The SLR 9.6 Disc enhances the already impressive package of the SLR 9.4 Disc 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 Disc cuts through the air even more efficiently along the flats, as well as flying up the hills. 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 hydraulic disc brake groupset taking care of shifting, the SLR 9.6 might well be the perfect all-round road bike. With clearance for 30mm tyres and hidden mudguard mounts on the frame and fork, there’s no reason to put your summer bike away when the weather turns and the roads get rough with the SLR 9.6 Disc.
