Power Meter
Every Spec Crit can be equipped with the optional Stages Cycling crank arm based power meters.  As an amateur or elite level rider, training and racing with a power meter is without a doubt an important upgrade option.

Wheelset
The deep section C50 Full carbon wheel set is our favorite all-rounder with a balance of Ultra-lightweight and advanced wide wheel profile (26mm) aerodynamics. At 50mm deep, it’s light yet still gives significant aero gains over a traditional climbing or box wheel. We couple each set of C50’s with the New Continental GP5000 tires. The tires are perfectly matched to the frontal aero profile of the wheelset, and have some of the lowest rolling resistance of any clincher tire on the planet, with amazing grip and puncture resistance.

Frameset:
The Crit’s advanced truncated tube shapes, slippery fork and seatpost sections, and a fully integrated aero cockpit give you an unmatched aero advantage. You will without a doubt feel the effects. Ask our fit specialist if you are unsure of frame sizing or fit.

    This bike is a tremendous value for what you get! I was looking at a giant and a trek but this is so much bike for the money and I’ve never regreted going this route. I have over 1000 miles on this bike and it’s fast and light and looks super cool! And the customer service is fantastic.

      Thank you Mike for your support. We look forward to hearing of excellent results this year in your Ironman events! Hopefully the Crit will help you put a hurt on your buddies!

    Just got my baby from Josh this month. Excellent customer service folks…seriously and thank you Josh. This baby rides like a gem. I’m loving all aspects from it’s svelte, aero look, it’s ridiculous lightweight (16.2lbs), the built in power meter and the Di2. Best bang for your buck!!!!

    • Josh@spec

      You are very welcome, exactly our goal when building this bike on all accounts! Enjoy Ian.

    I purchased a CritPro X in May this year. So, for the last six months, it has been a great experience every day I get on my bike for a ride. This year, I participated in two major events, “La Etapa” Acapulco and “La Etapa Mexico City” both races organized by the same company that runs the “Tour de France”. As you can expect, the most expensive bicycles are part of these events. During the last race, many curious riders asked me about my bike, they were very impressed and when they asked me about how much I paid for it, they really began to look at the bike carefully. Many, many compliments…!
    DId the 45 miles in both races. Superior ride…!
    GREAT BIKE and GREAT SERVICE
    Thanks Josh…

      Javier, so happy to hear about your travels and exploits on your Crit Pro X. Thanks you for trusting in Spec!

    I have now put just over 1,000 miles on my Crit Pro X, including 200 race miles. I am a larger rider at 185lbs, and the BIG BRAND bike I used to race on, did not hold up as well as my Crit Pro X. This past weekend, was a big test in a 50 mile road race, which included sections of loose chip seal, basically gravel. The stability of the bike in the gravel sections at 30 mph was impressive. Add in rough railroad track crossings at speed, and the bike never wavered. Wheels still true, no creaks or squeaks. This is a serious bike and battle tested in a mixed-surface race.
