This is undoubtedly one of the lightest cages on the market at only 24g (3k Carbon) / 29.5g (Painted).
The vibrant colors make these the best looking ones too!
That’s the idea behind the Essor Dash. The Dash starts with Essors’ exclusive unidirectional carbon fiber layup process in a symmetrical air foil shape recognized as having an exceptionally low drag coefficient. It permits a shorter spoke length for less drag and a smooth ride. It’s fast, stiff, stable and exceptionally smooth.
The Dash features unidirectional carbon fiber, a scrim layer in the carbon braking surface, new, improved hubs, standard J-bend spokes, and a very attractive price. Roll up to the line on a pair of these, and you’ll command plenty of respect, and quite a few envious stares.
Right now I don’t know of a better price point from a domestic brand.
