The difference between racing fixed gear bikes on a banked velodrome, and racing on a flat, crowded course with varying turns is big enough to justify a purpose built frame, particularly suited to the wild and woolly environment of the modern single speed crit race.
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 in straightaways.
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.
