UNCLE JIMBO / ENDURO
MTB / UNCLE JIMBO
ENDURO AS A FAMILY AFFAIR
It’s not without reason that enduro is booming, as this discipline perfectly represents the basic idea of mountain biking. Climbing the mountain with pleasure and comfort, shooting downhill – a downhill bike in disguise in a touring bike’s clothing. UNCLE JIMBO offers all of these characteristics and can do even more. Equipped with a forgiving travel of 165 mm at the rear, it even irons out extremely demanding trails; the rear stay sensitively scans any bump on the ground. 27,5” wheels offer a lot of grip and great roll-over characteristics – for even more potential. It’s a declaration of war against boredom on the trail – robust, reliable and with endurance. The favourite uncle impresses with a lot of love of detail and a huge range of uses – it’s nice to do something with such a member of the family!
UNCLE JIMBO – a relative made to order!
UNCLE JIMBO 1 – our perfect entry into the action-packed enduro segment. Thanks to a sophisticated four bar linkage design and carefully selected components, this bike offers you best performance right from the start! The rear stay with a travel of 165 mm is sensitive and potent. It is equipped with an excellent Rock Shox Monarch RT3 shock that benefits from a lot of clever features like an externally adjustable rebound and a 3-position compression (Open/Pedal/Lock). The latter allows for an individual adjustment to the terrain and to personal preferences. The fork, too, bears the high-quality Rock Shox label: it is a Yari RC Solo Air. This newly developed enduro fork not only offers a travel of 160 mm, but also great suspension performance including Motion Control damping, very good stiffness values and a weight of around 2000 grams. Rock 'n' Roll, baby!
The UNCLE JIMBO 2 is our all-rounder among the enduro bikes. 160 mm of travel at the front and 165 mm at the rear offer outstanding up- and downhill performance. All suspension elements come from the company Rock Shox. At the front, the excellent Rock Shox Pike RCT3 Solo-Air suspension fork makes demanding downhills less frightening. It’s a kind of reference in the enduro class. It comes with external rebound adjustment, low-speed as well as 3-position compression. At the rear, a Rock Shox Monarch Plus RC3 shock carries out its duties with an externally adjustable rebound. Also on board: 3-position compression. The height of the saddle is also adjustable and can be controlled from the handlebar thanks to a Rock Shox Reverb Stealth Vario seatpost with internally routed cables. Regarding the drivetrain, you can fully rely on Shimano’s top group XT. Rear derailleur, front derailleur, shifter and cassette all have the logo on them – for long-lasting riding pleasure at the highest level!
It climbs like a goat-antelope and explodes on the way to the valley – our UNCLE JIMBO 3 is the uncle enduro cyclists trust! Suspension fork and rear shock both come from Fox and belong to the best products available on the market. The Fox 36 Float RC2 FIT with kashima coating and a 15 mm thru axle offers 160 mm of travel and thus a lot of reserves to easily cope with roughest terrain. A Float X rear shock controls the rear stay with a travel of 165 mm. It also comes with the exclusive kashima coating - a high-quality coating that reduces friction. The UNCLE JIMBO 3 rolls on the exclusive E13 TRS+ wheels that offers a great combination of a low weight, high stability and a cool design. Stable SRAM Guide RSC disc brakes (with 200 mm/180 mm discs) are responsible for braking, whereas SRAM's exclusive X01 group is used for shifting.
