We took an in-depth look at a bunch of new mountain bikes from KTM earlier in the week, and now we have some more info on their Revelator and Revelator Sky road bikes and Canic cyclocross bikes that all share a lot of tech with the off-road bikes. While the bikes look pretty similar to last year’s models, they get a decent amount of under the paint upgrades, plus a broader range of spec levels.
Jump past the break for the new road line details…
This year, the new carbon Canics and Revelators claim new forks with ovalized steerer tubes to maximize lateral stiffness while still allowing some fore-aft flexibility to absorb impacts. They also get the looped hollow carbon drop outs we saw on the Myroon. The new Canic carbon builds on the bike that was introduced last year. This top level Canic CXC 11 comes with a Force CX1 drivetrain and DT Swiss X1700 wheels set up tubeless with the new Schwalbe X-One tires. Pricing for the CXC 11 is set at 3600€ with a claimed weight of 8.2kg. Adding just 100g the Canic CXC swaps in a mechanical/hydraulic Ultegra groupset with the same wheel/tire combo. Below that an aluminum frame version is available with a 105 group with mechanical brakes with a 9.8kg weight claim.
We also saw the Revelator Sky hit the market this year, with disc brakes and endurance geometry. The bike even won some Best Of awards this year. But for 2016 it looks even better with flat mount disc brakes and a third spec level. The fork looks to get a bit tighter clearance to distinguish itself from the Canic, but details were slim. The top Revelator Sky Di2 Black gets an electronic/hydraulic Ultegra build with DT R23 wheels for a claimed weight of 7.8kg and a retail price of 4200€. The Orange build gets mechanical/hydraulic Ultegra, the same R23s, and a claimed 7.9kg weight; and the Blue spec gets mechanical/hydraulic 105, DT R24s, and a weight of 8.5kg. All three bikes are set up tubeless with Schwalbe One 25mm tires.
The new Revelator with the BB-mounted brake that we previewed mid-summer takes design cues from the Skys for a more sweeping, stealth look. This third tier Revelator Prime gets a mechanical Ultegra build, plus Ksyrium Elite wheels. And even at a claimed 6.9kg, it is the lowest priced version of the new frameset at 3300€. The Ultegra Di2 Prime version gets the same claimed weight with the same wheels; and a 6.6kg Prestige Di2 version is also available with electronic Dura-Ace and Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon wheels.
