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.

Aluminum

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. 

Wider is better.

Boost means wider hubs. A small adjustment for a great improvement: Wider hubs bring more stability on bigger wheelset diameters much like the 29er bikes.

The best on every 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.
