Standert has updated their popular made-in-Italy Kreissäge RS scandium alloy road bike to be faster and lighter than ever, now also with completely stealth routing. The Dedacciai scandium bike already featured oversized tubing, so it was a rather simple new Deda headset setup to go fully internal with cable routing. Plus, Standert say they’ve boosted drivetrain stiffness and rider comfort with tubeset optimization that also sheds grams…
Standert Kreissäge RS scandium alloy road bike
The new Standert Kreissäge RS road bike is a modern alloy disc brake road bike for cyclists looking for a no-nonsense race bike feel. As they put it…
“Stiffer, lighter and faster than ever. Made from Scandium aluminum. Fully integrated cabling. Proven race-winning geometry. Simply the best racing bike we’ve ever made. Made to go fast, brake late, hit the apex, accelerate out of turns and sprint for whatever you are sprinting for. Agile, direct, responsive, safe. Control is fast.”
Plus, who needs carbon when alloy looks this good?
Tech details & What’s new?
With the updated Kreissäge RS you get a classic road bike profile, but all the modern features you could ask for – light weight, race-ready geometry, flat mount disc brakes, 12mm thru-axles, 30mm tire clearance, T47 bottom bracket, 27.2mm seatpost, and now fully-internal cable routing.
The Kreissäge RS frame is handmade in Italy from Dedacciai Scandium alloy tubing, now with a bi-ovalized front triangle, reshaped S-bend seatstays & chainstays for additional rider comfort, and sleek new stiffened dropouts for improved shift performance.
In the end, Standert also says the updated Kreissäge RS road frame is “10% lighter” than its predecessor. Although it’s unclear where exactly that ~130g savings may be, since they still list a 1360g weight claim, perhaps chalking it up to overall savings from the revised routing which could allow for lighter tubing?
Standert Kreissäge RS – Pricing, availability & options
One big new thing for the updated Standert Kreissäge RS is a stealth Black Widow paintjob on top of the classy Silver Dagger look or the flashy Team Edition pro replica finish.
All three are offered in 7 stock sizes as framesets for 1600€, which unfortunately aren’t expected to be back in stock until at least the end of August, or complete bikes.
Complete Kreissäge RS bike builds start at 5000€ with a SRAM Rival AXS groupset including a power meter, alloy DT Swiss wheels, and alloy finishing kit. There are also Force AXS & Ultegra Di2 builds, plus options for CeramicSpeed bearing, OSPW & UFO drip chain upgrades, too.
