The Attain Race brings a little of the racing spirit to longer rides, after-work blasts with your training buddies or regular training sessions. And even if you sometimes find yourselves inspired to hunker down deep in the drops, you still won't find it short on comfort or balanced, easy handling.
The Attain Race's frame features Superlite aluminium tubing using their Smooth Welding manufacturing process. To make it more comfortable on longer rides, their engineers build the rear end with extra vertical compliance without sacrificing torsional rigidity - so the frame can simultaneously absorb vibration and remain efficient. There's also enough clearance at the rear and under the carbon fork to fit tyres up to 28mm - an option that could significantly incease comfort and safety on any ride that ventures away from smooth Tarmac. It's not all about comfort, though - they're also obsessed with not wasting a single watt of pedal power. So they've added a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket and a complex profile down tube, all to improve transmission efficiency. They've also routed all the cables internally while maintaining easy access for servicing, tidying up the frame's looks and increasing cable service life.
Shimano's versatile all-round 2x10 Tiagra group takes care of shifting and braking on the Attain Race. They chose a cassette with an 11-34 tooth range, while the compact crank features 50 and 34 tooth chainrings. It's a gear range that'll easily tackle both the steepest climbs and the fastest descents.
Out of the box, the Attain Race rolls with fast Fulcrum Racing 77 wheels - an ideal complement to its long-distance-at-speed character, particularly when shod with Continental's grippy Ultra Sport 2 tyres for perfect steering and braking.
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.
