Lightweight lengths of top-quality chrome-molybdenum steel tubes of varied thicknesses make up the frame. This balanced frame design has a high torsional rigidity for better handling and rideability. At the same time, a more specifically tuned longitudinal flexibility can absorb the wheel impact energy and support the suspension for less rider fatigue.


Forged triple clamps with a 24 mm offset (adjustable to 22 mm) provide a solid grip on the forks, allowing accurate handling. For optimal rider ergonomics, they enable forwarding and backward adjustment of the handlebars in four different positions.
