Here it is, one of the fastest mountain bikes of our range. The frame: lightweight, of high-quality and made of carbon. The components: reliable, durable and with top features. The X 1700 Spline Two wheel set by DT Swiss is no exception. The Swiss manufacturer is known for smooth running wheels. Their modern wide base is made of a high-end aluminium alloy and stands out for a robust rim end connection thanks to a moulded component and for the possibility to mount tubeless tyres. The fine hubs of the wheel set are also developed by DT Swiss and allow for the use of absolutely straight spokes without the otherwise common elbows thanks to their special shape. The highly precise sprockets of the patented ratchet freewheel mechanism make sure the hub is extremely low-wear and durable. Two reliable Shimano XT brakes with 180 mm and 160 mm discs reliably stop the bike after a fast acceleration.
The ROSE GRANITE CHIEF 1 is our trail adventurer. Equipped with 150 mm of travel, it offers enough reserves to even master rougher tours with ease. When it comes to the performance of a bike, the rear stay plays a central role. Response, suspension performance, enough reserves when it really matters. At the rear stay of the GRANITE CHIEF 1, a RockShox Monarch RT3 does its job. This shock not only stands out for the usual high quality offered by the company RockShox, but it also impresses with its technical features. Among them are an adjustable compression with the three different positions Open/Pedal/Lock. When in the OPEN position, the full range of travel can be used, while the travel is reduced in the PEDAL mode to achieve a significantly tighter suspension. When turned into the third position (LOCK), the rear stay suspension is completely locked out. Even the basis model already features a rear derailleur of very high quality: The name Shimano XT is already a legend and stands for top performance, low weight and high durability
Elephants on the loose – here comes the elephant bull THE TUSKER 1! This bike is not only sensational, but it also shines with a high-quality AL-7005 aluminium frame and ambitious parts. The aluminium fork and the wheel set of THE TUSKER have been especially designed for this bike by ROSE. With an incredible rim width of 80 mm, it securely holds the more than 4-inch wide wheel even in case of a steeper banking. To ensure that THE TUSKER 1 is agile to handle despite its huge dimensions, the rims are drilled between the 32 spokes to make them lighter – like it is done for trail bikes, too. The crankset used is a solid Race Face Ride one with carefully forged crank arms. Additional Shimano XT and SLX components top off the bike’s features. Thanks to the Shimano XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur and a Shimano XT 10-speed cassette, the elephant bull is even extremely agile in demanding terrain. Two 180 mm large disc brakes of the Shimano Deore model stop him with ease.
