Innovation
Speed Unbound

The innovative premium carbon layup uses ultra high-module fibres for unmatched stiffness resulting in maximum power transfer and minimal weight. Kaius boasts our Tuned Compliance Concept Race Technology for a comfortable ride on rough surfaces and targeted reinforcements protect your frame against the demands of gravel racing.

Race-ready Gravel Geometry

Kaius was built with one purpose: to be fast on gravel roads. That is why we produced a gravel-specific frame with a longer reach shifting the front wheel forward to improve stability and increase traction on loose surfaces. With the shorter stem providing responsive handling, Kaius sports a progressive and race-tuned geometry for evolving riding styles.

Integrated Cockpit System (ICS)

The ICS Carbon Aero cockpit features an advanced design and reduced frontal section to match the performance of our race machines. It also arrives with 360mm top width at the hoods, a 12,5° flare, and 420mm width at the drops to provide excellent control at high speeds.

Aerocore Design

Kaius comes in at the highest level of functional integration with our Aerocore design. This evolved solution integrates the bottle cages into the frame to optimize aerodynamic performance.

Lightweight

Being a race bike, Kaius is not only stiff and comfortable but also lightweight. With a frame weighing only 910g, the fork 400g, a seat post at 160g, and the cockpit clocking in at 315g, we produced a module that is going to make you fly up the hills at a lightweight 1.785 kg.

Versatility

Versatile by design, Kaius comes with all you would expect from a high-end gravel race bike. It can fit 1x and 2x drivetrains, tires up to 44 mm, a dropper post, our new MTT Suspensions Stem, and top tube bolt-on bags.
