Efficient Sport Suspension
Using our knowledge of 279 wheel technology, a Ladies specific cross country machine was born. The 29er front wheel mixed with an 80mm front suspension fork keeps the front end low, the 29er front wheel enhances rolling efficiency, rider comfort and cornering traction, while the 27.5 rear inch wheel makes it easier to control and position one’s weight over the rear of the bike during technical descents. This is all tied together with oval butted aluminium tubing, giving a light and lively experience for the rider.
Splash frames are designed from the ground up to provide a more comfortable fit without compromising performance.
Unique profiles get maximum strength out of the alloy tubing while keeping weight down by using butted sections.
No exposed cable means that your bike shifts crisper and smoother for longer. Cable and housing replacements are quick and easy.
29er Front tyre and 275 rear achieves the best of both worlds. A grippy front end with great roll over ability, and a light and poppy rear wheel.
