Pro Bike: James Oram’s Axeon Cipollini RB800

Published on November 7th 2015


Axeon rider James Oram has been New Zealand’s under-23 national road and time trial champion, and this the Cipollini RB800 road bike he rode during the 2015 season. Click here to subscribe to GCN: All Cipollini carbon frames are handmade in Pisa, Italy. The Axeon team, managed by Axel Merckx, has a close relationship with SRAM, and was instrumental in its development of the wireless eTap drivetrain. That relationship means the team also rides ZIpp wheels — in this case, the 404 Firestrike tubular wheelset — as well as Zipp Service Course SL handlebar and stem, and a 53-39 Quarq power crank. At the USA Pro Challenge, Oram used an 11-28 cassette. Other highlights include Selle Italia saddle, Speedplay pedals, Specialized tires, and Tacx water bottle cages.
