I have a Helium SL. very happy about it when it is going uphill or when it is very technical. i have tried the NOAH Fast. It have everything the helium dont have.
Ofcause you can sprint on a helium - Noah is just better. Ofcause you can go fast on flat road on a helium - noah is just better.
Ofcause you can go uphill on a noah - Helium is just better. Ofcause you can go fast in corners on a noah - helium is just better.

Hope it was answer enough. Otherwise ask Mario Jr.

Thakns for your input and good to know.
So the uphill is the helium is better which i'm fine with that. I live in flat land here in Texas and the Giant propel is a good climber so Noah will be for crits.
Just wondering why din't you get the Noah?
BTW..I'll post pictures of the build

I can only echo what @Noah wrote. (I have both a Helium SL and a Noah Fast).

The Helium SL is a fantastic allround and climbing bike with a lot of comfort because of the thin stays and seatpost. My frame in size XS weighs 757grams, so really light.
The Noah Fast is brutally stiff and responsive. A good deal heavier and not as compliant, but I prefer that bike in most terrains, except real mountains. It's just a f.....g nice frame and if you want to use it for crits, I would guess you have found the perfect frame, although I have no problems riding many hours on it. The integrated brakes works very well, too.
