What do you think about the Krypton GF?

“The Krypton GF is by far the most fun bike I have ever ridden. The quickness and responsiveness of the bike around tight corners and when standing is remarkable. The handling and control when descending, thanks to the disc brakes and bike geometry, feels extremely precise and safe. If I would have to choose only one bike, Krypton would be a top candidate. The geometry also makes it a bike I can comfortably ride for 6h+. For me, it's a bike I really look forward to get out and ride.”

How is the Krypton compared to the Gallium Classic that you rode in 2019?

“When comparing the Krypton GF to the Gallium, I am extremely impressed by the Krypton GF. I expected the GF to feel more relaxed and slow, but I can hardly feel the difference. When it comes to handling, descending, responsiveness, climbing and playfulness, I find the Krypton GF better than the Gallium. On comfort, I think they are both very good. “

Ready for Gravels

When autumn really kicks in, Hans Christian is changing to 32mm gravel tires. This makes him enjoy the woods and endless gravel roads around Oslo. 

The GF gives him spectacular experiences, both on and off-road.
