Enjoy the advantages of an electronic shifting system right from the start – Di2 from the start! Lightning-fast, precise and defined shifting processes as well as free programmability thanks to the included software – the X-LITE CRS-3100 Di2 offers drivetrain technology of tomorrow. Based on the mechanical Shimano Ultegra, the Ultegra Di2 shifting system is only slightly heavier and offers a whole new shifting dimension. Moreover, the bike comes with elegant DT Swiss wheels. The R 20 Dicut stand out for a low weight and top-level technology. The rims are welded and tubeless ready; ultra-stiff New Aero Nail Head spokes offer stability and smooth running – and all this at a weight of a mere 1500 grams per pair. In issue 5/2015, the TOUR magazine chose the X-LITE CRS-3100 Di2 as the test winner with a grade of 1,5 (excellent)! It further states: “The lightest bike tested comes with a Di2 shifting system [...]. The test riders were thrilled by the bike's agile behaviour. The contact points on saddle and handlebar were also highly praised."
The X-LITE CRS-3000 allows for a perfect start! Based on a top frame, the bike comes with racing components that open up all possibilities. The Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset used really is a secret weapon regarding performance and reliability and what’s more, it is available at an attractive price. It features the same technical innovations as the top groupsets. The beautiful cockpit comes from the company Ritchey, just like the well-designed Ritchey WCS Carbon Monolink FlexLogic seat post. The carbon seat post has a special system to mount a saddle and allows for a precise adjustment of saddle position and angle. Moreover, an extra wide three-bolt saddle clamp reduces the stress for carbon seat stays. The magazine RoadBIKE writes in the issue 04/2015: “Incredibly lightweight, lightning-fast and direct: The Rose impresses road cyclists and offers high comfort on tours – this bike with top features is the clear test winner.”
This doctor knows no compromises when it comes to perfect all-round treatment. The excellent frame of the DR. Z. 3 is equipped with the best parts a doctor’s kit offers. At the front and rear, first-class suspension elements by Fox ensure a sensitive performance. They both feature the Fox DPS system that adapts the sensitivity to the prevailing conditions – easy to operate via a handlebar control. In a combination with a rebound adjustment, the suspension of the racer can be precisely adapted to any rider and any track. The Kashima coating of the Fox 32 Float FIT DPS and the Fox Float DPS shock reduces the breakaway torque to a minimum and irons out everything that gets under the high-quality and agile wheels of the DR. Z. 3. We would also like to mention the exquisite crankset SRAM X0 with high-quality crank arms that move 36/22 chainrings. DR. Z. 3 knows how to heal you!
It is the lightest mountain bike of our range and yet a true technical heavyweight. It tips the scales at only 9000 grams, but offers everything a high-end race bike should have. XTR – sometimes, three letters are enough to make mountain bike enthusiasts’ eyes shine. The ultimate product group of the component giant Shimano has been available for almost a quarter century and it is still a reference for high-end parts other manufacturers have to compete with. So it’s no wonder that our top bike PSYCHO PATH 3 comes with the XTR system. Ranging from the crank with a 34 tooth single chainring, via cassette and rear derailleur through to shifter and brake, every part has the three magic letters written on it. The drivetrain stands out for a low weight and outstanding shifting performance; the brake impresses with great braking power modulation and high stability. A 180 mm front rotor and a 160 mm rear rotor offer best power to master high speeds!
It is the general practitioner among mountain bikes – our DR. Z. 2. Equipped with 100 mm suspension, 29-inch wheels and a lightweight, stiff aluminium frame, the ROSE DR. Z. 2 presents itself as an excellent all-rounder. At the front, the DT Swiss OPM ODL suspension fork cuts a fine figure. Apart from the eponymous, lightweight and yet torsion-resistant lower fork tubes made of cast magnesium (One Piece Mag), the fork features the Open Lock damping system. Just like the DT Swiss X313 rear shock, both suspension elements can be adjusted to the desired sensitivity with a flick of the wrist – ranging from ultra-sensitive through to rock-hard. The proven and excellent XT series is responsible for best acceleration. The rear derailleur features the Shadow Plus technology where the cage plate hides behind the frame. In this way, it is well protected and its owner can fully enjoy the crisp and precise shifting processes for a long time!
A cross-country racer with the genes of an all-mountain bike – the new ROSE GROUND CONTROL 2 manages this balancing act. A RockShox Revelation Solo Air suspension fork offers high performance at the front. It stands out for excellent sensitivity and offers numerous adjustment possibilities. With the “Dual Position Air” technology, the travel can be reduced in no time to turn climbs into a child’s play. The RockShox Revelation Solo Air features the new RCT3 system and thus offers three different modes: OPEN (the full range of travel can be used), THRESHOLD (takes away the big bumps) and LOCKOUT (completely locked for fast rolling on smooth ground). A good suspension system also needs a good rear shock and so the ROSE GROUND CONTROL 2 comes with a RockShox MONARCH RT3. This rear shock guarantees a controlled and safe ride. A larger air chamber promises best traction and keeps your bike on track at any time. Moreover, the GROUND CONTROL 2 features an Easton EA70 handlebar. Thanks to its width of 720 mm, it offers good handling and optimal control. Its low rise provides a comfortably flat riding position, while the backsweep ensures an ergonomically good hand position – for sheer riding pleasure!
The ROSE XEON TEAM CGF-4400 offers highest comfort and great performance as far as the wheels will carry you! This snappy little marathon bike is our endurance specialist and the ideal companion for big tours. Equipped with SRAM’s top groupset Force 22, it wants to offer nothing but ultimate performance. Precise, fast gear changes even with high stress on the chain and a low total weight of below 200 grams are just two attributes of the Force 22. In this category, too, wide tyres, a vibration-reducing full-carbon fork and a flexing carbon seat post ensure comfort and best power transfer. For 2016, the XEON TEAM CGF was given an extensive update to make it even more user-friendly and powerful.
29-inch wheels, 130 mm of travel at the front and rear – those are the roots of the ROSE ROOT MILLER, the roots of a convincing touring bike. It rolls with superior ease, its high-end wheels are a great quality feature. “DT Swiss M 1900 Spline” is written on the rims. It’s a system wheel set for higher demands. Straight spokes provide an excellent balance between stability and weight. This is what the special SPLINE system hubs are designed for. A high-quality Race Face Evolve handlebar dominates the cockpit. With a width of 750 mm, it offers great handling and yet high stability. The rise is 0,5 degrees, which is flat enough for a race-like riding position and versatile enough to cover a wide range of use from Cross Country through to All Mountain.
27,5 instead of 26 inches – the new wheel size offers an excellent compromise for a versatile and uncomplicated bike. Our ROSE COUNT SOLO 1 impresses with superior handling and a high-performance frame made from durable aluminium that weighs no more than 1300 grams. Equipped with the proven DT Swiss X 1900 Spline wheel set, the COUNT SOLO 1 is a true all-rounder. The advantages of its 27,5” wheels are a smoother running and a better roll-over behaviour. A Spline hub and Straight Pull spokes provide high durability. As the name suggests, those spokes run straight and do not have an elbow that represents the most sensitive part of conventional wheels. The X 1900 Spline wheels feature robust thru axles on front and rear and also offer the possibility to use tubeless tyres. Reliable Shimano Deore brakes are a perfect complement. With 180 mm and 160 mm large brake discs, they are robust and uncomplicated and provide a safe deceleration.
