It's a dream combination. The marriage of Gates Carbon Belt CenterTrack Drive technology with a Shimano Alfine 11 Internal Hub results in pure magic on the road. Dress it up with 451 wheels and drop bars, and you find pure bliss.

The Silk 11.0 with 451 wheels has been decked out by engineer Rob English with a threadless Chris King headset, Avid disc brakes, Thomsen seat post, FSA Energy cranks, Versa Alfine 11 integrated shifters and Schwalbe Durano 120psi tires.
