Overview

Epoca R60 frame is the latest evolution of our modern R50 model, whereas the R50 has an aero profile traditional shaped vertical profile seat tube, the R60 has an oversized curved seat tube. The seat tube profile at the bottom bracket is wider, allowing us to build an even stiffer frameset. We have also modified the downtube and top tube for even greater strength, not only in terms of profile, but also in terms of construction. Each tube is made with a unique mix of layers of carbon and added Kevlar, using the very best carbon money can buy (sorry we wish to keep the exact details secret for now) the result is a frame which offers the absolute maximum in performance. If the R50 was a rocketship the R60 is a starship ready for warp factor 9!

Even with this added performance, the R60 is still comfortable with balanced handling qualities, therefore still suitable for longer events as well as shorter events such as criteriums and short distance triathlon.

When we created the R60 our goal was to make the best carbon road frame in the market, no expense spared. Read our customer reviews to see how the R60 just blows away any other road frame.

Epoca R60 Power Performance, No Compromise.

Specifications & Design

With our Epoca custom tube technology we can tune each customers frame to their perfect needs. Each tube is in fact many layers of carbon, we can alter the performance of each tube by tuning the layup of the carbon, how the woven layers “interlock” to build in compliance and therefore comfort. By adding to the number of layers of carbon we can also build in added strength.

After each tube is cut to size and shape, we then join them together with handmade “joints” we can also alter the resistance and strength of these joints based on the rider’s profile and requirements.

Even if you are a 60kg mountain goat or a 100kg power house, the end result is a frame that is ideal for each and every owner.

  • The fork is FCR Flute carbon for exceptional handling and comfort.
  • The R60 features a tubeset with profiles designed to add extra strength to areas of greatest stress.
  • With integrated carbon seat pin, which has a total of 6cm of adjustment.
  • We offer classic BSA bottom brackets by default [in engineering terms it is still the best] as well as various BB30 and press fit options if required.
  • Cable routing, internal electronic EPS®, Di-2® or SRAM e-tap®

How to order

Just as a tailor would measure his client up for their clothes we will need to take some of your measurements to enable us to design your frame. Ideally this will be done at your nearest Epoca dealer or agent. However, if this is not possible then we can take these measurements at distance, we have over 20 years’ experience of working at distance with our expert Bio Mechanics at VeloSolutions. We offer a money back guarantee that with the correct measurements your Epoca frame will be the perfect fit for you. No more risks with working with so called experts who do a good job of building you a garden gate instead of a bicycle frame.

Once we have your key measurements and some other simple data we will supply you with your own custom, scale frame design. Once this is approved the average time required to build your frame is 4 to 5 weeks. Painting your frame then takes from one to four weeks depending on the complexity of your design.
