Japanese top triathlon bike brand Ceepo will be launching a range of triathlon specific bikes at TCR next February on the Sigma /2XU stand. All the Ceepo bikes are designed and manufactured by triathletes for triathletes. The ethos of the company is to design superior frames that are both aerodynamic and yet comfortable to ride. As to be expected the seat angle is an aggressive 77 degrees, which keeps the hip angle open to allow more powerful pedalling while in an aero race position. The extremely narrow tear drop tubing and seat pillar combine with the closed rear wheel arch to reduce drag to a minimum and maximize aerodynamics for both long and short course triathletes alike. The down tube is only 26mm in width while the seat and chain stay measures just 12mm !!
As you would expect from Japanese engineering, the aerodynamics do not compromise safety. In fact, they are complemented by the extremely rigid monocoque frame, constructed from the highest quality 40ton 3K modular carbon fibre. Internal cable routing add the finishing touches to this high quality frame, which weighs in at only 1,350gm.
The British bike industry seem to approve of Ceepo, as top cycle retailers such as Royals, Sigma, Bridgtown cycles and Scotland’s Bicycleworks or all rumoured to be selling the bikes.
Ceepo UK will be launching the Venom and Stinger at TCR and later this year adding the Standard to their line up. It will have Shimano Dura ace group set……what else would you expect from a Japanese company? The Standard will be aimed at those triathletes in draft legal races and will weigh in at only 6.8kg !!
