Flanders is a place famous across the cycling world – as is the Koppenberg, one of Belgium’s most notorious hills. Combine the two and you’re left with one hell of a reputation… And boy oh boy, does this new frame from Flanders Cycles live up to that. Introducing the new Koppenberg.
A complete new model for 2021, the Koppenberg embraces all the new technology you would expect in the ever evolving cycling industry. Resulting in some major changes from our previous Zero. Including a refined new monocoque Aero frame and fork with increased stiffness and ride quality . Integrated one piece Aero handlebar and stem with full internal cable routing. We have also increased tyre clearance to allow up to a 32c tyre honouring our Belgian heritage.
Running 160mm rotors front and back to maximise braking power while maintaining tyre traction. Thru axle are 100x12mm front and 142x12mm rear to increase lateral stiffness and because of the safety benefits and reliability when coupled with disc brakes. Complete internal cable routing makes for a clean design and will maintain optimal gear shifting in adverse condition.
Increases in sizing options now give you a huge range – 46,49, 52, 54, 56, 58. Along with all these changes Flanders still offer custom builds which include stem/bar and crank options at no extra charge. All of their build options come with tubeless wheels. While still offering SRAM Force 22, Force AXS and Red AXS group set options. This year they are also offering SRAM Force1 1x drive system with wide range cassettes to give a cleaner simple drive system.
