The frame of the new PIKES PEAK – made from high-quality carbon – weighs a mere 2380 grams and is available for two different areas of use, depending on the setup: “The enduro model with 165 mm of travel comes with slacker angles and an increased bottom bracket height for smoother running and more ground clearance on speedy downhill rides. The trail version with a 150 mm fork on the contrary comes with a steeper seat and head tube angle for improved cornering and more propulsion. Depending on the setup, the PIKES PEAK has different riding characteristics,” explains Max Sistenich, developer at ROSE Bikes.
New: PROgression and GEOmetry technology
Another metamorphosis is offered by the brand-new PROgression and GEOmetry technology patented by ROSE Bikes and used for the first time on the PIKES PEAK. This system allows the rider to adapt the characteristics of the PIKES PEAK to the prevailing terrain with a flick of the wrist and on the fly, e.g. on the trail. The term is composed of the words progression and geometry. Progression describes the rear stay characteristics and the resulting bottom-out protection. By setting up the bike’s geometry, you can adjust head and seat tube angle, as well as the bottom bracket drop,” says Max about the new feature.
