Mountain biking – one of the most varied cycling disciplines and probably the most demanding when it comes to equipment. Our 48 years of manufacturing experience, creating some of the most technically advanced and award-winning mountain bikes in the world gives us the confidence to offer a Lifetime Frame Warranty. We produce everything from super-light carbon hardtails, via lightning-fast XC/marathon full suspension machines, all the way to EWS proven and test-winning enduro bikes. Being out in the open is a benefit of all forms of cycling but being able to take your bike off the road is a very special experience.
Completely redesigned for the 2019 season, our 'do it all' bike, the ONE-TWENTY has continued its success story with the international cycling press and managed to add multiple test successes including a 'BEST IN TEST' in Enduro Mountainbike Magazine to its trophy cabinet. Riders and the press alike appreciated the versatility of our mid-travel bike, the hugely efficient rear suspension configuration and the sheer unstoppable trail munching capabilities. While very much a trail bike at heart, the modern, yet balanced, trail bike geometry, paired with fantastic frame stiffness created a mid-travel bike that is super capable on rough trails but also carries speed perfectly on less technically demanding tracks.
RC OR TRAIL - The ONE-TWENTY is available in two different versions – the 120 mm front and 100 mm rear travel 'RC' version which combines the trail panache of the ONE-TWENTY chassis with a more short-travel XC setup or the hugely trail-capable 130 mm front / 120 mm rear travel 'classic' TRAIL version. The 'classic' ONE-TWENTY
is available in three frame variations: a super-light full carbon version, a carbon front triangle paired with hydroformed 6066 triple butted aluminium rear end and a more budget-friendly all-aluminium version, while the RC version has a full aluminium frame. All frames feature Boost technology.
LITE Lightweight 6066 series aluminium triple butted and hydroformed frameset with ‘Smooth welding’ and internal cable routing. Tapered head tube for precise steering, boost standard and rear through axle for rear end stiffness. Floating shock provides 120 mm of travel.
FLOAT LINK SUSPENSION - The lower shock mount moves with the
system to deliver plushness and pedalling efficiency. Our engineers can precisely
influence the transmission ratio and progression, which means that a ‘Float
Link’ system is very sensitive, delivering great support in mid-travel and the
appearance of more travel than the model name suggests
TRUNNION MOUNT - A trunnion mount shock gives our frame designers more flexibility by using a shorter shock with increased stroke. Combined with the ball bearing bushing of the upper mount, shock sensitivity is increased, and the suspension
performance can be perfectly tuned.
MODERN TRAIL BIKE GEOMETRY - The 'classic' ONE-TWENTY has a very low stand over height, giving the rider ample space to manoeuvre when the terrain demands it. The slack head angle and short chainstays give the bike a playful character while offering the perfect compromise between being a great climber and an agile trail bike.
NON-SLIP TIGHTENING - Selected bolts can be tightened via a TORX 30 key from just one side, without running the risk that the opposite side slips or turns, allowing faster and more straightforward tightening of important hardware components.
STEALTH DROPPER SEATPOST - A dropper post is allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. The fitted dropper posts featuring internal cable routing and remote levers, creating a cleaner look and allowing easier 'on the go' saddle height adjustment.
