A demo fleet of 10 bikes is in production right now, from which two bikes will be permanently located at our partner in Switzerland for test riding. And we prepare for the first real production batches, for which we have ordered the relevant components already. The M will be available in sizes M, L and XL in 6 natural colors and in three models.

 

We prepare for a soft launch of the website by the end of November, early December. We will be able to accept the first pre-orders by that time.

After continuous testing in the  summer we have developed changes and optimizations to the carbon layup, the chain tensioner, the trigger shifter and the leverage ratios of the M7 and M9.

 

We are now preparing for a pre-production batch of 10 bikes that will serve as test and demo bikes. We expect that we can accept the first pre-orders by the end of November, beginning of December. Also the website will go live around that time.

Testing at our performance testing location in Croatia was very successful, many things worked as expected or even better.

 

At the same time we found a number of points to improve, we are working on resolving these issues right now.

 

The frames passed stress testing and we ride the first bikes continuously to find out and solve any durability problems they might have.

The first frames came in and  look very good! We have a specialized local firm do the paint job and decals for us.

 

Mid June we took the first bikes to our performance testing center in Croatia for thorough testing.

We expect the first frames to come in soon. Also we have a little delay due to the worldwide situation.

  • first size-L frames expected to come in by mid May
  • building wheelsets
  • preparing paintjob and decal sets at our local bike coating firm for the test bikes
  • preparing bike test program
  • preparations for logistics, website, manufacturing.

We thought we’d give you a small update of what we’re currently working on:

  • preparing extensive frame testing
  • CAD development on M and XL frames
  • testing shifting options
  • building the website and webshop
  • organizing logistics and production
A bit of a shocker. Not even launched yet and already a new name? We were re-thinking our brand name and expect to launch with a name that fits the bike and our brand even better. We’ll keep you posted.
 

And a small update of what we’re currently working on:

  • finalizing the color and graphics schemes
  • shock tuning with Fox
  • development on new shifting options
  • building the website and webshop
  • organizing logistics and production

the M

The M-series is a range of high-end mountain bikes. Combining confidence inspiring geometry, great design and our patented suspension platform in an engaging package using 7% reclaimed automotive carbon in the process.

 

The bikes are equipped with the best suspension components from our partner Fox, hubs from Industry Nine, wheels from Crankbrothers, top of the line brakes from Magura and a Pinion C1.9 or C1.12 gearbox. And we will offer the bikes with our Instinctiv optional fast trigger shifting system.

 

The M comes in three layouts; a playful M7 with 150mm rear suspension and 27.5″ wheels, a racy M9 with 140mm rear suspension and 29″ wheels and a cheeky M97 with 150mm rear suspension in a mixed wheel setup.
