Characteristics

Our KATO is a fast, agile hardtail mountain bike that climbs uphill efficiently. The frame has been completely redesigned, with internally routed cables and a fresh design. But one thing has remained the same: The KATO is simply fun! With 100mm of travel and extremely low-maintenance components, it is the perfect entry-level mountain bike, available in many different versions: with single, double or triple drive and 27.5 or 29 inch wheels, in many great colors - and all this at a really attractive price.

The illustration above is an example. We reserve the right, as long as the type, suitability and purpose of the bike are not reduced, to replace individual parts with components of the same or higher quality, so that the bike is delivered differently. The use of other components is currently mainly caused by delivery problems due to the Corona pandemic.

Aluminium

Aluminium-Rahmen

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions.

Our optimized FEM frames have been improved with complex calculations down to the last detail. The resulting, seemingly simple solutions are much more complex than they appear. 

Forged solution.

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

Wheelsize 27.5 inch

Wheelsize 29 inch

Designed with truly refreshing storage in mind.

There's plenty of space for refreshments. Bikes featuring this symbol provide plenty of space for a bottle. 

Lower for more freedom.

Our frames are already prepared for dropper seat posts: The cables can be routed inside the tubes for a clean look and better protection. For all those who are already thinking about tomorrow today.

Best braking power, with exceptional control.

Whether in town or on terrain: The hydraulic disc brakes guarantee a safe and fast grip even in wet conditions, are easy to control and are not vulnerable in terms of dirt or performance loss.

Prepared like second to none.

In case you need a safe stand at some point: These bikes are ready for the retrofit. 

Stay clean!

Anyone who wants to keep mud and water splashes at bay can easily retrofit their bike with mudguards.
