Quintana Roo Debuts SRsix Aero Road Bike
February 25, 2021
Tunnel-proven aerodynamics, modern tire clearances and fully internal cables on a lightweight platform highlight the newest member of the SR series range.
Chattanooga, TN (February 25, 2021) — Quintana Roo announces the debut of the SRsix, QR’s premium-level aero road bike model. The SRsix joins the SRfive to compliment Quintana Roo’s suite of aero road bikes; the SRseries. Drawing on decades-long heritage in aerodynamics study in developing its race and award-winning triathlon bike range, QR’s new SRsix bike was developed to be one of the fastest, smoothest-riding and practical aero road bikes available on the market today.
“An aero bike should work as well in the real world as it does in the laboratory,” said Brad DeVaney, design engineer behind the SRseries range. “With this in mind, we have developed a bike that works best for everyday athletes and enthusiasts, without compromise.”
The new SRsix is Quintana Roo’s response to cyclists demanding a road bike that can do it all: climb, descend and slice through the wind with speed and comfort, all in a lightweight package, with the stock SRsix frame weighing 995 grams in size medium – including all factory specified items: water bottle bolts, derailleur hanger and inserts.
As is standard in Quintana Roo’s product development history, the SRsix design is backed by sound engineering and testing. Tube form is at a depth to create aero advantage, with subtle shaping employed to deliver a smooth ride that rivals that of its competitors, in a category marked by overly stiff aero road offerings.
The SRsix ticks every box of what a modern aero road bike should require: electronic or mechanical shifting readiness, tire clearance up to 32mm and in a highly integrated design that hides all brake and shift cables, it’s fully adjustable in cockpit stack and reach with a range of integrated handlebars.
It’s also a competitor against its rivals in the wind. Developed to perform in low and control in yaw conditions, the SRseries platform is competitive against three aero road offerings from industry competitors in head-to-head wind tunnel testing without bottles, then proceeded to outperform all three with bottles on the downtube and seattube. It was our confirmation that not only is the SRsix among the fastest aero road bikes in the world, it’s one of the fastest in real world instances—namely when riding with bottles on the bike.
Comprised of our lightest carbon frameset and a superlight, slightly shape-modified version of the QR aero fork, the SRsix is paired with a variety of top-tier component and wheel options befitting it as our top-tier offering.
The SRsix is painted to order at our factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with over 40 frame color and graphic color combinations, as well as an exclusive Toro Red livery, available only on the SRsix.
Features of the SRsix include:
- UCI-approved full carbon frameset, engineered and wind tunnel tested to optimize aerodynamic advantage across a variety of wind conditions.
- Geometry and tubeset shaping tailored to deliver a sharp, predictable handling, with engineered comfort over the long miles on rough roads.
- Modern tire clearance capability, with clearance up to 32mm on most tire/wheel combos
- Wide range of Vision Metron 5D Integrated one-piece cockpit length/width options, with complete internal disc brake and shift cables
- A threaded T47 bottom bracket
- Rotor INpower dual-sided or single-sided power meter upgrade options available
Pricing for the SRsix starts at $5,649, outfitted with Shimano Ultegra components and a DTSwiss E1800 disc wheelset. The SRsix tops out in its premium build at $10,949, outfitted with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and a Zipp 404 NSW carbon tubeless disc wheelset. All build options of the SRsix can be configured and ordered direct online at quintanarootri.com, or special ordered through Quintana Roo’s global network of specialty retailers.
Like all Quintana Roo models, the SRsix is rider-friendly when it comes to shipping, assembly and mechanical service. When shipped, the SRsix comes 90% assembled and takes just a few minutes to assemble. All a rider needs is a basic knowledge of bike mechanics and two sizes of Allen wrenches. At the bottom of the Quintana Roo homepage, there are home bike assembly videos to aid in the process. Quintana Roo also offers its Home.Delivery.Right premium delivery option, taking your fully-built SRsix to your door, ready to ride.
