140mm Travel V-Link 27.5” Frame & RockShox Sektor Silver TK 27.5 Solo Air fork
Revised and revamped for 2014 our lightweight 6061-T6 Hydroformed multi-butted frames deliver 140mm of rear wheel travel via our Four-Bar V-Link activated suspension platform which eliminates pedal bob yet remains fully active at all times. Our aggressive trail geometry has been revised and designed to offer impeccable handling characteristics based around 27.5” (650b) wheels. A shorter headtube reduces the stack height of 27.5” wheels to provide a more aggressive stance for improved handling and control in any situation. We have increased the top tube length to enable freedom of movement over the front of the bike for improved handling and control when using shorter stems and wider bars. We have added ISCG tabs should you wish to run a chainguide and all Escarpe models are Reverb Stealth ready. All pivots run on sealed cartridge bearings to provide supple performance and low maintenance. A replaceable gear hanger comes as standard. Suspension travel is controlled by the RockShox Monarch RT air shock which offers unlimited tunability for rider preference. RockShox Sektor Silver TK forks offer 140mm of air sprung travel to provide a perfectly balanced suspension set up. Additional features include Rebound and Lock Out adjustment; tapered alloy steerer and 15mm Maxle Lite through axle which increase front end stiffness for precise steering and tracking through rough sections of trail and rock gardens.
Shimano SLX/Deore & FSA Groupset
A high performance groupset features Shimano SLX shifters and rear derailleur with a Deore front derailleur to provide flawless shifting time after time. The XT Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur improves chain tension which reduces the chance of chain derailment. An FSA Comet 2x10 chainset provides the driving force at the heart of the transmission. Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear provide powerful and dependable stopping power with great modulation and lever feel.
Wheelset & Finishing Kit
A tough wheelset comprising of Formula sealed cartridge bearing disc hubs and Mavic XM 319 27.5” (650b) rims provide snappy accelerations and low rotational weight. Continental X-King tyres offer optimal grip and rolling efficiency. Finishing kit is supplied by Vitus with our lightweight 6061 alloy stem, bars and seatpost providing high performance components which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.
