ROAD REBEL 2022, THE ALL NEW KING OF SHIFTER KART CHASSIS

09 January 2022














CIK-FIA 2022-2023

HOMOLOGATION
Although the approval of the Road Rebel 2022 (number 002-CH-20) has the years 2022-2023 as the deadline, the change of regulation imposed by the CIK-FIA provides that the approvals last indefinitely as long as an annual fee is paid.

KZ

CONFIGURATION
The chassis analysed in our review is intended exclusively for shifter classes (KZ, KZ2 …) with a manual gearbox, but where necessary it is also available in a single-speed version (Direct Drive).

32

TUBES DIAMETER
The body of the CRG Road Rebel 2022 is completely composed of tubes with a diameter of 32 mm and a thickness of 2 mm.

MANUAL OR ROBOT

WELDING
The Road Rebel 2022 is welded by experienced technicians or by robotic machines in continuous arc mode.

MAGNESIUM

ACCESSORIES
The standard accessories are made of magnesium. CRG also supplies carbon fibre accessories such as the floor tray and the gear lever for those who wish to reduce the overall weight of their karts.

Two years after the last update concerning one of the most successful chassis in the shifter classes ("Under examination - CRG Road Rebel, the chassis of champions - Update 2020") we returned to CRG, Giancarlo Tinini's historic Italian company, to analyse the 2022 version of the Road Rebel. A chassis that absolutely needs no introduction and that aims to be once again one of the main protagonists of the gear classes thanks to the introduction of innovative technical solutions such as the new VEN13 braking system, also known as ABA (Adaptive Brake Assistant), conceived, designed and manufactured entirely by the technical team of the Lonato del Garda company. This is accompanied by well-known solutions such as the axle bearing flange that allows you to change the kart's wheelbase in a few moments, and other innovations such as the KG 507 fairings kit with front spoiler 508.

The health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the CIK-FIA to extend the approvals expiring in 2020 to the whole of 2021. And at the end of the 2021 season CRG presented the Road Rebel 2022, one of the most used and winning chassis in the classes dedicated to shifter karts, but which is available in both versions (shifter and also direct drive) with approval number 002-CH-20, valid for the years 2022-2023.
