Faithful to their original commitment to the sport and to cycling, BH supports racers and teams form all cycling disciplines: Road, Mtb XC, Enduro and Triathlon. In road cycling, BH sponsors the professional Sojasun team which participated in this year’s Tour de France, as well as teams that support the training and education of young cyclists such as BH Burgos, el Vienne – Futuroscope for female cycling and Synergy Baku.

DlZO: BH SR Suntour KMC, worldwide reference in XC BH and the BH-SR Suntour-KMC team continue to ride together. This collaboration has been confirmed by their success in the London 2012 Olympics where the young Julie Bresset took the gold in Mtb. BH-SR Suntour-KMC, one of the top scoring international teams (UCI Elite Mtb) has achieved major triumphs such as the World Championship and the European Championship with one of Its racers winning the gold medal in the Olympic Games as well as various wins in the World Cup.

Pauline Petit, a young cyclist who, at only 25 years, has already gained considerable experience in Mtb, and is the new representative of BH in the Enduro area.

Sponsored by BH Bikes, Julie Bresset had one of the greatest moments in the history of the team in the London 2012 Olympic Games, winning the gold medal and becoming the first French woman in history to be Olympic Champion in Mtb. Not to settle, the BH racer went on to win the World Championship in Mtb held in Austria shortly after.

In the triathlon, the BH Team supports Eneko Llanos, a legend in the sport, as well as young triathletes who are making their mark such as Mario Mola, Joao Silva, Fernando Alarza, Catriona Morrison and Gurutze Frades.

Julie Bresset, 23 years of age, came to the team in 2010 and in a few short years, she has become an international reference in the world of female Mtb as well as the most important member of the team led by Michel Hutsebaut.

BH’s SR Suntour KMC of Mtb XC is a world-wide referent team in this discipline, having in its ranks the young Julie Bresset, world and Olympic champion.

Fellow racer Maxime Marotte has spent six years with BH Suntour.

This year, the team has been reinforced with Stephane Tempier as well as current Spanish sub-23 champion, Pablo Rodríguez Guede. With this line up, the BH Suntour team is sure to lead the XC World Championships over the next seasons.

Julie Brset

“I am still celebrating my win in the Olympic Games” Bresset is London 2012 Olympic Champion, 2012 World Champion, 2011 World Cup Champion and French XC Champion in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Maxime Marotte

“My goal is to climb the world rankings” Marotte was French runner-up and World and European Champion in Team Relay. Stephane Tempier is a racer who knows what it means to be in the World Cup top-10. For years she has been aiming for a top position on international podiums. Pablo Rodríguez Guede is sure to be one of the great Spanish cyclists. He is the current Spanish Sub-23 Champion and finished 1st in the Spanish Cup Sub-23. In 2012, he took the bronze in the Spanish Elite Cup.

<f\mjg Pauline Petit

“I face all terrains at top speed” Over the past season, BH has signed on a new and promising young French Enduro athlete, Pauline Petit, currently one of the top racers. At only 25 years of age, she already gained considerable experience in Mtb, a discipline that she has set aside in order to concentrate fully on Enduro.

IgY\

Pauline will compete with the Lynx 6, the most aggressive of the BH models. This kilometre-devouring bike in the hands of one of the best riders of the moment: an intimidating combination for 2013. According to Pauline Petit, the Lynx 6 is “an aggressive bicycle, to face all terrains at top speed”.

Last year, Petit finished third in the Avalanche Cup Lyon, and earned second place in the Enduro Roc and Regional Enduro Championship of Languedoc Roussillon. In 2011 she finished first in the Maxi Avalanche Cervinia and in 2010 she also won first place in the Europe Cup Overall Rankings (Maxi Avalanche).

Yellow passion

SOJASUN Competing in the Tour de France The Sojasun team, equipped with G6 and Aerolight frames by BH, will take off from the starting line in the 2013 Tour de France in Porto-Vecchio. This is a very special edition of the Tour as the race celebrates its one-hundredth anniversary. With over 80 victories in the last four seasons and earning 1st place in the 2012 UCI Europe Tour, the team under Stéphane Heulot’s lead, will face this season with a primary goal: to continue growing and to take their place in the elite cycling world. Thus far in the season, Sojasun has earned 3 wins with Jonathan Hivert, the overall in the Étoile de Besseges and two stages of the Route of the Sun race. Participation in the Tour is a prestigious accomplishment for the group, recognition of months of work.

BH in the Tour

Thus, the Sojasun team will make its debut in the 2013 Tour de France with the G6, a bicycle manufactured from a single piece of carbon, offering it lightness and rigidity as well as an enormous power from the first turn of the pedals.

Burgos BH Supporting the learning and training of promising young athletes Burgos-BH is a Continental UCI team which has the primary function of training and teaching young and promising racers as well as more established athletes. The team aims to be an example and a model for cyclists wishing to enter in the professional cycling world. The team competes with the G6.

Vienne–Futuroscope Competition, development and training... Cycling in its purest state Created in March of 2006, the Vienne-Futuroscope team of female cyclists began competing in the 2007 season and has since collaborated in the development and training of young female cyclists. As a team, the UCI participates on an international level, with successes beyond the French borders. Currently, its racers include Audrey Cordon, an important name in the present and future of female cycling.

Synergy Baku Extending our passion for cycling across Asia The new cycling team, Synergy Baku is present this season with the goal of earning a spot on the squad and making a name for themselves in the international cycling world. This project, created by David McQuaid, eldest son of the UCI President, together with the Cycling Federation of Azerbaijan, has the goal of raising the level of cycling in this Asian country.

The team’s slogan is “The leader of the team is the team itself”, representing their training values which, according to Stéphane Heulot, are “above all, a great team, everyone contributes and if we are known for anything it is for being bold and conquering”. 15

KjaYl`dgf The BH Team has begun the 2013 season with some important victories by practically all of its members. Each of the races held has displayed the individual strength of these athletes who compete in three different disciplines, obtaining enviable results season after season. The team includes legendary triathlete Eneko Llanos who has conquered two of the most important international podiums, both in Abu Dhabi and in the Melbourne Ironman. Along with Llanos are some promising young athletes who form the BH Team, including Fernando Alarza, Mario Mola and Portugal’s Joao Silva. In addition, female athletes are currently rising in this sport, so dominated by males. Recently incorporated Gurutze Frades competes side by side with Catriona Morrison, who is no stranger to the podium.

Eneko Llos

“It would be a great goal to win Hawaii in under eight hours” Llanos is currently the Long Distance Triathlon World Championship runner-up, in a 2012 competition held in his birthplace, Vitoria-Gasteiz. Eneko continues to top the Ironman charts where his incredible physical condition has led him to top 10 finishes on 3 occasions in the Hawaii Ironman, including one silver medal.

G6 is a racing bike, a mover, a devourer of kilometres, aggressive, wind cutter and with which you will achieve maximum performance and the best results because it encourages you to go fast.

The Ultralight is a bike that has been totally designed for competition, dynamic and demanding of the rider. With the Ultralight you will transform all your efforts into acceleration and power.

Quartz means balance. It is an efficient bike that provides perfect performance on all types of terrains, both on the flat and uphill.

The sharp profile of the frame provides the aerodynamic efficiency for reaching maximum speed on the flat and maximum efficiency with each pedal motion.

The minimalist and ultra light design of the frame offers you with each pedal motion instantaneous reactivity and radical sportsmanship.

Aerodynamically streamlined, the semi-sloping geometry of the Quartz is ideal for a wide range of riders since it can satisfy all their needs.

All the components of the G6 have been designed with aerodynamic performance in mind so that you can achieve high speeds and tackle the bends with total precision and reaction.

The Ultralight will allow you to reach mountain passes more easily, the pedal motion does not entail any effort and changes of pace are much simpler, immediate and millimetrically precise.

Its reactive, aerodynamic and precise frame works to its full capacity and offers great stability and comfort to the rider.

Y]jg\qfYea[k

mdljYda_`l

Light and aerodynamic

More than light, ultra light

The G6 is very light, the medium-sized only weighs 840 g, without sacrificing its low aerodynamic coefficient because it has been manufactured from only one piece of carbon.

The Ultralight is ultra light, the medium-sized only weighs 747 g, and is made of 100% high modulus carbon. It is there for you to exploit all your power when you most need it.

dYl]jYdkla^^f]kk Maximum stiffness without sacrificing the aerodynamics The key parts of the G6’s frame have been oversized in order to achieve maximum stiffness without sacrificing its aerodynamic design. The G6 maximises the lateral stiffness by resizing the stays, the model 386 bottom bracket offers more strength to the frame tubes and the head tube with a 1.5” bearing maximises the strength in that area. All these contribute to achieve high speeds, even on winding roads or alternating bends, since they allow the bike to be ridden with precision on the chosen course without experiencing any form of turbulence.

~‡‡Ékla^^

ZYdYf[] The lightest and most aero of its type The Quartz frame is a 100% carbon monocoque and, therefore, very light since the medium-sized only weighs 950 g. Its lines and its geometry are inspired from the G6 and the Ultralight.

[ge^gjl

100% stiff, 100% light

Light and aerodynamic

The Ultralight achieves something almost unthinkable: it combines absolute and total stiffness with stylised and extremely light tubes.

The Quartz is a balanced bike that combines all the virtues of the G6 and the Ultralight. Its aerodynamic light streamlines do not diminish the stiffness of the structure.

This machine achieves absolute total stiffness both vertically and laterally since it does not flex when power is demanded from it.

The head tube, slightly raised, maximises total ergonomics of the rider with the machine and provides a more comfortable position. Likewise, it gains in lateral and vertical stiffness and, therefore, in efficiency thanks to its model 386 bottom bracket.

BH has balanced this complex equation thanks to a triple combination: the tube of the seat at the bottom bracket has been widened, the head tube with a 1.5” bearing maximises the strength of that area and the innovative model 386 bottom bracket offers greater strength to the tubes of the frame and provides greater resistance. The result is an ultra light, reactive and explosive bike.

28

The semi-sloping geometry guarantees the rider with a great capacity for reaction and greater stability. The result is a frame with an efficient performance with each pedal motion suitable for tackling any race or competition regardless of the route.

Designed to cut the wind

An uphill missile

Endurance technology

The stylised geometry of the G6 is designed to achieve the optimal aero positioning and to reach maximum speed on flat roads.

The geometry of the Ultralight allows achievement of maximum performance and attainment of excellence specifically on steep slopes or climbs, or facing bends at full speed.

BH has bid in its Quartz range to offer to a wide range of racing cyclists all the R&D and innovation values of the brand.

This attacking position, ideal for achieving high speeds and for cutting the wind, is achieved by the G6 thanks to the shorter stays that allow for excellent traction, a setback seat post, the low head tube, the compact horizontal tube and the shallow fork rake.

The shortest distance between axles, without the setback seat post, the low head tube, the compact horizontal tube and the shallow fork rake make the Ultralight an authentic uphill missile and allow the rider to perform explosive and dramatic changes of pace.

The efficient and balanced design, its optimal vertical absorption, the aerodynamic coefficient, the endurance geometry, the model 386 bottom bracket, the head tube slightly raised and the 27.2” seat post make of Quartz a comfortable and efficient bike that offers all the benefits and performance sought after by both professional and cycling amateurs.

\]ka_foal`j]kmdlk Maximum agility and total efficiency with each pedal motion The geometry of the G6, the Ultralight and the Quartz provide these three models with maximum agility when pushed to the limit, it allows achievement of 100% efficiency with each pedal motion and optimal vibration absorption. The design allows for steering changes in demanding areas to be more pleasant and simpler. The reaction is precise and immediate and the racing is achieved with maximum precision. As with the G6, the Ultralight and the Quartz, the cable routing is inside the frame to gain maximum aerodynamics, to provide maximum protection and to facilitate maintenance, both being compatible with electric transmissions.

nYja]lq G6 offers a wide range of models in order to satisfy all tastes.

Our innovative frame building technology allows BH to accurately control and optimize the material thickness throughout the entire frame design. Selecting the most appropriate carbon to support our targets for weight, stiffness and ride compliancy allow BH to achieve the engineered balance that our frames are known for. The result is a spectacular, lightweight yet aerodynamic design with exceptional rider power transfer and unparalleled vertical compliancy. The innovative seat post design is another key part of the efficient aerodynamic development of the G6 range, this coupled with the crisp shifting performance achieved by the full carbon front derailleur mount offers the rider unrivalled performance.

Jonathan Hivert SojaS

“From the first time that I rode the G6, I saw that it combined the two elements that I need in order to feel comfortable on a bike: resistance and rigidity. With this model, BH has achieved an engineered machine that gives me all of the sensations that a cyclist could ask for on the road. The sense of lightness offered by the G6 is combined with a total control, with no room for improvisation. This confidence makes me very comfortable and offers me the assurance of knowing that I have the perfect ally to help me achieve victory at every stage”.

6. Cable guides within the frame. Maximum protection, easy maintenance

Maximum handling and rigidity

The new G6 frame design benefits from the same compact frame geometry as the G5. Responsive acceleration, precise handling, confidence inspiring, and the perfect fit all describe the geometry in our G6 model.

7. Sloping geometry. Optimal handling 4

The G6 frame utilizes a compact frame geometry that provides exceptional standover heights in all frame sizes and allows for greater tortional frame stiffness. The frames geometry was derived from years of development experience focused on building some of the best climbing bikes in the world that offer optimal handling, immediate acceleration and an overall confidence like nothing else in the industry.

4. The most aerodynamic fork The full carbon fork, fits the headset like a glove, forming a smooth transition between the two elements. It is, without a doubt, the most aerodynamic fork that BH has ever manufactured.

5. Oversized bottom bracket. Maximum lateral stiffness The bottom bracket of the G6 utilizes the BB386EVO architecture and measures 86.5mm in overall width. This new bottom bracket design offers the G6 frame, a greater surface area for improved lateral frame stiffness. The BH designers were able to increase the cross sectional areas of the tubing while reducing overall wall thickness thus increasing the torsional stiffness in the bottom bracket. The result is increased lateral frame stiffness, improved efficiency and total control with every turn of the pedals.

1. Designed to Climb BH has always been faithful to a principle: Develop agile bicycles designed and engineered to effectively convert the rider’s power and strength into speed. The Ultralight frame is the ultimate expression of this centenarian philosophy applied to competitive cycling. The Ultralight is everything you expect in a top level racing bike; extremely lightweight, laterally stiff and very efficient. It is an ideal frame design for producing the best results from any rider. The minimalistic look was designed and engineered around our Hollow Core Internal Molding Technology, resulting in the lightest, yet stiffest frame we have ever produced. The power transfer from rider to wheel is second to none. Designed to climb, the development team applied this motto to every aspect of the frame, ultimately producing a frame specifically suited for racing. Climbing, descending and breaking free from the Peloton is made easier and requires less effort thanks to the incredible stiffness-toweight ratio of this proprietary carbon blend, resulting in uncompromised frame responsiveness.

2. We build bicycles from the inside out The Ultralight frame is the successful technical result of years of Research and Development within our Innovation department at BH Bikes. The monocoque frame is a complete carbon design, manufactured using

our own balanced layup of high modulus carbon fiber. Using our advanced molding technology, we are able to mold each frame with incredible precision. In this way, BH brings out the best results of the material, eliminating manufacturing inconsistencies and building a frame consistent with the engineered intentions conceived for the specific design.

Re-balancing forces Power transmission

Our innovative molding technology allows for complete control and optimization of the material thickness as well as individual overlap between individual carbon layers during the frame fabrication process.The result, is a frame that is stiff and efficient, ideal for climbing, yet surprisingly compliant.

In addition, the Ultralight has a crankset group designed exclusively for the model.

3. 1.5” Integrated carbon headset. Greater torsional stiffness. The fork leverages all the same layup and molding techniques used in the development of the Ultralight frame in order to create an incredibly stiff, yet vertically compliant 305 gram full carbon design that seamlessly integrate with the overall design of the Ultralight frame.

5. Cable guides within the frame. Maximum protection, simple maintenance The innovative Ultralight cable guide system offers the possibility of integrating mechanical or electronic systems, guaranteeing maximum protection.

4. Crankset BB386 EVO. Increased lateral and vertical stiffness.

6. Compact Geometry. Direct connection to the bicycle

The bottom bracket of the Ultralight utilizes the BB386EVO architecture and measures 86.5mm in overall width. This new bottom bracket design offers the Ultralight frame a greater surface area for improved lateral frame stiffness. The BH designers were able to increase the cross sectional areas of the tubing while reducing overall wall thickness, thus increasing the torsional stiffness in the bottom bracket. The result is increased lateral frame stiffness, improved efficiency and total control with every turn of the pedals.

When the road is inclined, the Ultralight is at its best. It offers an experience that fuses the bicycle and the cyclist, creating a single unstoppable machine. Its studied geometry converts it into an easily-manoeuvrable bicycle that is explosive, quick to change directions and follow any path with great precision. The slightly elevated head tube, the slightly advanced fork placement, the rear triangle geometry with 402 mm. chainstays, and the slight modification of the seat angle give the Ultralight a lower-than-normal centre of gravity.

This new design has enabled BH to increase the size of the down tubes diameter, thus reducing the thickness of the walls and increasing the torsion stiffness by 166% and the rear stiffness by 125%.

This design allows for more precise and fast speed changes, hugging curves at high speeds, attacking uphill climbs either seated or standing, with increased explosiveness, transforming every ounce of energy into power so as to get the best performance out of the most complicated terrains.

As a result, the cyclist may place more demands on the frame, particularly when going uphill, putting all of his/her effort into speed and power.

“For my discipline, it is essential to have a bike that offers me power. During tough moments when your strength starts to wane, it is important to know that my bike isn’t going to let me down and with my Ultralight, I have that assurance. The sense that I can safely take on steep slopes or changes in speed gives me the assurance that I need when going full force. The Ultralight’s lightness allows me to climb long distances at a constant speed and when I am riding this bike I feel that my physical effort is being proportionately compensated”.

Aerolight RC

Competition in its purest state, marking the difference

The ideal bicycle for top triathletes

The Aerolight frame, developed jointly by BH and Eneko Llanos, was designed to slice the wind…

The Aerolight RC is the perfect frame for the triathlete

…reaching high speeds, exploding across flats and efficient ascends.

The Aerolight RC includes many of the top technological and design innovations of the Aerolight frame, while providing a compatible platform desinged to integrate with a wide range of build combinations. The unique seat post design allows for nearly 4 degrees of theoretical seat tube angle adjustment designed to provide the athlete a broad range of fitting options.

The Aerolight is the most advanced triathlon bicycle BH has ever produced. A spectacular design, created for top competition

100% aerodynamic

Optimal air penetration

The Aerolight is made of 100% carbon, from the fork to the rear dropouts

The Aerolight RC frame uses a full carbon frame design to maximize aerodynamics, rider ergonomics and overall frame efficiency

Our innovative Hollow Core Internal Molding Technology allows BH to accurately control and optimize the material thickness throughout the entire frame design.

The Airfoil tube designs incorporate the use of a KammTail technique in areas of the frame most suited for this modified tube section.

Selecting the most appropriate carbon to support our targets for weight, stiffness and ride compliancy allow BH to achieve the engineered balance that our frames are known for.

This design philosophy allows BH to use aggressive airfoil designs that are also efficient in cross wind conditions. With performance always leading our design intentions the final tube geometry is ideally suited for achieving our predetermined frame and fork performance goals.

The result is a spectacular, lightweight yet aerodynamic design with exceptional rider power transfer and unparalleled vertical compliancy.

Maximum lateral and torsion stiffness The Aerolight and the Aerolight RC were developed to be both aerodynamic and efficient The BB386EVO bottom bracket design improves lateral frame stiffness by increasing the overall width and available surface area at this key frame intersection. The BH designers were able to increase the cross sectional areas of the tubing while reducing overall wall thickness to ultimately increase the torsional stiffness in the bottom bracket and rear chainstays. The result is increased lateral frame stiffness, improved efficiency and total control with every turn of the pedals.

Aerolight Exploding across flats and making a difference in uphill climbs Designed for competition in collaboration with Eneko Llanos. Maximum efficiency, aerodynamics, speed, lightness and rigidity

Nobody knows better than the triathletes themselves what they require from a top-level racing bike. To do so, the engineering team and Eneko Llanos worked side by side on the design and development of the new Aerolight, the bike that won the Melbourne Ironman and the BH Zarautz Triathlon.

1. Top competition The Aerolight is the ideal bicycle for top triathletes. It is a bike designed to slice the wind, reach top speeds, explode across the ďŹ&#x201A;ats and make the differences in uphill climbs. Its exceptional design and numerous technological advances are incorporated into this advanced aerodynamic frame. The overall design lines are all the results of numerous brainstorming sessions held by the technical and sports sections of BH in order to attain the most advanced, spectacular and top of the line triathlon bicycle possible.

2. Aerolight Frame The Aerolight frame has been manufactured in accordance with the principles of the other top BH frames, such as the Ultralight and G6 models. In building the Aerolight frame, a number of innovative technologies

have been implemented into the overall development process in order to control and optimize the ideal carbon wall thicknesses for the different locations within the frame. Also the most appropriate carbon layups are developed and then applied to a minimal carbon layer molding technique in order to ensure extreme rigidity in a lightweight frame design.

4

This proprietary manufacturing process uses a combination of high and medium modulus materials in order to attain the high standards demanded by BH.

3. Oversized bottom bracket. Greater torsional stiffness BH oversized the bottom bracket in order to incorporate the BB386EVO system, which ensures greater torsional stiffness and increased rider efďŹ ciency. This innovative design allows the width of the external bottom bracket to be increased to 86.5 mm, providing greater ďŹ&#x201A;exiblity to produce a superior frame design.

3

4. Carbon rear dropouts The carbon rear dropouts ensure precise alignment of the wheel. The rear derailleur hanger is the same as that used for the new G6 and provides exceptional performance when shifting.

A Integrated stem

The combination of the oversized bottom bracket design, allowing the incorporation of the BB386EVO system, together with the position of the chain stays makes the Aerolight frame appropriate for even the widest wheels in the sector. B

52


5. Fork and head tube. The most aerodynamic

6. Seat tube. In attack position

The airfoil shaped front fork blades seamlessly incorporate the front brake and also flows into the base of the head-tube. The head-tube utilizes two 1 1/8th inch bearings in order to keep the head-tube cross section to a minimum.

The aerodynamic seat tube design, allowing for a seat angle of between 74º and 78º allows the rider to adopt a more relaxed or more aggressive positioning. As an optional accessory, there is a telescopic seat tube in accordance with UCI parameters, which may be used in a counter clockwise position.

7. Fully unified front fork The headtube design is built around an 1 1/8” bearing both at the top and bottom race. It has been manufactured in a narrow, stylized shape in order to offer the frame a more aggressive, aerodynamic form. The headtube surface seamlessly blends into the airfoil inspired fork blades which house the cutout for the rear mounted front brake Design.

Eneko Llanos BH T!athlete

“W “When I ride my Aerolight, the bike and I become one. This perfect union an is what makes me continue to use it. My sporting successes would it not be the same if I did not use the n best bike on the market and in my opinion, the Aerolight from BH is a machine that all triathletes would like to have. This is a very aerodynamic bike on which you feel like you are cutting through the wind with every turn of the pedals and where no element prevents my progress. So it is easy to imagine why other athletes are always looking at my Aerolight during the races”.

RC

Adapting to your competitive style The Aerolight RC frame incorporates a wide range of options to adapt to the needs of each competition

1. The triathlon frame that adjusts to all of your needs The Aerolight RC is a machine built to compete in triathlons. It was designed thinking about the aerodynamics of the triathlete, to reach maximum speeds with less effort. Therefore, it includes some of the greatest technological and design innovations of the Aerolight, a reference frame in the triathlon market. The Aerolight RC includes a wide range of options so that the triathlete may prepare the machine based on his/her needs and racing demands. The seat tube may be adjusted in four ways, offering the assembly of any stem, any braking system on the market.

2. Built out of 100% carbon. Aerodynamic speed The Aerolight RC line is built out of 100% carbon, based on the same principles as the other top of the line BH frames like the Ultralight or the Aerolight. It was designed to achieve optimal air penetration and perfect biomechanical positioning.

This patented manufacturing process uses a combination of carbon fibres of high, medium and low modules in order to achieve the high quality standards demanded by BH. In all Aerolight RC tube cross-sections, formulas have been applied and tests and analyses have been undertaken to maximize the frame’s aerodynamics without affecting its rigidity.

3. Oversized bottom bracket. Greater torsional stiffness BH oversized the bottom bracket in order to incorporate the BB386EVO system, which ensures greater torsional stiffness and increased rider efficiency. This innovative design allows the width of the external bottom bracket to be increased to 86.5 mm, providing greater flexiblity to produce a superior frame design.

4. Head set. Allows for incorporation of any stem The narrowness of the head set, at a mere 1 1/8” both in its upper and lower part, lowers the coefficients of air friction. In addition, it is compatible with any standard stem on the market.

5. Seat tube. Optimizing air flow The cross-section uses the aerodynamic Kamm-Tail design, optimizing the passage of air across the seat. This design allows for adjustment of the seat angle in 4 ways so that the racer can attain a more relaxed or a more aggressive posture, depending on the type of competition that he/she is facing.

The combination of the oversized bottom bracket design, allowing the incorporation of the BB386EVO system, together with the position of the chain stays makes the Aerolight frame appropriate for even the widest wheels in the sector.

In building the Aerolight RC frame, innovative technology has been used to allow for control, optimization and personalization of the ideal thicknesses for different frame parts, using the most appropriate carbon for its development with minimal overlapping to ensure extreme rigidity and lightness.

6. Carbon rear dropouts The carbon rear dropouts, as in the G6, Ultralight and Aerolight models, guarantee a precise and efficient wheel alignment. The front derailleur support is the same as that used for the new G6, offering exceptional performance during gear shifts.

7. Asymmetrical rear chainstays The rear chainstay design is asymmetrical, as in the other top of the line BH frames, increasing the lateral stiffness of the frame and improving its efficiency and performance. This design allows for the installation of wider wheels and improves wheel rotation.

8. Internal wiring for mechanical or electronic systems The unique cable guide system of the Aerolight RC frame allows for integration of either mechanical or electronic systems, ensuring maximum protection.

9. Braking system. All the options The Aerolight RC frame offers a standard line of brakes; therefore any braking system is permitted.

10. Geometry The geometry of the new Aerolight RC frame was inspired by the Aerolight and, while less aggressive; it offers the cyclist an attack position and responsiveness that is necessary when racing. The elevated head set and non-integrated seat tube which incorporates the clamp on system of the G6 line, offer a uniform distribution of force.

3 1. Designed for competition When BH Bikes developed a frame for cyclo-cross it was thinking about competition and what racers in this discipline required from their machine, whatever terrain or conditions they came up against along the circuit.

BH designed and manufactured the new RX Team frame with collaboration and input from some of the most famous, experienced and demanding cyclo-cross riders in Europe. The frame also incorporates the best design ideas that BH has already implemented and integrated into its top-level frames.

62


Carbon contained in the frame

2. 100% carbon monocoque The new RX Team is a monocoque carbon frame design which utilizes a proprietary layup to customise the frame and reinforce key strength areas while reducing material and weight in less demanding locations of the frame. The arrangement of the carbon fiber layup in the RX frame follows the same principles and concepts as those developed for the Ultralight frame, using a propriatery blend of high, medium and low modulus carbon to achieve the highest quality standards that BH and its riders require from all their frames. The innovative design of the tubes was developed and tested with some of the most famous and demanding cyclotrons riders in Europe to guarantee optimal performance and ensure both stiffness and lightness. In addition, the RX Team frame has been designed and adapted to meet the new standards regarding disc brakes recently approved by the UCI for competition. All these innovations, and technologies incorporated, make the new RX Team frame the perfect candidate for a place of honour in the BH stable. Ultimately, it’s a highly versatile and reliable frame destined for victory.

3. BB386EVO The RX Team frame has been designed around the new BB386EVO bottom bracket system which allows the use of an 86.5 mm shell. Increasing the surface of the shell, means you also greatly increase its torsional rigidity, strength, and the cyclist’s efficiency during a ride or a race.

4. Internal Cable Routing One of the main innovations of the frame is the new cable guide system. In this respect, the RX frames has been inspired by the new G6s. This mechanism, developed by BH, allows for the integration of both mechanical and electronic systems, ensuring maximum protection.

5. Fork. Increased steering precision Another new feature of the RX Team is the fork design. This completely new tapered 1.5 inch fork optimises tortional stiffness while providing the necessary precision in the headset, to prevent noise and vibration while braking. This combined with added tire clearance make for an unbeatable combination.

6. Rear legs. Dual attachment system The carbon rear dropouts incorporate an aluminium dual insert system which allows you to change the distance between the frame dropouts from 130 mm to 135 mm, depending on whether cantilever brakes or disc brakes are being used. If deciding to use disc brakes, the supporting pivot posts for the cantilever brakes can be removed from both the fork and the rear chainstay.

7. Geometry. Propelling your movement The geometry of the RX Team is true to the philosophy of all the frames made by BH. This is a highly reactive competition frame, with exceptional power transfer and uncompromising performance.

Furthermore, the chainstays and fork design, together with the new BB386EVO bottom bracket system, allow for use of the widest wheels in the market.

Isaac Suarez

“To b become Cyclocross champion of S Spain I had to work very hard, but I always trusted my brand of reference. ref BH has done a great job with the RX TEAM, incorporating lightness and T rrigidity in equal parts. Its lightness gives me dynamism and mobility g while the rigidity provides me with speed and safety. The muddiest areas of the foot stretches are key moments when speed and lightness are the greatest protagonists. For these moments, I count on one of the most responsive bikes of on the market, giving me the confidence and security to take on any terrain with maximum assurance.”

Comparative Study

What you should bear in mind when choosing a wheel? 1

angle of attack The larger the wheel size the smaller the angle of attack. This means that the wheel sinks less in holes as it tends to pass over them

27.5er

29er

The main advantage of using a larger wheel is that it’s easy to move over obstacles on the ground. It’s makes stones, branches and roots seem smaller than they should because in proportion to the size of the wheel, they are relatively smaller. When we face an obstacle it is as though the wheel needs to climb a small hill.

2

inertia A larger wheel requires more power to start, but once you’re moving, inertia provides longer momentum for each pedal stroke and the bike travels farther.

3

27.5er

29er

traction and cushioning A larger wheel provides a greater bearing surface on the ground, i.e. its “footprint” is larger This results, on the one hand, in greater tyre grip and lower likelihood of sliding. The traction of the 27.5er and 29er models is significantly higher than the 26er.

27.5er

29er

Moreover, the greater surface area means that the wheel sinks less on soft surfaces, such as snow, mud or sand.

4

ride and handling The 29er bikes offer a more stable ride and the 27.5er’s provide better handling on descents Smaller wheels have the advantage of greater rigidity - so the 27.5er wheel provides for more aggressive use.

5

27.5er

29er

acceleration and rotation

27.5er

Diameter and weight directly affect acceleration. It is more difficult to accelerate and brake with a larger wheel; rotation is also more difficult, but they maintain a higher top speed.

Guaranteed fun for more aggressive riding

With the Lynx 29er range, once the bike is moving inertia maintains momentum with each pedal stroke.

Rigidity and stability, so that the wheels can withstand our rhythm and riding style.

The 29er’s angle of attack means that obstacles do not make us lose momentum because they are smaller in proportion to wheel size.

Easy to accelerate and turn on steep and twisty ground. It offers great flexibility and the right manoeuvrability in the most difficult situations.

The tyre’s grip or traction on the ground is greater because its footprint is larger.

Geometry for every wheel The chainstays are sufficiently long for any type of wheel in the Lynx line (in the 29er Lynx 4.8 it is 430 mm while in the 27.5er Lynx 6 it is only 426 mm). All of the bikes have a specific head tube angle for each model. The height of the bottom bracket has been adjusted so that it does not exceed 335 mm in any model. The goal of the Lynx geometry is to provide frames that can be adapted to different types of riding and different types of riders.

Split Piv Discover the Split Pivot system of the Lynx line More efficient power transition and more consistent and progressive suspension

The Lynx is designed by and for bikers. They are the full suspension machines that we always dreamt of riding. The Lynx line uses the innovative and successful Split Pivot system. BH is the only European brand that has patented this innovative system that was developed by legendary biker Dave Weagle. Dave is the inventor of some of the most successful MTB suspension systems and he recognizes that the Lynx are the best-designed bikes today. Split Pivot offers an extraordinary sensitivity and a great absorption capacity for rough ground, offering the sensation of having extra range in the ride.

1. What is Split Pivot technology? Split Pivot is a floating suspension system developed by BH based on traction, pedalling efficiency, handling and the bicycle’s rigidity. This system allows for separate action on three forces produced on the bicycle: pedalling, braking and suspension. Thus, BH has solved, one by one, the problems that are produced by double suspension and has achieved a system that is years beyond other systems that ultimately penalize one of these three forces. The obtained result is maximum pedalling efficiency with consistent and progressive suspension. The advanced rear suspension of the Lynx allows it to have a greater range while being very lightweight.

2. The heart of the Split Pivot system This system is formed by four pivot points that technically work like a single pivot: tThe concentric Split pivot tThe two pivot points located in the tie rods tThe primary one located above the bottom bracket

3. Key points in the Split Pivot system 3.1. Anti-Squat. Lynx offers a drastic improvement in anti-bobbing, which is minimal, and an accelerating efficiency that is superior to that of other models. 3.2. Braking-Squat. In the Lynx, braking does not affect the distance covered by the rear wheel because suspension remains continually active when braking. There is improved grip when braking, thus offering the rider increased confidence. 3.3. Leverage Ratio. The Split Pivot suspension controls the acceleration and braking processes instead of the shockabsorber, offering a much more progressive Leverage Ratio. 3.4. Floating Mount. The shockabsorber is maintained in a floating position and moves when the suspension is in operation. This permits the desired progressiveness and achieves the desired suspension curve.

80


vot Lynx bikes need less platform in the shock-absorber since the Split Pivot notably improves the bicycle’s behaviour in small pot holes thanks to absorption properties in the areas where increased support is necessary without creating a rocking effect, offering the cyclist the needed range.

Da^ Wg. Eng Engineering developer of the d Split Pivot System Sp

“ “What was I looking for when developing the Split Pivot system? Separation of the acceleration forces from those of braking in the suspension. The result is a system having maximum pedalling efficiency and a suspension that functions consistently and progressively”.

T‫` ה‬ub. sus‫פ‬nXо \ kin =ke

The new Lynx 4.8 29” is more versatile, offering eYpaemeh]\Yddaf_]^x[a]f[q and increased absorption The new Lynx 4.8 29” with 120 mm of rear range was designed to obtain maximum usage versatility and maximum pedalling efficiency, absorption and handling, thanks to the Split Pivot system. In addition, the kinematics dedicated to the 29” tyres offers a perfect control of the 120 mm of range with the sensation of having an additional 20 mm.

1. Made of 100% Carbon Monocoque construction of the front triangle and chainstays The Lynx 4.8 Carbon frame was constructed from a single piece of 100% monocoque carbon, offering uniformity to the entire frame and eliminating critical areas as there are no connection points between the tubes. For its creation, the BH team worked closely with leading carbon fibre manufacturers. The Lynx 4.8 was developed with HM (High Module T40, T30 and T24 of Toray) technology in order to offer increased rigidity with the same weight.

2. Split Pivot The new Split Pivot Dropout design is more compact in 18 mm as compared to previous models and, at the same time, more rigid thanks to the use of larger diameter bearings.

82


4.8 3. The shortest rear axle on the market BH has managed to reduce the length of the rear chainstays to 430 mm, transforming the Lynx bike into a full-suspension bike manufactured in carbon with the shortest rear axle on the market. Thanks to this notable innovation, which has passed all of the approved resistance tests, the Lynx is a superior bicycle to the rest, both in responsiveness and handling. This great technological advance developed by BH allows for the assembly of tyres of up to 2.4 inches and any type of chainrings (2x or 3x).

Also the new system of joining the chainstays and the main triangle eases maintenance as it permits faster and simpler assembly and dismounting. The compact geometry of the Lynx 4.8 converts it into a bicycle that is very manoeuvrable and stable, thanks to a stand-over and a low bottom bracket height (320 mm).

4. Launched head tube angle offering extra stability This advance makes this 29â&#x20AC;? bike one of the most manoeuvrable and precise on the market.

5. Integrated head tube Incorporates the integrated conical carbon head tube, technology of the Lynx 6 and Ultimate frames. Made from 100% carbon and with no aluminium inserts, it is lightweight and notably increases the side rigidity and torsion stiffness.

6. A wider bottom bracket for an increased torsion stiffness The increased width of the Press fit 92 bottom bracket allowed BH to widen the diagonal tubes and the shock-absorption bridge by several degrees to provide it with a maximum level of rigidity and to guarantee minimum flexion between the front and rear triangle.

7. 142x12 rear wheel axle. Improved transmission, greater stability

11. Enduro Bearing. Small speed rotation for heavy loads In the Lynx 4.8, all of the pivots rotate around high quality Enduro Bearing, specifically developed to support high workloads and offering a small rotation speed. Enduro Bearings, worldwide leaders in the sector, require minimal maintenance. This is due to the fact that they are the only bearings created to offer small rotation speed and to receive heavy loads. Impacts are always produced in the areas bearing heavy loads.

12. All of the top-of-theline components In creating the Lynx 4.8 29er, BH used aluminium and standard TORX hardware, offering increased longevity. Rods and shafts are made of 7075 forged aluminium and CNC finishing.

The rear axle incorporates a Q12-142x12 system that increases torsion stiffness by 30% in comparison to the 135x9 system. This notably improves energy transmission and rear axle stability.

8. Direct Mount Full Derailleur The Direct Mount derailleur offers maximum quality and reliability in the mounting of the front derailleur. Being fully integrated in the frame allows for an increased rigidity and an absolute precision when shifting gears. Its design simplifies its adjustment and offers precision in gear changing.

4. New Fox and Rock Shox suspensions. Simplifying the interaction between user and bicycle The new suspensions especially developed for the Lynx, offer floating movement that assures a very linear movement that is at the same time extremely sensitive and absorbent. The combination of these suspensions with the Split Pivot system offers a decreased pressure on the shock-absorbers. This system results in a more intuitive suspension control and adjustment in order to achieve the desired behaviour.


Nicolas Yann Pr Product Manar MTB BH Bikes M “T Lynx line offers some of the “The best bikes in regards to rigidityb weight, design and finish. w

5. New chainstays that permit tyres of up to 2.4”

We have worked hard on the rear portion of the bike to obtain a shorter rear having a greater range and that is very lightweight.

BH has managed to construct some of the shortest chainstays on the market at only 426 mm allowing for an increased handling and superior responsiveness in comparison to other bikes having similar characteristics.

The Split Pivot is a system that allows for a superior absorption with the same pedalling efficiency. We are very pleased with the results achieved for the new line of 27.5” and 29”.

This important innovation results in a true technical prowess with the possibility of using wheels measuring up to 2.4 inches and any type of chainrings (2x or 3x).

6. Integrated conical direction The integrated conical direction is another important technological advance which notably increases the side rigidity and torsion stiffness.

7. Press fit 92 bottom bracket. Increased torsion stiffness The width of the bottom bracket allows for an increased section of the diagonal tubes and the shockabsorbers bridge, resulting in one of the lightest bikes ever, having values that increase the frame’s rigidity for its maximum expression and to guarantee a minimal flexion between the front and rear triangle.

12. Enduro bearings All of the pivots of the Lynx range rotate around high quality Enduro Bearing, specifically developed to support high workloads and offering a small rotation speed. Enduro Bearings, worldwide leaders in the sector, require minimal maintenance. This is due to the fact that they are the only bearings created to offer small rotation speed and to receive heavy loads. Impacts are always produced in the areas bearing heavy loads.

8. Improved transmission, increased stability. 142x12 rear wheel axle The rear axle incorporates a Q12-142x12 system that increases torsion stiffness by 30% in comparison to the 135x9 system. This new feature in the Lynx range notably improves energy transmission and rear axle stability.

9. Direct Mount derailleur. Easy adjustment, total precision The direct anchoring of the Direct Mount derailleur guarantees simple adjustment and maximum degrees of reliability and precision. Being fully integrated in the frame means offers an increased rigidity and an absolute precision when shifting gears. Its design simplifies its adjustment.

13. Finite element test

Lynx 6 27.5” Alloy

Different stimulations and computerized tests were undertaken by BH’s development team to detect and discover the areas of the Lynx frame bearing the heaviest loads and to learn the frame’s response. The overall design was validated using FEA (Finite Element Analysis).

The new aluminium Lynx 6 is perfect for taking on all types of paths and terrains, from technical climbs to steep slopes. To accomplish this, BH has developed a specific geometry and kinematics for tyres of 27.5. Its 150 mm of range, in both suspensions, allows the rider to enjoy the most challenging of paths and to manoeuver the bike with a smoothness and increased comfort.

14. And all of the details in order to ride to the maximum The Lynx 150 mm line has parts and thru axles made of 7075 aluminium which are over-sized and can handle the most extreme usage conditions.

Made of aluminium. Lighter and easy to handle The frame of the new Lynx 6 27.5” Alloy was manufactured out of aluminium alloy 6061 -T4, T6 of triple thickness, guaranteeing its solidity, exceptional lightness and total rigidity. At only 2.7 kg this extreme lightness allows for an increased handling in difficult situations. The headset, bottom bracket, bridge, tie rods and legs are made of cold forged aluminium 7075 and offer these areas an improved weight/resistance relationship since they are the most critical parts of the frame.

Ultimate is the frame selected by the MTB BH-SR Suntour-KMC team and its racers Julie Bresset, 2011 and 2012 World Champion and London 2012 Olympic gold medal winner, Maxime Marotte, Stephane Tempier and Galician Pablo Rodríguez, Spain’s cyclo-cross under-23 champion.

1. Designed for competition Ultimate, both in 29” and in 27.5”, represents the pinnacle in hardtail MTB frames, meeting the needs of and most demanding levels of top competition. The carbon monocoque frame, lightweight, rigid, responsive and technological, designed and developed specifically to succeed in competition. The integrated design of the Ultimate frame, with all of its innovations and details, allows the cyclist to transform all of his/ her potential into performance, obtaining very direct sensations. The frame’s geometry and build, with flattened and angular tubes is reminiscent of a fast time trial bike.

2. 100% carbon monocoque frame. Explosive and reliable in extreme situations The Ultimate frame is a one-piece, 100% carbon monocoque frame, offering uniformity to the entire structure from the head tube to the rear dropouts, and eliminated critical areas since it has no joints or welding points between the tubes. When developing the frame, the BH team worked closely with carbon fibre and resin manufacturers to obtain frames that are lighter and with greater stiffness for each size. The tube design, the curve of the seat stays or the seat tube, result the Ultimate’s behaviour being explosive and reliable in extreme conditions.

8

The Ultimate provides rigidity and excellent vibration absorption as it is built with high-modulus carbon fibre, made by the world leader in the sector and identical to those used in the airline industry and in Formula 1. Throughout the monocoque frame, the high-modulus carbon fibres –T40, T30, and T24– are configured taking into account the weight and force it will have to withstand in order to strengthen the more delicate areas and lighten those that don’t have to bear so much weight.

This combination of fibres provides stiffness, strength, elasticity, and maximum absorption in this top-ofthe range frame.

]

All these improvements and innovations allow BH to offer a frame with high stiffness and low weight, 1,000 grams in size M.

3. Semi-integrated seat post

7. Direct Mount front derailleur anchor The Direct Mount derailleur offers a high level of quality and reliability in the front derailleur anchor. Its development, fully integrated with the frame, gives greater rigidity and accuracy when shifting gears. The design makes adjustment extremely easy.

5

This light weight of only 110 gr was achieved by achieved by designing the top of the tube with an angle of 80°, making it possible to fine-tune the thickness of the post without affecting the weight it supports. The 72° tilt angle of the seat tube has been maintained.

4. Press Fit 92 bottom bracket. Wider, more rigid in torsion The Press Fit 92 bottom bracket, with a width of 92 mm, increases the torsional rigidity while decreasing the wall thickness by increasing the diagonal tube section.

2

5. Integrated tapered carbon head tube. Increased lateral rigidity The integrated tapered carbon head tube, made of 100% carbon, specific technology characterizing these top of the line frames, significantly increases the lateral and torsional stiffness.

6. 142X12 rear axle. Better transmission, increased stability The rear axle uses the Q12-142x12 system in order to increase torsional stiffness, as compared to the previous 135x9. This innovation improves power transmission as well as rear axle stability.

8. EVO Brake Mount System The chainstays have been specifically developed to accommodate the EVO Brake Mount system. The system is located on the rear chainstay of the frame and has an optimum tilt angle which reduces braking vibrations on the rear wheel.

9. Cable guide inside the frame BH’s patented system of the gear cable guide and derailleur inside the frame allowed BH to lighten the frame weight, to dispense with the hood, whilst maintaining the highest quality standards. The EVO Brake Mount design means the brake cable is well protected.

10. Geometry We maintain the same geometry as previously, validated by World Cup victories. The flattened design of the tubes is reminiscent of road and time trial bikes. This responsive XC bike is designed to optimise performance, is aimed at competition, and is born to race.

11. More models and for all tastes, in 27.5” and 29” BH has Ultimate frames in 27.5” and 29” with a geometry that is specifically adapted for each turn of the wheels as well as for the ergonomics of the cyclist during competition.

2. Monocoque construction. Optimum comfort level and lighter weight

High modulus carbon

3. Rear axle wheel 135x9. Increased power

The Ultimate RC frame is manufactured out of high modulus T24 and T30 carbon under a process allowing for its precise compacting and moulding, evenly distributing the resin so as to filter any potential vibrations. In developing the Ultimate RC, BH worked closely with leading manufacturers of carbon fibre and resin to create a frame that offers optimal levels of comfort and weight.. The construction of the tubes and the lay-up configuration of the carbon meant BH could produce a frame with an optimal geometry and minimum vibrations to guarantee the rider a high degree of comfort. Throughout the structure, the carbon fibres were arranged taking into account the weight and force they would have to withstand, with the aim of strengthening the delicate areas and lightening areas that don’t have to bear so much weight. The result is a topof-the range frame which guarantees stiffness, lightness, strength, elasticity and maximum absorption The design and technology applied in the shape of its tubes and the curvature of the seat stays make the behaviour of the Ultimate RC agile, reliable, and comfortable. All these enhancements made to the frame have enabled BH to build a highly rigid frame with a low weight of just 1,100 grams.

6

The rear axle uses the Q12-135x9 system which offers a high degree of torsion stiffness. This directly influences the power transmission and the rear axle stability.

4. The Direct Mount front derailleur anchor. Increased rigidity The Direct Mount derailleur offers a high level of quality and reliability in the front derailleur anchor. Its development, fully integrated with the frame, gives greater rigidity and accuracy when shifting gears. The design makes adjustment extremely easy.

5. EVO Brake Mount System. Less vibration The chainstays have been developed specifically to accommodate the EVO Brake Mount system. Its optimum tilt angle reduces brake vibrations on the rear wheel, increasing braking power and reducing the annoying noise produced when braking. The new location in the chainstays protects the rear brake calliper from potential snags and knocks, thus increasing safety when racing.

6. Geometry. Perfect for technical courses BH has kept the exceptional geometry achieved by the Ultimate over the years. The Ultimate RC is a highly responsive endurance bike designed to optimise performance.

EVO Brake Mount System

Technology Hydroforming technology allows BH to design attractive frames with high resistance and lightness coefficients while maintaining the maximum quality standards demanded by the brand in all of its models. It allows for the creation of personalized tubes with a greater rigidity in critical areas as well as a greater lightness in areas where it is not needed. Thus, the design of the Expert frames combines an extra stiffness in the lower part with a high level of comfort and flexibility in the upper tubes. This offers a great capacity for vertical absorption as well as lending additional lateral stiffness to the frame. The 6061 aluminium frame with double thickness and Hydroforming technology with double thickness) offers greater stiffness to the more delicate parts and a greater flexibility to those areas where this rigidity is not required.

Integrated tapered aluminium head tube The integrated tapered aluminium head tube, exclusive technology of BH’s Lynx frames, is another important technological development incorporated in the Expert frames. This new head tube significantly increases lateral and torsional stiffness. Integrated conical headset

Direct Mount front derailleur anchor The Direct Mount derailleur offers a high degree of quality and reliability in the front derailleur anchor. Its development, fully integrated with the frame, offers an increased rigidity and precision when shifting gears. This design greatly eases adjustment.

EVO Brake Mount System The chainstays have been specifically designed to accommodate the EVO Brake Mount system. This system is located near the frame’s rear chainstay and has an optimal tilt angle to reduce rear wheel braking vibrations. The rear seat stays have been designed and manufactured with a specific design and curvature to absorb any vibrations resulting from minor impacts. Thus, the frame geometry offers a great sense of comfort and responsiveness. The two rear dropouts are also manufactured out of forged aluminium and have been specifically designed to accommodate the EVO Brake Mountain system, as in the Ultimate and Ultimate RC frames.

Geometry. A great sense of comfort and responsiveness The Expert frame was inspired by the successful Ultimate range. Both models share the same geometry and the headset offers a comfortable and relaxed riding position for the cyclist. This geometry was specifically developed for a 27.5 bicycle.

Ped rtín ““It It is is clear that BH has a lot of experience e ex xp with MTB bikes. If tthat th h ha a was not the case, it would be b e hard to understand how the new n e Expert model frame has all off the characteristics of the most o advanced models without giving up a any of its versatility. Aesthetically a speaking, this is a very attractive bike with a very lightweight frame that urges you to keep riding until you can’t go any further.

When riding the Expert, I was able to dominate every movement, feeling the rigidity and flexibility offered by its technological design. I loved trying it out so that I could feel what it is like to ride an innovative new 27.5”.”

This type of wheels allows you to attain higher speeds as your inertia is maintained while you roll. They also have critical parts, such as the lower support, which has an extreme stiffness, and lighter parts where this stiffness is not required. This gives the Peak a level of comfort not offered by other frames.

5.For all types of cyclists The attractive Peak frame has been designed with clean lines and soft solders. The colours of the graphics lend the frame dynamism and a technological spirit. Furthermore, as the Peak is designed for a wide range of riders, it is available in many sizes. The Peakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high level of performance and efďŹ ciency make it a bike with unbeatable value for money.

3. EVO Brake Mount System. Less braking vibrations The chainstays of the Peak frame have been speciďŹ cally developed to accommodate the EVO Brake Mount system. The system is located on the rear chainstay of the frame and has an optimum tilt angle which reduces braking vibrations on the rear wheel and protects the brakes from knocks.

T They are models that have become more popular over recent years, m stirring increasing interest. The s Peak 29 has very easy handling and stability, in addition to gaining more ground with every turn of the pedals.
