Engineered from the ground up to be incredibly stiff while remaining light, the Photon R is the epitome of ultimate stiffness to weight.
The Photon R delivers an aggressive feel without sacrificing the original Photon’s legendary ride quality. This frame was developed to surpass the stiffness numbers of industry leading frames while reducing weight. We achieved this ambitious objective and exceeded it by creating an unparalleled race frame that weighs under 800 grams for a 54cm size frame.
Racers dream of a stiff frame that performs. The Photon R more than delivers, with 30% increased stiffness in the bottom bracket region over the Photon SL. Torsional stiffness is also 10% higher than the Photon SL, for increased handling and precise cornering. The Photon R converts spin into speed unequivocally.
