A fatigue-fighter like its big brother the Roubaix, 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 Roubaix-inspired alloy frame delivers a ride that’s fast, smooth, and great value. A century, that Gran Fondo you read about, or just holding your own on a weekly group ride—these are no-brainers on 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 Secteur 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.
WHAT Durable, lightweight alloy wheelset with DT Swiss rims.
WHY Maintains high value of the bike while improving rolling efficiency and comfort. Also, easy to maintain and service.
HOW DT Swiss rims are uber-tough and durable, and the J-bend round spokes are strong but simple to change. Forged alloy hubs keep the weight down, with sealed bearings to roll smooth and fast, while requiring minimal maintenance.
S-SHAPED SEATSTAYS W/ ZERTZ
WHAT S-shaped alloy seatstays with IZertz damping inserts.
WHY To increase comfort and compliance, damp road vibrations, and shave weight, while increasing rear-end torsional stiffness.
HOW Seatstays designed with aggressive “S” 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.
