There was a time when triathletes had to choose between the performance benefits of an aero-optimized composite frame and that of a custom fit. The 2011 CR.501 not only makes the combination of 'aero,' 'carbon' and 'made-to-measure' possible, it renders it remarkably affordable.

The unique fasciato-inspired fabrication method behind CR.501 allows for a seamless, lightweight fusion of aero-profiled sections. The bike design also features an oversized down tube that melds into a reinforced bottom bracket to ensure an exceptional power transfer. From there, it's all about placing you in your sweet spot and allowing you to sustain that optimal position as long as possible.

CR.501's custom fit delivers on this promise, working together with the frame's 70/30 carbon fiber-to-resin construction to shield your body against watt-robbing and drag-causing discomfort. Not to mention keeping your legs fresh for the run split.

CR.901 has a completely revolutionary frame profile in the Custom arena, featuring a meticulously optimized air foil configuration that produces a 20% aerodynamic advantage versus the NACA industry standard. Take the legendary ride quality and performance characteristics of our Guru Crono; itself an Ironman and world championship winning bike and enhance them to unsurpassed levels.


Products » Triathlon » CR.701

Using the same aerodynamic development of the CR.901, our in-house team of engineers and designers implemented NACA aerodynamic profiles in a horizontal plane and translated them into the shape of the tubes. It was designed to exhibit the same legendary ride characteristics as the entire Crono series; off the charts power transfer, while maintaining an elegant and smooth road feel.


Products » Road » Evolo-R

Features include a muscular bottom bracket shell, all carbon dropouts, an integrated seatmast and the 1 1/8" – 1 1/2" tapered headtube for an integrated front fork and increased front stiffness. The mandate when designing the brand new Evolo-R was to take proven Guru technology and create a muscular performance machine. Stiffness and power come directly from our oversized bottom bracket using the Truvativ Pressfit 30 BB system.
