“The bike is fast and responsive — the geometry dictates it — with the right amount of stiffness to never lose the feeling of razorlike steering response. And it’s stable — even descending at speeds up to 75kmh, there was never a hint of speed wobble. Cornering the bike is direct and confident — it holds the line and even let me relax for a second, knowing it’ll go where I expect it.” ~ Article on our SL
Our aluminum required two years of research and development with our partners to acquire the right ride, has proven to be worth the wait. With custom drawn tubing, tripled butted for maximum weight savings, and an aluminum alloy that is 15% stronger and 20% more fatigue resistant than standard 6061 aluminum, the frame earns the Kane name. The carbon fiber, which sports 3k carbon fiber seat and chain stays, helps reduce road vibrations that can take its toll on a rider after a long day in the saddle or the fast corners in a crit. The frame is ultra-light with exceptional ride quality. 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. 1-1/8″ head tube. British / English threaded bottom bracket. For those wanting the pureness of aluminum, but the refinement of carbon, look no further than the K Team Carbon SL
