mkv. SS crit
As the competition in fixed gear crits continues to stiffen, we felt that the difference between racing on a banked velodrome, and racing on a crowded course with varying flat turns was big enough to justify a purpose built frame, particularly suited to the wild and woolly environment of the modern single speed crit race.
Instead of trying to build an aerodynamic track bike, the MKI SS Crit features an oversized, round tubeset to put more emphasis on torsional stiffness and acceleration - more suited to a style off racing where hairpin turns require large decelerations followed by quick accelerations.
Crit specific geometry and a higher bottom bracket allows for better pedal clearance on tight, flat turns, and extra maneuverability in a race where agility and position is key.
