CYCLING PLUS4.5 OUT OF 5
The lightweight SP-01 looks simple, with its open-design cutaway and short nose, but is bang up to date with tech, much of which has been taken from the automotive world. The fully open carbon base sits neatly above the CarbonKeramic rails and each half moves independently, in a surprisingly subtle and natural way. The resulting ride is solid and efficient without feeling flexy. It’ll be interesting to see if the performance is retained after heavy use. There’s no escaping the high price point.
Highs: Lightweight, independant movement, comfort
Lows: Price is the big one
