Description

  • Ideal for touring, excursions and competition
  • Hardtail frame allying comfort and performance
  • The front triangle is ‘monobloc’ construction for greater strength and lightness
  • A frame reinforcing ‘gusset’ is integrated into the down tube under the head tube. This ‘gusset’ also allows for better compatibility with new suspension fork designs
  • The frame rear triangle is connected to the front main triangle using 3T Technology (‘Tube To Tube’). This technology allows a very simple yet effective connection
  • DCSC concept stays: The upper and lower sections of the stays are flattened, which provide improved flexibility in the vertical plane for greater comfort (vertical compliance) and increased stiffness in the lateral plane for better pedaling transmission
  • High Modulus carbon enables the construction of bikes with low weight with simultaneous high stiffness, which is sufficient to give the bike an excellent performance without comfort loss
  • The 986’s geometry was designed based on the most up to date 80mm to 100mm suspension fork designs
  • The 71.2° head tube angle offers a perfect steering response/stability compromise
  • The seat tube angle is 72.2°, as the frame was designed specifically for the E-Post ‘Reverse 5’
  • The diagonal tube is reinforced with metallic nanoparticles that increase the resistance to impacts by more than 60% without added weigh
  • Integrated seat post 'E-Post' with elastomer damping
  • Reversible E-Post seat post allows for +/-5mm positioning from the seat tube centre line
  • The 986 E-Post is equipped with the new A-Stem stem
  • A-Stem is adjustable in length and reversible. Its diameter is clearly defined to optimise steering accuracy
  • Short and conical head tube, 1.5” below and 1 1/8” above
  • The Direct Drive concept was integrated in this frame too and corresponds to the optimization of all steering parameters in the aim of bringing high rigidity, reliability and safety to reach a maximum performance level
