RACELIGHT KR210 L Finding a true performance race frameset, designed specifically for junior and female riders is not easy. We have been working with Kinesis International to develop the KR-210L frameset, which we believe makes the perfect basis of a proper race bike for aspiring juniors or serious female racers.
Taking a full size road race frame and simply scaling it down is the mistake that many frame builders make. A smaller, lighter rider does not
require the same tubing as the average male pro. The KR-210L uses lighter and smaller dia. chain and seat stays and SPF thin wall front triangle, this keeps things light and responsive and smoothes out the ride for lower weight riders. A shorter top tube is important for comfortable reach from seat to bars, as is a smaller frame height for more standover clearance.
For 2011, we have slightly increased the head tube length, giving a more comfortable riding position.
Short, small frames with full size wheels can cause toe overlap problems, so the KR-210L has slacker head angles to help avoid this and also lengthen the wheelbase and tame the handling. A new, custom painted, aero blade, ‘Energy’carbon fork completes the package.White/Deep Blue Metallic. White/Deep coral Red metallic.
