Pinkbike say the ONE-TWENTY is an “extremely capable and comfortable” trail bike

After attending the launch of the all-new ONE-TWENTY short travel trail bike, mountain biking website Pinkbike gave their first impressions, saying they “went beyond what the One-Twenty was designed to do and it handled it all admirably”.

With a focus on simplicity, the ONE-TWENTY has been designed to be the perfect do-it-all trail bike, pairing excellent pedalling manners with a capable character downhill. As Pinkbike’s tester said: “The climbing performance is very impressive… the suspension is very stable and efficient under power, with almost no bob or slouching”, adding that “the suspension felt balanced front-to-rear and comfortable for the travel. I was also impressed by the SRAM DB8 brakes and the 200 mm travel dropper post.”

Using the geometry concept from our award-winning ONE-SIXTY and ONE-FORTY bikes along with the reach-based AGILOMETER sizing system, the ONE-TWENTY also uses a modified version of our P-FLEX flexstay suspension. This too was praised, with the reviewer saying: “I used all the travel where appropriate, but always had good support and never bottomed out harshly.”

Summing up, they said that: “the One-Twenty is extremely capable and comfortable”.
