LE BICI PER LUNGHE ESCURSIONI ED AVVENTURE
Le montagne sono sempre state una grande attrazione per gli avventurieri ed esploratori. Paesaggi, panorami, sentieri con un fascino unico, ed in sella alla giusta bicicletta diventano ancora più affascinanti. Le nostre bici da Tour sono la perfetta miscelazione tra sportività e comodità – progettate per tutti gli amanti di lunghe escursioni in sella, per tutti i divoratori di chilometri, per tutti quelli che amano le avventure in bicicletta.
Le bici in questa categoria hanno geometrie particolarmente adatte ad una buona performance nelle fasi pedalate, ma non solo, si trovano a loro agio anche su discese abbastanza tecniche. Confort e prestazioni sono le parole chiave per le nostre bici da touring – nel nostro catalogo trovi due differenti modelli, per due differenti tipologie di rider e terreni affrontati – la GROUND CONTROL e la THE TUSKER.
GROUND CONTROL: classica e moderna allo stesso tempo, bi-ammortizzata con un escursione alle ruote pari a 130 mm, disponibile anche in taglia in XS (con escursione alla ruota posteriore di 115 mm), corre su ruote da 27,5 pollici, il buon compromesso tra una bici da marathon ed una da all-mountian/trail. THE TUSKER si muove invece su ruote da ben 4 pollici, specializzata per i terreni più difficili come neve, sabbia, sassi smossi, ghiaia e molto altro. Anche se non dotata di una sospensione posteriore, grazie all’elevato volume e superficie di contatto delle ruote fat, può regalare grande divertimento in moltissime situazioni.
Le bici da Tour sono per chi è alle ricerca di una bici dal carattere sportivo, quindi dalla elevate prestazioni anche in salita, ma non vuole rinunciare ad un po’ di comodità e sicurezza nelle lunghe discese off-road. L’anello mancante tra le bici da cross country e le più votate alla discesa bici da Trail. Bici versatili che ti permettono di affrontare una gara marathon ma anche discese impegnative in tutta tranquillità.
Conquer the mountain – with the GROUND CONTROL 1! The bike's sophisticated geometry makes it perfectly suitable for all kinds of off-road adventures. To ensure that the suspension system can show its strengths, the GROUND CONTROL 1 is completely equipped with Rock Shox components. At the front, a Rock Shox Revelation RL Solo Air ensures a smooth ride. It comes with a 15 mm thru axle and 130 mm of travel. The Revelation shows a perfect compromise between weight and torsional stiffness, while offering great sensitivity. As it features the Motion Control DNA system, it offers soft damping and perfectly reacts to several compressions in quick succession. In addition, the bike comes with a Rock Shox Monarch RT3 rear shock. It controls 130 mm of travel at the rear stay, while reacting extremely sensitively and measures the ground like a seismograph. The Monarch RT3 comes with a larger air chamber for even more control and traction so that the bike won't even lose ground in sharp corners on on rough terrain.
A little all-mountain bike with the look of a cross country racer – the GROUND CONTROL 2 is a perfect example for versatility. The precise SRAM GX groupset consisting of a crankset, shifter, front derailleur and rear derailleur ensures perfect and powerful acceleration. It combines light, crisp shifting processes with a low weight and top-notch workmanship – and does also look damn good. As regards tyres, this bike relies on a modern classic: The Schwalbe Nobby Nic Evo Snakeskin tyres offer low rolling resistance, a lot of grip and are extremely resistant to punctures thanks to a reinforced sidewall. For increased riding dynamics, the GROUND CONTROL 2 comes with a Rock Shox Reverb Stealth. This Vario seatpost can be controlled from the handlebar; the hydraulic cable is routed through the frame to protect it from dirt, damages and envious glances. It offers an adjustment range of 150 mm so that the seatpost can be dropped so far that nothing is standing in the way of technically demanding situations.
Our leader of adventurers, equipped with best components and convincing performance - this is the GROUND CONTROL 3. The top model offers high-tech equipment as far as the eye can see. The drivetrain is reliable and offers the highest technological standard. It comes from the brand Shimano: Rear derailleur, front derailleur, shifter, cassette and crankset all bear the XT label. Thanks to the Shadow technology, the XT rear derailleur is extremely slim, which significantly reduces the risk of contact to rocks, roots or similar. A pair of excellent wheels - DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One – tops off the package. The high-quality system wheelset features the Straight Pull system that stands out for an even load distribution along the spokes. On conventional models with a spoke elbow, the bent part of the spoke is subject to heavy loads which may result in spoke breakage or a total failure of the wheel. However, on the DT Swiss wheel, this risk is further reduced by a locking system that is injected into the nipple thread for increased stiffness and durability of the wheel.
Fatbikes are no show bikes, but true mountain bikes. Thanks to their fat tyres, these bikes offer outstanding comfort and grip even though they come without suspension. The parts of extremely high quality used for the THE TUSKER 1 are the basis for endless riding pleasure. At first, they were smiled at as being special bikes, now even established manufacturers like Schwalbe put a lot of work into the development of new products in order to serve a whole new market. The Schwalbe Jumbo Jim Evo Snakeskin 26 x 4,0 tyres were especially developed for this kind of bike. They belong to the Evolution Line, are equipped with SnakeSkin casing to protect from sharp-edged stones and are made from Pace Star rubber compound, weighing less than 1000 grams – an impressive value taking into consideration the bike's dimensions! The bike comes with a modern shifting system, SRAM's high-quality GX drivetrain offers 1 x 11 gears – all this at an affordable price! There is nothing you will miss: X-Snyc chainrings are part of the bike, just as the proven X-Horizon rear derailleur.
African bull elephants are also called tuskers – and that’s exactly what our THE TUSKER 2 looks like with its high-quality AL-7005 aluminium frame. Not a bike only for specialists, but a full-fledged and versatile mountain bike! Especially for this extraordinary mountain bike, ROSE has developed the “THE TUSKER” carbon fork, mega fat and mega stiff. 4-inch wide tyres of the Schwalbe company turn through it, the Jumbo Jim Evo Snakeskin 26 x 4,0 is a tyre specially designed for fatbikes, offering massive grip and great comfort. It belongs to the Evolution Line, is equipped with SnakeSkin casing to protect from sharp-edged stones and made from fast Pace-Star compound. The folding tyre not even weighs 1000 grams! THE TUSKER 2 offers 11 gears, packed into SRAM’s top groupset X01. Precise shifting and minimised chain bounce belong to the standard; in addition: the groupset offers a low weight and great looks! Let the elephant race begin!
