X-LITE CW / TRIATHLON
The X-LITE series represents the essence of cycle racing. The bike with the name affix CW is brand-new – it adds something more: The newly designed frame is aerodynamically shaped and extremely performance-oriented. All signs point towards an attack, the X-LITE CW wants to be in the lead, to break away, to accelerate fully. It is made for cyclists who need maximum aerodynamics for their active style of riding. The shape of the frame provides an excellent Cd value, the seat tube is perfectly adapted to the rear wheel. Moreover, the bottle cage is aerodynamically integrated to reduce air turbulence to a minimum. Here, it’s all about performance. A tapered 11/8” to 1.5” head tube offers outstanding stiffness values in spite of its aerodynamic shape; a 180° flippable seat post allows for a seating angle of over 76° - which is highly appreciated by time trialists. Preferences with regard to the braking system can also be realised: whether you prefer a Direct Mount rim brake or the new Flat Mount discs – the choice is huge. If best aerodynamics and performance are required, you won’t want to ride any other road bike!
X-LITE CW – the stage is yours!
Especially when fighting against the time, an aerodynamic frame concept can give you the decisive advantage. And in order to make sure that you can fully benefit from this advantage, we have specially adapted the X-LITE CW TRI to triathlon use. Based on our X-LITE CW with its aerodynamic frame and sophisticated Ultegra-6800 components, the model with the name affix TRI comes with a modern, high-performance PROFILE 24/Twentyfour AL wheelset. Thanks to a wide rim, this wheelset is perfect for all cyclists who rely on high profile wheels in competitions. In addition, the bike features the Profile Design Aeria T4 Aluminium triathlon bar that helps support an aerodynamic riding position while being very comfortable and perfectly adaptable to your needs. When flipping the seat post by 180°, you get a sitting angle of 76° - and with that a riding position triathletes appreciate.
The X-LITE CW-4000 is our ultimate racer – a spectacular vehicle for spectacular races. Perfectly specced with the Dura-Ace 9100 top groupset by Shimano with beautiful technical highlights such as Direct Mount standard. The Cosmic Pro Carbon WTS wheelset from the company Mavic is also great, as they offer the perfect combination of aerodynamics and weight. Moreover, the system wheels stand out for specially lightweight spokes and smooth-running hubs. This wheelset is not only an eye-catcher but also a top performer! The ROSE Carbon Flip Flop seat post is quickly turned by 180° to offer a seating angle of 76° and also predestines the X-LITE CW-4000 to also do triathlons.
Ride aerodynamically, shift electronically – the X-LITE CW-4100 Di2 offers concentrated racing expertise! Here, we have used all possible measures to make the bike even more powerful and faster. The sophisticated carbon aero frame comes with a special shape to allow for even higher speeds. In combination with the exclusive shifting system of the bike, the place on the podium is a mere formality. Shimano's Dura-Ace 9150 is not only eye-catching, but also offers some technical features no other groupset in the world offers. This includes e.g. the Synchro-Shift technology. This technology was originally used in the mountain bike sector and allows you to operate rear and front derailleur with a single shifter. There is no faster or more comfortable way – the X-LITE CW-4100 Di2 is our absolute high-end aero racer!
Experience the fascination of cycle racing first-hand with the X-LITE CW-8800. This racing machine is extremely powerful, suitable for versatile use and will give your opponents shivers. In order to get the maximum out of the aerodynamic carbon frame, we have given the X-LITE CW-8800 an impressive groupset. The RAM Red 22 likes to swim against the current and is specced with technical highlights. It not only offers 11-speed shifting performance, but also proven RED ergonomics including lever reach adjustment and improved braking power for more control - especially in tricky situations. The high-end Cosmic Pro Carbon WTS wheels by Macic should also be mentioned. In combination with Mavic Yskion Pro Grip Link / Power Link tyres, they offer high speed for on the road!
Our aero racer now offers a totally new shifting experience! Electronic, wireless - incredibly good! Everybody is talking about wireless transmission technology and this technology now continues its success story on bikes. Instead of Bowden cables, a wireless connection is used to precisely, quickly and silently control front and rear derailleur. Everything is in your hands: The configuration of the shifting system as well as a completely newly devloped shift/brake lever. It comes with a new shift logic inspired by Formula 1 race cars. In this way, cyclist and bike form one unit, the shifting process is already over before you even know it. Thanks to the Reach-Adjust technology, you can perfectly adapt the lever reach to your personal preferences. Anti-slip ErgoBlade carbon levers and large SRAM eTap shift buttons ensure you will always have full control over your bike and the situation.
