Karl Platt, a five-time Cape Epic winner, has become a fixture in mountain biking. Since the end of his professional career, Platt has remained active in cycling. He races the Masters. “King Karl”, as he is lovingly called by his fans, lives with his family very near SIGMA headquarters and rides his favourite trails in the Palatinate Forest as often as he can.
Karl Platt has been part of the SIGMA family for 15 years. “As a brand ambassador, I want to actively promote the SIGMA brand,” says Platt. “I have done a lot of cycling in my day and have lots of ideas for how we can improve biking for pros and amateurs. I am looking forward to integrating those ideas into new SIGMA products.”
