For this week the featured product is the new 2019 KTM Revelator Alto range, specifically the Sonic. This bike was released last week worldwide and I'm sure you have seen the video put together to showcase it's beauty- if not its at the bottom of this blog.
In this blog we will be digging deeper into the spec and geometry of this bike and why it's KTM's most stunning non-aero road frame to date.
The new Revelator Alto was designed for the high-end road-races. The frame weight of the Alto Master and Elite is one of the lightest of all disc road bikes at only 1050g. Even more remarkable, the Sonic weighs in at only 790g. “Alto” represents the pinnacle, this also reflects it's favourite terrain, the mountains. Uphill or downhill the Alto is designed to perform.
The light weight has been achieved without compromising the stiffness. Both the nano-carbon (Sonic) and the premium-carbon (Master and Elite) feature the highest quality workmanship.
Even Pavé is no fear for the Alto, as the dropped seat stays increase the comfort of the ride. The carbon fork has an asymmetric design to help absorb the brake forces applied to the non-drive side. You can see the full geometry for the range bellow.
The pro-Conti team Neri Sottoli-Selle Italia-KTM as well as the Austrian Conti team Tirol KTM Cycling Team are the first who will prove the quality of this bike. The Alto is the latest member of the growing Revelator family. KTM now produce a range of road bikes to suit the needs of the modern cyclist. Whether you're on your local club run, competing in a crit, Gran Fondo or the Giro, the KTM Revelator Alto offers you the perfect ride.
The Revelator Alto Sonic is available at £6999.99 which includes a whole range of high quality spec that runs throughout the model. The bike runs Shimano Dura Ace R9100 Di2 groupset and disc braking system meaning your braking will always be as important as your shifting. The UCI's recent decision allowing disc brakes to be used in the peleton means that our bikes can be used to race internationally at the highest level and utilise the most recent technology that Shimano has been developing.
The frame is planted on a pair of DT Swiss Pro 1400 Spline carbon wheels creating a seamless look between the road and the rider. This lightweight contact point along with the ritchey/ KTM combo finishing kit means the Sonic weighs in at just 790g. The full spec of the Sonic is listed bellow.
This really is a truly ground breaking bike that will be a landmark in KTM for years to come. We at Fli are very much looking forward to not only seeing what the pro riders do on the machines but also lots of summer smiles on the range ourselves. The see the full KTM Alto range click here.
As part of a marketing project we commissioned a well known film maker to put together a little piece of a custom Alto Sonic combined with some Ursus TC67 Disc wheels and components.
