Fast enough to race, comfortable enough to ride all day; the Criterium has been built for comfort over distance.
The Criterium’s double butted hydroformed aluminium frame has been specifically designed to be exceptionally lightweight and adopts RE2P* frame geometry which pushes the rider’s weight backwards to reduce pressure and fatigue on the arms to increase comfort on longer rides. Lightweight Aluminium A-head stem and handlebars provide robustness and strength and the micro adjust seatpost helps you to achieve that perfect riding position right down to the last detail.
The carbon fork with tapered Aluminium steerer provides excellent shock absorption properties all whilst supporting the front end of the bike to provide firm, smooth handling. The frame is complimented by internal cable routing to protect against the elements and make your bike look sleek, uncluttered and professional.
Kenda Kontender tyres are fast rolling and grippy; perfectly selected for the type of riding this bike was designed for. Plus, the Shimano Claris 16 Speed gearing offers reliable shifting to get you up and down hills at speed.
