Launching the K-Class Cockpit

At Eurobike Show 2017 KRU is announcing the K-Class Super Compact Cockpit, the most advanced integrated cockpit on the market.

It’s composed of an integrated system of handlebar and stem in a single piece. Its clever technology and design features make it the most lightweight integrated cockpit on the market. It’s made for racing and it will improve your cycling experience to the highest level.

The K-Class Super Compact Cockpit isn’t just light. In fact, it offers an exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio thanks to advanced engineering and the KRUCH technology.

The aerodynamic shape brings drag to a minimum to help you go faster. The clamping system fits perfectly within the aerodynamic profile and thanks the Enhanced Clamp System it is optimally secured to the steerer tube for maximum safety and comfort.

We designed the bar section without any sharp edges to offer comfortable handling and grip which is often absent on aerodynamic products in the industry.

The Cockpit is available in the span measures of 20 and 40 mm. The span is the width difference between the drops and the top of the handlebar. These sizes offer the best handling position and improve comfort for out of saddle efforts when “on the drops”. The Super Compact has a 125mm drop which enables a very quick movement of the hands from the “drops” racing position to the “hoods” and vice versa.

The bend shape of the Aero Handlebar has a 4° backsweep in the front part of the handlebar. This feature increases fingers grip comfort for racing cyclists as it takes into account the way the handlebars are held during intense race efforts.

KRU will be at Eurobike at stand B3-312

KRU at Eurobike 2016

As you know, we have attended Eurobike 2016 where we presented numerous new Kru products.

Our collection now includes not just high performance wheels, but also ultra light components such as classic and aero handlebars, an ultra light stem and an integrated cockpit.

We have also taken a few pictures from our stand that show some of the distinctive features we announced and are delighted to show them to you.

DRAFT BOX

You can see our aero cockpit with the mount for a draft box you can use to carry tools and accessories.

COMPUTER MOUNT

Below you can see the mount without the draft box. This is designed to support cycling computers (such as Wahoo and Garmin) but also the Shimano Di2 junction box.

SUPER COMPACT CURVE

Our signature “super compact” curve design for the Aero cockpit and Aero handlebar allows for a wide range of degrees of brake levers set up and very fast hand movement.
