New CLASH: the big (r) evolution!
With its 27.5-inch wheels, its large travel, its geometry and its completely reworked kinematics, the CLASH becomes even more of a bike to do everything …
Bike Park, Enduro, cool or more edgy rides … it always answers present.
For 2021, it is changing significantly.
Its geometry is reviewed in depth. The uphill position is optimized thanks to an elongated top tube and a straighter saddle angle.
Downhill, its longer front end will provide stability when everything is picking up speed, while the short stem will keep the bike maneuverable and playful in slower portions.
If it is designed for all types of riders (from S to XL), its 27-inch wheels will inevitably make the CLASH a very serious option for small riders.
Thanks to its new kinematics, the CLASH is even more comfortable in the steepest freeride singles.
The icing on the cake, like its big brother the FURIOUS, it has a kinematic setting. This setting will allow you to focus on either sensitivity (Sensitive) or dynamism (Dynamic).
No need to make any concessions.
You will use Sensitive Mode for DH / Freeride use, when you need comfort and grip.
Dynamic mode will be ideal for smoother tracks, jump sessions with friends, when you are looking for nervousness and dynamism.
If the CLASH evolves unsightly, it’s a whole new frame that arrives: its behavior and its level of performance make a huge leap forward.
No wonder for a CLASH after all.
About the CLASH ESSENTIAL
This CLASH has it all. Its ‘Heritage Green’ is the favorite color of many of our riders such as Andreu LACONDEGUY, Kyle STRAIT and Brendan HOWEY.
The famous brands FOX and SHIMANO are at the controls of this CLASH ESSENTIAL. FOX takes care of the suspensions with its new Enduro fork, the 38 Performance Grip with 180mm of travel. As the name suggests, it is fitted with 38mm diameter plungers for added precision when the going gets tough. As for the shock absorber, it is the FOX Float DPX2 Performance which will ensure you a grip and a dynamism foolproof. Modern to your fingertips, this model also features the new SHIMANO SLX 12-speed transmission and SLX 4-piston 203mm brakes. Finally, DT SWISS E532 rims can take you anywhere thanks to their reliability.
