GRANITE CHIEF – fate strada al capo!
Here comes the adventure, here comes the GRANITE CHIEF 1! Equipped with 150 mm of travel, it offers enough reserves to also master rougher downhill sections and longer tours with ease. To push the bike’s performance into the right direction, we have paid attention to a good fork. The GRANITE CHIEF 1 thus comes with a Rock Shox Revelation RL with a 15 mm thru axle and 150 mm of travel. The Revelation offers a perfect balance between weight and torsional resistance, while being extremely sensitive, too. High-quality DT Swiss M 1900 Spline wheels are another quality feature of the GRANITE CHIEF 1. Straight spokes ensure a perfect ratio between stability and weight, special SPLINE system hubs are the perfect match.
The GRANITE CHIEF 2 is a classic trail bike with convincing downhill performance and best touring characteristics. In order to ensure best downhill fun, we have equipped the bike with a Rock Shox Pike RC fork with a 15 mm thru axle. This fork hardly knows any limits: It is brutally stiff, sensitive and yet pleasantly lightweight. At the rear stay, too, an absolutely top suspension element is used: the Rock Shox Monarch RT3. The air rear shock is perfectly adjustable – thanks to externally adjustable rebound and a 3-position compression (Open/Pedal/Lock). The latter allows for an individual adjustment to the prevailing terrain and individual preferences. Regarding the components, the bike also has a lot to offer: Even the basic model is equipped with a rear derailleur of highest quality – it is called Shimano XT, has already become a legend and stands for top performance, a low weight and long durability. “VERY GOOD” is the verdict of the “Bike” magazine (02/2015) that writes: “High-quality touring bike with complete features, agile character and wide range of use.” The Dutch magazine “up/down” writes in August 2014: “The frame, the geometry, the assembly and the look of brushed aluminium – a beautiful package at a good price.”
It is equipped with carefully selected high-end components, nimble and fast uphill, relaxed when riding downhill: our GRANITE CHIEF 3. Of course, the chief should have an appropriate suspension system, which is why the GRANITE CHIEF 3 comes with a Fox 34 Float FIT DPS suspension fork and a Fox Float DPS Factory Elite rear shock. The fork is specced with technical highlights, the uppers are coated with the exclusive Kashima coating to reduce friction. Moreover, the fork features the new Dual-Piston System (DPS) that comes with three compression modes: OPEN, MEDIUM and FIRM. With that, the suspenion can be individually adapted to personal preferences or to the prevailing terrain. The rear shock of the GRANITE CHIEF 3 , too, comes with DPS technology, Kashima coating, three compression modes and offers best performance for the rear stay.
It is the chief on the trail – our GRANIT CHIEF 3. Equipped with carefully selected high-end components, this bike is nimble and fast uphill and relaxed downhill. A chief should have appropriate suspension elements which is why the GRANITE CHIEF 3 features a Fox 34 Talas FIT DPS suspension fork and a Fox Float DPS rear shock. The fork impresses with lots of technical highlights and its upper fork tubes are coating with the exclusive Kashima coating to reduce friction. In addition, the fork features the DPS technology, just like the rear shock of the GRANITE CHIEF 3: the Fox Float DPS. It also comes with a Kashima coating and offers best performance for the rear stay.
