Description

For you, it’s not about full-tilt descents on rock-strewn open mountainsides.

It’s not about rollercoaster singletrack thrills, locking on and reeling in, berm after berm.

It’s not about lung-busting, blood-pumping, muscle-aching, sinew-straining climbs.

It’s about all of the above, and more. It’s about mountain biking, and we have the bike for you.

Totally new for 2012 is our range of full-suspension mountain bikes, starting with the Blitz 2. Armed up front with a 120mm travel RockShox fork whilst at the rear there is 100mm of smooth travel delivered via our Vitus V-Link four-bar suspension system and RockShox air shock.

Hydroformed Multi-Butted 6061 Aluminium Frame & RockShox Recon Forks
Our lightweight hydroformed multi-butted, heat treated 6061 aluminium frame features 100mm of rear wheel travel via a Four-Bar V-Link activated suspension platform which eliminates pedal-bob yet remains fully active at all times. Suspension travel is controlled by a RockShox RT air shock offering infinite adjustability and silky smooth performance. All pivots run on sealed cartridge bearings providing supple performance with low maintenance. A replaceable derailleur hanger comes as standard.

RockShox Recon Silver R forks offer 120mm of trail taming coil sprung travel. A tapered steerer and 20mm Maxle thru-axle means precise, positive tracking through rock gardens and rough sections of trail.

SRAM Groupset
The SRAM groupset combines X7 shifters and X5 derailleurs with a Truvativ Blaze triple chainset to provide slick gear changes and a wide gear ratio that will make short work of any gradient the trail can throw at you. Avid Elixir 1 hydraulic disc brakes with a 180mm rotor up front and 160mm rotor at the back provide powerful, controllable stopping power ensuring you stay in control at all times.  A tough wheelset with sealed cartridge bearing disc hubs with Mavic XM 319 disc rims will take all the punishment you can dish out. Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres will keep you rolling along with minimal fuss providing lightweight performance and confidence inspiring handling.  ?To complete the package we’ve added Truvativ Stylo finishing kit, lock-on grips and a lightweight but comfortable X-Lite saddle.
