The mountain goat. The featherweight. For the passionate rider. 

Classical lines, minimal weight & focus on ride quality. 


The CIMA is not just engineered in Europe but we also brought back the manufacturing to Portugal. So we not only managed to cut down it's weight but also the transportation related CO2 emissions.

This greater control on the design and production helped us achieve what we believe is the ultimate modern classic road bike.

WHY?
If road bike development of the last few years feels off the track you are not alone. While the benefits of the disc brakes is unquestionable, the proprietary components, forced integration and marketing driven "aero is everything" messaging is a caricature what bikes should be really about.

HOW?
So we went back to where things still felt right and looked at the modern standards that actually make sense. State of the art materials, flex characteristics validated by dynamic modeling and real life testing, a touch of individualization by full custom color service and so the CIMA was born.
What it is is simple: pleasant to look at, exciting to ride and easy to work on it. 

 

If you want a truly individual product we are able to offer a fully custom color service. As a starting point RAL colors are widely available, but lot of our customers are inspired by their dream car colors. Currently offering a single color option with individual branding (stripes & Pastel branding). 
Finishing option can range from full matt to glossy.

Cable Integration

 Weather to chose fully integrated cables or keeping them external boils down to personal preferences and riding goals - we are happy to offer both solutions for the CIMA.

 

External Cables

The classical solution for disc brake bike for the ones who want to achieve lightest weight and easiest maintenance

PRO's:

  • lightest weight possible
    (fork and handlebar without extra reinforcement can be used)
  • easy maintenance
    (stem length and handlebar width can be changed within minutes, no need to disconnect and bleed brakes for headset maintenance)

 



Internal Cables

The contemporary solution for a sleek look and aero performance.

PRO's:

  • sleek look
    (cables running full internal trough the handlebar and headset)
  • aerodynamic performance
    (with the cables out of the frontal area and a more aerodynamic shaped handlebar a few watts can be saved everywhere but the steeper climbs - where weight is still king)

 

Carbon Aero-Wheelset

45 DEEP | 30 EXT | 24 INT | 1490G
PHASE Carbon AllRoad 24:45 Wide

Reliable, light, aero, adjustable. A contemporary 24mm inner rim width supports modern tire widths, 30mm external widths keeps wider tires in the aero sweet-spot and the rim is hooked, so all tires are compatible not only selected tubeless models.

The Sapim CX aero spokes are laced to our gravel proven PHASE centerlock hubs which are adaptable for XDR, N3W and Microspline freehub bodies. The rim is tubeless compatible and comes with tubeless tape pre-installed.



Phase Carbon 45mm

Carbon Spoke Aero-Wheelset

50 DEEP | 30 EXT | 24 INT | 1290G
PHASE Carbon AllRoad 24:50 Wide 
An engineering masterpiece. All the wide rim, tubeless benefits from the already exceptional standard wheelsets, but this one bumps the depth to 50mm and is laced with superlight aero carbon spokes. Each spoke has a weight of 3.2g - about half of a traditional metal one.

Thanks to the additional stiffness only 20 spoke per wheel is sufficient for an a exceptionally  lightweight, reactive, yet comfortable ride quality.

Weight matters

Focus on ride quality

We wanted the exciting feel of a pure race bike without the harshness that often comes from aero tube profiles. The result is a springy yet comfortable ride that reacts to your smallest inputs without beating you up on longer rides.

Fantastic framekit

Built up a framekit to a bike in 9.2023, the Cima makes me smile whenever i ride it. Had bikes same less weight before, but not including that stiffness, disc-brakes and performance . 6,4 Kilo for a disc bike aint that special today, but i could reach it sub 6000 Euro including Sram Red AXS

In LOVE with my Pastel CIMA

About to start into the second season with my Pastel CIMA and couldn't be happier with it. It's just a true classic with it's timeless design and represents pure elegance. The bike is a feather-light weight and very agile machine which gives you such a good feeling while conquering the mountain. If you're looking for a road bike that not only looks good (because you can choose your favourite colour ;) but also offers a fantastic riding experience, you'll love the Pastel CIMA!
