With NeilPryde's long history working with carbon in the windsurfing world, it isn't surprising that the 2016 Nazare 2 Road Frameset comes with claims of wind-slicing aerodynamics, responsive handling, and an impeccably balanced ride. It's constructed from NeilPryde's C6. 9 uni-directional, high-modulus carbon fiber, which is the highest grade carbon the company feels is appropriate for constructing bicycles. As a result of this construction, the Nazare 2 frame weighs in at a claimed 920 grams (for the 56cm size), placing it firmly amongst the lightest of the aerodynamic road category. NeilPryde fashions the Nazare 2's tubing for optimal aerodynamic efficiency across a wide range of yaw angles rather than just straight headwinds in a tunnel, which translates to a fast, stable ride in variable air movement you'll encounter in real-world conditions. While the tubing shape varies slightly across the frame to manage airflow, much of the frame features NeilPryde's Extended Kamm design, which essentially is a chopped off NACA foil shape similar to that found in other top-end aerodynamic road options. Up front the Nazare 2's carbon fiber fork features a bladed shape for an extra dose of wind-slicing prowess. In place of a traditionally mounted rear brake, the Nazare 2 tucks the brake caliper out of the wind behind the bottom bracket, and both it and the front brake are direct-mount. Keeping up with the times, the Nazare 2 features a Di2 battery mount and internal cable routing compatible with both electronic and mechanical systems. As a final touch it gets an integrated seat post clamp for clean lines and easy adjustment.
