MCipollini is electrifying both the road and gravel scenes with its new electric-assisted Fybra R and GX bikes, with the latter coming equipped with a new, built-in iRide AR 1.5 suspension that’s designed to provide up to 18mm of travel. But, if that doesn’t offer enough cush, the bike is also treated to RockShox’s wireless Reverb AX dropper post that can be operated from the shift levers.
At the center of both models is MCipollini’s monocoque, TCM frame technology, which comprises an intricate layering of continuous strands of long carbon fiber in order to achieve the perfect balance between strength and compliance, while a robust Polini EP3+ EVO motor and 500wh battery provide seamless power assistance and range of travel up to 220 kilometers.
Other features that highlight the bikes include Pollini’s color display and an integrated GPS locator that is hidden in the frame, while stopping power comes courtesy of hydraulic, flat-mounted disc brakes.
In the case of the GX variant, there appear to be plenty of mounting points, which should appeal to gravel grinders and bikepackers alike.
So what differentiates the Fybra R and the GX?
As mentioned, the GX is fitted with the built-in iRide AR 1.5 suspension and RockShox’s wireless dropper seatpost, while clearance has also been increased to accommodate tires up to 50mm. Otherwise, both models feature the same frame construction, geometry, Pollini electric drivetrain and SRAM Rival AXS XPLR groupset.
Available in four sizes, the Fybra R and GX fetch a hefty price of 14,700 €.
