Disc Brakes [Bikes]
On the trail, the stopping power of disc brakes stands without rival. And whether they're hydraulic or mechanical, disc brakes provide increased modulation, power, and reliability through any condition or terrain. The design also works independent of the rim, so they come with the added benefit of performing with equal aplomb to get you home safely when your wheels are out of true. The combined result? You're able to ride with more confidence and control.
Ground Control Positioning
A comfortable and stable ride is assured with our unique Ground Control Positioning, which puts you in a more upright ride position and provides maximum comfort with minimal back and neck strain. This position also gives you the ability to put your foot down safely whenever you need to, without getting off the saddle, adding an extra level of confidence and stability.
Complete Comfort System
When it comes to taking the sting out of rough surfaces on your bike, front suspension isn t always the answer. The Complete Comfort System takes into consideration cushioning and pedaling efficiency relative to weight distribution as you ride-over the entire bike and more towards the rear, where you carry 70% of your weight, for this style of riding. The wider tires and wheels, coupled with a suspension seatpost, and wide Body Geometry saddle offers more cushioning and shock absorption, while a rigid fork offers a lightweight and efficient ride.
Body Geometry Contact Points
It s important to be efficient and comfortable as you re racking up the miles, whether you re exercising or commuting. Body Geometry saddles and grips help you at two key contact points-your hands and your backside. Ergonomically designed and scientifically tested, our saddles and grips optimize comfort and blood flow to sensitive areas, increasing your ride enjoyment and efficiency. Select models also feature Body Geometry pedals, which are designed with a varus angle to counteract the collapse of the foot and keep your knee properly aligned.
