The warm, strong, chinook winds are a trademark of the Colorado Rockies, home to BLUE Competition Cycles. The latest BLUE performance bike, the CHINOOK, is an aero, wind-cheating, speed machine.
Aerodynamics is optimized throughout the Chinook. A larger headtube accommodates its fully internal cable routing. Completely hidden from sight (and the wind) all shifting and brake cables run through the handlebars and stem directly into the frame.
Aero is cool but stiffness and responsiveness are also key elements of a true race bike. These characteristics are enhanced through use of a larger 1.5” top and bottom headtube. The top tube meets the wider headtube for added strength but narrows to mesh nicely with the aero seat tube. This design cuts weight while improving aerodynamics.
The frameset is constructed of high-strength Toray T800 an aircraft grade carbon-fiber proven through the test of time in high-end bicycles. Using BLUEAero design and engineering the tube shape, carbon selection, and carbon layup results in a lightweight, aerodynamic, race-ready machine.
Chinook takes carbon frame engineering to new heights from its teardrop aero seat tube to uniquely shaped top and down tubes. Its seat stays are lowered to maintain ride compliance and comfort all while seamlessly meeting the concave seat tube which hugs the rear wheel to reduce air drag.

Should you want to switch out a few things, go to Customize My Ride. Customizations include swapping wheels, adding a power meter, upgrading to integrated bar/stem even selecting your preferred crank arm length and bar tape color.
