Kuota Kryon review

Italians are as much renowned for superb bikes as they are for pasta and espressos, so we were keen to put the Kuota Kryon through its paces

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Kryon is a good bike and is well made with neat lines and internal cable routing. But it just didn’t excite me. You can climb aboard a similarly priced Scott Addict 30 and instantly appreciate the stiff bottom bracket and lively handling. The reversible seatpost is a useful feature and the spec is great for the price. As is the case with many bikes, to fully realise the Kryon’s potential you should upgrade the wheels

Reasons to buy

Reasons to avoid

When compared to the likes of Bianchi and Pinarello, Kuota is a brand that doesn’t have huge recognition in the UK, so consequently you could be forgiven for not knowing it is Italian. Its bikes are used by the Androni Giocattoli Pro Continental team and previously by Ag2r La Mondiale.
