Koga Cobblecrosser for the Paris-Roubaix
The Koga Cobblecrosser is the result of Shimano and Koga’s partnership with Skil-Shimano. This bike is designed specifically for the Paris-Roubaix competition.
The Cobblecrosser is aptly named because it aims to help its rider on cobbled roads, irregardless of the climate, whether dry or wet. The frame has a wide space around the brakes and wheels. The frame is also of high quality shock absorbing material called scandium.
For better suspension, Shimano chose to include cantilever-type brakes and molded the 32-spoke wheelset with aluminium rims that are set low. Special satellite shifters and the Shimano electronic Di2 gear system are on the handle bars so you can shift gears with your hands.
The Koga Cobblecrosser frame comes in pitch-black color. The cyclists who will be using the special modified bike on Sunday at the Paris-Roubaix are Mitchell Docker, Koen de Kort, Floris Goesinnen, Roy Curvers, Robert Wagner, Steve Houanard, Tom Veelers and Robin Chaigneau.
