Designed specifically for professional athletes and for all those riders who are looking for maximum performance, the SL7 is the spearhead of the Carrera podium: weight of the medium size is 890 g. and 97N / mm stiffness in the “free frame” lab test!
It’s clear enough that lightness and stiffness contradict each other and the only way to put them together is by hand selecting the right materials and moulds of the carbon.
How could Carrera achieve their goal? Through the use of EPS technology (Expandable Polystyrene Shell).
Components on frames featured in the images may vary depending on the build.

EPS - Expandable Polystyrene Shell
EPS technology allows an increase in the resistance of carbon used from 5 to 10%, thus leading to being able to obtain a very high coefficient of stiffness (STW). It is used in the processing of carbon inside the tubes, which are thus uniform, more compact and light, for a single structure frame with evident advantages in terms of weight and thickness.
ICRS - Simultaneous Assembly
The exclusive ICRS system created by the PODIUM R & D department, allows the simultaneous assembly of e-shifting and mechanical groups on Carrera frames. This innovative technology guarantees advantages in terms of aerodynamics and improves the appearance of the Carrera.
CUSTOM COLOURS - Italian Style
Carrera are a perfect representation of Italian style in the world, thanks to innovative designs and stunning graphics, which is given an almost maniacal attention. Carrera have always allowed and continue to allow the customisation of colours and graphics, giving each rider the freedom to tailor their travel companion.
