Super-Light Mechanical Formed Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame
Our super-light 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been triple-butted to reduce weight and tune the tubeset for improved handling and all round performance; for 2016 we have increased standover clearance and have also improved lateral stiffness by adding a 142mm x 12mm through axle configuration. We have also made the Sentier frames Reverb Stealth compatible.
Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels and a 140mm travel fork; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size will roll over roots and rocks with ease.
