The illustration above is an example. We reserve the right, as long as the type, suitability and purpose of the bike are not reduced, to replace individual parts with components of the same or higher quality, so that the bike is delivered differently. The use of other components is currently mainly caused by delivery problems due to the Corona pandemic.

TECHNOLOGIES & FEATURES

Innovation, development and design: core elements explained.

 

Our bikes profit from more than 25 years of experience: we've always been detail loving bike addicts. Therefore, we are constantly developing our bikes and playing at the top of the game with innovative concepts and new designs. Superior suspension designs like our RIOT-link, award-winning design and incomparable riding pleasure make up for one thing: our bikes are our pride.

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions.

Our optimized FEM frames have been improved with complex calculations down to the last detail. The resulting, seemingly simple solutions are much more complex than they appear. 

Aluminium

Aluminium-Rahmen

Lower for more freedom.

Our frames are already prepared for dropper seat posts: The cables can be routed inside the tubes for a clean look and better protection. For all those who are already thinking about tomorrow today.

Wheelsize 27.5 inch

Details that are worthwhile.

The highest standard for all! With the long-life ball bearings our mountain bikes are well protected against all influences, whether dirt, shear forces or wear.

Forged solution.

The connection between the chainstay and bottom bracket is a very crucial point on the bike. With our elaborate forged solution we achieve a very high degree of stiffness and strength.

The best on every trail.

Proven for years - this reliable rear suspension works according to a progressive principle in which the braking forces do not affect the suspension function. This guarantees maximum pedalling efficiency and traction - uphill and downhill.

Designed with truly refreshing storage in mind.

There's plenty of space for refreshments. Bikes featuring this symbol provide plenty of space for a bottle. 

Well protected drive.

The compact hub transmission is not only tucked away to make it invisible, but is also properly shielded against dirt and thus much less sensitive or susceptible to wear.

Drop it when the trail gets hot.

Remote-controlled seatpost: a great help when the trail gets steeper or when you want to get on or off easier.
