Rear Drop Pivot is a Horst link style suspension system. The four bar link design allows for fine tuning on both wheel travel path and shock rate.
Internally routed cables provides a clean, sleek appearance while tucking cables away from dirt and debris.
Triple butted tubes are the hallmark of a high end aluminum frame construction, and allow for maximum stiffness at a minimum weight. A triple butted tube has three different thicknesses along the tube length, allowing you to focus material where you need it and remove it where you don't.
Tapered 1.5" lower to 1-1/8" upper; 1-1/4" to 1-1/8" is also available. Tapered head tube designs are stiffer and stronger than conventional straight head tubes, with the added benefit of offering a greater surface area for welding. Minimal flex at the front of the frame provides increased steering precision and accuracy.
E-Thru axles offer higher stiffness / rigidity than traditional QR system.
Hydro forming is a cost-effective way of shaping ductile metals such as aluminum into lightweight, structurally stiff and strong pieces. Hydro forming is a basis for creating complex shapes, and produce stronger, lighter, and more rigid unibody structures for frames.
Direct mounting your rear brake provides additional torsional stiffness and eliminates adaptors, bolts and excess weight.
Tubes are precisely machined using high precision robot arm with a 2000W high power laser. The laser cuts the aluminum tube on a three-dimensional curved path, this allows precise machining of complex surfaces.
CMT - Cold Metal Transfer welding technology creates higher penetration, lower heat input welds with low spatter and perfect shape . The CMT welding machine head is mounted to a robotic arm which coordinates the movement along the welding path, while instantaneously matching the welding parameters as needed. The result is a weld that is as good or better than hand welding.
