Salsa Bucksaw – Rock Shox Bluto – Rocky Mountain Blizzard – Borealis Echo

Olipahan päivä… fatbike rintamalla! Uutuuksia oli tänään lupa odottaa, koska Sea Otter alkoi ja kestää sunnuntaihin asti.

Sea Otterissa on yleisesti julkaistu aina mukavasti uutuuksia, mutta nyt tärähti kovaa jo heti kättelyssä.

Aamulla tuntui että Rock Shox Bluto, ensimmäinen fat-bikeihin suunniteltu joustohaarukka vie päivän kotiin. Siltä se tuntuikin, tosin Rocky Mountainin Blizzard pääsi kyllä lähelle.

Bucksaw1_Introducing

6066-T6 Aluminum Front Triangle & Chainstays
Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066 Aluminum tubing; Formed and shaped for optimized and appropriate stiffness, strength, and weight

Carbon Seatstays
Increased stiffness and lighter frame weight than aluminum

Split Pivot™ Rear Suspension
Ground-up application of the Split Pivot suspension design to solve fatbike design challenges/opportunities

The concentric rear axle pivot in conjunction with precise wheel link, brake link, and control link placement, results in several performance gains:
• Exceptional bump compliance
• Maximum traction
• Incredible pedaling efficiency
• Predictable braking
• Elimination of unwanted suspension movement during acceleration and braking
100mm of Front Travel
Designed around the RockShox® Bluto™ fork at 100mm of travel
