The Van Rysel EDR CF 105 Disc is part of the Decathlon brand’s new endurance line-up, but don"t go thinking that it has some kind of relaxed, upright, soft riding style about it. This xe đạp still focuses on performance, and thanks lớn some well-sorted geometry you over up with a machine that can be ridden hard and fast regardless of your skill level.

EDR stands for EnDuRance, but I"m going khổng lồ say that it sits very much on the boundary of what most people would expect an endurance bike to be. With its riding position và performance from the frame and fork, it"d put some brands" race machines to lớn shame.

Ride

I"ll go into the full geometry in a bit, but it"s safe lớn say that Van Rysel has kept this xe đạp very much on the aggressive side of things when it comes to lớn the numbers.

First up, the angles are relatively steep và the wheelbase has been kept lớn well below a metre which keeps things nimble và reactive. The shortish head tube also gives stack và reach figures with a ratio of 1.41 (size medium) which is very much at the racy kết thúc of the scale. Most endurance bikes are around the 1.55 mark.

The balance of tube lengths meant that I could achieve a decent aero position on the EDR thanks to lớn a plentiful drop in height from the seatpost to the handlebar, without ever actually feeling like I was having to stretch too much.

Even in the drops I felt comfortable, & that means efficiency.

The handling is quick but not over the top, so when I"m barrelling downhill in the drops, the Van Rysel never feels out of control, or lượt thích it is dictating you through the bends when the 10kiem.vn surface or camber isn"t perfect.

The stiff frame và fork provide plenty of feedback without 10kiem.vn vibration or harshness muting the signals, which I found gave me plenty of confidence to push on và find the EDR"s handling limits.

Thanks lớn that hint of neutrality in the handling, you find the edge of those limits progressively rather than lượt thích a slap in the face as the steering bites back.

All of this, along with the position, means the EDR isn"t a difficult xe đạp to ride fast.

For a frameset with such high levels of stiffness, the ride quality is good. It"s not the most supple I"ve ridden, but it"s never a xe đạp I"d consider uncomfortable. It"s a performance 10kiem.vn xe đạp after all – a bit of bouncing around on crappy tarmac is par for the course.

The frame and fork will take up khổng lồ 30mm tyres, so if you want to lớn bring in a bit more cushioning you can.

With a lightweight phối of deep-section carbon chạy thử wheels fitted the EDR really showed what it could vị when not hindered by heavy wheels, and the performance was very impressive indeed.

Made from high modulus carbon fibre, this medium kích thước frame has a claimed weight of just 890g, according to Van Rysel, and it comes with a confidence-boosting five-year warranty too. The full-carbon fork comes with a two-year warranty.

The EDR"s design follows a current trend of oversized head and down tube with a large bottom bracket junction incorporating PF86 internal bearing cups.
