Heading into the new 2015 season, our 145 mm All-Mountain ONE-FORTY is even more confidence inspiring. The frame construction as well as the specifications have been modified cautiously to further enhance the benefits of the 27.5” wheel size for navigating technical trails up- and downhill.
The sophisticated “M.O.R.E.” chassis constructed with “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” technology still combines all the characteristics important for aggressive All Mountain riders, especially drivetrain and braking neutrality and effective suspension. For the new model year 2015, the chainstays have been re-engineered to be 4 mm shorter than previously (now 445 mm).
This provides the ONE-FORTY with even more superb agility and playfulness. In addition, clearance for the rear wheel has been expanded to now easily accommodate wide 2.35” tires. Carried over from the 2014 model are innovative chain-stay protection, internal cable routing and intelligent servicing access below the bottom bracket. For 2015 all models feature stiff 15 mm thru-axles in the front, handy dropper posts and wide 740 mm handlebars with short 60 mm stems. Together with the longer top tube, this makes riding challenging trails a blast. The top-of-the-line model ONE-FORTY 7.900 with a powerful 1x11 drivetrain, 760 mm handlebar and 45 mm stem even comes as a light Enduro bike.
