Frame: Our widely-admired Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension design form the basis for the four pivot 7005 HPA frame. The Tuned Drive Position (TDP) allowed us to optimise chainstay length, making for noticeably more agile and lively handling out on the trail. Because that means you're likely to be riding faster than ever, we've also fitted 148mm Boost hubs, giving greater wheel rigidity and better reliability. Gear cables are also run internally now - hidden away, tidied up and protected.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
