The HOY Sa Calobra .001 offers the same ride characteristics as the .004, sharing its DNA and identical geometries. The frame is made from lightweight triple-butted 6061 aluminium with a full carbon fork, and gearing comes from Shimano’s well regarded Sora groupset with FSA chainset. Durable Alex wheels and HOY handlebars, stem, seatpost and saddle finish off this great value package that’s perfect for the aspiring racer or enthusiast alike.
The Sa Calobra is a true all-rounder that’s as equally at home racing as it is in a sportive or longer weekend ride, capable of handling typical UK roads or Spring Classic terrain. In the saddle you will find the Sa Calobra offers a fast, nimble ride with a confident and reassured character, effortlessly carving through sweeping corners and willing you to pedal faster on the open stretches. A 100% monocoque carbon fork, thin-wall slim seat stays and a tapered top tube maintains rider comfort while the front end of the bike retains plenty of rigidity for power transfer and a quick handling response. The down tube broadens into the bottom bracket for maximum stiffness and oversized, multi-profiled chain stays help ensure power from each pedal stroke is transferred to the road. We have also utilized proportional tubing through the sizes to help keep weight down and ensure smaller frames aren’t too harsh whilst the larger sizes maintain stiffness.
