The KAPH R6, the saddle of the Alberto Contador Foundation
The Fundación Alberto Contador and Essax have reached an agreement so that the artisan manufacturer from Alicante will provide saddles of its signature KAPH to the junior and U23 formations of the Kometa Cycling Team during the 2019 season. The two squads will ride their bikes specifically the R6 model, customized with the logo of the Foundation.
The R6 is specially conceived for the road, with a design that seeks to eradicate numbness and numbness of the perineal environment, while stimulating blood flow. A praise for comfort, an ally for the best performance in high competition with the latest generation of foams and gels. Available in two widths (130 or 142 mm), it is 280 mm long and weighs between 160 grams of the model with titanium rails and 140 grams with carbon.
KAPH is a pioneer in the bicycle saddle sector. Based in Sax (Alicante), KAPH is only distributed through the Internet, a direct sales channel that allows you to offer high quality products at very competitive prices, a bet that reinforces with a personalized contact with customers.
“KAPH is a brand with the DNA of Essax and Duopower that combines innovation, technology, development, the craftsmanship of being manufactured one by one in Alicante and all this combines with the distribution systems of the 21st century”, explains Joaquín Gil, its founder. Gil also highlights the firm commitment of the brand to maintain direct contact with customers: “This is something that until now did not exist in the saddle sector and is a very important added value of KAPH: you deal directly with the people involved in the manufacture of that saddle. They know how to advise, guide, solve your doubts… and all this in a fast, simple and direct way. We do not close the doors to queries via social networks, email… but KAPH’s telephone is always available to resolve doubts and provide the information our customers need. A unique personal treatment”.
Pedro Beneit, Francesc Bennassar, Gerard Bofill, Manuel Jesús Carrellán, Raúl García, Pablo Gutiérrez, Alejandro Luna, José Luis Medina, David Quevedo, Carlos Rodríguez, Juan José Rosal, Javier Serrano and Fernando Tercero, nine of them coming from the selection campus of La mafia se sienta a la mesa, make up the junior team for the next academic year.
The U23 squad is made up of Jorge Pastor, Sergio Hernández, Joan Martí Bennassar, Alejandro Regueiro, Carlos García, Sergio García, Alejandro Ropero, Jhon Stiven Ramírez, Arturo Grávalos, Eduardo Pérez-Landaluce, Yago Segovia, Alessio Acco and Álex Martín.
“Competition is always a demanding test bench and at the same time it requires the best material solutions at all times. Being able to count on saddles of a contrasted high quality such as those of KAPH gives us a plus in such a fundamental aspect. A brand committed to comfort and performance, with more than two decades of experience and the backing of many practitioners. In the Alberto Contador Foundation we are very grateful to Joaquín Gil for his support and trust”, says Francisco Javier Contador, general manager of the Foundation.
