The layup for the Militis frames is a proprietary blend of high modulus fibers. More important than just using high grades of carbon, the right carbon in the right place. Pair this construction technique with a tapered headtube, oversized downtube and chainstays, and the result is an 880gram Militis frame that has all the stiffness where it counts. With the rigidity of the frame surrounding the drivetrain, these bikes launch forward with every pedal stroke. And the CDS plate inserts allow the Militis to be compatible with both electrical and mechanical cable systems.
