A DAY AT GIRO D’ITALIA WITH AGX COMPONENTS

The Giro d’Italia returned to the heart of Tuscany for stage 11, and back to the dirt roads that inspired the Eroica rides and the Strade Bianche race, with a spectacular hilly finale on the so-called ‘sterrati’ around Montalcino that could create significant changes in the overall classification. 
The race organisers (RCS Sport) and some fans are anticipated a legendary day in the rain, but ended up being a dry day. The beautiful weather tempted bike enthusiasts to ride through the beautiful colours of Italian countryside along the route, with the wonderful smell of fine Italian cooking tempting cyclists as they passed by. And let us not forget the legendary Italian coffee awaiting you at every turn…

 


FSA’S PROPOSAL FOR A GRAVEL RIDE ON STRADE BIANCHE
On gravel roads you need a wheelset that’s purpose built to face these rough roads. The FSA AGX wheelset is a great choice that perfectly balances inner bead widths, weight and durability. These kinds of wheels are built for the demands of tough and fast off-road riding, but are also a great choice for touring, commuting and rough road club rides.
And what about handlebars? Handlebars are a key factor in the way that your bike handles. Gravel specific bars vary almost as widely as the terrain they are built to navigate, but can offer increased stability and inspire rider confidence. Built using a full carbon UD construction, the FSA K-Wing AGX handlebar balances aesthetics, comfort and responsiveness all in one perfect setup.

 


SL-K RANGE: A GREAT COMBINATION OF LIGHT WEIGHT, STRENGTH AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
SL-K products offer the best combination of light weight, strength and advanced technology for the serious athletes who relies on their bike to perform without compromise. SL-K Light ABS BB386EVO 1X crankset features hollow carbon fibre arms for amazing stiffness and low weight. Choosing from 44t, 42t, 40t, 38t, 36t gearing options, it presents an interesting solution for “gravelers” looking for a single front chainring. 
Riding on dirt roads also requires the need for comfort. For this reason, the new SL-K SBS SB20 seatpost was designed to be lighter and stiffer than ever with its UD carbon shaft and a bonded alloy head.
