It’s the difference between the tentative first go of the year and the ripping third lap of a midsummer day. It’s the ease of knowing your suspension is dialed. It’s a boost of confidence, speed and control when a bit more of any could make a winning formula. Enduralin is the extra bit of fun that turns a good ride into a great one – the shouting of the crowd, a flow state of euphoria, cowbells, chainsaws, accelerated reaction time and enhanced perception. It’s the difference between a Good Time and All-Time.
CONCENTRIC BOOSTIncreasing rear axle spacing to 148mm over the 142mm standard moves the chainline outboard by 3mm, increasing the space available at the bottom bracket. This doesn’t sound like much but means that tire clearance can be increased without sacrificing drivetrain clearance or swingarm rigidity. All of it adds up to more durability, nimble handling and a bike that tracks better through rough terrain.
ASYMMETRY ERGONOMICSThe asymmetric/offset design offers unique advantages beyond stiffness and low weight. The shock is mounted in a position that offers incredibly easy access to damper controls, and without a frame support in the way, adjusting progressivity with volume spacers is easy to do right on the bike.
By offsetting the shock, the amount of vertical space required to fit the shock and frame support is reduced, leaving room for a tool kit and a 500ml bottle with easy left-side access. The top tube is lower for extremely low standover.
MONOCOQUE-OMROrbea Monocoque Race (OMR) frames blend high modulus fibers and high strength fibers exclusively. Prepreg carbon sheets are laser cut to minimize excess materials and overlap, and hours of pre-moulding ensure optimal compaction with the smallest amount of carbon. A full EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) mold helps eliminate wrinkles and voids.
LOWER STANDOVERThe 12mm offset of the shock allows the vertical distance taken up by the top tube, shock and frame reinforcement to be compressed. The top tube is lower for extremely low standover.
PURE ENDURO GEOMETRYSLACK HEAD ANGLE
LONG WHEELBASE STEEP SEAT ANGLE
LOW BOTTOM BRACKET SHORT CHAINSTAYS
Great stability at speed through rough terrain.
Optimum balance and weight distribution.
A simple rotation of the shock mount pin drops the BB 7mm and slackens angles by .5º
OFFSET PIVOT LINKRallon's concentric boost suspension, provides unique freedom to our engineers to finely design the kinematics so that pedalling efficiency, small bump sensibility, suspension progressivity and rear system stiffness to weight ratio can be independently optimized. A high main pivot point provides minimum pedalling energy losses at the same time the seat stays and linkage positioning ensure just the right progressivity for outstanding bumps absorption and ultimate grip and control. The suspension provides just the right progressivity (10%) so that can be used with any of the air or coil specifically tailor tuned Fox shox, ensuring every rider gets the maximum performance out of the box.
