RACE READY MEETS TRAIL PERFORMANCE
Closely related to our race, test and award-winning ONE-TWENTY, but with subtle differences that sets it apart from the big brother. The super-stiff chassis, the explosive acceleration, the proven and hugely efficient 'Float Link' rear suspension setup and the sporty, yet comfortable seating position of the 120 mm ONE-TWENTY inspired us to create a bike that has similar character trades but an extra dose of the racing gene – the ONE-TWENTY RC – the ideal bike for riders who want a more comfortable seating position and more trail panache than the NINETY-SIX, but don't need the extra travel of the 'original' ONE-TWENTY.
THE GREAT ALL–ROUNDER
Our ‘do it all’ bike, the One-Twenty offers reduced weight and stiffness, following modern trail bike geometry. It's fast acceleration renders it highly capable on rough trails or speeding along less technically demanding marathon or alpine tracks.
ALL MOUNTAIN AND TRAIL FUN
An instant winner with trail riders and the international cycling press, our 140 mm trail machine was credited with "real pedalling efficiency, brilliant suspension and top fun handling’"(MBR) and described as "a bloody hoot to ride" (FLOW), a bike that "eagerly surges forward" (IMB) and "one of the best mid-travel bikes we have ridden" (MBUK). The supple suspension system also contributes to making the One-Forty the perfect trail bike for long demanding days in the saddle and technical trail sessions.
Our test winning enduro bike combines a lightweight frame design with an aggressive geometry. The One-Sixty has consistently received great feedback. The capable suspension setup offers almost bottomless travel when heading downhill but doesn’t lag behind on the way back up to the trailhead.
