A fatigue-fighter, the Secteur is on a mission: to inspire you to ride further, and help you reach your goals in maximum comfort. With Zertz and FACT carbon fork to reduce road vibration, the Secteur’s alloy frame delivers a ride that’s fast, smooth, and a great value. A century, that Gran Fondo you read about, exploring where roads lead, or just holding your own on a weekly group ride—these are excellent aboard a Secteur.
WHAT An ultra-efficient approach to aluminum frame design that produces the optimal combination of ride properties for the experience at hand.
WHY Increases strength and improves stiffness for the best all-around performance and handling.
HOW Through methodical tube shaping and enhanced weld techniques, our engineers manipulate every aspect of the frame for experience-specific performance.
FACT CARBON FORK
WHAT FACT carbon fork with Zertz inserts.
WHY Decreases weight and absorbs road vibration, while increasing strength and stiffness of fork to create a quicker-handling bike.
HOW Carbon has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than alloy, so the fork’s carbon blades are stiffer and lighter weight, which creates a more responsive, predictable front end. Zertz inserts are integrated into the mid-section of each leg to dissipate vibrations from the road, helping to reduce rider fatigue.
DISC MODELS W/ 30C TIRES
WHAT Powerful disc brakes with wide 30c tires and fender capability.
WHY To deliver freedom to explore rougher roads or any weather conditions at hand.
HOW Disc brakes provide powerful, consistent braking in all conditions, regardless of the road surface. Wider tires provide a wide contact patch that delivers excellent grip and ultimate comfort. Plug-and-play fenders allow for clean rides and riders.
COMPLIANCE PLUS SEATSTAYS AND ZERTZ INSERTS
WHAT Z-shaped alloy seatstays on A1 aluminum models, and Zertz damping inserts on E5 aluminum models.
WHY To increase comfort and compliance, damp road vibrations, and shave weight, while increasing rear-end torsional stiffness.
HOW Seatstays designed with aggressive Z curve allow more vertical flex without sacrificing lateral stiffness—vital for ride compliance and efficiency. Zertz inserts are attached to the mid-section of each stay to dissipate vibrations from the road, helping to reduce rider fatigue.
