Product Description

2014 Carolina Cyclocross Frame
The 2014 Carolina

The 2014 Carolina cyclocross frame is second of the newest editions of frames for the ever growing 'Cross discipline from Irish. We completely went a different direction with this frame than with the Chu Chulainn and we're sure you're going to love the additional sections you've got. Based on the design of the Original Chu Chulainn (2008), the new Carolina is more than just a rebuild of the original Chu, it features increased strength and rigidity while maintaining the longer top tube so many sought after. Now updated with both disc and cantilever options and a tapered head tube, the Carolina is destined to pick up on the successes of it's fore bearers.

The Carolina's monocoque carbon fiber frame uses a proprietary carbon lay up that combined both high and medium modulus fibers tied to a combination of EPS and bagged construction that allows us the distinctive split Y-stay rear end. This has produced not only a more rigid frame but a more comfortable frame as well allowing us to achieve the goal of a compliant yet powerful frame.

The front end receives equal care in it's design improving off our original specifications. We took the best ideas from our earlier spec'd Alpha Q forks and incorporated them into our latest forks giving you the same mud shedding openness you've come to expect which also giving you the safety and comfort you demand. The fork is 100% carbon now and features our "relief wave" design allowing compliance and strength concurrently - the ongoing theme of our newest design.

The frame weighs in at 1050g for the 55cm frameset.

While the debate rages between traditionalists imploring the use of Cantis, we've also got on board with the disc revolution as the technology only seems to get better. Instead of offering only one configuration, we now offer both disc and canti for your choosing. Both the front and rear end require the use of a 160mm rotors. For both canti and disc frames, the rear triangle and fort are configured to allow you to run anything from a 25c to 38c tire.

The frame is available as a frame set or complete bike inclusive of build packages from Shimano, Campagnolo/FSA, and Sram. It is offered in Artic White, Orange/Matte Black and Matte Black. All frames feature a 1.125 to 1.5 steer tube and BSA bottom bracket. Sizes available are 51,53,55 and 57. When sizing, pay close attention to the top tube length and head tubes as they are the key factors in any cyclocross frame. To inquire on purchasing a frame or completely built package, contact us at info@irishcycles.com. We will direct you to a local shop that can provide you assistance or, if you're in the Carolinas, work to meet you in person. In those cases we cannot do either, we will work thru extensive phone consulatation to make sure your fit and requirements are met. Please note: all frame or complete bicycle purchases will require a phone consultation in order to ensure the right fit and specifications for you.
