The G5 debuted at the Tour de France
and made quite the impression on the race, spending eight days in
yellow along the roads of France. It wasn’t just the peloton who were
impressed though, as the G5 heralded leaps in carbon frame technology
and design. Using advanced molding techniques and tubing shapes, the G5
is one of the most highly regarded bikes in the world, setting
benchmarks for light weight, stiffness and ride performance. Small
details add up, which is why the G5 uses one-piece carbon dropouts,
slotted carbon cable guides, and a full carbon front derailleur mount.
Though it’s hard to improve upon such a legacy, we did just that.
For 2012, the G5 receives a new carbon fiber bottom bracket, making the
G5 a 100% full carbon structure allowing us to further reduce weight
while increasing stiffness. In addition, we’ve refined the world’s most
cutting edge fork design even further with a carbon integrated crown
race. The result is a stronger front end, while further reducing total
system weight. All of these details create an increase in performance
that is noticeable from the very first pedal stroke. Attention to
detail is what sets BH apart from the rest of the pack and the G5
showcases that obsession.
