When it came time to redesign our most popular frame in the Houseblend lineup, our goal was to take this solid performer to the next level. Based on its popularity and the feedback from serious amateurs and professional competitors, we choose to stick with the performance based oversize force-specific tubeset that has been the foundation for countless victories.
To further enhance the R340's race pedigree, it has been redesigned with our proven Race Pace geometry providing an aggressive feel and more responsive handling. The Helix Technology seatstays assist in resisting vertical forces allowing for improved sprinting and climbing. The R340 possesses the stiffness, lightweight and durability to withstand the rigors of competition and aggressive club riding on any road.
