Virtual High Pivot

Our frame takes all the advantages of high pivot point bikes without the disadvantage of a very high anti rise. Unlike typical HPP bikes, our VHP system conserves the geometry and offers enough traction under rear braking. Further, it provides massive support under pedaling without the downside of pedal kickback. The so-called Anti Squat is even fine-tuned trough out gears and travel. 

High Anti Squat

Bikes with High Pivot Points naturally offer excellent support under pedaling without the downside of pedal kickback when using an idler pulley to reroute the chain. But we went a bit further and optimized the Anti Squat throughout the gears and travel to achieve what we believe is perfection. Plenty of support when climbing but no Pedal Kickback when descending, that makes you faster!

Balanced Anti Rise

Anti Rise is usually the weak point of High Pivot Point bikes as too much Anti Rise results in a less active suspension and loss of travel and traction. That's why we paid lots of our attention to design a bike that does not change the geometry under rear braking and keeps the suspension active but also prevents the rider's mass from shifting forward. We call it VHP16 and it makes you faster.

Geometry:

Allowing a high level of customization is vital for a bike that fits you like a tailored suit. That´s why we don´t offer any standard sizes like medium or large. Instead, we offer a set of Reach and Seat Tube options that can be combined to fit your personal needs. Reach can be anything between 440 and 540mm in 20 mm steps. The seat tube can be 420, 450 or 480 and the headtube can be either 110 or 125 mm.
And last but not least, you can decide if you want to build a pure 29er or a Mullet. The switch will be done by exchanging the shock mount so you can change it anytime later on. That totals in 36 possible sizes if we don´t count the Mullet option, no wounder the Geometry table is full of information.

Here is an example:

  • Reach: 480 mm (third from left)
  • Seat Tube: 450 mm
  • Head Tube: 110 mm
  • Top Tube: 638 mm (third from left)
  • Front Center: 824 mm (third from left)
  • Wheel Base: 1249 mm (Front Center + Chain Stay)
