Frame: Optimising a frame for disc brakes is both art and science - and as part of the process we chose an X12 axle system both front and rear to improve rigidity. The forces involved also necessitate a specially designed fork which, together with the Attain GTC Pro Disc's tapered head tube, creates an enormously stiff structure without sacrificing comfort. This way, the rider benefits from a smooth ride and precise steering on even the longest descents. Internally routed cables give this race machine a clean appearance - a true Gran Turismo. Full mudguards are an easy addition, if the need arises - an option that we've included because we know that even hardened racers like to stay dry on long training rides in poor weather.
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.
