Simplon bikes are made with great attention to detail due to the knowledge that a bike is more than just the sum of its single parts. The frame comes with a unique design language, outstanding lines and a completelyinternal cable routing . SimplonsASC-9 alloy are at the same weight significantly more durable than conventional 7005 aluminum. Double butted for load-capable forming of the tubes. After that the ALU-SL tube sets are placed in molds and formed with oil under very high pressure. Through thishydroforming-process not only load-capable but also more visually appealing aluminum tube shapes are produced. Highest precision, weight-saving and cleanly crafted byDouble-TIG-Welding-Technique . Finally a multiple heat treatment is applied. A Tapered head tube increases the head tube stiffness and ensure a longer life of the headset. The T-Axle System with 142 mm Hub width and 12 mm shaft diameter, increased the lateral stiffness of the rear end. The acceleration rigidity is maximized by the press-fit BB 92 mm bottom bracket . The integrated 160 mm Direct Postmount is functional and aesthetically. Tuned specifically for Simplon, the RockShox Monarch RT damper and works perfectly with the drive neutral, 4-link kinematic. The almost ideal linear spring curve stands for optimum utilization of the travel. To complete the impressive chassis, a RockShox Revelation RL fork works on the front and can easily be locked from the handlebar. The complete XT 11-speed shifting group provides very precise and rapid gear changes. The solid DT Swiss M 1900 wheels guarantee a lot of fun, whether uphill or downhill.
