Smoothie HP (Endurance Road Disc)

The Smoothie HP is the “high protein” version of our Smoothie road frame that was part of our line for almost 20 years. Extra large diameter, thin-wall Tange Prestige chromoly coupled with modern touches like thru-axles and compact geometry give this frame increased power transfer and road feel while still delivering a composed and plush ride at all speeds. The re-designed geometry combines a comfortable higher stack with a shorter wheelbase that rewards skillful riders.

Frame Features:

- Tange Prestige heat-treated double butted CrMo steel

- Extra oversized down tube and chainstays for greater pedaling stiffness

- Ovalized top tube for increased lateral stiffness and vertical compliance

  • Do you have build recommendations for the Smoothie HP?

    For most of our frames we usually don't recommend much beyond stay practical and reliable. For the Smoothie HP since it is a little more purpose-built for a certain type of performance, we would recommend faster, lighter wheels and tires with fast rolling casings. They will help you spin up to speed faster and the frame will help you maintain momentum. Not wiggly light wheels; you do want some stiffness for cornering. We think this is more important than deep aero wheels, but build it however you want.
