Now in its fourth season of tearing up ‘cross courses all over the world, our UCI Approved KÜDÜ has grown to become one of the first names in cyclo-cross. Built using oversized, lightweight, high-modulus carbon fiber with a true cyclo-cross race geometry, this animal is nimble yet balanced for the toughest courses on earth. And of course, we offer it in both disc and canti. We’re not here to dictate what you should ride, we’re here to supply you with what you want to ride! Why change, when you can choose?

MEET YOUR KUDU THRU-AXLE DISC


PRODUCT  STORY
 

Silly light, stupid stiff, excitingly agile. The KÜDÜ is designed to be a top-tier racer for professional cyclo-cross stars and mud lovers alike. Designed using high-modulus, tube-to-tube construction, oversized tube profiles and geometry suited for the toughest courses in the world. The insanely oversized tubing of the front triangle pairs nicely with the beefy fork for exceptionally precise steering. When you factor in the KÜDÜ's aggressive geometry, this beast rips through mud, gravel and any kind of conditions with incredible acceleration, committed handling and dedicated agility. The traditional, tall triangle design makes suitcasing your bike simple and shouldering a breeze. We are one of the few remaining manufacturers who still offer a performance, carbon cantilever option for cyclo-cross. With that said, we love discs and they are a great option for many riders, riding styles and terrain. When we developed the KÜDÜ, we said, “Why change, when you can choose?” That’s why our 2017 KÜDÜ ‘crosser is updated with Shimano E-thru thru-axle system front and rear for unsurpassed stiffness and braking precision. Our UCI Approved ‘crosser is also equipped with fender mounts for those wet and grizzly training days. This bike truly can't stop and won't stop.
 

The bike of choice for Master National Champion Adam Myerson, the Cycle-Smart Grassroots Team and the most decorated American male cyclo-cross racer in history - Jonathan Page.

Fit & Build Link


STEP 1 // CHOOSE A COMPLETE BICYCLE OR FRAMESET
Begin your Custom Built Bicycle journey by selecting either a frameset or complete bicycle. You will then unlock handpicked options from manufacturers like Shimano, SRAM, Ritchey Logic and Stan's NoTubes among others to build your dream bike.

 
Fit is key for performance and comfort. Please refer to our Geometry Chart below for sizing information. If you have any questions regarding the perfect size frame for you, do not hesitate to contact us and our team of professional fitters will be happy to set up a Complimentary Fit & Build Consultation with you.
 
Build your KÜDÜ with the groupset of your choice. From 1x11 and 2x11-speeds, we offer the best selection of groupsets from Shimano and SRAM. With KindHuman Bicycles you'll always get full-system spec meaning we don't swap out parts with lower cost options to meet price points or to inflate our margin. If you order a bike with Shimano Ultegra each and every part of your gruppo will be built with Shimano Ultegra, period. Our full-system spec approach equates to better quality and better value for riders like you.  
 
This is where you truly make your Custom Built bike - your own. Traditionally, when you purchase a bike off the showroom floor, the bike is built to cater to the average rider. At KindHuman Bicycles, we know there is no such thing!
 
Choosing between a single or double-chainring for cyclo-cross presents two very distinct options. Each with their own benefits and drawbacks. With a traditional double chainring like we offer from Shimano, you have a wider range of gears and is more versatile for on-road usage. While the SRAM 1X chainring setups are limited in gear range but reduce weight and all but eliminate any front derailleur shifting problems during muddy, messy cross races. If you’re building the KÜDÜ as a gravel/adventure bike that you can race with - we recommend the Shimano double chainring setup. If you’re building the KÜDÜ as a race bike that you can take on adventures - choose SRAM.
 
While there are many cassette rations available on the market today, we like to keep things simple for our customers. We’ve done our research and when it comes to cassette rations, we know what our customers want and need. That’s why we offer three of the most often purchased and used cassette ratios by real riders - just like you.
 
While other companies stock cheaper “proprietary” components, we offer a choice of the best quality, best performing products from Ritchey Logic. When you Custom Build your KindHuman Bicycle, you will have no added costs for replacement parts or upgrades. You get the right components that fit your body, your performance needs and your budget - right from the start.
 
Your handlebar shape plays a huge role in how you control your bike, how it handles, steers and your overall fit. We offer three great handlebar shapes from Ritchey Logic!
 
Handlebar width plays a huge role in comfort and handling. While other companies stock their bikes to meet the needs of the “average” rider, we know that our riders come in all different shapes and sizes. You’re anything but average and you deserve to be treated as such! When selecting your handlebar width, it’s a good idea to understand your AC joint measurement. Your AC joint is the area on your shoulder where your collarbone (clavicle) and acromion (shoulder blade) meet. If you measure across the raised, bony protrusions on the front of your shoulder - you have a good idea of your AC joint measurement. Add 2cm to this number and that should give you a good idea what your handlebar width should be.
 
Stem length is key to how your bike fits and steers. We do our best to fit our riders on a frame that will keep them on a 110cm stem or higher but we realize that is not always possible. When in doubt, we recommend starting with a 110cm stem as it is a good, neutral starting position.
 
Finding a saddle can be a difficult task but we allow you to choose the saddle that’s right for you - right from the start instead of using a sub-optimal stock option or paying more to replace yours after your purchase. We offer three distinct saddle shapes from Ritchey Logic designed by Tom Ritchey himself, a historic name in cycling who has been creating comfortable, performance saddles since 1994!
 
We offer two options for handlebar tape. Our base option is Shimano’s Pro brand Digital Carbon which is a standard foam option similar to most cork tapes but it utilizes a comfortable, textured anti-slip pattern that our customers love. For those riders looking for a little extra padding, the Lizard Skins DSP 2.5 is a solid option. It featured a tacky, shock absorbing material for extra comfort and control. The Lizard Skins DSP is also the lightest bar tape on the market at only 56grams including bar end plugs.
 
It’s often said that upgrading your wheels is the first and best upgrade you can make to your bike. At KindHuman Bicycles, we feel like you shouldn’t be forced to comply with sub-par wheels only to pay for an upgrade a couple months later! Our base model wheels are superior to most brands stock options which is a powerful value added proposition. From there, we offer a range of wheel options to suit your performance demands and budgetary needs from Stan’s NoTubes.
 
Tires play a huge role in your bikes overall ride feel and quality especially when it comes to cyclo-cross! We offer a neutral but versatile tread patterns that are well-suited to a myriad of course conditions from Maxxis and Challenge in standard folding clincher and open tubular offerings.
