Bike Check: The E-119

All In: Fully integrated

The first tri bike on the market with fully concealed disc calipers, integrated into the frame. As always, we look for integration without headaches: precision engineered for adjustability, ease of maintenance, and heat dissipation – all at zero drag increase over the hidden caliper brakes of the previous generation E-119 Tri+.

Integration throughout the design also means a hidden toolkit in the BB and an integrated bento box. Our focus was on full-system aero integration: bike and rider, plus all carry-ons.

Always aero: Ultimate Speed

The E-119 Tri+ Disc offers up to a 10W advantage over the previous-generation E-119, considering frame optimization, system integration, and compatibility with advanced aero components, such as wheelsets. When optimal rider position is factored in using new fit range capabilities, it can add an additional advantage of up to 7W.

We took what we learned through rigorous development of the Electron Pro track bike – and stripped away the UCI limits. Lowering the seatstay/seattube connection, revising the fork and handlebar profiles, removing quick releases, and redesigning the toptube/seattube junction are among the things that allowed us to optimise aero results.

Optimized Fit: Improved cockpit

Achieving and maintaining aero position for a full Ironman course is a major challenge. We worked with fitter Mat Steinmetz from 51 Speedshop to develop a completely new cockpit that allows for a wide fit window, while prioritising ease of travel and maintenance. Custom grips with electronic shifter integration (no more bar tape!), a flippable basebar that gives you either aggressive or more relaxed positions (0 or +5cm) and added stiffness of the bayonet fork mean immediate response – for ultimate speed and confidence.
