We push ourselves harder so that you can ride fUrther
After years of producing high-performance race and triathlon bikes, we have created a new line of endurance bikes designed to thrill all serious cyclists, including the most demanding endurance riders.
We used our extensive knowledge of race bike geometry to craft an innovative new mold specifically for Krypton line. The new layout offers a stable and comfortable ride with a relaxed rider position while keeping true to our performance heritage.
From tube shapes to carbon layups, both frames and forks were designed and optimized for better vibration absorption, aerodynamics, and pedaling efficiency, guaranteeing performance and comfort on even the longest of rides on the roughest of roads
Endurance vs Race Geometry
We used our extensive history of developing race bikes such as the Gallium Pro to design the geometry for the new Krypton. The result is a bike with an optimal balance of comfort and performance.
We didn’t simply change the existing race geometry for this new line, instead, we carried over key aspects and constructed something completely unique.
OPTIMAL Fit OPTION
The 15 mm center cap of our 3D system offers the optimal riding position with a more relaxed fit than our traditional race bikes. The alternative 3D options (0 mm and 30 mm) allow riders the choice of a more aggressive or an even more relax position. As always, all frame sizes are fine-tuned to optimize the rider’s position.
We increased the overall stability of the bike by giving it a slacker headtube, with the slightly increased trail of endurance geometry to balance its high-speed stability and racy feel.
The overall result: bikes with an unequaled level of comfort and stability that will perform superbly on the longest rides, whatever the road surface.
BB drop revisited
For increased stability, we reworked our bottom bracket drop to optimally suspend the rider within the two wheels creating a low centre of gravity. We also wanted to provide added stand over clearance for smaller riders.
Wheelbase and fork rake
The new endurance line was designed with a longer wheelbase, which offers more flex between the axles, thus dampening road obstacles. However, it is shorter than the average endurance bike so it will still be reactive and agile.
Additionally, we increased the fork rake or offset for a more comfortable front-end.
• NEW ENDURANCE GEOMETRY
We didn’t simply change the existing race geometry for this new bike, instead, we carried over key aspects and constructed something completely unique.
• TOPOLOGICAL COMPLIANCE SYSTEM
Performance grade carbon monocoque frame and fork concept that offers exceptional vertical compliance and reacts positively to road-induced vibrations while remaining impervious to lateral movement, thus ensuring maximum pedaling efficiency for optimal performance.
• ENDURANCE SPECIFIC FORK DESIGN
Radical shape optimized for best balance of vibration absorption and control.
Aerodynamically efficient frame and fork designs for better performance and riding pleasure.
• FLAT MOUNT DISC BRAKES FOR 140 OR 160MM ROTORS
When using fenders, 140mm rear brake rotor is recommended.
• COMPATIBLE WITH ALL ROAD CASSETTES
Including junior cassettes with a 14-28 range.
• UP TO 32MM (28MM WITH FENDERS) TIRE CLEARANCE
For maximum comfort on any road surface.
• TDS-C SEATPOST
Easy-to-use, offers compliance and comfort.
• 3D+ SYSTEM
An essential characteristic of the Krypton CS frame design is the fully integrated 3D+ system. It delivers all the handling and stiffness benefits of the original 3D system in a streamlined version that merges seamlessly with the frame. It offers 3 head tube extension heights for every frame size: 0mm, 15mm and 30mm.
• DT SWISS TYPE 12MM THRU-AXLE
Clean, simple, light and sturdy.
• INLAID CHAINSUCK PROTECTOR
Protection of the carbon chainstay against wear from the chain’s movement.
