ABOUT THE FRAME
If raw speed is what you’re all about, the RERE has been designed with you in mind. RERE means “Flow” in Māori, which perfectly defines its aerodynamic credentials. The RERE has been the weapon of choice for anybody looking for a performance edge.
The RERE is positioned in our Aero Road category of frame platforms. Whilst most manufacturers have been extolling the virtues of Kamm-Tail aero frames, we went against the grain and developed a pure Aerofoil frame that slices through the air, yet still delivers that silky smooth ride quality.
Developed in the Auckland University Wind Tunnel, the RERE is the perfect combination of aerodynamic sculpting to deliver pure speed, yet compliance features seamlessly fuse into its tube profiles, such as the narrow and slightly kinked Seatstays that dampens any rough road conditions.
The RERE is available in both Rim (Direct Mount) and Disc versions to provide the stopping power and tire clearance expected of a frame platform designed for those long breakaway moments. Both the headtube and bottom bracket areas have been carefully reinforced with high-tensile directional carbon fibre to ensure the RERE tracks like it’s on rails and to convert every Watt you produce into forward motion.
