Ceepo Shadow R

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - WARM-UP WHAT’S NEW -

US$6,500 The hit of the Euro­bike show this year, Ceepo’s new Shadow R takes aero tri bikes to the next level. Ceepo is happy with the ag­gres­sive de­sign that leaves lit­tle mid­dle ground – peo­ple ei­ther love it or hate it. No fork means con­sid­er­ably less aero drag, ac­cord­ing to Ceepo’s test­ing, which means you’ll be all set to go much faster on this su­per-bike from the Ja­panese com­pany. As rev­o­lu­tion­ary as the bike looks, it’s built up with many stan­dard com­po­nents, which means you can use pretty much any aero bar and stem com­bi­na­tion you’d like. Like the P5X be­fore it, the Shadow R uses disc brakes, which are be­com­ing more and more pop­u­lar in the tri-bike world these days. There’s lots of aero stor­age avail­able – a small hid­den box sits at the bot­tom of the frame for your spare tube and CO2 car­tridge or pump, and there’s an­other com­part­ment on the top tube for gels and the like. The reg­u­lar Shadow fea­tures a stan­dard fork de­sign for those who can’t get their head around the rad­i­cal Shadow R.
