Corsair introduces the Toro and Richard Fert!
We saw it at the Taipei Cycle Show 2014. We also wondered if this unique design performs as good as it looks – check out the super short seat tube. Like the Imperium and Konig, the Toro is a dual role frame. For those who are into 4X or Dual Slalom racing, we were told the CNC'd yoke and bottom bracket and tapered head tube were optimized to snap gates and leap doubles. For the dirt and park riders, the Toro also features adjustable 12mm dropouts that allow you to run a single speed set-up. The Toro has been battle tested by pro racer Mikey Haderer (USA), up-and-coming dirt jumper Richard Fert (France), and slope slayer Nicolas Rouze (France).
For a first hand look at just how fun the Toro can be, here's Richard Fert shredding the dirt on a Toro. Looks good to us.
And here are the numbers:
– 6061 Aluminum Frame
– 135x12mm Rear Axle
– Singlespeed or Geared
– Integrated Seat Post Clamp
– Available in Blue or Green
– Arriving in some parts of Asia from September 2014
