Hmmm...what did they do with the thru-axles?
Threads just don't go all the way through and they kept it closed, they'll probably claim an aero advantage but in reality, it just looks nicer/cleaner.

I hope they somehow managed to still keep threaded part that the thru axle threads onto as a replaceable part. I can see how that can get worn out time; especially on the rear if you mount the bike on and off the trainer regularly.

To me, looks like the old generation, only minor changes...

But the old generation looks like new generation for most other manufacturers?

I wonder where bikes go next?

Only the "lower" tier seems to be visible for now
7.7kg for the top tier carbon with Force AXS and shallow wheels? Hmmmmmm... Maybe I'm wrong, but that seems like it's heavy. Emonda equivalent (SLR7) would be fairly lighter and have deeper wheels.. Heck even the Emonda SL7 with lower tier carbon and cheap components is only some 250g heavier than that.
SLR01 Three is 7.43kg in a 56.

6.57kg for top Red AXS model.
SL7 S-Works - 6.59kg
OPEN U.P.P.E.R. - 6.76kg

Comfort and versatility are the biggest trends I foresee to continue. Tire clearance, "compliance/shocks", and probably more "aero improvements". There is no reason why a fast/aero bike shouldn't be able to handle wide tires (which limits the need for heavy shocks).
Open WI.DE (2019) - 8.7kg
Specialized Shiv TT Disc (2020) - 7.9kg
Specialized SW Æthos (2021) 6.5kg
Trek Émonda SLR9 (2021) 7.3kg
Specialized SW Crux (2022) 7.9kg

*all weights are race ready bikes, large frame size.

That would be very impressive. The SLR01 Three is either UDI2 or Force AXS so i wonder what the frame weight is. The current Force model is 7.6kg.

SLR is a "lower" version, right?

Yep. I've read somewhere that the 01 series is called 'Elite'.

Yes, the SLR01 "Premium Carbon with Aerocore Design" (One, Two, Three, Four) are the higher grade carbon module bikes.

I would say so. In the promotional images with the top range one, we can see the model name in the downtube as SLR_01

7.7 (sans pedals) for AXS force, cheap wheels and lower end carbon is pretty good. 6.7ish is certainly possible for high end version.

This is one of the 2 bikes on my shortlist. But if the weights are accurate. Damn this thing is heavy. I am just looking for a badass all-rounder. I have a light Zero7 for climbing and it has okay aero. For this purchase, I want fewer compromises and am willing to shell out for it. Price is very low on my list of priorities for this purchase. Just show me the AWESOMENESS.
