    •    Chili Con Crosso – Endure Geometry
- Designed for lightweight, pedaling efficiency in cyclocross and gravel racing. We use a slightly lower bottom bracket for increased stability and a more balanced feel. Proven in events like Trans Iowa and the Dirty Kanza 200
    •    EV6 Extrolite Tubeset
- Custom blended and heat treated aluminum tubing used throughout the frame. This material yields a strong, very light-weight frame with a superior fatigue life
    •    Shaped Chainstays and Seatstays- 
Provide lateral stiffness and a little extra vertical compliance
    •    Tapered Headtube- 
Allows use of tapered forks or standard 1-1/8" forks. Combining the tapered headtube with the large formed downtube greatly increases the front end stiffness and strength of the frame without adding significant weight
    •    PressFit 30 Bottom Bracket Shell- 
Lighter and stiffer for more efficient power transmission
    •    Tapered Seat Tube 
Allows use of a small diameter (27.2mm) seatpost without needing shims. The 27.2mm seatpost avoids the overly harsh ride quality that can result from larger diameter seatposts
    •    Biaxially Ovalized Downtube
- Stiffens bottom bracket for improved power transfer while also stiffening front triangle.
    •    Shaped Toptube- 
Flattened section for more comfortable shouldering during run-ups
    •    Interchangeable Vertical and Horizontal Dropouts- 
Includes swappable vertical and horizontal dropouts for geared or singlespeed setup
    •    Carbon Fork
Tapered for improved steering control
