    Unsere Fahrräder haben einen progressiven Federungscharakter. Auf diese Weise ist die Federung geschmeidig und sensibel im Bereich des Sag, aber dennoch für große Schläge geeignet. Sanft mit geringem Risiko, anzuschlagen. Wie progressiv ein Fahrrad ist, hängt vor allem von der Regression des Hebelverhältnisses ab.


    Alle unsere Räder haben einen Anti-Squat-Wert von ca. 115 % beim Sag über alle Gänge, da die Kettenlinie nicht von Gangwechseln beeinflusst wird.


    Anti-squat values come down throughout the bikes’ travel: from more than 120% down to less than 90%. This way our team crafted a very efficient yet lively suspension platform.

    voll aktiv

    Unsere Getriebefahrräder profitieren von einem sehr geringen Pedalrückschlag. Vor allem bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten ist der Rückschlag in schwereren Gängen vernachlässigbar.


    Das ist ein großer Vorteil, denn es bedeutet, dass die Federung bei schnellen Abfahrten voll aktiv und sensibel bleibt, auch wenn du in die Pedale trittst.


    Anti-rise levels are optimal at 90 to 100% throughout the bikes’ suspension travel.


    This means that brake forces accurately compensate for any mass transfer during deceleration. Not only at sag-point but at any point throughout the bikes’ travel.

    extrem sanft

    Our suspension platform is designed to offer a near vertical initial axle-path. A vertical or rearward axle path improves the suspension’s smoothness.


    When the vectors from trail obstacles and the wheel path are more in line this results in the suspension being compressed rather than the bike being ‘held back’.

Ziehe das Buch hoch und simuliere so den Druck, der beim Sitzen auf einem Fahrradsattel entsteht. Markiere die Stelle an der Wand mit Klebeband und miss den Abstand zwischen der Oberseite des Buches und dem Boden.
