super frame remains easy to travel and service”, says CEEPO.
The overall lay-out of the frame features truncated tube profiles, along with a large section of carbon fiber in front of the bottom bracket that serves as a storage compartment, as well as an integrated bento box along the top tube.
The geometry of the frame involves a lowered, oversize EVO386 bottom bracket, which CEEPO claims improves high-speed stability and better overall aerodynamics.
The Shadow-R is compatible with all electronic groupsets from Shimano, Sram and FSA, and can also comply with Sram’s 1X drivetrain system also. Moreover, a twin position front derailleur means the bike can accommodate virtually any size chainring from 56T right down to a 50T compact.
Braking on the Shadow-R comes courtesy of disc brakes, which can be either hydraulic or mechanical, along with clearance up to 28mm tires.
As far as pricing and availability for the Shadow-R are concerned, like the saying goes, if you have to ask, chance are you can’t afford it.
