REDCHILLI FR1

The Ultimate

Race Machine

Our Redchilli FR1 race bike looks fast even when it’s stationary. Climb aboard, turn the pedals and you will soon realise just how fast and responsive this bike is. If you are after an aero race bike for flat and rolling roads, then we are pretty sure you will not find a better bike for the price. And remember, every Chilli is custom built for you – because it’s all about you.

DESCRIPTION

Super fast, super stable, super strong.

That just about sums up our stunning Redchilli FR1 – though there is a lot more to it than that. Full Carbon Technology, AirFlow Front Fork, I-Head Tube, T-Tube Aero Fin, Half-Water-Drop Seat Tube…. It’s all very impressive, and all designed to give you those precious marginal gains of which can mean the difference between winning and losing. A feature is one thing, the benefit is another.

What truly makes our Redchilli FR1 so special? The fabulous price point. The frameset starts at just £995.00 while a complete bike can be built for as little as £1395.00. Now that is special.

FR1 Frameset Details

Full Carbon Technology. Ultra Aero Design. Supreme power transfer.

REDCHILLI FR1 Red Hot LG a
AirFlow Front Fork

The wider fork opening reduces airflow drag between the fork and the wheel, thus improving speed.

Direct Mount Brakes

Braking performance is improved by way of direct mount brakes.

I-Shaped Tapered Head Tube

The “I” is just the start of the aerodynamics behind FR1. With 1-1/8″ upper and 1-1/2″ lower bearings, tapered head tube designs are stiffer and stronger than conventional inline head tubes. Minimal flex at the front of the frame provides increased steering precision and accuracy.

Internal Cable Routing

Internally routed cables provide a clean, aerodynamic and sleek appearance while tucking cables away from external weather elements and so providing longer cable life expectancy. Added to this, FR1 actually has internal piping thus making inner cable changes fast and easy; so no more hunting around for cable holes.

Torayca T700/T800 High Modulus Uni-Directional Carbon

High modulus carbon is the basis for ultra-lightweight carbon frames and is the ultimate in terms of strength and lightness. Add to this, our Full Carbon Technology of which is a proprietary blend of Torayca T700 and T800 High Modulus Uni-Directional Carbon. This ensures the frameset is both light yet stiff, with precision handling and supreme levels of comfort.

Ultra Aero Design

A frameset of varying aerodynamic profiles, each designed and optimised to reduce wind resistance and therefore improve speed.

BB86 Bottom Bracket

BB86 is one of the very latest bottom bracket standards and provides increased stiffness and therefore better power transfer. BB86 frames have a bottom bracket shell width of 86.5mm with an internal diameter of 41mm. All chainsets from Shimano, Campagnolo, SRAM, ROTOR and FSA will fit BB86 with an appropriate bottom bracket.

Half Water-Drop Seat Tube

A key element of FR1’s aero credentials, is the half water-drop seat tube of which helps compress air flow, pushing the air downwards and outwards.

T-Tube Aero Fin

In combination with the Half Water-Drop Seat Tube, the T-Tube Aero-Fin provides supreme air flow across the top section of the bike and the fin compresses air flow downwards, greatly reducing turbulence.

Di2 / EPS Compatible

Use mechanical or electronic gear system. The frame is also supplied with a full “closed” Di2 kit to ensure a smooth appearance.
