Disc brakes have been the norm in the mountain bike world for years because they deliver uncompromising braking power and control. The century sport disc introduces the performance of disc braking on an endurance road bike that is also designed to offer all day comfort. Designed with enhanced performance geometry, it has a taller head tube so you can sit up and take the strain off your neck and low back when you're out for a long pedal. The 6061-t6 aluminum alloy is a hallmark of durability and by incorporating custom butted and formed tubing, it strikes the perfect balance of strength and light weight. The tapered head tube works in tandem with the continuous fiber technology carbon fork to deliver the utmost in steering precision, and the fork further enhances the frame's comfortable ride by reducing the vibration and chatter of rough road surfaces. With a HED wheel set and a Shimano 105/ultra drivetrain and brakes.. Road bikes will never be the same.
