The ultimate in strength and light weight, high modulus carbon is the basis for the new breed of ultralight weight frames.
APRO's removable mandrel produces a smooth and uniform surface within the carbon frame, allowing for less material for the same strength. The resulting bicycle frame provides superior strength and stiffness while being extremely lightweight. (Patent : M412121)
Shared Pivot Technology uses a single point of attachment for the main pivot and shock. The SPT offers a mechanically simple and light-weight suspension system. (Patent : US8033558)
Internally routed cables provides a clean, sleek appearance while tucking cables away from dirt and debris.
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.
ISCG is the international Standard Chain Guide. Most manufacturers now use the ISCG 05 standard which has a larger 73mm diameter opening than other standards.
E-Thru axles offer higher stiffness / rigidity than traditional QR system.
Direct mount front derailleurs provide for increase front derailleur stiffness and perfect alignment Direct mount derailleurs eliminate the clamping system, toeliminate weight, and work with press fit bottom brackets.
Direct mounting your rear brake provides additional torsional stiffness and eliminates adaptors, bolts and excess weight.
Along with BB86, this Shimano BB92 Bottom Bracket is part of the new press fit standard. Typical mountain bike has a 68 or 73mm bottom bracket shell width, a BB92 equipped bike has a shell that measures 91.5mm wide and has a 41mm inside diameter.
• SPT5.5C Four bar suspension AM frame.
• Featuring tapered head tube 1 ⅛'' to 1 ½'', Shimano BB90, 140mm Travel, 142mm E-thru system.
