Cyclocross season is just around the corner the first international competition have already taken place and the new STEVENS Super Prestige Disc Di2 and Super Prestige Disc are waiting at STEVENS dealerships to be taken for a fast ride through the woods.
This model is also the weapon of choice of teams Beobank-Corendon, ERA Circus, Enertherm Beobank and STEVENS Racing Team for the new season. They will race the fifth World Cup race in Zeven, Norther Germany, which STEVENS will support as the main sponsor.
Even though in the past three years athletes like Mathieu van der Poel (2015), Jens Dekker (2016) and Sanne Cant (2017) have achieved their greatest victories, winning two European Championships as well as more than 20 national titles, we in collaboration with our teams have completely revamped the high-end ’crosser.
Frame 300g Lighter, Yet More Comfortable
The frame became 300 grams (10.1oz) lighter yet also more comfortable. Based on the highly appraised by the pros race geometry it now weighs in at only 990 grams including rear derailleur hanger and front derailleur clamp.
The weight loss resulted from STEVENS engineers using more refined processes in frame manufacturing and highest-quality carbon fiber as well as an optimized frame design with slim top and seat tube and bulky down tube. Despite the lower weight the frame now boasts an increased in steerer tube stiffness of almost 30% (110 Nm/° compared to 85 Nm/°) while the bottom bracket keeps at the same, already high level.
Even better, yet: At the same time the rear triangle’s vertical compliance increased by 12% (255 N/mm > 225 N/mm).
