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.
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.
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.
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.
