The all-new KTM Kapoho 272 27.5+ Mens Full Suspension Mountain Bike ushers in a new breed of trail bikes with 27+/27Plus wheels. This wheel size allows for tyres over 2.50” wide, and helps the bike achieve the superior grip and traction of a fat bike whilst maintaining the manoeuvrability of a 650b wheel mountain bike. 

In addition to the 27+ wheel size, the Kapoho benefits from two further innovations. The new rear suspension system, the Straight Line Link (SLL) developed by KTM and the pioneering Boost technology. 

The SLL technology offers a very sensitive response to small bumps whilst still offering the ability to absorb the big hits and provide exceptional pedalling efficiency. The Boost technology with its 148mm wide hub gives a 21% stiffer rear wheel, and allows for shorter chainstays which means improved power transfer. 

The Kapoho is fitted with 130mm travel Fox 34 Float Performance forks and matched with a 125mm travel Fox Float Elite Performance rear shock. Both shocks have remote lockouts for immediate lockout on the fly. 

It has Shimano Deore XT M8000 gear components with 22 gears thanks to a wide range 11-42T cassette, and powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes. The Sun Ringle Duro 40 Expert wheelset is tubeless ready and fitted with 2.80” wide Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres. 

An all-important Kindshoc LEV-DX dropper post is fitted so that the saddle height can easily be adjusted to suit the terrain and has a Selle Italia Nepal saddle attached to it. The Kapoho 273 also benefits from an aftermarket Ritchey WCS Trail handlebars and stem.
