Corratec, the Bavarian manufacturer of championship-winning bikes, has just made itself available to a much broader consumer base here in the Metro. Present at the launch was CEO and founder of Corratec, Konrad Irlbacher, who brought along a whole lineup of bikes to show off to the crowd.
Founded in 1990, Corratec brings together a passion for cycling with German engineering, resulting in bikes that perform unlike any other. Innovations such as the Diamant Slick tires, and the superbow frames in the 90s brought the brand into the public’s consciousness, and they haven’t stopped. Corratec has developed the Inside Link damping system that gives you a rear-suspension bike that has the performance of a hardtail. Clever geometry virtually eliminates bouncing when you really start to crank, yet still allows the suspension to work as designed. No more tweaking and messing with the shock depending on the terrain. All you have to do is go, and you’ll be ready to take on anything the road has to throw at you. You get more traction, more sensitivity, and most importantly, more speed.
