There are plenty of gorgeous carbon bikes out there. True. There are, however, far fewer gorgeous carbon bikes out there that you’d also want to ride all day long. The Century 6 C is at the top of that very short list.
Our hand-built carbon frame features stiff bottom bracket and head tube junctions, as well as front and rear thru-axles — it’s a recipe for precise handling. Our carefully sculpted seat stays and exacting carbon lay-up, however, also create just the right amount of compliance. The end result is a bike that leaps forward when you put the least effort into the cranks, yet doesn’t rattle or exhaust you when you’re hours into a ride.
Our premium model features equally impressive components — Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Ultegra 2×11 drivetrain share billing with HED’s excellent Flanders wheelset.
In a world of harsh and jittery “super bikes,” the Century 6 C is in a comfortable league of its own.
Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.
