Mladíci – nebo nováčci v jakémkoliv věku – jezdí na modelu Hardrock kvůli jeho odolnosti, přizpůsobivosti a schopnostem, ať již při jízdě ve městě po cestě do školy/do práce, na trati pro horská kola nebo při jízdě zkratkou na návštěvu ke kamarádovi.
Co Frames made of corrosion-resistant aluminum tubing, utilizing ORE (Optimized Radius Engineering) on the down tube.
Proč Creates the best balance of light weight, strength, durability, and value.
Jak By controlling everything from the raw material to the extrusion, butting, swaging, and heat treatment of the tubes, we can optimize our Hardrock bikes for the given ride experience. ORE, specifically, increases weld surface areas at headtube junctions for greater strength, while shaving material in non-critical areas.
HIGH-QUALITY ALLOY WHEELSET
Co Double-wall alloy rims with alloy cassette hubs.
Proč Longer wheelset life, quicker acceleration, and better control.
Jak By using a different extrusion process, a second wall is added to the rim, which increases stiffness and strength with little weight penalty. And while some competitors use freewheel style hubs, our alloy cassette hubs dramatically increase stiffness and strength at the point of power transfer, while increasing durability.
TUNABLE SUSPENSION FORK
Co 80mm-travel alloy fork with pre-load adjust, size-specific spring rates, and oversized stanchions.
Proč Better control and precise handling for a more responsive and comfortable ride on or off-road.
Jak Combining a lightweight fork material with stiff, oversized stanchions and 80mm of smooth travel keeps the front wheel on the ground and tracking straight over rough terrain. Preload allows riders to acheive proper sag according to their specific weight and desired ride feel.
Co 29-inch specific models available at most levels.
Proč Provides faster and more efficient rolling on varied surfaces and makes it easier to get over obstacles.
Jak Larger wheels maintain more momentum when rolling, making on-road riding more efficient. Off-road, the contact angle is less severe on square-edge bumps, so 29” wheels roll over obstacles faster and easier than traditional 26” wheels. They also bridge wider gaps between rocks, which smooths out bumpy conditions.
