AeroCat Releases the R505 Carbon-fiber Road Bike

January 29, 2009

AeroCat LLC, an Indiana based high performance bicycle manufacturer, is pleased to announce the availability of their new R505 carbon fiber road bike. The new AeroCat model is a spin-off of the popular ACR500 frameset that launched the company into the high-end bicycle market just less than two years ago. "The ACR500 has been an incredible success enabling our entrance into the market," said company President Dave Poole. "Based on feedback from our customers, dealers, and elite team partners, we decided to launch a naked version and call it the R505. The original market reaction has been very positive as we have generated a significant backlog of orders for this product and several elite cyclists have committed to racing this bike for the 2009 road season," stated Poole. Featuring a 3K carbon fiber monocoque frame construction, the R505 is engineered to be lightweight, comfortable, and provide extremely efficient power transfer with the re-enforced bottom bracket area design. The matte carbon finish with white and silver accents provides a simple yet attractive and streamlined appearance that can mesh with nearly any choice of clothing making it ideal for cycling teams and clubs.
