The international “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014” is granted to the new KOGA Kimera Road Premium. The innovative design and attention to detail won over the judges who were delighted to receive 4.815 entries from 53 countries in this year’s competition. The awards ceremony for the prestigious seal of quality that is recognized worldwide takes place on 7. July 2014 in Essen, Germany as part of the traditional Red Dot gala. The Kimera Road Premium will then be put on display during a four-week special exhibition in the red dot design museum.
The Koga designers have achieved a drastic improvement in comfort and aerodynamics in the new Kimera without sacrificing the bikes much-acclaimed stiffness/weight relationship. The visibly slimmer tubes and frame and fork integrated brakes minimize drag and give the Kimera a remarkable clean design. At the same time, the Kimera retains its own distinctive look through the slightly curved top tube and the Monostay seat stay.
The new Kimera has inner cable routing with the cable guide being compatible with the Shimano Di2. The drop outs are made from carbon to reduce weight and ensure the optimal contact with the frame. Furthermore, the Kimera has a PressFit bottom bracket, a tapered head tube and replaceable derailleur hanger. The Kimera is equipped with a lightweight racing saddle with carbon frame and a 27.2mm seatpost for excellent cushioning. Reinforced with this upgrade the Kimera strengthens further its segment leadership.
The new KOGA Kimera is available at the KOGA dealer from March 2014 in two versions: The Kimera Road Premium and the Kimera Road Prestige. For more information please visit www.koga.com
