Hi Guys,

Does anyone have any rough idea on how a Helium SL with Shimano C24 wheels and ultegra 6800 groupset would perform on a descent? I'm worried if it might be too light for handling.

I would appreciate if you could share any thoughts on this. Thank you very much.

Gravity will ensure you stay on the bike and the bike on the road just fine. Lighter bikes are actually safer as they go down slower than heavier bikes. Sounds like a very good build.

@Sharkley1981 My #1 bike is a 2013 Helium SL, and while it performs exceedingly poorly on descents I can pretty much assure you that this is down to the rider, not the bike.

In any case I love mine. Welcome to the team!
