Based in Chattanooga, TN, American Bicycle Group (ABG) manufactures three bike brands—Quintana Roo (QR) triathlon and road bikes, OBED carbon all-road, gravel and mountain bikes, and Litespeed (LS) titanium road, gravel and mountain bikes.

Quintana Roo, founded over 36 years ago, has “earned a place in the top three triathlon brands by market share in the Americas and a Top 10 placement in the Ironman World Championships bike count for two decades,” said ABG.

The Quintana Roo’s V-PRi is the latest generation in the brand’s multisport bike line. Developed with its engineers and featuring input during prototype testing from the company’s ambassador athletes, Quintana improved the aerodynamics of the V-PRi aerodynamics with deeper aero cross sections. The model includes Quintana Roo’s first integrated cockpit, internal hydration and nutrition storage, exhibits weight savings, and a high level of packability for traveling triathletes.

V-PRi’s new FuelBay storage allows athletes to carry nutrition and hydration inside the frame, maintaining the frame’s aerodynamic lines without bags and bottles. FuelBay hydration is easy to refill on the fly, and FuelBay nutrition storage allows six gels in the top tube.

The V-PRi frame and fork each feature deep aero cross sections, including a cowling shielding the front disc brake caliper on the fork. While several shapes change throughout, the V-PRi frame maintains QR aerodynamic elements, including the LEA.2 Leading Edge Absent non-drive side chainstay, and Shift offset downtube that diverts airflow onto the cleaner non-drive side chainstay.

The new Intelligent Integration Cockpit (IIC) featured on the V-PRi transitions to the frame at the headtube, delivering clean airflow from the cockpit to the frame. The IIC features stack rise options from 30mm to 120mm above the base bar in 5mm increments, with pad placement options, extension length and angle options, each allowing precise fit adjustment in a lightweight carbon fiber form.

Wind tunnel testing at 24mph across a full yaw sweep from -15 to 15 degrees saves an average of 6.2 watts compared to its predecessor.

At 19.32 pounds in its lightest trim (Stealth paint, outfitted with Sram Red 1X eTap AXS and Zipp Firecrest NSW 454/858 wheels), the V-PRi is among the lightest triathlon bike on the market.

Available as a complete bike, athletes ordering bikes online can select between Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 components, with a Stages dual-sided power meter, or Sram Red eTap AXS 1X components (with Quarq’s RED AXS power meter) and the option of either DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut (62mm/80mm) or Zipp Firecrest NSW 454/858 wheelsets. Both options feature watt-saving CeramicSpeed OSPW and bottom bracket upgrades.

The V-PRi is available in Small, Medium and Large.
