The GTC SL Disc - a suprisingly comfortable, high performance long-distance race bike - is the highlight of the Attain model series. It's so efficient it feels right at home leading out the peloton, whether that's on a long climb or a high speed, twisting descent. Cutting edge disc brake technology means the best possible braking performance with big safety reserves, even at high speed and in poor weather conditions.
Disc brake forces need a different approach to frame design and construction. That's why their Comfort Flex carbon frame is equipped with X12 axles at front and rear - they massively increase the frame's stiffness. It's also the reason they opted for a tapered head tube with integrated headset to plug the CSL Race carbon fork into. In complete contrast, they incorporated their Flex Stays into the rear end, in order to make this uncompromising race machine comfortable as well as efficient. To maximise service life and clean up the bike's appearance, they routed all the cables internally. A PressFit bottom bracket ensures long-term smooth running and efficient power transfer, and they've even allowed for winter training rides by including room for mudguards.
It would have been a crime not to select Shimano's Ultegra groupset for the Attain GTC SL Disc - and the same goes for the Shimano BR-RS505 hydraulic disc brakes. Power is transferred via a compact chainset with 50 and 34 tooth chainrings, while at the rear an 11 speed cassette runs from 11 to 32 teeth.
Plugged into the dropouts at each end are the amazingly fast DT-Swiss Spline R24 wheels, anchored to the road via grippy and fast-rolling Schwalbe One Kevlar tyres.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
