    XDS RISE 3.0 (2021) - MINT

    If you’ve landed on this Rise 3.0 page, you’re already considering bikes like the Liv Rove series or want a versatile general-fitness type hybrid bike.

    The Rise 3.0 is designed for family bike rides, commuting and easy touring. It’s comfort and stable handling will appeal to those who are returning to cycling from a long absence (that is, kids).

    In this preview, I’ll explain why the Rise 3.0 should be the bike you buy and touch on all the key components.

    THE FRAME

    The Rise 3.0 frame is a little bit special. It’s finished to a far higher standard than what we typically see from other manufacturers at this price point.

    High end finishes like smooth welds are not standard, they require a lot of time, effort and expense.

    So, most brands don’t bother. Except XDS.

    Why?

    Because XDS foremost are an engineering brand. In fact, they are the worst at sales and marketing, especially compared to brands like Giant, Specialized, Trek and others.

    So it’s no wonder people haven’t heard of them.

    Rather, their focus is on build quality and craftsmanship.

    X6 is XDS’ premium level aluminium. And to make the frame, it uses a process called triple-butting.

    This means, each tube has 3-different thicknesses. Most brands use a cheaper (to manufacture) single-butted frame at this price point.

    The reason:

    Triple-butting removes material where it isn’t required using a detailed approach to the forces that the frame is subject to.

    This means the frame is the lightest and strongest it can possibly be. Kind of like a lean, fit athlete.

    Single-butted frames take a more ‘relaxed’ approach to frame design.

    A stiffer frame also creates better handling (cornering and descending, especially) and far better pedaling efficiency. More power is being transferred to the road or the trail, rather than going into the frame’s flex.

    THE NEW SHIMANO ALTUS

    Shimano’s new Altus gear system is new and super exciting (for us bike nerds anyway).

    It’s by far the best Altus groupset thus far, because it employs a lot of manufacturing techniques used on higher-end Shimano gear systems - without the substantial extra cost.

    The Rise 3.0 uses a total of 27-gears. Before you freak out though, keep in mind that the more gears you have the better the quality gets.

    This means:

    Rather than a distinct clunk, the chain moves smoothly and with minimal effort.

    There is also a much wider gear range to select from, this means you can climb up steep hills easier and descend the other side a little faster.

    HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES

    Buy a bike with hydraulic disc brakes. Period.

    You will not regret it.

    Hydraulic disc brakes deliver a smoother lever feel; are lighter to pull and easy to slow down. They are a much safer alternative to mechanical brakes.

    They don’t require as much maintenance either.

    There are no mechanical cables to service or replace, hoses have mineral oil in them instead. Levers can also be adjusted for smaller hands, ensuring better ergonomics for teenagers and smaller riders.

    Hydraulic disc brakes properly work in all weather conditions; wet, dry, dusty or muddy; ensuring rider safety (and control of the bike) in all conditions.

    WHEELS AND TYRES

    The XDS Rise’s rims are made from aluminium but double walled for strength and rigidity.

    The rims are also slightly wider than normal. This means better impact resistance and tyre grip, especially on gravel and dirt.

    Another upgrade for 2021 is the rear hubs. They engage faster and deliver a distinct mechanical purr. This results in faster transmission of power.

    The result?

    Faster acceleration and power transfer which lets you climb easier and hold momentum with minimal input.

    Named after a region of Italy that sits at the base of the Alps, XDS have chosen to go with Kenda’s new Piedmont tyres.

    These are 40mm and paired with the wider rim deliver more air volume. This acts like micro-suspension and helps absorb any imperfections and impacts from the surface you’re riding on.
