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
