Frame: Our decision to equip this bike with disc brakes meant making some changes to the frame design. With a new fork and X12 quick release axle system front and rear, we've mananged to incorporate enormous stiffness into the chassis. That translates into smooth, stable performance, even at high speed and under hard braking. The PressFit bottom bracket is the kind of state of the art touch you'd expect and, naturally, we routed all the cables internally. It's not just a question of appearance; it also increases cable performance and service life.
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.
