Ibis Silk SL Road Bike - Shimano Ultegra
It's been 30 years since the first Ibis was born in Mendocino, California. A lot has changed for Ibis since then, but one constant has been their unwavering desire to build the finest, most innovative bicycles on the planet. Since their rebirth, Ibis Bicycles has really pushed the limits of carbon fiber frame design, and the Ibis Silk SL is the result of those efforts in the road segment.
At its core the Ibis Silk SL Ultegra complete road bike is high modulus carbon fiber, right down to the carbon headcups. This results in a super light frame-only weight of about 2.2 lbs for a 58cm and 16.2 lb for a complete bike (minus pedals)! Stiffness is not sacrificed though - you get the responsiveness of large diameter aluminum, but with the suppleness of a titanium frame. This yields a complete road bike that is ideal for a road race or century bike - yet also at home in a crit.
Hanging on the Ibis Silk SL is the ultra reliable Shimano Ultegra 6700 front and rear derailleur paired with Shimano Ultegra 6700 brake/shift levers. Shimano Ultegra 6700 has established its place just under Shimano Dura-Ace as smooth shifting andl and value packed alternative to the more expensive Dura-Ace.
