With the Hammerhead, CKR returns to a traditional, proven design from the legacy of on-track success within the CKR chassis line. A mixture of 30 / 32 mm frame tubing creates a progressive handling chassis, that reacts slightly more subtly than the Barracuda or Blue Shark designs with similar engine packages. As a result, the Hammerhead is ideal for drivers that may be transitioning to 100cc or TaG categories from other karts, and provides excellent handling on both low-grip and high-grip track situations.
Like the Barracuda or Blue Shark, the Hammerhead is designed with both KZ (shifter kart or gearbox) and KF (TaG or single-speed) engines in mind, and can excel in both applications.
Each CKR chassis is hand - TIG welded by CKR's experienced artisans, in an effort to increase the life of the chassis over traditional welding practices. 3 bearing hangars and cassettes accompany the kart, allowing the Hammerhead to properly handle the intense torsion and grip generated by high-horsepower engines such as a KZ ICC or ROK Senior TaG engine, as example.
With the Sniper SA1 alignment system as standard, adjusting chassis settings on the Hammerhead is made simple and customize-able to the driver's preference. Fully-adjustable hubs, bearings, and dual-piston braking system allow for fine-tuning of the karts handling and performance.
The Hammerhead comes standard with aluminum components, but the bearing cassettes, sprocket, brake, and wheel hubs can be upgraded to lightweight gold magnesium if desired for added visual appeal and performance. A lightweight and pliable IMAF F6 fiberglass seat completes the chassis order, available in various sizes, while F6 Rombo Silver or H7 Modulate seats are also available.
When it comes to slowing down, the Hammerhead provides outstanding performance, with full hydraulic brakes on the front and rear for KZ, or on the rear for the KF application. Brake rotors are available in traditional steel or ceramic brake rotors and pads, and are the modern VEN 11 system.
Note that some TaG applications may not allow the use of front brakes, only one in the rear.

Shipping & Seat Sizing
The Hammerhead is available with the IMAF F6 fiberglass resin seat as standard. Additional seats are available on request, including the F6 Rombo Silver or H7 models. For sizing of your seat, consult the seat sizing chart available here, or in the image gallery.
Purely as a reference as you begin to measure your own dimensions, an average adult male driver, height 6' 0", with waist 33-34 will fit a size 3 seat quite well.
For shipping of the Barracuda chassis, typically overland, LTL freight carrier is the ideal mode for timely and cost-effective kart shipments. Once ordered, typical shipment time is 5 days - 1.5 weeks depending on destination. Point Karting.com has found that shipping directly to your nearest central shipping hub for a carrier is best, as this eliminates additional costs to the buyer, and is more reliable than a commercial or private residential delivery.
Each chassis is sold separately.
