KH frames balance the competing requirements of strength, weight, and stiffness, refined through years of evolution and testing by trials, muni, distance World Champions and backcountry adventurers.
Made from 7005 aluminum, the one piece forged fork crown and neck incorporates the best characteristics of both flat top and rounded designs, with a stable platform and rounded corners to avoid bashed knees. Different tube diameters and sidewall thicknesses are used in different parts of the frame to optimize strength weight ratio.
The seatpost tube is closed at the bottom to prevent entry of mud. The fork blades are ovalized and stiff in both lateral and twisting directions - important for avoiding rim brake rub. The 24” and larger frames come with both Magura™ rim brake and Spirit disk brake compatible mounts.
