CARBON ROAD FRAME
The ideal bike for a cyclist who is ready to move up to a high-performance frameset, and experience the renowned Photon ride quality.
The new Photon is the fourth member of the Photon Series and lives up to it's family name. Designed and engineered with the legendary ride quality of the original Photon, the new Photon is laterally stiff while remaining vertically compliant.

Equipped with a BB86 bottom bracket, our R&D team built the new Photon with wider profile tubes similar to the Photon R, while achieving the vertical compliance found in the Photon SL. The new Photon is a responsive frame and a true powerhouse.

Manufactured as the entry level frame in the Photon Series, the new Photon is the ideal bike for a cyclist who is ready to move up to a high-performance frameset, and who wants to experience the legendary Photon ride quality. The new Photon will be available in early 2015 in stock sizes only.

Fast Forward Geometry

The brand new fast forward program finally lets you get the bike of your dreams more affordably and without waiting.
Fast Forward is offered in three tiers. Essentially, the frames get more affordable and have shorter lead times as we go from Tier 1 through to Tier 3.

Fast Forward Logo02

Photon Series

The ultimate balance between technology, innovation, and craftsmanship; these frames represent the tireless work of an elite team of engineers and industrial designers working to create remarkable products that redefine their respective categories.

The secret to the unparalleled ride offered by these frames is Guru’s Quantum Carbon Concept: A unique understanding of the properties inherent to carbon fiber. Using this constant, the tube shapes were engineered to maximize tangential surfaces around the joints and the lay-up was optimized to minimize superfluous material. This quantum approach makes for a superior riding frame that is incredibly light.

In-house production by expert craftsmen allows for incredible flexibility and speed in the iterative process of research and development.

Ride tuned by people who love to ride. The Photon HL (Hyperlight), the Photon R (Race), and the Photon SL (Superlight)
