Scott Plasma 6 triathlon bike speeds into a weekend at home with UCI-illegal design

first_imgScott’s all-new Plasma 6 triathlon bike is ready to fight for Ironman Worlds glory. But since this year’s Kona race was cancelled for the first time in over forty years, you’ll have to settle for going fast on the bike leg at home this year. Much like we’ve seen in modern aero road and other recent tri bikes, the new Plasma takes integration to a new level, without losing the fit adjustability that will make sure riders are fresh enough after 180km on the bike to run a marathon…All-new 2021 Scott Plasma 6 carbon triathlon bikec. Scott, photos by Pushing LimitsAll-out aerodynamics is the name of the game in tri bikes, without the UCI looking over your shoulder. So Scott says their four-year Plasma update project set out to “simply build the fastest bike the triathlon world has ever seen”. The result of more wind tunnel time was deeper integration, expanded on-bike aero storage, and maximized cockpit adjustability to dial in each rider’s position on the bike.Aerodynamic testing & optimizationphoto by Gee MilnarThe triathlete them self makes up much of the aero drag of the rider+bike, but also changes how the wind actually flows over the bike. So more than just using CFD or wind tunnel testing of the bike itself, the Scott Plasma 6 was developed from the absolute beginning with a rider aboard for real world aero performance.By now we all have a sense for what is aero. Keeping the front end aero is tricky, but it seems the wisdom is either to have the downtube almost touching the front tire, or kept far away from front wheel turbulence.The Plasma 6 chooses the latter, since even slightly turning the wheel induces big turbulence losses. Extending the frame horizontally back from the deep fork crown, the narrow & deep downtube is said to minimize drag better, even while turning or in varying wind conditions.Rear wheel cutouts with the tire tucked in close are a sure way to decrease drag over the rear end of the bike, but with varying wheel & tire setups, it’s hard to be so precise without risking tire rub. So Scott gives the bike a 6-position adjustable rear dropout to dial that tire in close.Integrated Storage & AdjustabilityThe UCI-friendly Scott Plasma 5 TT bike was already big on storage integration, but now the tri-only 6 takes it to the next level – taking advantage of deeper hollow frame sections and an add-on tail storage trunk. Inside the junction behind the headtube, a 575ml or 620ml hydration pocket means racers can drink without leaving their aero tuck or impacting crucial front-end aerodynamics, while a box between the aero bars keeps snacks at easy reach too.Then, a bottom bracket storage box is actually a removable 400ml squeezable polypropylene gel bottle that you can fuel from on the go. And the tail fin trunk extends storage space out back for spares or tools, both conveniently smoothing airflow over otherwise turbulent areas of the bike.The seatpost head of course offers tons of fit position adjustability, sliding on long rails. But it also incorporates a rear mounted bottle (or two) on a telescoping post that can be slid closer or further away from the rider’s body for an optimized aero position, close to the butt.Developed from the Syncros component side of Scott, a widely adjustable Creston iC TRI base bar & E1 Carbon extensions setup insures a wide range of possible positions – from elite pros to age-groupers. 2x Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee describes the new Plasma 6’s fit & integration as making, “no compromises when it comes to nutrition or storage. Being able to stay on the aero bars during fueling makes the system even faster… In short, yes it is faster!”Scott Plasma 6 Tri – Tech detailsBeyond aero & fit optimization, the new carbon Scott Plasma 6 uses top-spec HMX carbon to keep weight in check with all that surface area. Total claimed weight for the top-spec build is just 9.6kg. The 1.25-1.5″ deep aero fork with its aero fork tips and shrouded brake also get ultra hi-mod HMX carbon construction.All cable routing is fully internal. The bike only seems to support electronic drivetrains, but can be run with or without a front derailleur. The flat mount, disc brake only tri bike gets  12mm thru-axles and a PF86.5 bottom bracket2021 Scott Plasma 6 – Pricing & availabilityScott Plasma 6 PremiumOnly two complete triathlon build versions are available of the new Scott Plasma 6 bike for now. The top 15,000€ green Plasma 6 Premium gets a SRAM Red AXS build with Zipp 808 NSW wheels.Scott Plasma 6 RCAnd I guess you could call it more accessible, the 9000€ Plasma 6 RC opts for Ultegra Di2 & Syncros Capital 50mm deep carbon wheels. Both are available for pre-order through your Scott dealer, with delivery slated for the start of December 2020.Scott Plasma 6 framesetA 7000€ Plasma 6 frameset should also be available, in the same full five size range (XS-XL.)photo by Pushing LimitsScott-Sports.comlast_img read more

Cane Creek spreads their All-Road eeWings to accept 1x or 2x with new 110…

first_imgIn spite of their top shelf price tag, Cane Creek’s eeWings titanium cranks have been quite the hot item. Which isn’t really that surprising considering that they’re extremely light, stiff, and hopefully as durable as they are beautiful. But apparently, one thing they’re not is 2x compatible – at least until now (gravel/all road version only).Due to the shape of the crankset, spiders meant for SRAM’s GXP direct mount standard wouldn’t fit (unless you took a grinder to them). It’s possible that there might be a spider or two out there that would work, but to make sure that the cranks are fully 2x compatible, Cane Creek has just introduced their own spider for 1x or 2x 110 BCD chainrings.Machined from 7075 aluminum and finished with a black anodizing, the spiders come in two versions – 1x and 2x specific. While the 2x will allow you to obviously run 2x chainring combinations with 110 BCD, the 1x version will allow you to run 110 chainrings in a 1x configuration with the proper chainline without having to use a direct mount chainring. The 1x version may also allow you to run larger chainrings than you may be able to find in direct mount.The spiders will be available in December for $49 each, and are only compatible with the gravel/all road cranksets. If you were to mount the spiders on the MTB cranksets, the chainline would be off by a good margin, so for now, 2x eeWings are limited to the road and gravel world.canecreek.comlast_img read more

Tour of Missouri Gets State Funding to Keep Race Alive

first_imgMissouri Governor Jay Nixon yesterday approved the use of $1.5 million in state tourism funding to save the Tour of Missouri cross-state stage race for 2009.The race has been on the verge of being cancelled and going away (likely forever) due to lack of funds.  The stipulation for use of the money is that the race organizers must provide open book accounting to the tourism officials after the race so they can share how the money was used with the tax paying public…which is probably the way it should be for taxpayer funded initiatives, anyway (IMO).The 2009 Tour of Missouri is scheduled for September 7 – 13 with circuit races in St. Louis and Kansas City, and an individual time trial in Sedalia.  The other four stages are point to point routes.  They expect about 15 pro teams, including Astana, to participate.last_img read more

Found: Falkenjagd Limited Edition “Spartakiada” Titanium Road Bike

first_imgEarlier this year Falkenjagd showed us their new 650B titanium hardtail. Now, they have a limited Spartakiada edition of their performance/endurance Aristos road bike.Frame will have “Spartakiada Edition” on the top tube as well as a stylized ancient symbol of the character “A”. Only 25 will be made, available as a frameset or complete bike equipped with the new Sram RED, lightest Tune- and Schmolke parts and Continental GP Attack / Force tires. Claimed weight for a size Large is just 6.48 kg (14.29lb). PFBB30 and ZS44mm inset headtube combine with a round-to-oval top tube for a blend of stiffness up front and compliance in the rear.Click through for more pics and the inspiration for the model… From Falkenjagd:Historical background of Spartakiada: In 490 BC, according to Herodotus, the Athenian general Miltiades sent a herald to the Spartan king Leonidas requesting reinforcements against the invading army of the Persian King Darius. The messenger, a professional runner named Phidippides, traversed Peloponnese mountains to reach Sparta astonishing 270 kilometers away in phenomenal two days only. The superstitious Spartans hesitated against sending their soldiers during a full moon. On their own and beyond their wildest expectations the Athenians defeated the Persians at the epic battle of Marathon. Phidippides´ tragic run 42 kilometer (26miles) back to Athens to announce the news of the astounding Greek victory, brought his today legendary glory as he died therafter. In Greece Phidippides is as familiar to Greek school children as e.g. Davy Crockett is to American kids. King Leonidas from Sparta came to glory 10 years later (480 BC) at the decisive Battle of Thermopylae: 300 Spartans faced over 40.000 Persians. Before the battle the Persian king Xerxes requested Leonidas to lay down the weapons. Leonidas just answered with his famous sentence “Molon Labe” – “come and get them”.The Spartan king with his 300 hoplites could defeat Xerxes and his army for over one month until the Greeks had reorganized their defense. Leonidas died at this famous battle just by reason of perfidiousness.Today since 1988, in Greece this legendary event is celebrated by the “Spartathlon”, an ultra-marathon, and a cycling challenge, called “Spartakiada”. Both events follow Phidippides’ route as faithfully as possible from Athens to Sparta: The route is 270km long and contains approximately 3.900 meters difference in altitude. Each year thereafter an average 300 cyclists – according to Leonidas 300 hoplites – gather at the Olympic Stadium in Athens at 6:00 am on every first Saturday of October and cycle this daunting route in partly less than 8 hours.last_img read more

Kinetic Unfolds into the World of Rollers with new Prototype

first_imgThere are a lot of reasons for why you should train with rollers, but ease of transport and portability typically isn’t high on the list. That is probably why for Kinetic’s first set of rollers, they have focused not only on making a quality training tool, but one that is incredibly easy to fold up and take with you to your next race, training session, or whatever. Thanks to the tri-fold design, the aluminum roller frame folds up to a size that is more compact than their Road Machine trainer and will fit in a new trainer bag. This one here is just a prototype, but from the looks of it, it is incredibly simple to fold up and stow making it a great choice when portability is key. The rollers will use precision machined 90mm aluminum rollers which are 374mm wide. In order to facilitate left or right sided dismounts, the rollers use a dual groove so you can switch the band placement, and the rollers are adjustable to fit most bike sizes. Ready to ride straight from the box, the rollers will include an extra band and of course will carry Kinetic’s lifetime warranty. Expect these to be available this fall for somewhere around $300.In their never ending quest to get thru axle equipped bikes on trainers, Kinetic continues to develop new Traxles to do the trick. Traxles replace the thru axle on the bike and can be used both on the trainer and as an every day axle. The latest Traxle to get their attention is an option for 2013-14 Santa Cruz bikes that have a closed dropout on the drive side, which they will have available soon.kurtkinetic.comlast_img read more
