Can't seem to find any specs online for the Oltre X1 - other than a few articles saying there's a 100g weight penalty but apart from that its the same frame as the X2

Plenty of differences between xr1 and xr2 , 2 being the better.

Higher grade carbon.

Bb386evo instead of bb86

X Wrapped headtube and bottom bracket shell.

Think there is more shaping gone into the tubes.
That's why it's stiffer, lighter and more expensive!

Thanks - you wouldn't by any chance have a link to those specs?

It's in the 2016 catalogue saying which bikes use which technology, if you can find it on the website.

(Not so easy to find, although I've got a copy from somewhere)
