Designing a great bike means blending performance with comfort. It's an art that our engineers have perfected with the Attain, which combines the stomp-and-go willingness of a race thoroughbred with the sublime comfort of a ride-all-day grand tourer. Who said you can't have your cake and eat it?Speed is nothing without control. That's why, for the Attain SL, we selected Shimano's proven 105 hydraulic disc brakes - so you can brake later and stay in full control, no matter what the conditions are. Combined with the slick reliability of Shimano's iconic 105 2x11 transmission and a selection of carefully curated components - including lightweight folding Continental tyres - it makes for a bike that offers a beguiling blend of comfort and pace.
