Advanced water shaping of aluminium tubes to create strong and stiff bike frame.
Triple butted technology
This technology ensures a combination of stiffness and strength where needed at the joins and thickness in the middle of the tube in order to achieve a lighter and more responsive frame.
29 inch wheels
Bigger wheel size diameter, which enables better grip and easier cycling over various challenging terrain, because bigger rims do not lose so much speed while travelling over obstacles. The bigger diameter rims also maintain speed on other types of terrain more easily, which is why they are widely accepted on the competitive levels, where achieving higher speeds is essential. It also ensures a smoother rolling over more technical terrain and obstacles of all sizes, which provides a rider a more comfortable ride and gives him more confidence to drive faster and to take a more agressive line.
Bike made for more efficient cycling
Bike made for more responsive handling, quicker acceleration and more effective riding uphill. But regardless of the focus on efficiency, the frame is designed in a way to offer more comfort and a relaxed body position to the rider while cycling.
Geometry optimized for a dynamic ride with 29 inch wheels
To achieve the most efficient 29er frame, the manufacturer used optimised tubing, to achieve the desired characteristics of the bike. Design of the frame was focused on achieving a flex free front end of the bike to offer a more stabile ride. They used shorter and stiff chainstays in order to achieve better acceleration. They also lowered the height of bottom bracket in order to offer better climbing
The wider headtube on the frame ensures greater steering accuracy and better front end stiffness. The increased stiffness is used in order to reduce the flex of the front end of the bike, which the rider feels as a more stable ride.
Laterally stiff seat stays
The seat stays are designed in a was to offer a rear end ofthe frame, which has lower horizontal flex, which ensures better acceleration and more effictive cycling. Yet the seat stays are also designed in a way to offer more vertical flex in order to increase the comfort while riding your bike.
Inforced strut between seat stays
Extra reinforced strut is used in order to limit the torsional flex of the rear ene of the frame. This gives the frame additional stiffness, so you can achieve a more efficient cycling experience.
Seatpost secured from the effects of the outside elements
The seat clamp location is facing forward and so keeps the water and dirt from the frame and so prolongs the lifetime of the frame.
Rapid response chain stays
Better acceleration is made available with the use of short and stiff chainstays. These are also used to offer more agile cornering, so you could ride on those tight and twisty trails.
The ovalized tubes of the frame provide stiff and responsive chassis to enable a more responsive bike. This way you will be able to tame even more technical trails.
