KTM Revelator 4000 Compact Road Bike - 2015
Designed for top-level racing performance, the KTM Revelator 4000 Compact road bike brings all the goods you would expect from a European road bike of this caliper...and more. Constructed from KTM's R:1485 monocoque carbon fiber, the Revelator is stiff, fast, and lightweight. Stand up on the pedals and this bike is going places. And it won't weight you don't in the mountains either--born in the Austrian Alps, the Revelator is a bike that has climbing in its DNA. The bike feels so light, and so responsive, that the higher the grade, the more you'll come to appreciate the bike's engineering. A BB72 PressFit bottom bracket and tapered headtube help stiffen up the frame in crucial areas. The thin seat stays and bladed carbon fiber fork help build some compliance into the frame, so it'll feel as good at mile 100 as it did at mile 10.
Of course, getting a great frameset is only half the battle if you don't nail the component spec, and here's where KTM really delivers the goods. A Full Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset puts 11-speeds at your disposal so you can always find the perfect gear. Trickle down technology from the pro-level Dura-Ace groupset, refined lever ergonomics, a redesigned front and rear derailleur, and that striking, innovative crankset all combine to give you shifting like you've never felt it before--especially with the front derailleur. Shimano Ultegra 6800 brakes help slow your roll with some of the best feeling, most responsive and best modulated brakes in the business. Wrapping up the build is a set high quality DT Swiss R 25 Spline wheels, wrapped up in Continental Gran Prix SL 700x23 tires. A Ritchey Comp cockpit and 27.2mm seatpost and Fizik Ardea saddle finish things up with a lightweight, premium package.
