KTM Revelator Prestige Di2 Carbon Road Bicycle – 2016. One of the first things that will jump out at you when looking at the 2016 KTM Prestige Di2 road bike is how clean the bike looks. A carbon fiber frame is magnificent for absorbing road vibration while maximizing power transfer, but let’s not forget the ability to shape and mold the frame for other purposes as well. With carbon fiber, it’s an easy task to route all of the wires and cables internally. Road vibration can be muted further by shrinking the seatstays to a whisper of a tube while maximizing power transfer by bulking up the chainstays without adding significant weight. As long as so much stiffness has been added to the chainstays, why would you put the brakes anywhere else? Shimano’s Dura Ace direct mount brakes find a perfect home underneath the seatstays, giving you more braking power while keeping the seatstay — seattube junction clean and minimal. This is even more accentuated by the Revelator Prestige’s integrated seatpost binding bolt, harkening back to a time when frames were allowed to match their function with equal parts beauty. Not to be left out of this carbon game, Fulcrum’s Racing Quattro Carbon wheels use a 12k carbon weave to create a rim that is shockingly light considering how strong they are. A medium depth rim at 52mm, the Fulcrum Racing Quattro strikes a balance between maximizing forward momentum and stiffness without making you a sail for any crosswind that happens to come your way. The Ritchey WCS cockpit and seatpost further the mission to make this an ideal road bike and of course, Shimano’s Di2 brake/shift levers are mounted to that bar. The Di2 drivetrain needs little introduction to anyone who has watched any professional racing in the last couple of years as there is hardly a podium without Di2 taking the top honors. Beauty meets function in the KTM Revelator Prestige Di2. The only missing component between the Revelator Prestige and the top step of the podium is your legs.
