The Roux Vercors R9 features a lightweight 6061 series heat treated butted aluminium frame. The butting process reduces alloy wall thickness in less critical areas.
This reduces the weight of the frame and also alters the way the frame rides.
It becomes more compliant and responsive.
The Vercors R9 has an uncompromising specification, with a full Shimano Tiagra groupset including brakes, Shimano wheels and Schwalbe tyres.
Smooth welds and internal cable routing look clean and fresh. This is a great all round road bike without resorting to the cost of carbon.
