Today Curve Cycling is excited to announce that Kristof Allegaert has joined the Curve squad.

If you’re familiar with ultra-endurance cycling, Kristof needs no introduction. Kristof has won the world’s premier sealed-road bikepacking race, The Transcontinental, three times. He won the 2015 edition of the 9,200km Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme race. He was leading the inaugural Indian Pacific Wheel Race in 2017 after a brutal 5,000 km showdown with Mike Hall, when the race was cancelled after Mike Hall was tragically killed by a motorist. Kristof’s performances have astounded dot-watchers as much as his opponents.

While the mild-mannered Belgian might play down his achievements, he just doesn’t know how to lose unsupported ultra-endurance events. His style is characterised by a relentless drive to move forward, with an impressive moving average speed coupled with very little rest. He needs a bike he can trust and Curve bikes have been proven in the battlefield of unsupported ultra-endurance racing. From the deserts of Australia to the mountains of the Tour Divide, Curve bikes are designed to perform in the toughest events on the planet. The fit for Kristof is perfect. “I’m excited to ride Curve because they make the bikes I like to ride. It’s back to basics with solid bikes that you can trust under all conditions”, Kristof said.

While Kristof isn’t focussed on racing right now he has a full calendar of exciting adventures planned, with a possible record attempt on the horizon. “There’s a tough, well contested record that I am interested to challenge. The record was achieved with support but I think I might attempt it unsupported. I still have some more research to do first”, Kristof said. We can’t say much more right now, but we are super excited to see what Kristof attacks next.

Quite a coup getting Kristof on a Belgie. If he had ink it woulda been a coup d’étatt.

Kristof is an inspiration. His message is simple….“love cycling”. It speaks volumes for Curve that Kristof has placed his trust in you. The new bike is fantastic.

Once that air has been let out, they are comfy. On the rough bitumen roads I smiled and wondered how I have ridden the kilometres I have without these tyres or wheel size. There was no jarring or discomfort felt in the hands through the handlebars. By the end of the series I had no issues ie: numb hands or fingers A lot can be said for the bike (Curve Cycling GXR – Kevin of Steel) and setup/posture as well. The tyres provided a comfortable ride but not so comfortable as to give you the feeling of being delicate. Instead they give you a feeling of confidence and reliability.

Friend of Curve, Ali Jones, took Kevin of Steel for a solo spin down the centre of Tasmania. What she found was not picture perfect national parks, but small towns, warm conversations, and a blissful, tired satisfaction brought on by long summer days mastering gravel climbs and descents.
