Many of our pro triathletes ride the CP KATANA. The 15 time Ironman distance champion and a member of Australian Ironman Hall of Fame, Belinda Granger, has this to say about this bike:
“Once completely built, the first thing I noticed about the Katana was the weight or should I say ‘lack of weight’. This is the lightest TT/Triathlon Bike I have ever had the pleasure of owning. The lighter bike added to the thrill factor of my first ride. I love it because it fits me like a glove and there are not too many top of the line TT bikes out there that are made for shorter athletes like myself.
It is super responsive and incredibly stiff yet still exceptionally comfortable. I can stay down on my aero bars for entire 5hr+ rides. The acceleration is amazing and you just know that the power driven into the crank gives an instant return of speed.
Position-wise I had no trouble finding my favored low position at the front and forward seated position, and the little icons etched onto the frames made measuring a breeze. Overall I love the new Katana – a must if you want to go fast this coming Triathlon season.”
