Upgrade has revealed some of the highlights that dealers can expect to see at CoreBike 2009 later this month, including the launch of Kenesis UK’s 10th anniversary frame and DMR Team’s Transition Bikes.
Kuk (Kinesis UK) will showcase its ‘Decade’ range at Core, featuring three frames that celebrate the firms 10 years in the business. Those frames include the ‘Virtue’ – a hardtail Tange-Prestige tubed MTB frame featuring Swopout rear dropouts. ‘Convert2’ is based on the popular Kuk Racelight T frame with altered geometry and sold as a frameset. Finally, the ‘Tripster’ is a high-end commuter frameset with carbon forks, disc mounts and more. These stand-apart frames will feature new graphics and will be on show at Upgrade’s stand.
Core will also see the launch of brand new DMR Transition Bikes – the first outing for the bike. Based around the new aftermarket Transition frame this pro level bike has been heavily tested and the final bike is very similar to the custom machine currently ridden by DMR rider Sam Reynolds. DMR Bikes will also be found at the Upgrade stand in the Hungaroring Room at Core.
Upgrade will also be bringing Micki Kozuscheck, founder and chief design brain behind the Lezyne brand, to Core for the full low down on the new 2009 range. Kozuscheck will be joined by full production versions of the Lezyne floor pumps and the Lezyne hydration packs.
