    To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.



    The ONE-TWENTY RC has a very low standover height, giving the rider ample space to manoeuvre when the terrain demands it. It slightly steeper seat and head angle (in comparison to the ONE-TWENTY) provides even more efficiency and a more marathon specific trail behaviour. The short travel rear
    end, make the bike an even more uncompromising climber than its bigger brother. 

    Lightweight 6066 series aluminium triple butted and hydroformed frameset with ‘Smooth welding’ and internal cable routing. Tapered head tube for precise steering, Boost standard and rear through axle for rear end stiffness. The floating shock provides 100 mm of travel.

    When hitting steam climbs in a marathon race, you want to be able to quickly lock out the front fork without taking your hands off the controls. So, all our ONE-TWENTY RC come with remote lockout, allowing you to lock out the fork from a leaver on your handlebars. The rear shock lockout is positioned on the shock to keep the cockpit clean and manageable.

    The more marathon focused version offers 100 mm of rear wheel travel combined with a 120 mm suspension fork, resulting in a steeper seat and head angle, making the RC even more pedalling efficient and more agile on twisty courses.

    A dropper post is allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. The fitted dropper posts featuring internal cable routing and remote levers, creating a cleaner look and allowing easier 'on the go' saddle height adjustment.

    Not just race proven by the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM in their final 2016 season but still competed on by living mountain bike legends like Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjå and José Antonio Hermida who are looking for lightning fast acceleration, great climbing and descending ability as well as super low weight.

    When creating high-end aluminium frames, we use our proven PROLITE 66 (6066) aluminium, as it is incredibly light and durable. In addition, it works exceptionally well with our hydroforming technology, allowing us to create complex shapes, featuring triple butted wall thicknesses, an almost carbon-like appearance and the best possible stiffness-to-weight ratio. While lesser alloys might be cheaper, it is the ideal choice for high-performance bicycle frames.

    Steering precision is vital to safe and confident handling, and the X-TAPER HEADTUBE allows us to significantly boost this precision. A larger headset diameter at the bottom paired with a smaller one at the top helps to deal with the strains modern riding and equipment can put on the headtube, all without adding unnecessary weight. It allows tapered forks to be fitted with ease and delivers precise and confidence-inspiring steering.

    This is a process we use to give a nice flat finish to our welds instead of the scaled, 'stack of coins' effect TIG welded joints often have. The welder uses the welding torch to go over the joint twice, helping to smooth out the filler material. It takes a lot of skill to do this, but it delivers strong and smart-looking frames that have the appearance of a carbon fibre frame at first look.

    On the majority of our frames, we run the gear and brake cables and hoses through the frame. The cables enter and exit the frame through smooth sockets, or we use one of our other systems like SMART ENTRY or WIRE PORT to be routed through. Running the cables inside the frame protects them from the elements, gives a clean and neat look and can offer aerodynamic advantages.

    DOWN TUBE EXIT is a feature seen on some of our frames with internally routed cables. By slightly overlapping the downtube where it connects to the bottom bracket, it leaves a small space that allows cables to exit easily. This means they are easily accessible for routine maintenance or replacement, but it prevents excessive movement and noise that can cause wear and distraction.

    Many of our frames offer internal cable routing, where the gear and brake cables are run through the frame for maximum protection and a clean look. Some internally run cables can rattle when riding over uneven surfaces, but our SMART ENTRY system prevents this from happening. Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent noisy cable movement. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with any kind of cable or wire.

    Shimano's Di2 electronic shifting system offers fast, smooth and reliable shifting. In particular, in the road world, it has proven itself as the primary choice when top performance is at the top of the agenda. With that in mind, we have a broad selection of performance road frames that are Di2 READY and can accommodate the electrical cable, battery and other little tweaks that the system requires.

    A suspension system where the lower shock mount moves as well as the upper link, giving a supple and sensitive feel over bumps. This system allows our engineers to precisely manipulate the leverage ratio, giving ultimate control of the progression of the suspension so that a FLOAT LINK rear suspension system feels like it offers more wheel travel than the numbers alone suggest.

    This system means you only need a single tool to tighten important bolts, making it easy to secure them while out on the trail and also making routine maintenance faster and simpler. The bolts have a specially shaped head on one end that fits into a matching recess in the frame, preventing rotation. That means there is no hardware bonded into the frame itself, so damaged threads or bolts can be easily replaced.
