In its inaugural back in 2014 Sebastian Kienle took the Kona title on the Plasma 5. Since then, countless Ironman and TT victories followed. The special edition 2018 race season frame set will be available to purchase for the first time.



The Plasma 5 was designed to enable an aerodynamic fusion between rider and bike. With an aerodynamic frame design that takes into consideration the interaction between a moving rider and the bike, the plasma 5 takes extra steps to make bike and rider one. It has been developed to match the needs of triathletes and cyclists alike. While a wide range of adjustability and a modular stem/bar concept ensures that the position requirements of both triathletes and cyclists are sufficiently covered with the same bike, triathletes benefit from a sophisticated storage system. With the exception of the triathlon-specific storage box and an Aero Drink bottle, the Plasma 5 is fully UCI-compliant and can be used in competitions for both sports without restrictions.
