Overview

An endurance road bike, the Valence Carbon delivers refined, long distance comfort in a sleek, race-ready package. An integrated ARC Endurance system delivers unrivalled vibration dampening, while the super stiff Power Chassis pedaling platform is the source of the bike’s punchy acceleration and a highly responsive ride feel – rewarding riders who like to get up out of the saddle. Endurance geometry means confidence-inspiring stability and control at high speeds, while disc brakes provide incredible control in any conditions.

Leaving the house before dawn so you can crack a century before lunch. Every kilometre earned. The ride is an escape and the journey is everything. The pace is up to you.
