PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM 2018
Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
X-TAPER HEADTUBE 2018
Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
SMOOTH WELDING 2018
Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
INTERNAL CABLE 2018
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
SMART ENTRY 2018
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
DI2 READY 2018
Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.
The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar.
C-S POST MOUNT DISC 2018
Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong and light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection and better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.
12-148 THRU-AXLE ‘Boost’ 2018
New Boost standard – wider axle widths; 110?mm front and 148?mm rear, allowing a shallower spoke angle for stiffer wheels, especially beneficial in 29ers
15-110 THRU-AXLE ‘Boost’ 2018
New Boost standard – wider axle widths; 110?mm front and 148?mm rear, allowing a shallower spoke angle for stiffer wheels, especially beneficial in 29ers.
CASTING MOTOR BRACKET 2018
Sophisticated shape only possible due to casting technology, creating an integrated appearance as well as an extremely strong connection between the e-bike motor and frame for improved performance and reliability.
