When TOUR opened its wind tunnel and tested numerous aero models for the aero test in issue no. 5, our new racer was not yet on the market, but nevertheless already part of the test. With success! "STEVENS waited a long time to develop a new competition bike. Instead, the Arcalis now comes out of nowhere with a bang: a competition bike that has (almost) everything fast racers need," write the testers.
The reason for this outstanding verdict, which gave the Arcalis an overall grade of 1.7: top performance in the wind tunnel. "With only 207 watts of power at 45 km/h racing speed, the STEVENS earns itself a 'very good' in this discipline," the test report says. This is primarily due to the aero-optimized front surface. Thanks to the aerodynamic design of the surface area of the cockpit, the headwind is easily and skillfully streamlined past the frame. Air resistance is significantly reduced, and the power you put in is optimally converted into propulsion. Another factor is the maximum integration of the innovative aero cockpit. All cable pulls run internally.
How these aerodynamic advantages feel on the road has now also been experienced by the testers of TOUR: "Not only does the bike feel really fast, direct and agile, the seating position is also stretched like a race, the saddle is enthroned much higher than the handlebars. All this leaves no doubt what the bike is meant for."
The experts were also impressed by the great price-performance ratio. As usual, the Arcalis is also available with numerous exciting equipment options, including many new features in the new model year, depending on your ideas in the configurator. The Aero Performance is already available for pre-order at our specialist dealers. Made For Maximum Speed. Designed By STEVENS.
