The aluminium frame uses lightweight, hydroformed tubing to increase the joint strength, while keeping weight at a minimum. The matt black paint finish not only looks great, but it is baked enamel which is tough and resistant to weathering, so it will still look as new in a few years time.
Lock out on the suspension means that you can flick a lever on the handlbars, to turn the suspension off. This means you can climb hills more efficiently, or when the road ahead is in good shape, you can get along with the miminimum effort.
The 27 speed gear system is a combination of Shimano Deore with Altus shifters and front derailleur. Deore and particularly Deore Xt are usually seen on off-road bikes, where they has developed a reputation for reliability and durability. The changing is smooth and precise with a light action. It is ideal for commuting, but will handle a bit of off-road fun with ease.
Braking is excellent. Shimano M445 hydraulic discs take care of that. Hydraulic discs give smooth, progressive braking, that is not effected by rim damage or road debris. The brakes always work well and smoothly, you can rely on them.
It is fitted with Kenda tyres, which roll well and are quite pucture resistant, which is ideal for this type of bike.
Ideal as an all purpose bike, come and have a free test ride, you will be impressed.
