Cannondale - Slice Ultegra Di2
$5,200, cannondale.com

In a triathlon, you want a bike that’ll out climb and out-accelerate your competitors, not outweigh them. With the Slice Ultegra Di2 that’s not a problem—it comes in at just 1020g (2.3 pounds, over a pound and a half lighter than some competitor bikes. Aside from having the lightest frame on the market, Cannondale’s tri-bike features Naero Tech seatstays, AeroPlane twisting chainstays, and an Aero SAVE fork to eliminate bumps and keep you comfortable during the ride and ready for the run. The geometry of the Slice Ultegra Di2 is configured from data and thousands of fittings; the seat has a steep angle and shorter cranks to help you get lower in front while keeping your hips open to increase power and additionally improve your transition to running. Not done yet. The Slice offers stable handling thanks to its centered riding position and slack head angle so you can confidently traverse corners, crosswinds, and descents. And the seat tube directs wind over your rear wheel so you’ll experience less drag and pressure from wind packing between the frame and wheel.
