Optimized 48x17 Ratio: Keeping in mind the urban cyclist's need for the perfect balance between speed and control, the updated 48x17 ratio offers enhanced performance and efficiency on city roads with unlimited skid patches for those still riding brakeless.

Sleek Internal Cable Routing: Beyond the clean aesthetics, the internal cable routing offers improved aerodynamics and protection from the elements, ensuring a smooth and dependable ride every time.

CNC'd 144BCD Chainring and Crank: Precision-engineered with CNC technology, the new chainring and crank not only look stunning but also provide unrivaled strength and durability. At 144BCD allows for a wide variety of chainring option

New Wider Wheels: The Black Label v3 boasts an updated rim measuring at an impressive 19mm internal width laced to sealed-bearing hubs.
