Pro Bike: Kristian House's Condor Leggero SL

Condor's latest R&D frame ridden by British pro

This article originally appeared on BikeRadar

Long-time Condor rider and former British Road Race Champion Kristian House has been testing an R&D version of Condor's newest Leggero frameset – the Leggero SL – since August. Here's a sneaky look at the new frame ahead of its spring launch.

Weighing in at around 800g, the new Leggero SL – Super Light – is designed for mountainous terrain and will cost £2,999 with headset, fork and seat clamp when launched later this year. This latest iteration has been in the works for a year and, like Condor's other carbon frames, the SL uses hand-wrapped and hand-cut carbon rather than being made in a mould. The carbon itself is sourced from Japan.


House's bike is marked as an R&D prototype

The finish of the production models is yet to be finalised. The clear lacquer seen here on Kristian's R&D bike may be included on the final versions while Condor is also considering a team JLT Condor version complete with sponsors' logos and colourways.

House's model features full Campagnolo Record 11 EPS and is naturally specced with a traditional 53-39T crankset – although this one is complete with an SRM power meter, the head unit for which sits on the bars. The rear block is 11-25T. House also opts for Shimano Dura-Ace pedals.


Campagnolo's Record 11 EPS groupset fits nicely with the Condor's classy style

Campag also supplies the wheels, a pair of Hyperon Ultra Two hoops – worth more than £2,000 – are super light and stiff with a claimed weight of just 1,231g, helping to make short work of climbs rather than give an aero advantage. They're shod in Continental Competition tubs.

Fizik takes care of finishing kit, with Kristian's Leggero SL featuring Cyrano stem and bars wrapped in Superlight tape as well as an Arione R3 saddle above the Condor Supremacy Carbon seatpost. House also opts for Arundel bottle cages.
