Guru

 

 

A custom bicycle is the ultimate interface between rider and the road, one that should feel like a natural extension of your body. That’s why Guru custom-crafts their frames based on individual rider specifications. From carbon layup and metal welding to final clear coat, Guru does it all in their ultra-modern facility based in Montreal, Canada.

For Guru, custom is not an exercise in vanity or luxury–it’s all about precision serving performance. Contrary to other custom builders, Guru goes beyond made-to-measure geometry to produce some of the most technologically advanced bicycles in the entire industry. Their composites program, in particular, pushes the boundaries of custom manufacturing. From F.E.A.-perfected, seamless frame designs that take full advantage of carbon fiber’s tensile properties, to a proprietary molding process that generates singular, monocoque parts with an exceptional fiber-to-resin ratio, the list of home-grown innovations goes on.

Guru's operations are based in a cycling-crazy city that happens to be a hotbed of aeronautical technology and expertise. Thus, their products are engineered to the latest aerospace standards in order to deliver a pure and powerful ride.

Photon Carbon

 

Guru Photon

 

The Photon delivers off the chart power transfer and yet is more comfortable than any road bike you've ever ridden. It corners like a Formula 1 car, yet is silky smooth and reliable over the long haul. At the same time this bike happens to be the lightest custom frame in the world,  tipping the scales at under 750 grams for a 54 cm frame including an integrated seat mast.

The Guru Photon is quite simply, the world's most advanced composite road frame. At the root of this bike's gram-for-gram supremacy is the use of North-American sourced, military grade HS-40 carbon fiber.

When developing the Photon, we subscribed to a "less is much more" design philosophy, so that the carbon fiber's exceptional properties are harnessed to produce an unprecedented stiffness-to-weight ratio.

Like every Guru frame, the Photon is custom built in-house to individual rider specifications. That means the superior ride quality of a perfect fit is standard issue. Finally, an ultra-lightweight that can make a believer out of any cyclist!

Features:

  • Integrated seat mast
  • Ultra light weight 750 grams

Evolo - R Carbon

 

Guru Evolo-R

 

The mandate when designing the brand new Evolo-R was to take proven Guru technology and create a muscular performance machine. Stiffness and power come directly from our oversized bottom bracket using the Truvativ Pressfit 30 BB system. Features include a muscular bottom bracket shell, all carbon dropouts, an integrated seatmast and the 1 1/8" – 1 1/2" tapered headtube for an integrated front fork and increased front stiffness.

Quite literally, a true race machine, it was designed to be super stiff.

Whether you require an aggressive low and long stance, a more relaxed upright position or anything in between – Guru Custom can make it happen!

Features:

  • Oversize pressfit 30 bottom bracket system
  • Carbon dropouts
  • Integrated seatmast
  • Tapered headtube

CR.901 Carbon

 

Guru CR.901

 

The objective for CR.901 was straightforward: dial it all up! Take the legendary ride quality and performance characteristics of our Guru Crono; itself an Ironman and world championship winning bike and enhance them to unsurpassed levels. It wasn't an easy task, but our design & engineering team came through with flying colors.

CR.901 has a completely revolutionary frame profile in the Custom arena, featuring a meticulously optimized air foil configuration that produces a 20% aerodynamic advantage versus the NACA industry standard. The new design delivers an oversized bottom bracket and chain stay junction that translates into the purest of power transfers.

CR.901 also features a uniquely contoured seat stay design that, when combined with the frame's 70/30 carbon fiber-to-resin construction, produces the smoothest, most body preserving ride we've ever offered to multi-sport athletes.

All of this innovation does not come at the expense of a perfect fit ? it's a Guru, after all, so it remains fully customizable. Ultimately, this bike will extract the very best performance out of you, allowing you to ride and run faster than ever before. Objective met.

CR.701 Carbon

 

Guru CR.701

 

Where the CR.901 screams power and aerodynamics, the CR.701 is quietly confident in its ability to carry you to the run in less time and in great shape. You get a more aggressive aerodynamic profile than the CR.501, but with the power transfer of the CR.901.

It was designed to exhibit the same legendary ride characteristics as the entire Crono series; off the charts power transfer, while maintaining an elegant and smooth road feel.

Using the same aerodynamic development of the CR.901, our in-house team of engineers and designers implemented NACA aerodynamic profiles in a horizontal plane and translated them into the shape of the tubes.

Fast, confident and 100% custom; enough said.

CR.501 Triathlon

 

Guru CR.501

 

There was a time when triathletes had to choose between the performance benefits of an aero-optimized composite frame and that of a custom fit. The 2011 CR.501 not only makes the combination of 'aero,' 'carbon' and 'made-to-measure' possible, it renders it remarkably affordable.

The unique fasciato-inspired fabrication method behind CR.501 allows for a seamless, lightweight fusion of aero-profiled sections. The bike design also features an oversized down tube that melds into a reinforced bottom bracket to ensure an exceptional power transfer. From there, it's all about placing you in your sweet spot and allowing you to sustain that optimal position as long as possible.

CR.501's custom fit delivers on this promise, working together with the frame's 70/30 carbon fiber-to-resin construction to shield your body against watt-robbing and drag-causing discomfort. Not to mention keeping your legs fresh for the run split.

We have watched with great pride and satisfaction as R.C. has gone from a beginner triathlete to an exceptionally good competitor. She chose a road bike over a pure tri bike due to its versatility. An added bonus is that Guru's custom pink paint job makes it easy for her to spot her bike in the transition area.

C.M. and her husband put many miles on their bikes each season. When they decided to get new bikes, he settled on a Steel IF Crown Jewel with S&S Couplers, and she decided on a Guru Evolo full carbon with custom geometry.

A.C. had very specific requests; we needed to design a very small frame with no toe overlap, and space for two bottle cages. In order to determine the Guru's target front center, we took the front center from her existing Vitus (which had no toe overlap) and subtracted the distance from the BB to the tip of her shoe, which was clipped into her pedal. The difference was the amount that we could safely deduct from her Vitus' front center in order to eliminate overlap on her Guru. For the bottle cages, we used Arundel's side-entry cages to allow her to use 24 oz. bottles on both the downtube and seattube. The resulting custom Evolo was a no-compromise machine that will see many miles ahead.
