Borrowing heavily from the Dutch brand’s Kinsei track bike, KOGA is flaunting its latest road version aptly called the Kinsei Road, mimicking many of its track brethren’s aerodynamic properties such as an oversized head tube, full-internal cable and hose routing, as well as an integrated handlebar and stem.
Additionally, the Kinsei Road has also been treated to greater clearance, providing enough spacing to accommodate tires up to 28mm.
“The Kinsei Road is inspired by our track bike of the same name that was used by Dutch track cyclist Harrie Lavreysen to grab medal after medal, but completely optimized for the road. “Kinsei” means made for gold in Japanese and to every fiber, this aero racer is made to outpace air resistance. Your competition has already been warned!,” boasts KOGA.
According to KOGA, CFD (computational fluid dynamics) played an important role when developing the Kinsei Road, as evidenced by the bold use of tube shapes and profiles, namely, the frame’s distinctive curved seat tube design, as well as a massive head tube and fork. The bike also gets a D-shaped aero seatpost.
Offering in four guises, the Prestige, Premium, Prime and Pro, each model is differentiated by its level of componentry, with prices ranging from €4,199 to €9,999.
Here’s how the variants breakdown:
