In their web, the Khan was spec'ed as a roadbike and they had another grouping just for Tri or TT spec'ed bikes.
A bit off topic but browsing over the issue of Triathlete magazine April 2005 edition, the Scott CR1 was included in their Tri-specific bike lists. So I wonder in this direction if other road specific bikes like the Kuota Khan can manage to have tri set-ups as well.
The Kuota brand is more well known in the Triathletic scene for quite sometime now, so maybe the misconception that all its models are tri specific. I was as surprised too to see the Kup Khan MTB while checking-out their website.
I was in passing able to read a reviews on the Kuota Khan but it was in Pez Cycling and they did give it a high rating. I could not be certain though if I recalled correctly that 15 lbs can be attained using light components..... this referal being includedin their report.
To just to add more to the off-topic...within the weight range too of the EC90 and Kestrel EMS pro carbon handlebars is the Kuota carbon drop which is also included with pics in the website. Weight of this bar is 190g.........First time I came across this dropbar actually and wonder too how it performs.
