UNTIL THE ULTIMATE LAUNCH

Vulcan isn’t just a bike. Vulcan is an idea.

It’s the idea that all parts of a system should engage with each other harmoniously for the optimal result. The idea that the limits of human performance shouldn’t be further capped by the equipment we choose to use. In the same way that we choose a nutrition strategy that works with our bodies to get us around a race course without bonking, or we choose socks that work with our shoes so we don’t get blisters, the Vulcan system works to propel us through the bike leg of a triathlon and helps us feel more fresh and ready for the run.

This idea just happens to be embodied in a bike that combines precision engineering with world class aesthetics to create a masterpiece of triathlon weaponry. We truly believe this is the best combination of aerodynamics, compliance and out-right speed that it could well be the greatest triathlon bike ever produced.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be releasing our new hyper-bike piece by piece. Just watch the clock for the countdown to the next piece of the puzzle, and sign up to our newsletter to never miss a thing!

THE WORLD'S MOST COMPLETE AERO-INTEGRATED COCKPIT SYSTEM

We know from our own data that the majority of aerodynamic drag is not produced by the bike but by the rider, somewhere between 85-90%. This means that it is of paramount importance that we get you into an optimal position, which requires the right system to do that.

A system that is almost infinitely adjustable and fully integrated, while not causing massive inconvenience to you to alter when you need to find that perfect fit. The most all-encompassing aero cockpit system ever produced.

That is exactly the system we have created for the Vulcan, making it the first bike to have its own fully-integrated aero cockpit with carbon aero extensions. This is the world’s first triathlon hyper bike when combined with the integrated nutrition and hydration system (to follow).

With short and long-reach base plate options, the Vulcan’s cockpit system allows for a total of 50mm of forward and backward movement as standard, with custom options available too.

The mono-stack of the system utilises one of our proven aerodynamic tube profiles to allow a total vertical adjustment of 80mm, bridging the gaps between frame sizes to give everyone as perfect a fit as possible.

For optimum comfort and aerodynamics, you can adjust the width of your extensions by 60mm, with a further adjustment of 20mm coming from the arm rests. With independent attachment points, it is also possible to angle your bars in and out to suit you.

MAKING THINGS EASY IS HARD, SO WE'VE DONE IT FOR YOU

The Generation 1.0 was a triumph in many ways. It was the first bike we ever made, it rivalled the fastest bikes in the world aerodynamically, and in our testing came out on top, and it rode nearly perfectly, which didn’t give us much room for improvement. 

We have been back to the drawing board and spoken to our athletes in order to figure out better ways to do nearly everything in the hope that we made the Vulcan not only the best bike to ride on the road, but the easiest and most enjoyable to maintain, adjust and prepare off the road.

Your bike is both your training partner and your race machine so making sure it is shifting perfectly, braking perfectly and fitting perfectly all year round is key. Whether you’re travelling to Kona or driving to your local triathlon, you want to know your bike is going to perform wherever, without the stress of trying to fix things all of the week leading up to your race in preparation. So that’s what we’ve done, we’ve made the Vulcan superior in all the intricacies that we can. 

a hydration and nutrition solution ready for race day

Come race day, the number one priority is to preserve energy and reduce stress as much as possible. When consulting a number of athletes, we discovered that many of them thought that the fully integrated systems we see many manufacturers offering nowadays bring with them a high element of complexity. Integrated bladders and straws running through frames that are nearly impossible to clean properly and quick fill points that mean you end up losing some of your liquid spread across the front of your bike leaving a sticky mess. 

Although they are perhaps marginally more aerodynamically efficient than current non-integrated offerings, the time and energy spent refilling these “quick fill” systems during a race outweighs this aerodynamic advantage in many cases. Not to mention time spent out of your aero position expends further energy also.

With the hydration and nutrition system developed for the new VULCAN, we went back to basics. A BTA bottle mount that neatly shields any standard bottle from oncoming air and sits in a convenient place for you to use, a behind-the seat bottle and tool-box system that hides neatly behind your legs and places for 8 gels to be stored for your race. 

One athlete we spoke to competed at Ironman Lanzarote last year and consumed 8 litres of fluids over the bike. If he started the bike with 1 litre of fluid on board, he had to re-fill his hydration system 7 times which constitutes to a lot of time out of aero position and a lot of wasted energy. With our hydration system, all he would need to do is discard to bottle from his BTA bottle cage and replace the new one from the aid station or from behind his saddle, saving time and precious energy.

Over the 180km bike course of an Ironman race, the misfortune of puncturing can ruin any athlete’s race day. On the VULCAN, you can carry everything you need just in case of any mid-race mechanicals in the tool-box placed inbetween the two bottles behind your saddle. A spare tube, tyre levers, a gas cannister and a multi-tool.
