Highlights

Lightweight 6066 series triple butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with smooth welding. Full carbon rocker arm for even more stiffness and reduced weight. Tapered head tube and Boost standard bolt through axles for precise handling. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running.

Our ONE-SIXTY is one of the biggest showstoppers in our full suspension range. Fully at home on the demanding tracks of the Enduro World Series, ridden by Toni Ferreiro, our ONE-SIXTY has also gained press accolades. FLOW calls it ‘a genuine contender as the best trail bike we’ve ridden at this price point’ and ‘it just looked right – the right angles, the right components, at the right prices.’

A trunnion mount shock gives our frame designers more flexibility by using a shorter shock with increased stroke. Combined with the ball bearing bushing of the upper mount, shock sensitivity is increased, and the suspension performance can be perfectly tuned.

Available as a combination of carbon front end and 6016 aluminium rear or as an all-aluminium version. Carrying only a small amount of extra weight over the carbon/aluminium frame version, this offers an excellent alternative for riders preferring an all-metal setup or those on a tight budget. All 2019 models will come with a full carbon rocker arm for even more stiffness and reduced weight.

Race proven and loved by the international cycling press, our ONE-SIXTY combines super short 430 mm chainstays for increased agility and playfulness, with a long reach, slack head angles and a low centre of gravity, delivering an aggressive enduro geometry. 

‘Boost’ standard front & rear. The extra 6 mm rear hub and 10 mm front hub spacing in comparison with conventional hubs brings the width up to 148 mm / 110 mm and allows for a shallower spoke angle for an even stiffer and stronger wheel. On top of that, the chain line moves outwards – an important requirement for short chainstays.

Technologies

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.

IMAGE

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

IMAGE

DOWN TUBE EXIT

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

IMAGE

SMART ENTRY

Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

CHAINSTAY POST MOUNT DISC

In-board brake mounts are positioned within the rear triangle to protect them. The caliper supported by the stronger chainstay is able to distribute braking forces better. Internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.

IMAGE

12-148 BOOST STANDARD THROUGH AXLE

Boost standard – wider axle widths; the by 6 mm increased now 148 mm wide rear through axle (12mm axle diameter) allows a shallower spoke angle for stiffer wheels, especially beneficial in 29ers or for MTB wheels that are used in very demanding conditions. The Boost standard also offers greater tyre clearance in the frame.

IMAGE

SUPERLITE 16 ALUMINIUM

Our latest grade of aluminium (6016) enables super thin wall thicknesses whilst delivering amazing strength, ideal for demanding off-road riding and racing.

IMAGE

FLOAT LINK REAR SUSPENSION

The lower shock mount moves with the system to deliver sensitive response characteristics. Our engineers can precisely influence the transmission ratio, and progression meaning a ‘Float Link’ rear suspension system appears to offer more travel than the model name suggests.
