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?



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. We love discs but we know there are riders out there that want cantilevers and we support you! We believe in the canti brake. Why change, when you can choose? 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.

At KindHuman Bicycles we allow every customer the ability to custom build their dream bike. That means selecting the components and fit that work for you, your body and your wallet. The result is a final finished product that’s right for you to ride, every time. Begin by selecting either a frameset or complete bicycle, your size and color before completely customizing your ride! We offer Complimentary Fit & Build Consultations for all customers. If you would like help with fit or selecting the right options for you - call us at 1.855.922.5463 or email us at by clicking the button below.

Fit & Build Link

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 Mavic 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.
Most stock rim brake ‘cross bikes are built with cantilever brakes and that’s what most riders and racers want. They offer more mud clearance, low weight and decent stopping power. That said, the case can be made for linear pull “V-brakes” as a slightly more powerful stopping brake, that offer simple on the fly adjustment at the expense of mud clearance.
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.

  1. best handling CX bike Review by Ningman

    I first tried this bike at Cycle-Smart CX race. I have been racing cross since '95 and this is the best handling cross bike I have ridden. It is nimble like a road bike and with the high bottom bracket it feels like you can hop anything. The staff at KH can help you pick out the bike the bike of your dreams and it arrives ready to ride. I sized one size down from what I would normally and went with a little longer stem. Fit is perfect, the TRP canti brakes are awesome that the stiff frame helps to keep the brakes from flexing.

  2. I love this bike. It does everything! Review by Tim Gagne

    I own a 2014 Kudu with cantis. I have to say that I continue to be pleased with this bike three years later, and 15,000 miles later.

    I have used the bike to race cyclocross, training rides, club rides, endurance gravel rides, gravel races, and even century road rides. the bike just does everything well. the handling is spot on, it is stable on the road at speed, and is comfortable enough to be on for 6+ hour events.

    The quality of the bike is on par with any high end carbon bike. I have had no issues with the quality of the build, or the finish. the paint is holding up well three years later.

    I cant see myself buying a new bike anytime soon.

    the customer service at Kindhuman is possibly the best I have seen in the industry. over the last few years I have inquired about fenders, a spare dropout, and some miscellaneous inquiries. I get responses quickly and the team at KH is very knowledgeable and friendly.

  3. Corner Carving Machine!! Review by Phil

    This is my all time favorite bike I have ever owned. The geometry of this bike is perfect. Because of the geometry this bike carves corners on any cross course better than any other bike I have ever ridden. This is the one bike I own that I absolutely could not live without. It does everything I have ever asked of it better than any other bike I have ever ridden. Not to mention it looks amazing as well. I constantly get complimented on the color and look of my bike. If you are going to buy just one bike this is the one to buy!! (Posted on 7/26/17)
