Cinelli Pressure – Cinelli launches Pressure aero road bike full integration in all-new aero road race bike
Cinelli is the latest to add an aero, disc brake road bike to their road bike family. And while modern aero road bikes have evolved to look so similar these days, there’s still a lot to be interested in this new white race bike.
Much like we’ve seen in similar aero road offerings, the Cinelli Pressure features a aerodynamically optimized shaping, with a nearly horizontal toptube, hidden wedge-style seatpost clamp, proprietary aero post, dropped seatstays, and a smoothly-shaped transition from the fork crown directly into the downtube. But while some aero bikes have gone for even deeper tube shaping, the new Pressure aims to strike more of a balance as a light all-rounder.
That’s resulted in a bike that has a claimed weight of just 990g (medium) and fork weight of 390g from the hi-mod T800 monocoque carbon frameset.
And of course furthering the integration, it has adopted fully-internal cable routing, using an FSA ACR system routing via the custom-painted, one-piece carbon Vision Metron 5D bar+stem combo cockpit and through the 1.5″ headset into the frame & fork.
Cinelli says it’s a “natural choice” to build the bike up with electronic groupsets, but the ACR system is compatible with mechanical or electronic disc brake groupsets, and there is one Shimano Ultegra mechanical build offered.
The disc brake-only Cinelli Pressure is outfitted with standard 12mm thru-axles, flat mount calipers, and gets a PressFit BB86 bottom bracket. Tire clearance is 30mm to fit big enough road tires modern racing.
The new Pressure is available in five stock sizes (46cm XS – 58cm XL) adapted from racer feedback of the Superstar. Core geometry remains mostly the same, with slightly shortened 410mm chainstays. Medium bikes get lower Stack, negligibly shorter Reach, and shorter wheelbases, while the smaller bikes get a bit smaller & larger bikes, a bit bigger to offer a better fit for more riders.
