Light. Stiff. Classic.
Pronghorn’s latest all-round road racer. Designed for hills, descents and winding roads. Sporty geometry, increased stiffness and very low weight. An optimal high-modulus carbon mix provides pure and uncompromising racing qualities.
”SL is short for Super Light. The frame weighs in at only 780 grams and this is our take on a very light and classic road bike. Fitted with light climbing wheels and a high-end groupset this bike comes well below the UCI weight limit of 6,8 kilos.”
Kenneth Holm Lildholdt, CEO and co-owner
Pronghorn's Road SL is a dedicated and purebred road racing bike developed with a focus on both top speeds, acceleration and high average speeds on longer rides. The low weight makes this bike the obvious choice for hilly and mountainous terrain. The frame is beautiful and has comfort built into both the rear frame and the fork to prevent rider fatigue from frame vibrations.
The SL is slightly different compared to our Aero model. The head tube is a little bit taller, the top tube somewhat longer and the seat tube angle is not quite as steep and aggressive. This means that the handlebars are positioned a little bit higher and further towards the front. Also, the rider is not positioned directly over the bottom bracket compared to what is normal for an aero bike. This makes for a more comfortable riding position.
Road SL properties
Søren Veje Kristensen, CEO and co-owner
The Road SL frame is divided into power zones, which provide ideal power transfer from the rider and efficient shock absorption from the surface. The power zones make for an efficient power transfer while at the same time enhancing rider endurance on longer rides.
The Road SL only comes with electronic groupsets. This makes complete brake cable integration possible on all models. Also, all models come with our popular carbon fibre Aero Racebar.
These upgrades come installed with the bike at delivery. You only pay the additional price for the upgrade. Extra options are not sold separately.

Pronghorn’s Carbon Road SL is a top-of-the-line road bike made from high-quality carbon fibre from Japanese manufacturer Toray. This is a lightweight frame with lots of bottom bracket and head tube stiffness – as well as comfort built into the seat stays and the seat post. All models are built around our top frame and we don’t use a cheaper carbon mix on our entry-level models. Pronghorn bikes are made for speed.
How many types of road bikes do you offer?
We offer three types: The Road Classic, the Road Aero and the Road SL.
What is the difference between these three types of road bikes?
The Aero is more aerodynamic and was made for speed. It cuts through the wind as it quickly accelerates to impressive speeds where it stays effortlessly for as long as it takes. Our Aero model is slightly less extreme in its aero design than many other bikes within this category. This makes the Pronghorn Aero disc the ideal blend between aerodynamics and rider comfort.
Our Classic Disc is more agile and easier to maneuver in groups and pelotons.
It is ideal for mountains and hills, on both climbs and descents.
The SL is the lightest road bike in our line-up and sports a classic design perfectly suited for the rider who values handling characteristics that favour climbs and descents as well as beautiful looks.
Do you offer frames of different carbon qualities?
No. We only use the finest carbon fibre quality within each model range. In other words, we do not use cheaper frame materials on our entry-level bikes. We use carbon fibre from Japanese manufacturer Toray (T-700 and T-800) in a specific compound or mix that gives us the properties we aim for.
What about the geometry?
Both models feature relatively aggressive geometries which gives the rider a pleasant and original, purebred riding experience. Normally, we advice the more comfort-oriented riders to install more spacers under the stem. We find that most riders are able to dial in an optimal riding position on the various road models using only a few number of spacers.
Which components do you offer on your road bikes?
Groupsets from Shimano and SRAM, wheels from DTSWISS as well as our own label, Carbon Racing. Carbon Racing also produces our integrated aero bars and seat posts.
Which chainring sizes are used on the bikes?
Our Aero Road comes with the so-called semi-compact setup. The road models come with a more climbing-friendly compact configuration. The specific number of chainring teeth vary between SRAM and Shimano.
Do the bikes come with integrated cable routing?
All cables are integrated. For the Aero Disc an additional option of completely hidden cables under the handlebars is available. This is not available on the Carbon Disc models.
Is it possible to install a power meter bottom bracket?
Yes. It is possible to purchase a bottom bracket power meter via our customer service. You only pay the additional cost.
Do you offer aluminium road bikes?
No. We do not manufacture aluminium road bikes. We find that the riding characteristics are not ideal due to the lack of shock absorption capabilities of this material.
Do you offer any rim brake models?
No. We discontinued rim brake bikes in 2019 due to a very limited customer interest in rim brake models.
Are Pronghorn bikes Danish?
Our bikes are designed and developed in Denmark. In close cooperation with our manufacturers in the Far East. We assemble all bikes in Denmark.
Which colors are available?
By default, the bikes are available in black, red and silver. However, we offer custom colours through our custom colour program.
Is it possible to make changes to the component configurations?
Yes. Contact us if you want to modify the component setup or the wheelset configuration. As for the models equipped with carbon wheels it is possible to choose 38 mm instead of 50 mm if you want to reduce the bike’s wind sensitivity.
Will I be able to make changes to the handlebar and stem setup?
Yes. You can specify the dimensions of the stem and the handlebars. We assemble the bikes according to your specifications.
How do I modify the bike specifications
Contact our customer service if you want to make changes to the bike setup. Or you can make a note of this in the comment box at our webshop checkout.
