Redchilli FR2 never disappoints. You ask, it delivers. Whatever terrain you cover, FR2 will just keep going, whether this be flat or rolling roads, tight twisting corners, steep climbs and fast descents, FR2 always feels assured and confident. It never complains. It just delivers performance in every aspect. And remember, every Chilli is custom built for you – because it’s all about you.
FR2 has supreme levels of balanced stiffness and yet remains comfortable
Like its sibling FR1, our Redchilli FR2 frame has a blend of Torayca T700 and T800 High Modulus Carbon. T700 is used for the main tube sections while T800 is used for the main stress areas being the Head Tube, Bottom Bracket and Seat Tube/Top Tube cluster. This ensures additional strength and reduced flex, so power transfer and comfort is improved.
The Semi-Aero profile has been carefully designed to provide maximum speed. The front forks for example have a wider profile to improve airflow around the wheel as it passes inbetween the forks. The air is then pushed either side of the Down Tube providing increased levels of air passage. The centre section of the Head Tube is also streamlined, and yet the lower section accomodate 1-1/2" headset bearings for improved flex reduction. The Chain Stays are asymmetric to aid power transfer and these evolve from a BB86 bottom bracket.
FR2 Frameset Details
Full Carbon Technology. Semi Aero Design. Balanced Stiffness.
AirFlow Front Fork
The wider fork opening reduces airflow drag between the fork and the wheel, thus improving speed.
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.
FR2 gives you the option of either an 8mm or 15mm carbon specific headset top cap giving you a choice of riding position.
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.
Toray 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.
Marble Effect Carbon
The rather lush marble effect carbon is just another little quality touch that makes FR2 really quite special.
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.
Aero to the front, box section to the rear. The perfect combination for speed, acceleration and pure climbing ability.
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.
