RAPID RESPONSE CHAIN STAYS
Short and stiff chainstays provide not only a responsive drive forward, but keep cornering agile, allowing one to ride through tight and twisty trails.
Branch Unified Rear Suspension Technology keeps the rear triangle as one piece with no pivots near the rear axle, minimising rear triangle flex and maximising responsiveness of the ride. The linkage pivots are kept close together near the seat tube with short and stiff linkages, maximising the mechanical rigidity for better tracking and overall performance.
FD DIRECT MOUNT
Direct mount for front derailleur is stiff and accurate, making sure your shifting is at its optimum.
Rear thru axle provides a stiff and secure fastening of the rear wheel. The custom design integrates a threaded hanger that can be easily replaced should there be damage. The frame supports the 142 x 12mm standard and enhances rear wheel tracking in rough trail conditions for added rider control.
SHIMANO PRESS FIT BB
Shimano Press fit BB design is reliable, smooth and light. The frame has no BB thread, but uses a larger BB shell that also increase BB stiffness and welding area, enforcing the light and stiff principles of the system.
LOW LINED CABLE MANAGEMENT
Cable routing placed under the down tube is neat, simple and allows for full cable length housing for great sealing of rear derailleur housing.
