Its design, geometries and the materials utilised are optimised for use with a disc brake. The IDOL frame is made from SUPER HI-MODULUS fibre with a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%) , thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to their maximum. IDOL is offered in six frame sizes. Shimano Ultegra Di2 Drivetrain With the same electronic shifting technology used on Shimano's top of the line Dura Ace groupset and only a minor weight penalty over its more expensive sibling, it is no wonder the 11 speed 6870 Di2 Ultegra groupset has been so highly rated in the cycling press. Shimano's Di2 electronic shifting is as precise and responsive as it gets, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, every time, with the minimum of effort. The Di2 system is fully programmable with features such as multishift, allowing you to hold a shift button down for a full sweep through the cassette. With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 52 / 36 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence. Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes The all new Shimano dropbar hydraulic disc brakes give the Idol the stopping power it needs down the hills. The dual piston caliper ensures even brake wear and a greater performance. Its index shifting mechanism offers the 11 speed drivetrain an economical brake / gear lever but a smooth and elegant gear change. Fulcrum Racing 5 wheelset The best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from strength to strength thanks to the new design. The same qualities that have made the Racing 5 such a popular wheelset in the past, combined with new elements, make for an affordable but race ready wheel. The front wheel has a rim height of 24mm and delivers optimal handling whilst the rear has a rim height of 27.5mm and allows better transmitting of your power to the wheel. The asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symmetry to an asymmetric component. 3T Finishing Kit Finally, completing the package is the 3T finishing kit, with a Prologo saddle topping it off.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles... Find out more details about Wiggle here.
