Seven 622 SLX

 

The Seven Cycles 622 SLX  is the culmination of more than two decades of bike building experience, a sculptural blend of titanium and carbon fiber. The carbon fiber makes it light and stiff. The titanium gives it a lively ride quality and a durability that belies its aesthetic appeal. The end product is race ready, but at home on any group or solo ride.

Under the radar: Just like every Seven, the 622 SLX is built from the ground up to each customer’s measurements. This is the apex of custom tailored cycling chic.

Reviews: “So let’s talk ride quality. I’ll be blunt–I haven’t ridden another bike that offered as vibration-free a ride while maintaining a lively, responsive nature. I’ve ridden bikes that were stiffer in overall torsion. I’ve ridden bikes that were stiffer at the bottom bracket, too. But of all the bikes I’ve ridden that were meant to put a pillow over the face of vibration, none did so as effectively as the 622 slx.”

“When the Seven 622SLX arrived in the office, a UK exclusive for Cyclist, we weren’t sure whether to ride it or frame it and hang it on the wall. It’s a thing of beauty. The titanium lugwork is a blend of functionality and art form, as if it has been draped around the carbon.”…. “There were moments on this Seven when I found myself pedaling hard but blissfully unaware of any specific points of contact with the bike. It’s impossible to say it without it sounding cheesy, but it was at times like the bike had disappeared beneath me. It’s not the only occasion I’ve felt this way, but it usually only happens on a bike that I’ve owned and spent months moulding to my own specific needs and dimensions. It’s rare to have one of those ‘moments’ on a test machine.”
