We designed this frame for one purpose - to go down the mountain really fast. Doesn't matter if you are a racer, or ride just for fun - Lifeline is the right tool for the job. Starting with the geometry - long and slack, through the lightweight and stiff composite construction, and active, yet efficient suspension, Lifeline DH frame is a heart of a very fast bike. And as the terrain gets harder, lines get steeper, the limits of this bike are still very, very far away.
Composite front triangle (monocoque) and swingarm, made from carbon and vectran fibers gives us new design possibilities :
› allows reducing and optimizing weight
› every frame can be tailored for rider weight and riding style
› gorgeous look
Main design advantages :
› Shock is mounted directly to the suspension links
› No shock mounts in the front triangle or the swingarm
› The simplicity of design also gives better stress distribution in frame
› Ultra short linkages gives stiff and very light construction
FDS Suspension: Floating Damping System is patent pending bike suspension system.
We believe it to be the most advanced development among virtual pivot suspension project.
Suspension system characteristic :
› Active under braking
› Efficient pedalling
› No pedal feedback
› Low center of gravity
› Great small-bump sensitivity even with an air shock
( But all these theoretic are only words and can not describe how fast this suspension is! )
