2014 Militis Elite

Whether lining up for a 100-mile road race or a local crit, at just over 19lbs the Militis Elite is the perfect match of no-compromise components and race engineering. Outfitted with a SRAM Rival, Apex and FSA Gossamer drive train, the Militis Elite is ready to hit the pavement at high speed with no empathy for the competition. We tapped into our long history of developing high performance road bikes to create the new Militis alloy road frames: Militis carbon race-proven geometry executed in aluminum. With its tapered head tube, oversized down tube, BB and chain stays, the new Militis alloy frame minimizes flex and maximizes power transfer while the small-diameter seat stays are vertically compliant without sacrificing stiffness. The Militis Alloy series are our most efficient, highly compliant, and lightest alloy race frames.

Technology: 2014 Militis Series

Fast, Lightweight, Efficient

Carbon Frames

Carbon Frames

The layup for our Militis frames is a proprietary blend of high modulus fibers. More important than just using high grades of carbon, we use 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 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. Making its way from the RXC Pro, the CDS plate inserts are added to the frames this year, allowing the Militis to be compatible with both electrical and mechanical cable systems.

Alloy Frames

Alloy Frames

Also making an introduction this year are two lightweight aluminum models, The Militis Elite and Militis Comp. The AL-6061 frames have a 1.5” tapered head tube and double butted tubes throughout, while small diameter seat stays are vertically compliant without sacrificing stiffness. These Militis Elite and Comp feature our most efficient, highly compliant, and lightest alloy race frames.

FORKS

The Militis 4, 3, 2, Comp, and Elite have our 380 gram full carbon monocoque fork which allows the front end to be more stable at high speeds. More control means your favorite crit turns will be even more exhilarating.

Wheels

The wheels bring a spark of life to a bike, and all 2014 Militis feature upgraded wheels from last year.The Militis 4, 3 and Comp feature race proven Mavic wheels. All other Militis models feature our new wheels with premium hubs and wider rims.The hubs are either Formula sealed-bearing hubs or the new Formula hubs with Smooth BearingTechnology with CNC-machined sealed dust caps for keeping out the elements. Rims are the 23mm wide Weinmann Gmax, or the 21mm wide aerodynamic Momentum.The 2014 Militis bikes are faster and lighter than ever with these new wheels, so set your sights on the podium!

Prologo Saddles

Ridden on by World Champions and grand tour winners, Prologo is a trusted name in the cycling race world. The lightweight and comfortable Prologo Zero saddles are featured across the entire Militis line of bikes this year. Packed with technology and striking looks, these saddles add the perfect complement to our fastest line of bikes.
