KRU Products Preview at Eurobike 2017

At Eurobike 2017 we have shown a preview of some of the newest products we’ve been working on.

These are prototypes that we plan to produce in the near future so keep in mind that they might change and that they will eventually look more polished.

Here they are:

KRU K-Class Cockpit with Extensions
This is going to be a variation of the KRU K-Class Cockpit which will allow to add or remove Aerobar extensions. This is a product designed for triathlon, in particular for those who would like to use a full aero road bike with a true triathlon set-up instead of a triathlon bike. These are cyclists who only want to keep a single multi purpose bike, that mostly do draft legal racing and occasionally do non-draft races, or triathletes competing on challenging or extreme courses with big elevation gains and steep climbs.

KRU K-Class Aero Stem
This will be a stem designed to match the K-Class Aero Handlebar but obviously works with any 31.6 mm handlebar and comes with the same KRU ECS clamping system and support functionality found on the K-Class Cockpit (support for cycling computers, etc.)

This prototype is an aerodynamic drink bottle and cage system that leaves a very minimal footprint on the bicycle.

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.

HUB CAP

Our hub caps are available in several colours for personalisation and are designed to add style and protection to KRU wheel hubs.

KRU HUB

Below you can see in detail our patented hubs and signature skewers.

KRU VALVE

In the detail below you can see the valve area of KRU rims.

There you have it! If you’re looking for more pictures and information on our products, check the product section of our website or some of the news articles that talk about KRU.

KRU in the news: BDC-MAG

Popular Italian cycling news site and community BDC-Mag has visited us at the Eurobike Show. Piergiorgio from BDC Mag (Bici da Corsa) has asked us several questions about our new products and taken a few pictures of our wheels and components.

We are happy to share with you the article they have written titled “Eurobike 2016: KRU about some of the products we announced here in Friedrichshafen such as the K-Class Cockpit, an incredibly light integrated stem-handlebar combination. The post includes details and pictures of both our wheels and components.

Here are some of their quotes translated for those of you who don’t speak italian:

“It’s always a pleasure when in the exhibition we come across a new brand with interesting ideas”

“A very interesting product is the tubular disc wheel, which is built as a single monocoque piece.”

“The hub is one of KRU’s strongest elements. Completely developed and patented by them, they are characterised by a unique system that avoids the loss in performance seen in many wheels due to over-tightening of quick-release skewers. Furthermore, the external parts of the hub can be personalised with covers available in various colours.”

Here is a brief overview of the topics covered by the article form BDC Mag:

  • Insights into our story and the technologies we have developed
  • Pictures of our wheels (carbon clinchers, carbon tubulars and carbon alloy clinchers)
  • Detailed photos of our components (K-cockpit, handlebar and stem)
  • Information on the various accessories we are developing for the cockpit, including a computer mount and a storage box
