First look: Qoroz titanium bikes
By Matthew Cole | Saturday, January 23, 2010 8.00am
Qoroz are a UK-based company who build road and mountain bikes from titanium, with a choice of both stock and custom-built frames.
As well as sponsoring the SouthWestBikeAcademy road race team, Qoroz also supply Cervelo Test Team rider Daniel Lloyd with a titanium hardtail for his off-road training.
The main updates in the company’s 2010 range include fresh graphics and logos, and new wheel decals which are due to be released imminently.
Let’s have a closer look at the bikes and updates for this year:
The prototype Race Won is an all-out racing machine – hence the name – and has been designed using feedback from the team. This example has an integrated seatpost, which will be available on custom-built frames. Production models will come with a semi-integrated seatpost. Prices start at £1,225 for just the frame, and complete builds for £4,565 with Shimano Dura-Ace groupset.
The Road Won is a more relaxed affair, with massive mile munching riders in mind. The ideal sportive bike, it has a longer wheelbase, curved seatstays and a slightly longer head tube to reduce shoulder/wrist pressure to prevent fatigue. RRP is £1,050 for the frame, £4,590 for the complete build.
Qoroz have increased the wheelbase on the 2010 Mountain Won to give increased power transfer when climbing and greater stability when descending. The lightweight titanium frame allows for plenty of flickability on technical sections too. The seatpost diameter has been increased too. It's £1,050 for the frame, and full builds can be arranged too.
Dubbed as the ultimate travelling companion, the Freedom Won runs on 20in wheels and can be broken down into two parts to fit into its own hard travelling case. A complete build with Shimano Dura-Ace groupset costs £3,990. For more information on the Qoroz bikes, head to qoroz.co.uk.
