Aluminum

Wheelsize 29 inch

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.

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.

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.
