Ready for the whole mountain.
Our ONE-FORTY, a deliberately fun-oriented All Mountain bike with 27.5”(650B) wheels, is a capable addition to our full-suspension family. With 145mm of dialed rear travel, it takes on every uphill, every trail and every downhill with a big grin on its face. Wide tires and supple suspension forks soak up gnarly terrain, and together with dropper posts and a short rear end for plenty of shredability, this bike is ready for the whole mountain.
The ONE-FORTY was just carefully modified for 2015. Improved features include slightly shorter chainstays that increased agility as well as more clearance for sturdier tires. As a result, our engineers were able to fully rely on the basic “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” full-suspension concept for the 2016 season so that they could once again devote themselves to its extremely attractive specs. In addition to upgrades of the suspension forks, which are held in place by a stiff “X-Taper” head tube, the preferred use of an even more reliable combination of tires is most striking: not only does a proven and powerful tire – Schwalbe’s Hans Dampf – do its job both in front and in back (depending on model version); “go tubeless!” is the name of the game. With the advantages of tubeless, especially in challenging AM use, all models are equipped with lightweight tubeless rims or already have a complete tubeless kit (depending on model version). All the models share the use of a dropper seat post with internal “Smart Entry” cable routing, 760 mm-wide handlebars as well as 45 or 50 mm-long stems – even shorter than the 2015 model for an even more fun-oriented singletrack experience. The models are available with 1x or 2x drivetrains.
