The Crit (C-Competition level, R-Race level) is equipped with fully electronic shifting utilizing the advanced Shimano Ultegra and Dura Ace Di2 Groupsets. The Long Lasting battery charges in 1.5 hours or less, and lasts approximately 1250+ miles to a charge. With Bluetooth capability, your Crit Di2 can transmit battery status, gear selection, auto shifting notifications and more through your Favorite Stages, Garmin, Wahoo and other head units. Maintenace free shifting (no cables to wear) and fast precise shifting with low hand fatigue is the real value in upgrading to the Di2 Electronic shifting.

This is a great way to compare against a bike that you know fits well, and gain insight into how aggressive of a position you can achieve looking at head-tube length etc. If you need a hand deciphering this mess of numbers, contact us!

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.
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 high performance Continental GP4000S II tires. The tires are perfectly matched to the frontal aero profile of the C50 wheelset, making this an air slicing combo.
The Crit’s advanced truncated tube shapes, slippery fork and seatpost sections, and a fully integrated aero cockpit give you gives you all of the gains, and aesthetics expected in a premium Aero road bike. You will without a doubt feel the effects. Please ask if you are unsure of frame sizing or fit after looking at our charts.
