A T1000 Carbon Mountain Tamer

Our super-light, premium carbon Altus is the road bike of choice for "mountain goats" looking for the ultimate blend of lightweight and stiff.

The Altus

A high-performance, super-light, responsive, race-ready machine, equally at home on a multi-stage tour or alpine sportive.

A Fast and Versatile Road Bike

The Altus is a bike we're supremely proud of. Fantastically lightweight, but with the addition of T1000 carbon no stiffness or power transfer is lost. Whilst this really is a mountain-climbing beauty, those looking for a fast and versatile road bike will be equally happy.

Specifications

Everything you need to know about the Altus. Detailed information about the available sizes and specifications of this frame can be found in the Altus Geometry Factsheet.

Tapered Headtube

The diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The larger diameter is at the bottom where higher stress is applied. Riders will benefit from a noticeably higher steering precision almost without weight penalty. Tapered headsets also deliver a smoother force transfer (e.g. hard braking) to the downtube.

High Modulus T1000 Carbon Fibre

The highest quality materials are used for Aspire carbon frames. Referred to as high modulus carbon fibre, they offer the best combination of strength and elasticity, providing maximum lateral stiffness for best power transfer and a high level of comfort. The result, a light, stiff, comfortable road bike.

Full Carbon Aero Fork

Using a full carbon fork leads to a vastly improved riding experience due to their stiff, lightweight properties, resulting in knife-sharp steering precision, effortless climbing and maximum lateral stiffness.

Internal Cable Routing

Both braking and shifting cables are routed internally for cleaner air flow, resulting in improved aerodynamics.

Di2 Ready

Electronic shifting components provide incredibly fast and reliable gear changes with minimum maintenance – a real asset across all disciplines of riding and racing. The Altus frame can integrate batteries and electric cables as well as conventional wires.

Frame-specific Carbon Seatpost

Specifically designed and manufactured to complement the Altus frame, the Aspire SL super-light seatpost filters out annoying and energy-sapping road buzz without adding weight or losing stability. Being fast doesn’t have to be uncomfortable.
