ENDURO AND TRAIL FUN – The latest addition to our float link equipped full suspension trail bike line-up and the perfect all day bike if you
like your trails to be challenging. A brand new lightweight aluminium bike combining all the latest design thinking which can deal with far more than the 140 mm travel label suggests. More capable than a ONE-TWENTY but more agile than a ONE-SIXTY.
’SMART ENTRY’ – Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are
completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
FLOAT LINK SUSPENSION – The lower shock mount moves with the system to deliver plushness and pedalling efficiency. Our engineers can precisely influence the transmission ratio and progression, which means that a ‘Float Link’ system is very sensitive, delivering great support in mid-travel and the appearance of more than the 140 mm travel that the model name suggests.
MODERN TRAIL BIKE GEOMETRY – The geometry of the brand new ONE-FORTY has taken lots of influence from its bigger brother, the ONESIXTY, by mimicking the super short chainstays (435 mm) for increased agility and playfulness on the trail. A long reach and low centre of gravity, combined with a short stem and wide handlebar, deliver fun-packed and confidence inspiring handling.
TYRE CLEARANCE – The new ONE-FORTY has clearance for up to 2.6” wide tyres, allowing plenty of extra room to fit the right tyre for the track. Extra wide tyres deliver increased levels of grip and traction when the track gets rougher and more demanding, significantly improving the overall handling and riding experience.
METRICSHOCK / TRUNNION MOUNT – New metric shocks give our frame designers more flexibility by using a shorter shock with
increased stroke. Combined with the ball bearing bushing of the upper trunnion mount, sensitivity is increased and the suspension performance can be perfectly tuned.
1 x SPECIFIC DRIVETRAIN – Modern trail bikes are all about simplicity, durability and efficiency and 1x drivetrains offer a huge gear range
whilst remaining lightweight. Building our frame around a 1x specific setup allows us to keep chainstays short, adding to the agility and playfulness of the bike. Perfect for today’s demanding trails.
