Propain Tyee – A success story

When the Propain Tyee was first introduced, it immediatly caught the attention of the enduro community and established itself in the race scene. Its instant success was based on the very stiff and durable frame in combination with a "feel good" geometry and well thought out configuration options. The novel PRO10 suspension system featuring great sensitivity and pedal efficiency ticks all the boxes on the suspension side. This results in the superiour balace between uphill and downhill performance that all Tyee and Tyee FLO (for ladies only) models have in commen. The latter were developed for the specific requirements of female riders. In addition the Propain Tyee is approved for bikepark usage without any limitations.

"How to make this great performing bike even better?"

For model year 2016 Robert Krauss, chief engineer at Propain, had to face a tough challenge: "How to make this great performing bike even better?" With an all new rear triangle, an optimized geometry and various small changes he managed to master the challenge: "The feedback from our team riders and customers were very helpful to improve this bike's performance. The new model is now designed for 650B wheels only which makes it more efficient on the uphills without any compromises on the downhills. The weight of the frame has been reduced by almost 150g as well.

Tyee 2016 - Configurations

The Tyee also delivers when it comes to configuration options. There are four pre-configurations offered and for all customizing fans Propain offers the “Free” option which allows to build a dream bike from scratch: the frame color, decal color, suspension, brakes and drivetrain can be chosen from various options. This gives the customer the choice to decide which components shall be "high-end" and which ones shall be "bullet proof".

Besides the ‘stealth black’ color option there are three new regular color options for the Tyee 2016: sporty glossy white, bright neon orange and classic royal blue. For all those that like it raw, the Tyee is also available in pure raw aluminum. In combination with six available decal colors there are in total 30 color combinations possible. And there are even more options to customise the Tyee: with the ‘Custom Color’ option a completely individual frame color can be chosen.
