All of the GranTurismo experience flows in its soul. Other than for the most extreme racers, this is the single most beloved frameset of all. In its second life, GTR inherits Granturismo’s carbon fiber composite and acquires a renewed tapered head tube. Internal cable routing has been revolutionized making assembling the frame easier.
Thanks to the Smooth Rear Design system, it continues to boast the same comfort where vertical vibrations are dampened without dissipating muscle power. Torsional stiffness and stability continue to be assured by the Razor Edge Design: the profiles that branch out from the seat tube and bottom bracket join near the headset. The edging that runs along the full extent of the fork makes the front end remarkably stable and receptive when pedaling out of the saddle.
With an additional gear and a substantial weight saving over its lower end relations, the Shimano 11 speed groupset offers great performance.
The Ultegra shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 10 speed cassette.
With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 50/34 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
