The frame is made of unique 6061 aluminum alloy tubes using double butting technology. The peculiarity of the suspension is that regression at the beginning of the travel, this is required for better “sticking” to the ground, progression after 15-20% of the travel. The rear triangle is designed to use 26’ and 27.5’ wheels. To change the wheel standard, you need to deploy the “flip-chip” located in the dropouts and near the bridge.
