2015 EKN Chassis Showroom: CRG

Famed brand continues to evolve, beginning with new era in North America

EKN is excited to offer a new editorial series for our readers – our ‘Chassis Showroom’. Over the next couple of months, we will be highlighting many chassis manufacturers and the importers / dealers who are responsible for making these karts available to the North American karting community.  The market is filled with models for all levels of competition, from four-cycle to shifterkarts, and the new offerings are really great looking.

CRG Nations logoImporter: CRG Nations
Announced in December 2014, the K1 Group became the exclusive importer and distributer of the CRG brand for the entire North America. With that, CRG Nations was born. Working within the indoor karting industry for the past 11 years and the outdoor industry through its K1 RaceGear apparel brand, CRG Nations gained a wealth of knowledge that will extend to the competition side of the industry, bringing a structure and consistency to CRG dealers throughout North America. CRG USA was named the official national race team, and the 2015 season is full of new ventures for the brand here in the United States and Canada.

The CRG brand is among the leaders in the karting industry. Its history is filled with success, featuring countless victories obtained on the circuits all over the world, producing some of the top drivers ever in their path toward Formula 1. CRG was founded in 1986, building on the successes of the Kali-Kart company dating back to the 1970s. CRG has accumulated nearly 40 world championship victories and titles, along with numerous European championships. The same can be said for the brand here in the United States and Canada.

The premier chassis for TaG competition is the KT2 (70/CH/20). The latest homologated chassis is built with a 30mm frame rail and all of the updated CRG components. The chassis comes standard with magnesium components and features a 15mm narrowere rear end that provides better stability under braking and enhanced acceleration off the coner. Additionally, the new VEN09/10 brake system provides better pedal feel and features a 189mm brake rotor to make 100% contact with the brake pad. After months of testing with the factory CRG drivers, the KT2 is the result and has proven successful in the single-speed categories.

CRG has built a strong following in the 4-Cycle market, and the Tork chassis is the perfect solution. Designed specifically for lower horsepower engines, the 28mm frame has garnered a number of victories and championships in 4-Cycle competition throughout North America. The Tork requires very little tuning as it is a proven winner right out of the box using the stock set-up. It is a great chassis to get into the sport with a brand new, respected brand at just over $3,000 price point.

In recent months, the Mini X2 1010 chassis has garnered top results in Cadet categories. The chassis scored victories at both the Rotax Challenge of the Americas and Florida Winter Tour, earning the Mini Max championship at both programs. The frame is based off years of development, and comes with the same front end Sniper alignment system and 50mm axle you find on the full size CRG chassis, but with 17mm spindles.
