Freeride – freedom in the mountains!
FREERIDERS – EXPERTS FOR BIKE PARKS AND OFF-ROAD DOWNHILL
Freeriders are extreme and extremely exciting. They are made for heroic deeds and extreme situations; for tricks and moves that require skills and courage. Their job is clear: They must function perfectly downhill and in the air and they need to withstand quite a lot. Their area of use is clear as well: They are thrown down massive drops, are masters of the bike park and stunt bikes for stunts actions. In the past years, the limits of freeriding have been pushed further and further – what seemed impossible to ride some time ago, has now become reality. Riding skills improve and thus the material has to grow and get better all the time, too. And that’s why our freeriders are true experts, built specifically for their task: stable, reliable, with long travels and enormous shock absorption. High-quality components are indispensable for riding fun and safety. The focus is not on a low weight, but on durability and functionality.
Our SOUL FIRE rolls on 27,5“ wheels – the golden mean if you are looking for the ideal combination of good roll-over characteristics, stability and agility. Its highly effective suspension sets no limits; you can choose between 180 and 190 mm of travel. The resulting change of geometry allows you to adapt your bike to your riding style or to the prevailing terrain conditions. Even though riding fun is the most important thing, we have taken safety very seriously – because only a bike you can absolutely rely upon is a good bike.
Hey ho, let’s go! Make way for the ROSE SOUL FIRE 1, the entry into ROSE’s freeride world. Despite its low entry-level price, this bike comes with a pair of system wheels, and really good ones! They belong to the SPLINE product family of the Swiss high-end manufacturer DT Swiss. DT Swiss E 1900 Spline is their full name and they come with top features like new, lightweight Straight Pull hubs, straight spokes as well as stable, 22 mm wide rims. A robust and not too heavy partner for all your freeride tours. At the handlebar you can find another gem – a pair of ergonomic Ergon GE1 grips. They are developed to meet the special requirements of downhill-oriented bikes and perfectly adapted to the intended use thanks to the combination with a wide riser bar. Their ergonomic design ensures best control and reduces common problems like hand and arm tensions to a minimum.
Enjoy speeding through the ROSE freeride world with the SOUL FIRE 1. Designed for high stability and quality, the fork bears a label of the excellent suspension specialist Rock Shox – it's a Yari Solo Air fork. This great enduro fork not only offers a travel of 180 mm, but also a convincing suspension performance including Motion Control damping and very good stiffness values. And it only weighs a meagre 2000 grams! The drivetrain, too, comes with clever components, The SRAM GX is a high-quality 11-speed shifting system that is of the same standard as its big brothers X01 and XX1. For all those who always wanted to ride with 11 gears and a top performance, the SOUL FIRE 1 will be a great partner for the bike park and freeride tours. The bike's cockpit comes from the company Spank. It looks good and is designed for best grip - what more could you want?
Our SOUL FIRE 2 embodies the concept of a freerider that is suitable for touring in an unparalleled way. It only weighs 15,1 kilograms and is specced with many well-developed and durable parts. The freerider is light enough to do tours and shows an outstanding performance on your way to the valley. The performance of the Rock Shox Vivid Air rear shock is outstanding, too: It combines the weight and variability of an air shock with the response and characteristics of a steel coil shock. It is thanks to this rear shock that the rear wheel even sticks to the ground in extreme situations, perfect control included. It is the new standard in the downhill category, absolutely convincing with regards to performance and quality. The Rock Shox Lyrik RC Solo Air at the front is its equal in every way. The suspension fork has already become a legend, as it offers steel coil performance with all advantages of an air shock. This team is unstoppable on their way downhill!
Our top freerider and the measure of all things: The SOUL FIRE 3! A convincing frame concept and fine components – this bike leaves nothing to be desired. And so we have equipped this freeride monster with one of the best forks currently available on the market: the Fox 36 Float RC2 FIT. Refined with a gold kashima coating, it not only shines beautifully, but is also offers a significantly lower breakaway torque which results in a more sensitive suspension. Despite the low weight of only slightly above 2000 grams, the fork is torsionally very stiff, it offers numerous adjustment options and convincing suspension performance. The SRAM X01 group consisting of shifter, rear derailleur and cogset ensures an elegant appearance and precise shifting processes. The drivetrain is topped off with an E13 TRS+ crankset. The crank arms with a single chainring made from CNC milled aluminium are even very successful in downhill racing and easily withstand muscular calves and demanding world cup tracks.
