The State Bicycle Co. Contender is the “step-up” from our core line models; we would call it a “leap-up”, but nobody says that…
It features the same frame as our core line models --a 4130 chromoly steel frame -- but is upgraded with a carbon fiber fork with aluminum steer tube, for decreased weight and improved handling. The crank has been upgraded as well, to a SRAM S100 track crank, with Truvativ Powerspline bottom bracket. The key technology behind the Truvativ Powerspline is the “splined” area; instead of the commonly found square-taper set-up, the Powerspline has teeth that fit precisely with the SRAM S100 crank, for faster response at the pedals.
The wheels of the Contender show off with a smooth, sealed bearing hub to maximize momentum and protection from dirt and grit. The frameset is tied together with a sealed bearing FSA MX Orbit headset for the smoothest steering possible. The final upgrade on the Contender is the aerodynamic “race saddle” upgrade from the core model.
