ESKER 4.0

KROSS ESKER 4.0

A steel bicycle is a classic and in our opinion it is one of the best materials for the production of a unique gravel bike. That's why our KROSS Esker 4.0 gravel bike was created for all those who are looking for something permanent and, above all, stylish. And who also know that bikepacking is not a temporary trend, but a state of mind. The KROSS Esker 4.0 was created to safely and comfortably help you reach your destination. Regardless of whether it is the finish line of races such as Wisła 1200 or a simple adventure into the unknown.

The KROSS Esker 4.0 in 2021 is a continuation of the thoughts that guided us when designing the previous models of this bike. It features new, more durable paint and a well-thought-out drivetrain. We have also improved many small details that are not visible at first sight, which will improve your riding comfort on any type of surface. We are sure that the new version of this bike will be as much or even more fun than in the previous years.

Away from civilization

When we sat down to design this bike, we set ourselves the goal of creating one that reaches back to the classics, but at the same time one that is not afraid of modern solutions. That's why we chose Cro-Mo steel to build the frame and the fork. This material allows for much better vibration damping. Steel, thanks to its strength and resistance to damage, allowed us to include numerous mounting holes for the water bottle, carrier or panniers. They can be placed almost anywhere on the frame or fork, without fear of damaging the frame, which we painted in a stylish khaki color. To ensure durability of the paint coat, we decided on powder painting.

Proven components

The components, we used the road Shimano Tiagra group in the KROSS ESKER, supplemented with mechanical disc brakes TRP Spyre-C. We also decided to use an FSA Omega crank with external bottom bracket bearings to facilitate maintenance of the drivetrain and to transfer your power to the drivetrain even more efficiently. TRP Spyre-C disc brakes provide a short braking distance, and thanks to the mechanical design of the caliper, no complicated service is needed in the event of a breakdown on the road. As the wheels, we chose 28-inch WTB ASYM rims, which we assembled on Shimano Deore M6000 hubs. The rims are adapted to the tubeless system. The tires are WTB Resolute with the width of 42 millimeters. A WTB Sport Volt saddle guarantees a comfortable ride.

Size female or male?

Selected KROSS models are available in both women's and men's versions. How to tell the difference between these versions? Women's sizes / frames are distinguished in the frame selection table ('How to choose the frame size') with the letter "D" preceding the letter with the size, for example DM (17 ') 28 "means a bicycle for ladies in size M with a frame size of 17 and wheels 28 inches. Sizes without the preceding letter "D" usually mean a male size or (depending on the model) universal size (e.g. MTB / MTB XC models and others)

How to read frame geometry tables?

M (19 ') 29 "- such an entry means: M - frame size expressed in the symbol, 19' - frame size in inches, and the value 29"- means the diameter of the wheel (rim, tires, tubes) also expressed in inches (usually 26, 27.5 and 29 inches for MTB bikes and 28 inches for trekking, city or road bikes)
