Meet the FR. There’s a reason it’s our flagship race bike. Actually, there are dozens of reasons. But here’s all you need to know: If you’re looking for the best-handling, fastest-climbing, smoothest-riding road racing bike in the world, you’ve found it.

This is the bike of choice for both the men’s and women’s contingents of the Rally UHC Cycling pro continental team. The North American-based squad is amongst the most well-respected in the global pro peloton, thanks in large part to their professionalism. They’ve been steadily racking up race wins year in and year out while simultaneously developing the newest generation of cycling superstars. But they’re also a gutsy team that races each event with a tenacity like no other. The team’s primary goal for every race is to shake things up, rattle the nerves of their competitors, and give all of the fans lining the road or tuned in to their television sets the greatest show on two wheels. Whether it’s flying off the front of a breakaway, attacking the GC favorites up the final push of a queen stage climb, or stretching out the field with a white-knuckle display of bike-handling panache down a harrowing descent, the men and women of Rally UHC Cycling demand a bike that can not only do it all, but do it all phenomenally well.

The FR is the world’s best-performing platform for all road racing conditions. The FR | Advanced is crafted from several unique types of carbon fibers. UHC (“Ultra Hybrid Carbon”) Advanced fiber is high-modulus, meaning that it’s incredibly stiff to maximize pedaling efficiency and handling feedback. But it’s not quite as stiff as its more expensive sibling, UHC Ultimate (which is found on the FR FRD | Ultimate model). However, this makes the UHC Advanced a better option for most cyclists, as it helps yield a slightly more supple chassis to mitigate road feedback and suppress rider fatigue towards the end of a long road race. TeXtreme is another type of carbon that is not only found on our best-performing framesets, but is also utilized in the aerospace industry and on Formula One race cars to both add strength to a structure, as well as reduce its weight relative to alternative composite options. Now, we can talk about the materials themselves until the cows come home. But just like how the finest food ingredients demand the skills of a chef to yield a truly exquisite meal, bicycle frame materials require engineering expertise to produce a truly great bicycle. The FR | Advanced frame platform was developed by our engineering team, who have a combined 90 years of experience developing carbon fiber racing bicycles.
