Kona took on the challenge posed by cyclocross Elite riders Ryan Tebron and Barry Wicks. For 2011, they requested for a specific frame which is lighter, faster and stiffer than the competition but must be in a 63cm frame. The result was the 2011 Carbon Kona Jake.

Wicks shares, “I don’t know how they did it, but they were able to produce a bike for us that met all our specific targets… from the perspective of a racer, we are always trying to make our bikes lighter, stiffer and faster. The scandium Major Jake frames that we have been riding for the last few seasons have been awesome, but we wanted to see if we could push it a little bit further.”

Kona developed an all-carbon Kona Jake with special attention to details like the bottom bracket junction. A BB30 bottom bracket shell was in place and to bring it…

Kinesis UK shows off its new cyclocross frame called the Crosslight CSix2 for 2011. The frame is full carbon-made and a first for Kinesis.
