Kuota Kaiman Aero Carbon Road Bike
These are ultra-rare carbon bikes with very low standovers and all important short top-tubes for the ultimate, lightweight kids carbon road bikes. Be prepared to ballast-up on raceday, these are lightweight at just 1060g for the XS frameset.
(For reference, the rider in the photos is139cm tall with an inside leg of 64cm, riding the XS frame size)
A child-suitable full carbon aero frameset with the latest design features, suitable for either Shimano, SRAM GXP or threaded Square-Taper cranksets (with the correct BB converters) so riders as young as 7 have taken the Kaiman to the top step of the podium.
The Kuota Kaiman has superb technology and is unbeatable value. However don’t be fooled by its price. The Kaiman benefits from technology which filters down from high end projects including features such as 1 ½” headset, versatile press fit BB, full carbon steerer and Di2/eTap compatibility, which makes the Kaiman future proof and a perfect chassis for even top end groupsets.
The Kaiman is extremely versatile with a reversible aero seat post creating a very short cockpit if required and is therefore a suitable option for even the shortest of riders. Compatible with Shimano Di2, Campag EPS, SRAM eTap and mechanical groupsets.
