2012 collection is another crucial year in Kross history. We are proud to pre-

sent the new group of bikes designed especially for the needs of our profes- sional riders, clients and for ourselves.

We have always been focused on our products’ development and their design. We managed to combine both in the collection of 2012. Particular models are refined in every detail and everyone will find something for themselves. We

offer professional machines to win mountain marathons, dirt toys for big boys and unique city bikes thanks to which you will stand out as well as traditional utility bikes.

2012 season is also a year of big premiers in Kross collection. We developed

our first own suspension system with a virtual pivot point on which our de- signers had worked for a long time. However, we managed to achieve very sensitive suspension which does not waste riders’ energy. Please feel invited to get familiar with our proposals for 2012 year. We hope you will find something for yourself and… see you soon on a trail!

R&D DEPARTMENT

All of the Kross models in 2012 collection were made under the strict supervision of our R&D department. Searching for new technologies, solutions and projects is one of the tasks of our engineers and design experts. This is where projects of our frames and initial pro- totypes are made and finally first test data is sent here. All of this to make Kross bikes better. Additionally, R & D department ensures the selection of appropriate equipment for each group of bikes as well as the appear- ance of our products. Together we prepared a few surprises for the 2012 season:

- refreshed appearance of MTB and Cross models – a combination of bold and con- sistent graphics line gives those groups sporty character, which can not be ignored by high-end bikes 29er is back! R&D department designed two brand new bikes in more and more popular size around the world – 29 inches Series of MTB Dirt Jump bikes – for the first time cooperation of R&D department with riders was so close. Those bikes were designed strictly according to the guide- lines of the best Polish MTB Dirt Jump riders.

And finally, the jewel in the crown for the 2012 season:

Creation of REVO full suspension system and developing for it an appropriate frame and the whole bike

Thanks to the wheel diameter (28’’) and the removal of superfluous tools, cycling for many miles on this bike is easy and much more comfortable than on a traditional mountain bike.

EARTH is a new group of full suspended bicycles from the KROSS Bikes 2012 col- lection. Their main feature is full shock-absorption (100mm) of the rear wheel. EARTH is an ideal machine for marathons and multi-stage races where good traction, comfort, and safety after many hours of cycling, are of key impor- tance. KROSS engineers worked for a year and a half on their own suspen- sion solution with a virtual pivoting point that reacts to even the smallest un- evenness in terrain. KROSS Earth is best suited to difficult and technical routes.

RVS TECHNOLOGY

Thanks to the meticulously chosen inclining lengths and angles of the links it works independently from the drive system (derailleur), as well as possessing optimal anti-compression. As a result, the suspension does not sink when we are peddling and at the same time reacts to even the smallest roughness in terrain. This effect is also gained thanks to a specially designed characteristic; in the starting phase of the deflection the forces acting on the damper are so large as to level out the resistance that is created by the gasket and hydraulic suppression.

cause the damper to compress. A new suspension by Kross. MAXIMUM EFFECTIVNESS WHEN PEDDLING Anti compression

MAXIMUM EFFECTIVNESS WHEN PEDDLING

Anti compression is a movement of the lower link as the suspension bends, which lengthens the distance between the center of the bottom bracket and the wheel axis. This results in a stretch- ing of the chain thus blocking further deflection of the bottom bracket.

SUSPENSION ISOLATED FROM THE DRIVING FORCE

The cam system separates the suspension from the drive system (derailleur) which makes re- duction of the “sway” effect easier. Riding on rough ground is smoother. This can be attributed to the declining anti-compression together with increasing deflection of the suspension.

MINIMALIZED PEDAL KICK

Thanks to the correct suspension angle, with a maximum deflection, the deviation of the crank- set is not much above 11.5 degrees. It is worth adding that most of the time the suspension works in the scope of a 60% jump, thus the pedal kickback does not exceed 9 degrees which is a value that is practically unnoticeable.

DOES NOT STIFFEN WHEN BRAKING

We have attained an 8 degree deviation in the clamping of the brake when there is a maximum suspension deflection. Thanks to this the suspension does not stiffen during braking.

CARBON TECHNOLOGY

This bicycle group belongs to the Race Pro Series category, which contains models equipped with advanced technology and the best components created to make riding on the most difficult terrain in the worst conditions easier. The top model, the Level A+, has been constructed over the years with the help of in the Kross Racing Team. Thanks to this, its geometry, design and the mass- durability ratio exceeded expectations every year. We use specially arranged carbon fibers to build frames. The fibers run in a strictly defined direction, depending on the forces acting on a given part at a given time. This is done in order to decrease mass while at the same time retaining durability and side stiffness. Optimally arranged fibers stifle vibrations of the highest frequency generated by the route on which we are cycling, as well as allowing the maximum transfer of force used to power the bicycle.

REAR FRAME TRIANGLE

Built using a single element. It was designed to guarantee the best side stiffness, while adding

to the comfort of the cycle. Thanks to this, Level A+ absorbs the highest frequency vibrations.

CHANGEABLE TUBE PROFILES

These have a unique design based on an advanced durability analysis, which is reflected in fault- less durability and the bike’s cycle capabilities.

PRESS FIT BB

A new wide bottom bracket stiffens the whole structure of the bottom bracket system. The bear- ings which are stowed inside increase peddling efficiency, decrease wear on the bearing and

create a better transfer of the driving force onto the wheel.

INTERNAL CABLES

Primarily influence the functionality, eliminating the risk of damaging and dirtying the cables. At the same time this also betters the visual effect of the frame.

In recent years opinions have surfaced that mountain bikes with 29 inch wheels are the future. There are a few concrete arguments that favor 29 over 26 inch wheels; cycling on a larger wheel allows for an easier and surer terrain overcome and the bicycle is much more stable. Larger tire-to-surface contact guarantees better traction, whereas a larger wheel circumference means that it is easier to maintain speed. Taller cyclists will also feel better on 29 inch wheels – the frame and equipment are adapted to larger wheel sizes. Is the 29er the size for you? Time to ride out into the wilderness and find out.

REAR DERAILLEUR

High quality Shimano derailleurs guarantee reliability, precision and low weight. Often they have a crucial effect on the entire drive operation.

2

FORK

Kross uses only proven forks of the best producers – Rock Shox, Magura, SunTour. These forks provide a high quality shock-absorption in all conditions as well as smooth and trouble-free work.

3

TIRES

The highest quality German Schwalbe tires ensure extra grip and long life. An im- portant advantage is the low rolling resistance that significantly affect the accelera- tion and in the end joy of riding.

4

FRAME

MTB frames are manufactured with use of the latest technology and materials such as carbon, aluminum and high quality steel. Thanks to that Kross bikes has a unique driving characteristics and one of a kind design.

5

THE ADVANTAGES OF 29 INCHES

A 29 inch wheel primarily gives a smoother ride with a mass that is not much bigger giving us a lot more pos-

Easier cycling over rough ground and increased stability when steering will suit the tastes of those who like to cycle on hard mountainous terrain.

We will also feel their superiority to classical tires on flat terrain thanks to the increased gyroscope effect, which makes maintaining a high speed easier. A larger wheel diameter also makes it easier to ride across holes in the road. Cycling is much more fluid than with 26 inch wheels. This allows to effectively ride down steep terrain (less resistance to wheel spin) as well as to cycle uphill on which the tire contact zone is very important.
