At CEEPO, long and middle distance (226K & 113K) triathlon geometry is the key to our success and Katana geometry is a good example, allowing perfect positioning for riding long and middle distance followed by running.
Stiff and light:
Lowered downtube hidden behind fork crown, big chainstays, and simple tube shapes. We designed the Katana to make it one of the lightest, stiffest and most efficient long distance triathlon frame on the market. Hilly courses, flat courses, the Katana will help you face any challenge.
TTV rear calipers:
Simple light and very aerodynamic (fits wider rims)
Reversible seat post:
Allowing a great range of saddle positions
Electric shifting ready
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.”
