The SLR 9.6 builds on the impressive formula of the SLR 9.4 with the addition of a Knight Composites 35mm TLA wheelset. These 35mm deep tubeless ready carbon wheels are lighter and more aerodynamically efficient, meaning the SLR 9.6 is a bike which really flies both uphill and along the flats. Knight have designed their wheels to reduce turbulence at the trailing edge, meaning cleaner air is flowing onto the frame, letting the SLR frameset’s advanced aerodynamic profiles work at their best.
With the same light, stiff and comfortable frame and fork as the flagship SLR 9.8 and Shimano’s fantastic Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset taking care of shifting, the SLR 9.6 might well be the perfect all round road bike. Whether it’s a long distance sportive, a rolling road race or a ride to a well-earned cake stop, you’ll be going faster and enjoying the ride with the SLR 9.6’s blend of power transfer, comfort, light weight and aerodynamics.
