Fairlight Cycles: Strael 3.0 With New Di2 Dura-Ace R9200 12-Speed

The Fairlight Cycles Strael 3.0 is quite the looker on its own but when you add in the all-new Di2 Dura-Ace R9200 12-speed group to the build kit, it elevates the Strael 3.0 even more. Yesterday, Shimano announced the new Ultegra and Dura-Ace groups, with all-new Di2 tech, crisper shifting, better braking, and more.

Fairlight Cycles sent over this build, laced out with these new Dura-Ace parts, so we decided to share the build photos with you. Check out all the details below and see more on the new Ultegra and Dura-Ace at Shimano.

Fairlight’s New Strael 3.0 All Road

Fairlight’s frames are well detailed and designed for the task at hand. The new Strael 3.0 is their “all season” road bike, made from Reynolds tubing and with clearance for a 36mm tire. The Strael comes in three colors now, with color-matched forks and plenty of provisions to keep you rolling on your long rides.

Here is what is new on the Strael 3.0:
-Clearance for 36mm (width as measured) tyres.
-New Reynolds 853 downtube with revised butting profile.
-New Reynolds 725 chainstays with custom forming and shaping that is unlike anything you’ve seen on a steel frame.
-New size specific top tube and seat stays for sizes 61R and 61T. Designed for bigger, stronger riders.
-New Bentley x Fairlight Mk.2 dropouts.
-New Anraed 3.0 fork with internal dynamo routing and improved tyre clearance.
-3rd bottle mount for endurance riding and full frame bags.
-New full dynamo integration for running rear lights.
-New solar pattern graphics.
-Colour matched fork as standard.

the Fairlight Secan MKii

The Secan MKii and Faran MKii sit together as a family of products as they share many of the same design features including tire clearance, tube shaping, and dynamo integration. Both models are extremely versatile and they can cover everything from commuting to self-sufficient touring. Whereas the recently launched Faran MKii is a dedicated off-road tourer, the Secan MKii is an all-capable gravel bike.

The Secan MKii features custom-shaped and butted Renolds tubing: 853 DZB down tube, 853 seat tube, 853 top tube, and a 631 CNC’d oversized head tube. Both the Secan MKii and the Faran MKii utilize 14mm stays.

Think of the Secan as a more robust off-road machine with an oversized head tube, larger tubing, but the same fat tire (68mm) clearance as the Faran. Both have integrated dynamo setups, Fairlight’s signature dropouts/brake mount design, and beautiful paint jobs.

The Fairlight Faran MKII Touring Bike

The Faran 2.0 is the latest from the UK builders Fairlight. It’s a multi-purpose tourer, built with custom-specified Reynolds tubing, like a Reynolds 631 DZB downtube, and 631 front triangle, with a 37mm 4130 head tube and stays, with 68mm of chainstay clearance which will fit either a 700 or 27.5 wheel. That’s big enough to fit a 27.5 x 2.4” Continental X-King Tyre on Hope XC rims. These bikes have all the fixins to make them an ally on randonneuring events, S24O, or even a full-on tour. Fairlight has pulled together an extensive product catalog on the features of the Faran MKII, which I highly suggest checking out. It’s not often a bicycle manufacturer goes to these lengths describing their new product.

A £500.00 lands you a deposit (£899 frameset retail) for a Faran MKII and the queue is open for business, with the first batch shipping in September/October, with the colors to be announced shortly so head to Fairlight if you like what you see!
