ION G16

If you ask us which bike we had the most fun on in the last few years, the answer would be clear: The ION-G16! With this bike we were able to discover how much unused potential can be activated in one go by our revolutionary GEOLUTION geometry. No matter whether it is about fighting for fractions of a second in the enduro stages or mastering ever steeper and more technical descents. Because we have taken the liberty of thinking laterally and questioning the state of the art, the ION-G16 is just as much an enduro race bike as a freerider. Paradoxical as it may sound, the ION-G16 is also one of the most potent bikes in its class uphill. A pioneer in steering dynamics and suspension performance, the ION-G16 is a bike that makes beginners and professionals alike faster.

FOX RACING SHOX FLOAT X2

It is considered the most potent air damper in the FOX portfolio.

The special feature of Float X2 is the adjustable damping, which is based on a double-tube system, as with Cane Creek. This allows the large oil volume and the oil flow to be controlled very well. In addition to the air pressure, high and low speed compression and traction stages can be set separately.

Fox Racing Shox 36 Float 170mm

FOX SUSPENSION FORKS ENSURE MAXIMUM COMFORT AND SAFETY.

The award-winning 36 series offers the right model for every aggressive enduro rider to have great trail fun.

DT Swiss EX 1501 30mm BOOST 27,5"

Unsurpassed weight to strength ratio.

The Enduro version of the SPLINE® ONE line is available with 30 mm rim width. The larger internal width increases the tyre volume with the same tyre width, which improves traction and comfort. The specifically developed surface hardening process allows an unsurpassed ratio of weight to strength and makes the EX 1501 SPLINE® ONE the perfect enduro wheel.

X01 Eagle Boost 170mm

More stable - stiffer - lighter

The X01 Eagle™ crankset was developed for winner types. It is completely revised. With the special CARBON TUNED™ laminate technology. The X01 Eagle™ crank is tough when you’re chasing over rough and tumble on the ideal line. The X01 Eagle™ is the strongest, stiffest and lightest crank on the market. With its new Eagle™ Direct Mount chainrings, it is perfect for taking the podium. Providing you want it.

Sram X01 Eagle

The next level.

The new Eagle™ rear derailleur not only has a larger capacity; it is also the next stage of the proven X-HORIZON™ technology specially developed for 1x circuits. The larger, lower X-SYNC™ shifting roller with 14 teeth ensures sufficient capacity to handle the cassette with sprockets from 10 to 50 teeth. The design of the rear derailleur is nevertheless compact. It also ensures that you always pedal evenly. Its torque curve is even smoother thanks to the new Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™, so that shifting is quieter and “rounder”.

Magura MT7

German Engineering for maximum safety.

The clearly defined pressure point and maximum power make it the first choice of gravity and high-speed pilots. The 1-finger HC brake lever modulates the enormous braking power as desired. The HC brake lever and the pressure point adjustment provide the necessary ergonomics to have the brake perfectly under control even on the heaviest terrain. In hard enduro or downhill use, the additional braking power of 4 pistons offers fine dosing and maximum stability, adapted from Magura motorsport experience. Braking power does not have to be heavy. Carbotecture® SL brake handle and aluminium lever reduce the total weight. The 4-piston brakes are characterised by high thermal stability, which is achieved through optimum weight distribution. Optimum use of material where it is needed.
