Slopestyle is perhaps the most exciting new cycling discipline seen in years. When creating the KÃ¶nig, our goal was to channel the energy of a great run into the engineering and style of our slopestyle frame. Getting off the ground, landing in one piece (at any angle) and getting the bike where you need it to be in a split second all require that a bike be light, strong and maneuverable – three things that define the KÃ¶nig.
The KÃ¶nig is far more than a kick-ass looking bike. For starters, its dual link rear suspension system has been meticulously designed to optimize performance and to resist all torque and lateral loading. The frameâ€™s washer-less pivot system and Sure-Lock pivots are an easy-to-service breakthrough sure to stoke mechanics and riders alike. Getting the details right from the start is important to us – from recessed shock mounting hardware to the KÃ¶nigâ€™s super high-end 12 layer paint process, we have made every effort to ensure the KÃ¶nigâ€™s place at the top.
A summary of the KÃ¶nigâ€™s features include:
â€¢Low mass swingarm for highest performance
â€¢Low 2.5:1 stroke ratio for tune-ability and durability
â€¢Low center of gravity and stand-over height
â€¢Adjustable headtube angle for tune-ability
â€¢CenterBalance design for superior handling
â€¢Replaceable engineered fit drop-outs in Maxle, Horizontal or 10mm QR style
â€¢Precision engineering and design
For dirt-jumpers ready to go to full suspension, riders with big bikes looking for something smaller and more maneuverable, or for elite slopestyle athletes, the KÃ¶nig is purpose designed to be the ultimate bike.
The Corsair KÃ¶nig will be available in October of 2007. If you are interested in learning more about our slopestyle bike, a detailed technical explanation of our frame design has been posted on our website at www.corsairbikes.com.
