Hydraulic Disc Brakes

 

What? Powerful disc brakes

Why? Braking with a disc offers more consistent, predictable braking in any conditions, whilst also reducing wear on the wheel rim, allowing you to stop with confidence.

Choice of Wheel Size

 

What? 27.5” or 29” wheel options

Why? 27.5” wheels are more nimble and accelerate faster, giving greater technical ability, whilst 29” wheels roll faster and smooth out bumps in the trail.

allez lightweight

Suspension Fork

 

What? 100mm (4 inch) travel

Why?Keeping your front wheel on the ground for better traction and grip allows you to handle better, and puts less pressure on your wrists for a more comfortable ride.
