Frame: Maximum stiffness with a fantastically low frame weight, but still comfortable - that's the remarkable achievement of the new Elite C:68 frame. It's all down to its next generation carbon frame construction, with a fully revised design using the latest carbon technology and Advanced Twin Mould manufacturing. All the must-have features are here: tapered head tube with inegrated carbon bearing shells, PressFit bottom bracket shell, X-12 axle and internal cable routing. By positioning the rear disc brake mount on the chainstays we managed to scale down the seatstay diameter, increasing comfort without making any sacrifices to efficiency.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
