The frame has a strong heritage of winning. It has USA Criterium Series Individual and Team Champion heritage due to Team Mountain Khaki. For those captivated by the U.S. racing scene, riders like Jon Hamblen, Mark Hekman, Adam Myerson, and Isaac Howe have earned victories on our K Team Racing and K Team Carbon SL frames. Our machines are built to meet what races and racers throw at them, but still geometrically sound so the recreational rider can ride for hours and not suffer from aches and pains of everyday riding. We design our bikes to maximize ride quality, but also take advantage of the most durable materials available.
Utilizing aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, we crafted a frame that is 15% stronger and 20% fatigue resistant than the traditional 6061 aluminum alloy. Being a company that excels in the aesthetic department, we know you want your frame and components to look clean too. All of the joints in the frame are tig welded and incorporate a hidden (integrated) headset for an ultra-sleek look. Your bike will not look clunky. You can choose from numerous forks to compliment your frame. This frame has a short head tube for two main reasons: 1) a shorter head tube reduces the amount of flex in that area, and 2) provides the right balance of weight to the front wheel, which gives you that cornering dominance and responsive steering. For riders wanting a light and superior durable rig, this is the frame that defines how a high end all-aluminum frame should ride.
As far as ride quality is concerned, it is stiff in all right places. It accelerates well out of the saddle and excels while climbing. This climbing prowess is due to the bikes light weight (16.1 lbs for an aluminum frame/carbon fork with SRAM red, Zipp aluminum cockpit, and Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels). Despite its race oriented geometry, it is still very comfortable for long hours on the bike. I can also attest to the bikes durability on long stretches of dirt and gravel. The paint job is stunning. ~ Karsten, K Team Racing SL rider
