You asked for it, so here it is. IZALCO MAX goes aerodynamic. The new IZALCO MAX is now even faster. But achieving this was no mean feat. The concept behind the IZALCO MAX had to be rethought from the ground up. The IZALCO MAX accurately captures the spirit of our times and will change your perception of what makes the perfect road bike.

More than just the fastest

The new IZALCO MAX is more than just the fastest. It is a statement. The IZALCO MAX brings along more than just aerodynamics, low weight and incredible speed. It merges all its features into a thrilling experience, giving a deeper purpose to your ride. To get more out of every ride. Together with your friends. With more style, elegance and passion.

Our engineers have completely redesigned every tube and improved these in several stages within the wind tunnel. Every surface was scrutinised in order to achieve the best possible mix of aerodynamics and low weight. The result is a combination of Kamm tail profiles, hidden cables and well-balanced proportions. On paper, this combination results in a 6 per cent improvement in aerodynamic resistance*. This allows you to go faster and save a lot of energy during every ride, no matter how fast you go.

"We've not only integrated the cables - we've also hidden the screws to ensure that there is as little wind resistance as possible."

SMART AND SEXY

All the cables run inside the specially developed aero handlebar stem. The carbon fibre stem has a -15° negative design in order to compensate for the slightly raised position as a result of the internal cables. This allows us to guarantee you a perfect riding experience whilst also offering optimum aerodynamics. The benefits are visually pleasing. We offer the handlebar stem in five lengths, ranging from 80 to 120 mm.

SAFE AND FAST

We have further improved the fastest quick-release axle in the world R.A.T. Easier handling and a more aerodynamic structure meet the greater requirements of the IZALCO MAX.

We have stuck to our guns and only use disc brakes in the IZALCO MAX. Front and rear brake discs measuring 160 mm ensure safe and totally reliable braking performance. Especially for a road bike as fast as the IZALCO MAX.

AERODYNAMIC AND COMFORTABLE

In the past, having an aerodynamic shape resulted in less comfort. With the IZALCO MAX this contradiction becomes obsolete. The aerodynamic carbon seatpost has a D profile with 15 mm offset - thus offering the perfect mix of ergonomics and comfort.

In order to maintain the optimum sitting position, we have pushed the seat tube forwards so that the effective offset is only 2 mm. This means that you can enjoy the comfort of a seatpost with 15 mm offset, without having to forgo a modern racing sitting position. Titanium screws reduce the weight.

ADAPTABLE AND EASY TO TRANSPORT

The IZALCO MAX comes with a standard aerobar thus allowing for as many adjustment options as possible. You can adjust the height of the handlebar with ease using a two-piece special spacer.

The integration of the cables from the stem to the handlebar seamlessly continues internally. This handlebar stem unit can be easily removed in order to stow the bike safely in a bike case – for when you are en route to a race or training camp. You can attach a bike computer using an adapter.

MAX Carbon Technology

UCI certified

We have slightly updated and adapted the repeatedly proven geometry of the IZALCO MAX - which has claimed many Tour de France stage victories - to the current everyday demands of road cyclists. Additional important facts: The geometry of the sizes XXL and XXS has been specially adapted to the needs of cyclists big and small.

With our MAX Carbon Technology and the cable integration, we are laying the foundations for the best mix of aerodynamics and low weight. The streamlined, aerodynamic tubes complete the harmonic design. All cast from the same mould. Everything based on a single idea. More than just the fastest.
