AIR SPRUNG FRONT SUSPENSION FORK
Air Sprung Front Suspension Forks offer significant advantages over traditional coil sprung forks. The predominant benefit is the significantly reduced weight – an air fork can weigh as much as half that of a traditional coil fork, meaning that you’ll find climbing hills an absolute breeze. While air forks also offer progressive compression rates and significantly more adjustment options, from changing the air pressure within the fork to manually adjusting the rebound or locking your fork out. There’s a reason UCI riders are moving to air-sprung front suspension forks, why don’t you?
LONG TRAVEL DROPPER POST
Featuring a short seat tube for maximum standover clearance, allowing size-specific, long-travel dropper posts to get seats completely out of the way in the rough stuff.
TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINIUM FRAME
Butting offers varying thickness in tubing throughout frame construction so you get the benefit of strength where you need it and a lightweight design everywhere else. As part of the process, frames are heated and cooled significantly increasing the strength of the tubing.
