It’s less than 4 weeks now until the most prestigious bike race of the year. Only the best are invited and only the top bikes will compete. Since 2014, KROSS has been working closely with the Kross Racing Team to create the ultimate machine for Rio de Janiero.
Weighing in at just 970g, the ultra light Level B+ carbon frame is constructed from 2 variations of fibers and delivers the perfect balance of stiffness and control. Combined with the carefully calculated geometry, the LeveL B+ allows the rider to apply maximum power in the sprints and climbs as well as tackle corners and steep sections with absolute confidence.
With a total weight of 7,9kg no gram is excess – each component is carefully thought through. Sram’s 1x11 Eagle XX1 is Maja’s choice of drivetrain. While the gold chain is appealing, it was the immediate gear shifts and durability that convinced KROSS engineers to mount it on the their top model hardtail. As we know from the World Championships in Nove Mesto – the light weight Schwalbe tires perform well and keep the bike light – but not without a certain level of risk. But you need to risk it to get the biscuit! Switching back to the Rockshox SID suspension up front sheds unnecessary grams and helps keep the bike firm.
In celebration of the prestigious opportunity to compete in the most important event of the year, the graphic designers at KROSS went the extra mile to produce a lively, vibrant colorway – matching the spirit of Rio de Janiero and the competitions atmosphere. So when you tune in to watch the MTB race in Rio de Janiero this August, make sure you look out for the raging KROSS level B+.
