Roval Rapide Carbon Cockpit 2023 90mm x 420mm – Matte Carbon/Gloss Black


SKU: SK-36684266307 Categories: , , ,

The all-new Rapide Cockpit is a lot more than just the fastest way to the finish line. It’s the fastest leading edge we’ve ever made putting aero gains in the clean air where they matter most and shaving four watts off the already ultra-quick two-piece Rapide Bar and Tarmac SL7 Stem. But to deliver a leading edge that provides a winning edge takes more than pure aero. The goal for the Roval engineering team was simple—the Rapide Cockpit had to be the fastest bar we’ve ever made with no compromises. It’s aero light stiff and designed hand-in-hand with the best riders in the world and our Retül fit experts so you can get a grip on victory.  AERODYNAMIC  Removing the cluster of hardware where stem and handlebar connect created one of the most important leading edges of the bicycle and can be designed as a single airfoil. We optimized this airfoil to provide a maximum advantage in clean air at speeds seen from long solo breakaways to full gas World Tour sprints. While a four-watt improvement may seem small it adds up to 32cm* advantage over a 250m final sprint. When races are won by bike throws this is a winning difference.  LIGHT AND STIFF  By removing the stem’s hardware cluster the Rapide Cockpit is 50 grams lighter 100mm x 420mm than a two-piece Rapide bar and Tarmac SL7 combo. Made from premium high-modulus carbon fiber that delivers ideal stiffness for the biggest fastest sprinters on the World Tour. The Rapide Cockpit has a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio than any two-piece system we’ve ever made.  FIT The downside of one-piece cockpits has long been fit but we partnered with our Retül fit professionals and the best riders in the world to ensure almost every rider can find their fit. We offer 15 different stem and bar combos all at -6 degree so we’ve got your race day position covered. The radius from tops to drops has been sculpted for wrist clearance whether out of the saddle in a final sprint or tucked in an aero position while bend and flare reflect our favorite Rapide bar.  Our World Tour Athletes are already falling in love with the Rapide Cockpit. Demi Vollering and Lotte Kopecky have delivered unprecedented domination this spring on the bars while Fabio Jacobsen piloted the cockpit to first on Stage 2 of Tirreno Adriatico with a bike throw. Winning by just centimeters Fabio’s Rapide Cockpit ensured his huge sprint maxing out at over 71kph! delivered an extra 32cm* gap over the 250m sprint compared to a two piece aero bar and stem—the winning edge.  *As calculated by our Ride Science team in simulation using real world power data course data and CdA numbers from WinTunnel testing.  Aerodynamically engineered to save 4 watts vs a traditional aero road bar Material: Premium High Modulus Carbon Fiber Titanium Stem Bolts Sizes: 15 combos from 75mm x 380mm to 125mm x 440cm Bend: 125mm drop x 75mm reach 4 degrees of flare at the drops Stem Angle: 6-Degrees Steer Clamp Diameter: 31.8 Weight: 310 grams 100mm x 420mm Cable Routing: Shimano SRAM Campagnolo Internal / Electronic Compatible Compatible with Roval bolt on computer mount S219900058.
