X-LITE CRS / RACE
A PASSION FOR RACING
It’s the last kilometer and you are giving your all. Your speed is as high as your concentration, as every little mistake can be decisive now. It’s good to have a bike that can keep the pace, because now every performance advantage counts twice. When talking about speed, the X-LITE series is our standard. The X-LITE CRS, the twin brother of the X-LITE TEAM, also stands in this tradition. With a frame weight of approx. 920 grams, it offers the same frame design and the same lightning-fast genes as his big brother. Ultra-stiff and with an outstanding performance – a winning bike. Moreover, the X-LITE CRS also features our excellent race fork with a weight of approx. 315 grams and made of 140 carbon layers laid according to a laminate schedule developed in-house. The result is one of the lightest, stiffest and yet most comfortable forks on the market – ready for any performance you can squeeze out of it. There are only a few hundred metres left until the fnish, you see the gap and pull ahead. You already have the victory in the bag.
X-LITE CRS – a place on the podium, please!
Push the limits with the X-LITE CRS STÖLTING Team Replica - whether it is the technical limit, your own limits or the weight limits. 6800 grams UCI-compliant – equipped with high-end parts, you will feel like a rider of a PRO team. This is no wonder given that an extremely successful team also uses this racer on the race tracks: Team Stölting Service Group. Cycling pros like Fabian Wegmann, Linus Gerdemann or Gerald Ciolek rely on the X-LITE CRS – which we offer in an exclusive STÖLTING edition. The Team Replica comes with a High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T30/40 frame and has a weight of approx. 920 grams. Shimano's Dura-Ace 9000 is used for braking and shifting – for many people, this is the world's best mechanical shifting system. A Rotor Inpower 3D crank ensures best power measurement, Ritchey WCS carbon parts represent the bike's hardware and a shock-absorbing FlexLogic seat post, an ergonomic Evo Curve handlebar as well as a C-220 stem will catapult you to the top. The bike's wheels are also pro-like, the DT Swiss RC55 Spline clincher tyres stand out for an aerodynamic design and best Swiss quality! Do it like the pros!
The X-LITE CRS-3000 allows for a perfect start! Based on a top frame, the bike comes with racing components that open up all possibilities. The Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset used really is a secret weapon regarding performance and reliability and what’s more, it is available at an attractive price. It features the same technical innovations as the top groupsets. The beautiful cockpit comes from the company Ritchey, just like the well-designed Ritchey WCS Carbon Monolink FlexLogic seat post. The carbon seat post has a special system to mount a saddle and allows for a precise adjustment of saddle position and angle. Moreover, an extra wide three-bolt saddle clamp reduces the stress for carbon seat stays. The magazine RoadBIKE writes in the issue 04/2015: “Incredibly lightweight, lightning-fast and direct: The Rose impresses road cyclists and offers high comfort on tours – this bike with top features is the clear test winner.”
Enjoy the advantages of an electronic shifting system right from the start – Di2 from the start! Lightning-fast, precise and defined shifting processes as well as free programmability thanks to the included software – the X-LITE CRS-3100 Di2 offers drivetrain technology of tomorrow. Based on the mechanical Shimano Ultegra, the Ultegra Di2 shifting system is only slightly heavier and offers a whole new shifting dimension. Moreover, the bike comes with elegant DT Swiss wheels. The R 20 Dicut stand out for a low weight and top-level technology. The rims are welded and tubeless ready; ultra-stiff New Aero Nail Head spokes offer stability and smooth running – and all this at a weight of a mere 1500 grams per pair. In issue 5/2015, the TOUR magazine chose the X-LITE CRS-3100 Di2 as the test winner with a grade of 1,5 (excellent)! It further states: “The lightest bike tested comes with a Di2 shifting system [...]. The test riders were thrilled by the bike's agile behaviour. The contact points on saddle and handlebar were also highly praised."
Extremely lightweight thanks to High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T30/40 frame and equipped with sophisticated parts: Our X-LITE CRS-4000 moves into the lead! No other than Shimano’s best mechanical road groupset embellishes the bike – the Dura-Ace 9100 – full of technical innovations, beautifully designed and absolutely lightweight. The extremely stiff crank with only four arms surely is just one of the many highlights. The Ritchey cockpit is ultra-light and strong – it combines a low weight with good ergonomics. The Ritchey WCS Evo Curve handlebar is the perfect match to the Ritchey WCS C220 stem. The top handlebar is wing-shaped and allows for a comfortable grip position, which primarily has a positive and energy-saving effect on long climbs. "Thanks to the use of a Dura-Ace groupset and light DT Swiss wheels, the bike only weighs 6.3 kilograms. As a result, the bike is as agile and nippy as a pro bike."
Out of the box and into the race! The X-LITE CRS-4400 offers racing technology par excellence. With this bike you can ride onto the podium! The frame that is only slightly heavier than 900 grams is equipped with carefully selected technology combined with a SRAM Force 22 groupset. The groupset of the American manufacturer of components offers great features and excellent ergonomics, as well as numerous technical highlights. Moreover, the X-LITE CRS-4400 rolls on very attractive wheels from the Swiss company DT Swiss. The R 20 Dicut wheels are lightweight and of highest quality. In addition, they are tubeless ready and offer welded rims as well as extremely stiff New Aero Nail Head spokes. The latter offer stability and smooth running – at a weight of around 1500 grams per pair.
Bella Italia! For all those who do not want to do without the legendary reputation and quality of the world-famous brand Campagnolo, the X-LITE CRS-5000 is just the right choice. This bike comes with a Campagnolo Chorus groupset which is a true classic. Nevertheless, the drivetrain is more modern than ever before and impresses with numerous technical highlights, such as the Ultra-Shift technology. It gives the chain wings, as you can move the chain simultaneously up three sprockets and no less than five sprockets down! The wheels are Italian, too: The Campagnolo Zonda wheels are assembled by hand, tubeless ready and beautifully laced. They offer great torsional and lateral stiffness, as well as the reliability you would expect from Campagnolo wheels.
