Everything that a trail and tour biker loves has been combined in one bike: an attractive carbon front frame forms the basis for a superb chassis with 130mm range of spring at the front and 120mm at the back. The Rock Shox spring elements Pike Select + at the front and Deluxe Select + at the back are sensitive in their responsiveness, but at the same time have enough counterpressure for when the going gets tough. SRAM supplies the Eagle drive which, with its wide-banded 10-50 tooth cassette, has the right gear in store for every situation, high and low. Because the SKEEN TRAIL also wants to be impressive uphill, we have mounted light, drive-packed DT Swiss M1700 wheels, which also provide lots of strength and rigidity for demanding trails. The SDG Tellis Vario strut, which can be lowered from the handlebars, is helpful here and allows you lots of freedom of movement on steep descents. Grippy, smoothly rolling Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires complete the trail bike package.
