Whether you opt for a single speed, 3 speeds or 8 speeds model, whether you are commuting to work or just enjoy a Sunday afternoon ride in the park or through the city, the KDF1 is primed for performance, comfort and versatility. To put all these factors together in the same bicycle, we found the perfect blend between bamboo treatment, frame geometry and the components that the frame is equipped with.
Our biggest bamboo frame only weighs 1.8 Kg.
The light bamboo frame that dampens most of the road vibrations, offering you a smooth ride, is complimented with powerful hydraulic disk brakes that stop in any weather. It is therefore a commuting pro if you want it to be, or the perfect fitness companion on road and gravel trails.
Equipped with wide handle bars, ergonomic grips and Continental Ride Tour Puncture-ProTection, just to name a few, this bicycle will surprise you with a truly enjoyable experience for many years to come.
When we designed this model, among the above attributes, we also had in mind the following:
This first model was the work of about three years in designing, testing and development. When it comes to bamboo treatment and the manufacturing process, this model laid the foundation for all the models to come after. This is why the model’s name is KDF1
