Quintana Roo debuts V-PRi Flagship Triathlon Bike
January 26, 2024
Chattanooga, TN /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The pursuit of perfection doesn’t stop for any triathlete — against the clock, against competition, toward personal glory. At Quintana Roo, this pursuit has been a constant for decades. We design, develop and bring to market bikes that represent the best in aerodynamic efficiency, weight savings and practicality, helping every triathlete maximize their potential.
The V-PRi is the latest generation of one of the fastest bikes in multisport, the V-PR. However, it’s more than a simple refinement.
Developed with our team of industry-leading engineers and featuring prototype testing input from our pro athletes, the V-PRi finds aerodynamic improvements with deeper aero cross sections. It includes Quintana Roo’s first fully integrated cockpit, internal hydration and internal nutrition storage, exhibits category-leading weight savings and maintains a high level of packability for traveling triathletes. In short, the V-PRi is the finest high-performance triathlon bike in the world.
V-PRi’s new FuelBay™ storage allows athletes to carry both nutrition and hydration inside the frame, without compromising the frame’s clean aerodynamic lines with bags and bottles. FuelBay™ hydration is easy to refill on the fly, and FuelBay™ nutrition storage allows six gels to be placed in the top tube.
The V-PRi frame and fork each feature deep aero cross sections throughout, including a cowling shielding the front disc brake caliper on the fork. While several shapes change throughout, the V-PRi frame maintains signature QR aerodynamic elements, including the LEA.2 Leading Edge Absent non-driveside chainstay, and Shift offset downtube that diverts airflow onto the cleaner non-driveside chainstay.
The new Intelligent Integration Cockpit (IIC) featured on the V-PRi transitions seamlessly to the frame at the headtube, delivering clean airflow from cockpit to frame. The IIC Cockpit features stack rise options from 30mm to 120mm above basebar in 5mm increments, with pad placement options and extension length and angle options, each aspect allowing precise fit adjustment in an elegant, lightweight carbon fiber form.
Wind tunnel testing at 24mph across a full yaw sweep from -15 to 15 degrees saves an average of 6.2 watts compared to its predecessor.
At 19.32 pounds in its lightest trim (Stealth paint, outfitted with SRAM RED 1X eTap AXS and Zipp Firecrest NSW 454/858 wheels), the V-PRi remains among the lightest triathlon bikes in the market.
Available as a complete bike, athletes ordering their bikes online can select between Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 components (with a Stages dual-sided power meter) or SRAM RED eTap AXS 1X components (with Quarq’s RED AXS power meter) and option of either DT Swiss ARC 1100 DICUT (62mm/80mm) or Zipp Firecrest NSW 454/858 wheelsets. Both options feature watt-saving CeramicSpeed OSPW and bottom bracket upgrades.
The V-PRi is available in three sizes (Small, Medium & Large). Pricing starts at $13,699, purchased at quintanarootri.com or through select QR retailers. More information on the V-PRi can be found below:
