A frame only gets our High Performance Aluminium (HPA) tag if it incorporates all the latest technologies. Complex hydroformed, triple butted tubes mean we can achieve an optimum weight/stiffness ratio. Standout technical details include the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and AHX dropouts for the X12 quick release axle. Internal cable routing contributes to the Stereo 140 HPA Race's clean looks. As for perfect handling, that's all down to Agile Trail Geometry - which guarantees a lively but stable feel in any trail riding situation. The short seat tube and low top tube combine to provide extra clearance for better manouevrability and maximum performance out on the trail.
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.
