Kross (Spain) – Press Release: The Polish bike company KROSS has signed the Spanish pro mountain biker, two times trials world champion and bike adventurer David Cachon.
From the bike season 2018 on, the versatile athlete and Drop Off Guinness World Record holder will represent the Polish brand. David will closely cooperate with KROSS in terms of product-development and is planning to realize a lot of exciting bike travel projects in the joint venture.
As diverse as his riding experience, is David’s choice of bikes. He will shred with a customized version of KROSS’s new MOON 3.0 Enduro mountain bike, the Vento 7.0 Carbon road bike and a brand new full-suspension e-mountain bike, which is to be released this season.
David, can you give more insight on why you specifically did choose those bikes?
This year I have prepared new adventures, that will take me to explore incredible places, with new terrains where each type of bicycle will play a vital role. I will experience different types of riding like cliffs near to the sea with the new Moon, tackle the streets of Manhattan with the Vento 7.0 and climb more than 1000 stairs with the new KROSS e-mountain bike to reach an incredible location that was used in the making of Game of Thrones.
Which other projects do you have in the pipeline, what can people expect?
For the moment, it looks like I have some fun trips coming up. Over the next months I am going to Formentera Island, Cáceres, Malta, Asturias, NYC, Morocco and Mongolia. But more adventures are planned! All those trips are about as much riding as possible and a mix of different styles of cycling and for sure about incredible places to ride bicycles, mountains, the sea and idyllic landscapes.
A Spanish rider signed with a Polish bike brand. What do you expect from KROSS or from the cooperation?
For me it is incredibly awesome to be able to collaborate with a brand as interesting and important as KROSS. I hope to contribute with my experience as a rider and a good handful of crazy adventures.
What are you most excited about?
I really want to test the new bicycles. I've already been able to ride the Moon 3.0 and it's an absolutely destroyer! It rides like a bullet, it is light and pedals efficiently, but friend... when the trail begins to descend and its suspension starts to work... it's like a DH rig tucked inside an Enduro bike. Amazing, I love how it works. I am excited!
KROSS Brand Manager Kris Kurowski is equally excited about the collab: “We are happy to have David onboard. We already have a UCI team winning medals but David will focus on creating creative content with his wild adventures. KROSS is a brand built on passion and quality – so he fits perfectly. It’s a challenge to find such a multi-talented rider. He will be rocking our newest enduro, road and electric bikes. For KROSS, this as a unique opportunity to collaborate on the development of future products. We can’t wait to begin the first project.”
