Characteristics

Enjoyable, reliable and uncomplicated: that sums up our ROKET range. We wanted a Hardtail that offers sensations and safety on the terrain and devil-may-care simplicity. The 130mm travel or the Plus tyres of our 27.6 inch wheels tell you straight away that it has no racing ambitions. This helps it cut through rough terrain comfortably, effectively and reliably. And depending on your preference and use, you can customise your ROKET with the following fittings: from the 2x11 SLX up to the 1x11 XT complete with telescopic support in our Rocket 8.Then there is our special bike, the ROKET X: a back country bike for the back of beyond. Designed to be low-maintenance, it comes, for example, with the lightweight, absolutely carefree 12-speed transmission Pinion P1.12, that is carefully sealed away to protect it from the harsh world outside. Also in the Xpackage: Telescopic support, a hub dynamo developed for us especially for rugged applications, as well as a USB charging option on the cockpit

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. 

Wider is better.

Boost means wider hubs. A small adjustment for a great improvement: wider hubs result in higher stability on big wheelset diameters.

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.
