F/Road Series 1 Black Metal
When only the best will do, we’ve selected all of our top-shelf components to build the F/Road Series 1. Featuring the silky smooth shifting of Shimano's top-tier Dura-Ace groupset for ultra quick shifting and transfering power through the Campagnolo BORA wheelset wheelset with the ceramic USB cup-and-cone bearing system and finished with our own carbon fiber integrated barstem, this build is an ultra-clean wind cheater that is also light enough to take on the fiercest of mountain passes.

• Approximate weight: 7.5kg (Size Dependent)
• Shimano Dura-Ace R9270 12sp Wireless Electronic Groupset
• Campagnolo BORA WTO 45 DB wheelset

Smart Aero

We set out to design the ultimate, do-it-all versatile race bike with light weight, advanced aerodynamics and agile handling, but without any of the bulk of the previous generation of aero road bikes. To achieve this, the frame’s head-tube, down-tube, seat-tube and seat-stays utilise NACA Airfoil tube shapes with truncated tails for optimal weight/aero balance and increased torsional stiffness.

Up front, the wide-stance aero optimised fork legs decrease airflow pressure around the wheel for drag-reduction. This advanced airfoil profile takes advantage of new UCI rules for maximum aerodynamic efficiency and minimum weight.

No more ugly, impractical external cables.

"The Fara Cycling F/AR is an absolute cracker – it feels like a race bike on the road, but can transfer that performance to hardpacked tracks and trails through its ability to swallow 38mm tyres."
"Its design engenders a real sense of freedom out on a ride."
"An ideal bike for racing one weekend, or exploring further from home the next week."
"Do you spend most of your riding hours on tarmac and want the occasional jaunt or trip into dirt? Then the Fara is absolutely the way to go."
"The F/All-Road felt lively and had a real spirit. Cutting down the descents, I felt like I was on a road bike and it was utterly fantastic."
"High-speed road bike that can tackle some rough stuff, with an awesome ride quality wherever you take it."
"The road speed impressed, but it was in the rough where I was more surprised. It's quick and impressively nimble."
"Fara definitely seems of the opinion that the best bike for any kind of occasion is the one that doesn’t stop you adventuring."
"The F/All-Road blurs the lines between road and gravel with neat bikepacking bag mounts and a beautiful finish."
