  • The Wessex SE is designed to be The Ultimate British Road Bike, designed to take you further, faster and in more comfort than any road bike we have ever designed.

    The Wessex SE is, without doubt, the fastest bike that can take full length mudguards. A stripped back finish means we have only lacquered the UD carbon finish to save weight. The lay-up utilises Core Shell Rubber - this nano-technology brings more comfort to both the fork and rear stays, resulting in less rider fatigue.

    SRAM Red eTap wireless shifting gives the ultimate in weather proofing with no cables to seal from the environment. Full hydraulic brakes give one finger control and a FSA Metron aero finishing kit completes our best of breed package.
