Making a race machine means keeping it lightweight and efficient. And, of course it has to look spectacular. Starting with the already fast Catrike 700 we spec'd it out with the best road components out there and made some other mods to get a final ready-to-ride weight of 29lbs10oz.

 - Starting with the paint we used Prismatic Pearl White for the frame and boom and Tiger's Candy Red for the bits and pieces.

 - For chain we used the SRAM 1091R hollow pin chain. This is the lightest 10-speed chain available and perfectly matched for the SRAM Red componentry.

 - We chose a SRAM Red 53/39 double crankset to give us the desired gear range. This crankset is incredibly lightweight. It is paired with the SRAM Force road derailleur.

 - The rear derailleur is the SRAM Red road derailleur. This is consistently rated as the best cable-actuated derailleur available. Ultra precise, super lightweight and nearly silent.

 - The front wheels are custom 20-inch Velocity A23 with bladed spokes and ceramic bearings. These wheels are significantly lighter than the stock 16-inch wheels and allow us to use the Ultremo ZX tires on the front.

 - The 1091R chain has hollow rivets to save weight, but then they go a step further and take material out of each link to save even more weight. It is expensive but super light.

The 20in wheel make the steering a bit heavier, but overall I feel it improved the handling.
