If it looks right, it often is right. Of course, there's a lot more to designing the ultimate cross-country race chassis than that, but it's a truth that holds for our designers. That's why, for example, the seatstays blend seamlessly into the shock mount on this frame. It's also the reason you won't see any exposed bolts or bearings, and why we routed cables internally (including provision for Di2). As for the stuff you can't see, it's the high tech Advanced Twin Mold C:68 carbon you'd expect, crafted into a structure that sets new standards for low weight and high stiffness. Boost148? Check. Tapered head tube? Present and correct. We've sweated the details, so you can concentrate on the ride.
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.
