Yesterday, we got a sneak preview of the new and very first cyclocross frames from Redline before Sea Otter officially kicked off, but today we went back to get the stats on the five newest Redline Conquest cyclocross models.
New for this year is the addition of thru axle forks on all of the carbon models.
The top-of-the-line carbon Conquest Pro will be equipped with SRAM Force CX1 and full hydraulic disc brakes from SRAM (though the show bike was shown with Avid BB7 MTN disc brakes), and retails for $3,759.99, complete with Novatec CXD disc wheels that are tubeless ready. Redline’s team will likely race these exact wheels, since the team has switched from Challenge to Kenda tires for 2014, and Redline’s 30-34 National Champion Justin Lindine plans to race Kenda SCT tires tubeless on his Novatec CXD wheels.
The Conquest Pro features a Fizik Tundra 2 saddle, Cyrano stem and the excellent Cyrano seatpost, one of our favorites due to its easy angle adjustment and reliable hold on the saddle and angle.
A level down and showcasing the new (and not yet officially announced) SRAM Rival 22 with A-Class tubeless wheels, TRP HY/RD hydraulic disc brakes and Schwalbe Smart Sam tires is the Conquest Elite at $2,659.99. Rival adds YAW and an extra cog for 2014, a move that we predicted in our show preview just two days ago.
The last of the carbon frames is the Conquest Expert, which will be decked out with SRAM Apex 10-speed and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes for $2,299.
A solid thousand bucks cheaper than the carbon models, the Conquest Comp is the first in the lineup to have Shimano componentry with the TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes for $1,299. The striking red alloy Conquest doesn’t look that different than the original Conquest from 1994.
The basic Conquest model comes with Shimano Sora with Render R mechanical disc brakes for $1,059 as seen below:
Want the best of the Redline frames? The carbon Conquest Flight with a front thru axle is available for an estimated $1,699.
Redline stressed that the MSRPs listed aren’t set in stone, and are still subject to change as the bikes become available.
