Product Description

The Datum marks a turning point in road riding; the end of our unhealthy love affair with the 23c tyre.

And, herein lies the key to the new Datum – its’ 33c rubber boots. Turns out they’re not as slow and energy sapping as folks first thought and, we could even get used to what feels like riding on fast, 80psi pillows of air.

People are coming round to the fact that maybe, just maybe what the pro’s are using perhaps isn’t quite the right choice for them. It’s this ethos we’ve tried to emulate with the new Datum - distinctly traditional elements (in the return to the larger volume tyres of yesteryear) bought bang-up-to-date with the pairing of of disc brakes and a modern carbon frame.


BB86 Press-Fit BB

BB86 Press-Fit Bottom Bracket provides the basis for a stiffer, more efficient pedalling platform and wider spaced bearings which helps spreads the load increasing longevity to help you keep spinning smoothly mile after mile.

Shimano RS505 Hydraulics

Shimano continue to pave the way in regards to hydraulic braking in dropbar format. Their new ST-RS505 shifter units pick up where the ST-RS685 left off, combining conventional mechanical 11sp shifting and dedicated hydraulic braking in a more affordable, accessible package. They offer consistent, powerful braking and exceptional lever modulation all backed-up by Shimano's legendary reliability. A real game changer.

Challenge Strada Bianca

Brand new, larger 700x33c Challenge Strada Bianca clinchers use the same proven tread as found on their Paris-Roubaix model on a larger volume 33c casing. Competeively light @ 355g considering there's a PPS (puncture protection strip) underneath the tread too!

Fender friendly

Naturally there are mudguard eyelets – x2 on the inside of either fork leg just above the caliper which are still low enough to provide a stiff, supportive mount but unobtrusive if not in use, and threaded eyelets on the back of fork crown, backside of the bb shell and underside of the seatstay bridge (it’s only there to provide a mounting point for a mudguard). 32/33mm tyres and 45mm full-length guards should fit fine.
