US-based Blue Competition Cycles made its first launch into the UK market at last week’s London Cycle Show, with a range covering road, time trial, cyclo-cross and mountain bikes.
You might not have heard of them, but they have been going for about five years and the Georgia company is offering a free wind tunnel session for everyone that buys one of its top-end Triad time trial bikes. That’s not a bad offer at all.
Highlight was the aero road bike AC1 SL. A T1000/T800 high modulus carbon fibre frame weighs 1.1kg but uses “SFT2 Super Flow Tube Tech” to enhance the frames aerodynamic properties, which you can see in the curved downtube, internal cable routing very neatly fed into the tubeset behind the stem, an aero seatpost and concealed seat clamp, and teardrop shaped tubes.

And to ensure your position can be honed for best aero performance, the company is offering a free one-hour session in a wind tunnel
