HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with aggressive trail geometry and 120 mm rear wheel travel – Shimano STePS E8000 motor allows for short chain stays delivering agility. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running. Casting motor bracket creates an integrated appearance of the motor into the frame as well as provides an extremely strong connection between frame and motor.
The eONE-TWENTY benefits from the advantages of the extra 6 mm width of the ‘Boost 12x148’ standard. Shallower spoke angles and through axles make for stiffer wheels. The chain line moves outwards – necessary to create short chain stays delivering agility and massive grip from the B+ tyres.
A trunnion mount shock gives our frame designers more flexibility by using a shorter shock with increased stroke. Combined with the ball bearing bushing of the upper mount, shock sensitivity is increased, and the suspension performance can be perfectly tuned.
A dropper post is allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. The fitted dropper posts featuring internal cable routing and remote levers, creating a cleaner look and allowing easier ‘on the go’ saddle height adjustment.
650B+ wheels featuring 35-40 mm wide inner width rims and 2.8" tyres which are hugely capable when the going gets rough but also offer loads and loads of up-hill traction, cornering grip, puncture resistance and cushioning, without being draggy or sluggish. Most models offer tubeless ready rims and tyre configurations making a conversion to tubeless incredibly straightforward.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
With short chain stays the models are blessed with super playful handling. The long reach in combination with a short stem and wide handlebars offer tons of control even in the trickiest situations.
