Lightweight hydroformed aluminium frame and carbon fork for precise race handling
Endurance geometry suited to the demands of a long ride
Full Shimano Tiagra 20 speed for precise shifting over varied terrain
Durable wheelset, with sealed bearing hubs and Schwalbe tyres for cornering confidence
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.
The RSP AC 2.0 wheels have sealed bearings which are more durable than standard alternatives as they are kept enclosed to keep them away from dirt, water and grease. Schwalbe Lugano tyres are fast rolling and grippy; perfectly selected for the type of riding this bike was designed for with the added bonus of providing superior puncture protection capabilities. The Criterium Sport includes a full Shimano Tiagra 4700 groupset providing top level performance in every area at a great price. Shimano have passed down technologies from their most expensive ranges into this new groupset to provide; improved braking, faster shifting, stiff 4-arm crank and stealthy cable routing under the bar tape.
