Look KG381 Team

August 25, 2011

Picked up my new (well second-hand but in excellent condition) Look KG381 Team with full Dura-Ace 7800 groupset and new Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels. Can hardly wait to get out for a decent ride on this full-carbon weapon and see what it can do.

Trigon drops and stem combo

Here’s a sneak peek at my brand new carbon fibre Trigon drops. All up this awesome bit of kit is a meagre 370g.

But never mind the weight savings, it just looks plain awesome. I dig the bulging muscular look of them and the finish is second to none.

I’ve been running full carbon fibre Trigon straight-blade forks for close to year now and they’ve never let me down. So it’s fair to say I’m a bit of a Trigon fan. In the area of carbon fibre composites, Trigon’s finish is the best I’ve seen. I’ve taken the bike for a quick spin and these bars are very comfortable. I’m going to swap them back for my Nitto B125 bars and save them for racing.

Although I trust Trigon’s products I’d rather run the steel Nittos which will take more of the force in the event of a crash during day-to-day riding.
