Hybride Kato FS 8 AL

Backcountry

Characteristics

Our new KATO FS is geared towards a maximum of e-fun and safety no matter now rugged the terrain! The E-Fully with the optimum set-up ploughs serenely through uneven terrain: It is ensured by the combination of high-quality suspension (140 mm/140 mm) and 27.5-Plus tyres with sensational rollover behaviour and grip. Our KATO FS is powered by Shimano's new Steps MTB motor. It is lightweight and compact, yet extremely powerful and is very intuitive and dynamic to ride. The smaller size makes it possible us to keep the chain stays short and make the KATO FS a highly versatile E-Fully. Visually, the lithe, slim battery fits nestles perfectly on the downtube and the switching performance is particularly smooth - after all, everything comes from a single source and are perfectly in tune with each other: With our top model with Di2 you are guaranteed longer gear service life and even an intelligent gear shift interruption of the drive.

TECHNOLOGIES & FEATURES

Innovation, development and design: core elements explained.

Our bikes profit from more than 25 years of experience: we've always been detail loving bike addicts. Therefore, we are constantly developing our bikes and playing at the top of the game with innovative concepts and new designs. Superior suspension designs like our RIOT-link, award-winning design and incomparable riding pleasure make up for one thing: our bikes are our pride.

Tapered head tube

The conical standard for greater stiffness.

Butted tapering has many advantages, including weight reduction, greater stiffness and improved load distribution.

Full-complement bearings

Details that are worthwhile.

The highest standard for all! With these long-life ball bearings our mountain bikes are well protected against all influences, whether dirt, shear forces or wear.

FEM-optimised

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions.

Every last detail of our FEM-optimised frames has been improved using complex calculations. This results in simple solutions that are much more complex than they appear.

Forged chainstay yoke

A solution forged in heaven.

The connection between the chainstay and bottom bracket is a crucial point on the bike. With our elaborate forged solution we achieve a very high degree of stiffness and strength.

Four-joint rear suspension

The best on any trail.

Proven for years, this reliable rear suspension works according to a progressive principle in which the braking forces do not affect the suspension function. This guarantees maximum pedalling efficiency and traction - uphill and downhill.
