Alpha Karting is ready to roar with the new version of its leading racing model, the Tiger Black. Top performance, easy adjustments and… track results in no time!
The European KZ2 Vice-champion company based in France draws on the experience of the 2014 racing season to improve its leading chassis, used in TaG classes as well as in KFJ, KF, KZ and Rotax DD2.
The “new and improved” Tiger Black retains the same shape and materials as always, but comes equipped with brand new components and modified eccentrics on the C bends to improve camber and caster regulation. The Tiger Black also renews its guarantee of quick and easy set-up adjustments, to reach top performance standards on the fly.
The latest version of the Tiger Black is equipped with a wholly redesigned brake system for enhanced performance. Of the two options available for the KZ model, Standard and Racing, the first one has been optimized to reduce run-out and guarantee more precise braking dynamics. Instead, the KF model comes with a modified and improved caliper/disc assembly. Looking to the rear end of both models, there are new bearing housings for improved traction and the entire axle bearing/housing assembly has been reworked to a lower weight. Finally, the exhaust support is also new.
The various models of the Tiger Black have been tailored to the performance needs and technical characteristics of the racing classes they are used in. The model for the KFJ, KF and TAG classes guarantees a strong front-end take in corner-entry and allows the rear end to be especially “free” in corner-exit. This is of paramount importance for non-shifter engines, allowing them to rise to the high rev end more easily and reach the rev range that offers the maximum torque couple more quickly. The KZ model, instead, offers improved corner-exit traction that allows for optimal discharge of the extremely high torque.
Alpha Karting has already given proof of the quality of these improvements with the results obtained in the first international events of the 2015 season: Marco Zanchetta‘s second place finish in the Lonato Winter Cup, the title of X30 Master Vice-champion, and Iglesias’ excellent first round in the KZ European Championship.
