Calling your bike the Revelator shows no lack of confidence, and Austrian motorbike and cycling specialists KTM clearly believe in their ride seeing as they have thirteen – yes thirteen – different versions of it in their range.
From the £1,300 3300 model all the way to the five grand plus Prestige Di2 and three disc-ready versions, the Revelator is the peg on which KTM have hung their pedal-powered hopes and it’s a bike that doesn’t disappoint.
Of course, the crowning glory of this build in spec terms is the Ultegra Di2 groupset. There’s only one adjective to describe Ultegra Di2 and that is superb. Having ridden both Ultegra and Dura-Ace Di2 I can tell you first hand that the difference between the two basically boil down to looks and weight. That weight difference is around 50g, so unless you’re desperate to have the eye-catching chrome crankset of Dura-Ace, there’s little reason to look much further up the ladder than Ultegra. The shifting is wonderful, powerful and unerringly precise and the braking power with the dual-pivot brakes – introduced for the 6800 series of Ultegra – are every bit as good as the Dura-Ace versions. Full Ultegra Di2 on a bike of this price – £2,499 – is also excellent value.
