Think of the Indian Pacific Wheel Race, the Pan American Highway, the Transcontinental. Colibri is for ultra-long distance endurance routes, striking the balance between pace, handling, and comfort.

With clearance for up to 32 mm tyres (Reef forks) or 28 mm tyres (Nemo forks), Colibri is responsive and forgiving: a rewarding ride that eats up billiard-table smooth bitumen yet can more than handle odd sections of grit.

A comfortable climber, Colibri’s longer chainstays and disk brakes make for fast, controlled descents and confidence inspiring handling, allowing you to go further for longer at greater speeds. The ride full carbon fork with tapered steerer and headtube, giving precise cornering and increased feedback.

An all-season endurance racer, Colibri takes on all road conditions making it ideal for the Fred Whitton or the mountain climbs of the Tour de France. This is the bike for Galibier, Ventoux, Glandon, Alpe d’Huez, Bealach Na Ba, Bwlch-y-Groes, Wrynose, the list is endless.

Carbon frame and fork

Stiff, fast, agile, and extraordinarily light carbon frame.

Endurance race inspired geometry

Thin seat stays increase compliancy over the bumps, increasing comfort without sacrificing stiffness and speed.

Internal cable routing

Full internal routing means tidy cables, clean lines, and reduced potential for cable snags.

Tapered headtube

Tapered steerer and headtube gives more precise cornering and increases feedback when riding.

Tyre clearance

Clearance for up to 32 mm tyres (Reef forks) or 28 mm tyres (Nemo forks)

Forgiving angles

A longer wheel base promotes stability and comfort on the downhills.

Frame spec

Compliant and stiff, nothing matches a carbon frame in ultra-endurance racing.
