SECTION A2 WOMEN'S
The Section A2 is a lightweight, double butted X6 aluminum all-road rocket built around big tires and features that won't let any road interrupt the rhythm of a great day out.
With the frame and mid-modulus carbon fork’s lateral stiffness and shock-absorbing vertical compliance that allow for an efficient ride while smoothing out rough surfaces, the Section A2 lets you put your head down and keep your legs churning out the watts – no matter where the ride ends up.
Benefitting from a Shimano’s Tiagra 20 speed wide range drivetrain, the Section A2’s speed is confidently controlled in all types of weather by simple, lightweight Tektro dual piston mechanical disc brakes – which is great, because the ample tire clearance and stealthy mounting options for full fenders make the A2 ideal for all-weather riding. Thru axle hubs and WTB ST i21 TCS 2.0 tubeless ready rims and Schwalbe 700x32c tires provide confident, precise control on any road surface you encounter.
ABOUT THE SECTION ALUMINUM
The Section is built for long, fast rides, when you’re in it for more than just the scenery.
This all-road rocket is built around big tires and a lightweight frame with geometry and features that won't let any road interrupt the rhythm of a great day out. Its lateral stiffness and shock-absorbing vertical compliance allow for efficient power transfer while smoothing out rough surfaces so riders can keep their head down, and their legs churn-ing out the watts – no matter where the ride ends up.
PERFORMANCE HANDLING AND LATERAL STIFFNESS
The Section fits and rides like a road bike – because it IS a road bike, and we made it pedal like one. Its 12mm thru-axles, oversized head tube, down tube and chainstays provide excellent power transfer, and precise handling. It's not all about tube dimensions, though - we also scrutinized head angle, fork offset and trail to create a bike that reacts nimbly on the road but remains surefooted on unpaved surfaces.
VERTICAL COMPLIANCE FOR ALL-DAY EPICS
To complement the efficient pedaling of the Section, we engineered curved, bridgeless seatstays with a narrow profile, thinned seat and top tubes and an integrated seat collar to maximize seatpost extension – all contributing to the bike's vertical compliance – which is engineering speak for a smooth, fast ride over the bumpy stuff.
CONSISTENT RIDE QUALITY FOR ALL RIDERS
The lightweight frame and carbon fork uses tube dimensions and materials that provide similar ride qualities to every rider no matter what their height or power output. This size-scaled tubing provides ideal pedaling stiffness, while ensuring specifically-tuned vertical compliance.
MORE CONTROL AND SHOCK ABSORPTION
The Section doesn't just accommodate 28-35mm tires – it excels with them. We designed this frame from the ground up with features, geometry and clearance to run big tires, and we decided to spec them tubeless-ready, to add the control, shock absorption and puncture resistance that only big, tubeless tires can provide.
ALL THE MOUNTS YOU NEED
If you're riding fast all day, you need lots of water – so we built the Section to house three water bottles. Additionally, we added low-key fender mounts with clearance for 32mm tires, so a little bout of rain won't quash your grand plans.
