AX LIGHTNESS mountain bike frame VIAL EVO XC Carbon
Basing on the latest technology and manufacturing processes, pushes the VIAL evo XC into new MTB spheres. With a sensationally low weight of 860 grams in medium size, the frame is not only extremely light, he knows also by high strength and durability values ostentatious. Clever detail solutions underline the genes of a champion.
Technological and manufacturing technology to the success winning VIAL evo road frame based, has the VIAL evo XC very distinct characteristics: UD fiber material is reinforced at strategic locations targeted by tissue layers. Everything that happened on the frame externally visible. Unlike other manufacturers AX LIGHTNESS hidden no dirty bodies under paint or use carbon view documents to aufzuhübschen the product artificially. Selected materials, consistently only highest quality fiber material, laminating in clean rooms, the autoclave curing, and proprietary processes have an optimal quality.
Geometric very modern ways were gone again. All have in common the goal was to provide the ultimate XC (Race-) Hardtail to the wheels. So, the VIAL evo XC despite 29er wheel size an extremely short chainstay length of only 427 mm, the most likely shortest chainstays of the total market! Direct benefit is thereby significantly improved traction and rear grip, which can be directly experienced in the first meters and around curves. The highly asymmetric chainstays allow for maximum tire clearance to be compatible both with very wide-flops, and more to allow freewheeling deep mud. At the same time as a possible compatibility is ensured with different chainring sizes. Price of this endeavor is the restriction to 1 times drives; a derailleur or its Leitbleich would conflict directly with the rear due to the radical design.
A long reach and the consequent short stem (ideally 70-90 mm) in combination with a flat steering angles provide much security on steep terrain. By relieving the front wheel cornering is simplified and leaves the suspension both downhill as better standing in the curve in the travel.
The VIAL evo XC sets consistently on internal cable routing, for both mechanical and electronic Di2 circuits. The Seat post 30.9 mm and an additional internal cable duct allowing the clean, internal laying of adjustable seatposts.
