Earlier this month, Quintana Roo snuck in a new triathlon superbike. The V-PR features a completely new design that drops a bunch of weight while improving on aerodynamics, range of fit, and how the bike is delivered. While it’s an optional program, Quintana Roo’s new Fit-Ready program means you can get a tri bike delivered right to your house, already custom fit to your exact measurements.

Lighter Weight

Citing a new carbon cloth used in the construction, the V-PR drops the weight to 2,169 grams which includes the frame, fork, seatpost, QBox, and TT storage for a 52cm frame. Q-Roo claims that results in a complete stock bike configuration that is up to nearly 2lbs lighter than some competitors. That weight also includes the move to a T47 threaded bottom bracket—something we’re seeing more and more of with every bike launch.

Shift+ Aerodynamics

In terms of aerodynamics, Quintal Roo benchmarked the V-PR against the Cervelo P5. At 30mph, and from -20 to 20° yaw, Q-Roo claims the V-PR averaged 9.5 watts faster than the P5. Compared to their own PRsix2 Disc, the V-PR is 5.02% more efficient. A big part of that is what Q-Roo calls their Shift+ technology that diverts air to the cleaner, non-driveside side of the frame.

Onboard storage & Hydration

For hydration, Q-Roo claims the V-PR was designed to be faster with standard round water bottles on board than without. Simply because standard round water bottles are easier to clean and use than an integrated bladder system. Up front, the bike is designed to accept the Profile Design Aeria aero bottle or the HSF/Aero HC 800+ bottle.

Nutrition storage is offered through an aero top tube nutrition box which is a rigid rubber design with a zipper closure.

And for tools and spares, the removable QBox has been updated with a more compact design. It still has plenty of room for the essentials, and even offers mounting slots for a rear light.

Cockpit Options

Consumers have the choice of two different cockpit options in the form of the Vision Pro and Vision TFA. The Pro cockpit is the more expensive, most aero carbon option which promises 8% faster extensions which could save 9.4 seconds over 40km. Of course, many will opt for the TFA combination which actually offers the widest fit variance.

Fit-Ready to your door

All those adjustments can be a pain to set up though, which is why Quintana Roo is now offering their Fit-Ready program—something they’re calling an industry-first. Instead of getting a new bike in and having to set it up to your exact fit through trial and error, Q-Roo will now do the setup for you before it arrives. Simply send Q-Roo your fit data, the form above, and an additional $250, and they’ll cut the extensions, set up the armrest spacers, position your saddle, cut and bleed brake hoses, and completely dial the bike in. At that point, the bike is delivered to your door through their Home.Delivery.Right which means the bike is 90% assembled and requires minimal steps to be ride-ready.

Pricing & Availability

The V-PR starts complete at $8,840 with prices rising from there based on component choice, finish, and options like Fit-Ready. It will also be available in a frameset, starting at $5,340. Bikes are available for order now, with an average lead time of six weeks to paint, build, and deliver it to your door.

I would not recommend buying the new VPR bike! There are clearly issues with the bike and QRs engineers even admitted that to me as I worked with them to troubleshoot the problems. Bottom line, I spent $13K on a new VPR and I’ve had nothing, but issues with the bike since day one.  When I finally asked for my money back they suggested I sell the bike on the Pros Closet – basically leaving me with a defective bike and suggesting I just sell the defective bike to someone else. 

Just as background, I’ve been a triathlete for more than 10 years. Last 5 years I’ve been a consistent top 5 Age Grouper with podiums in my last 5 races. Before my VPR I had a cervelo P3 w/ Di2 and NEVER had a single issue with my bike. I was looking to upgrade because I wanted a more aerodynamic bike and I wanted to upgrade to the Shimano 12 speed.   

From day one I’ve had nothing, but issues with the VPR. Shifting has been terrible. When I pulled up the Shimano app I noticed the offset was set to the maximum (-18). When I tried to adjust the offset and smooth out the shifting, the shifting got even worse. Even though I’ve had a Di2 system for years, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong, so I took it to my local bike shop. They confirmed I wasn’t crazy and said something was definitely wrong with the bike. After sharing this with QR (in writing), they asked me to ship the bike back to them and credited the fee charged by my local bike shop.  

Flash forward 3 weeks when I got the bike back from QR …. I went for a ride and I was still having issues. Chain would drop, shifting wasn’t quick, something was just off. I called QR and they asked me to send the bike back to them again …. This time they setup a call with me and their chief engineer. What he shared with me was very surprising … first, he said I wasn’t crazy and he saw what I saw as far as issues. He said the tolerances on the new Dura ace Shimano setup was causing “movement” and problems with the shifting. His recommendation was we move down to an ultegra cassette and chain and that should “minimize” the issue. He also said he was working with his engineers to address “tolerance issues” uncovered as they’ve rolled out the new VPR. Simply NOT what you want to hear from the chief engineer after you spent $13K+ on a bike!  

When I go the bike back after its second trip back to QR, I ran into the same issues. Dropped chain and shifting issues. My chain dropped in AC 703 as well as Worlds in St George. By this point, I had enough. I reached back out to QR and said the bike is clearly defective, you can’t fix it, and I’m just tired of going back and forth on this. The bike is supposed to just work – it shouldn’t be this difficult. 

Simply put, the VPR is defective and their engineers either don’t know what the problem is or they haven’t fixed it. It doesn’t shift smoothly or properly, it’s maxed out at a -18 offset on the rear derailer just to make it functional, it can’t be transferred and used on a trainer (shifting is clunky), and I can’t even use all the gears with my HED disc wheel (the derailer rubs against the disc break because it’s set to a -18 offset just to function).  

Given all of the above I reached out to QR asking what they thought was a fair path forward. Again, their response was sell it on Pro Closet. As outlined above, this has been an incredible inconvenience and something I’ve had to deal with all year long. For $13k+ I deserve a bike that just works and works as advertised. Given all of that, it’s QR’s position that I should somehow be stuck holding the bag on this? Doesn’t quite seem fair …. Bottom line, by a Cervelo, buy a Canyon, buy anything other than a QR. The product, and their customer service, is complete garbage.
