For 2018 the Access SL frame has had a complete makeover. Don't worry though - we kept all the good stuff. It's still built from the same light, stiff and efficient double butter aluminium tubes, crafted into the ideal shape using our complex mechanical forming process so that it looks great and rides even better. All the features you'd expect are present and correct, from the tapered head tube - for better steering precision - to internally routed cables, for cleaner looks and longer lasting precise gear shifting. New for 2018, our Agile Ride Geometry is tailored for enthusiastic riders. You can expect lively, agile handling and an even more responsive feel, thanks to the 12mm through axle at the rear. We've even adapted the frame so that it's ready for a dropper seatpost, which will open up more adventurous line choices and make tough technical descents easier than before. We like to think we've taken care of all the details, so that you can concentrate on the ride.
