Conquer your city on the new urban carbon bike by ROSE
The Tape Art Project
RECLAIM YOUR CITY
You ride the streets of your city every day. You know them all: the major pulsating traffic arteries, the quiet cycling paths through the park, the dark alleys. Break free from the monotony of everyday life and explore your neighbourhood from a totally different perspective! 1400 grams of finest carbon fibre formed into the new ROSE urban bike make it possible! The CPTL stands out for a striking, fully integrated frame design, high comfort and premium features that leave nothing to be desired. It is driven by a high-quality Gates CDX carbon belt to offer unparalleled durability. A Shimano Alfine 11-speed gear hub ensures smooth shifting. It is thanks to its special design that an extremely long seat post is used, providing high flexibility and comfort. As the bike is compatible with a wide range of tyres up to 50mm, you’ll even smoothly ride over badly maintained roads in your hood with ease.
One platform, three styles
The CPTL frame represents the basis for three different models that all weigh less than 13 kg in total, fully equipped. The drivetrain is complemented by a Shimano Alfine 11-speed gear hub – for extremely smooth shifting. Yet, comfort also means to stay dry – that’s why the CTPL features a stylish mudguard/rear rack combination by Wingee. It is extremely lightweight, features a built-in tail light and allows the transport of two pannier bags – with up to 8 kg each. Perfect for commuting to work! Powerful Shimano Metrea disc brakes provide great braking performance in road traffic.
For cyclists who like retro styles, we have fitted the CPTL RETRO with a Brooks B17 Imperial leather saddle and Brooks leather grips of the same colour. WTB Horizon Road Plus tan-wall tyres top off the bike’s high-quality appearance. These large-volume road tyres allow for outstanding traction and a smooth ride on uneven terrain.
Last but not least – the CPTL as a speed bike! In contrast to its siblings, this version completely does without mudguards and lights. Perfect for minimalists! Another difference: the wheel size. The CPTL SPEED is fitted with 28“ ROSE R THIRTY DISC wheels; the two other versions roll on smaller 27.5” models. The larger sized wheels ensure smooth running and let you quickly roll over asphalt roads once you’ve gathered pace.
