BMC identifies some keys to match the benefits of a 29er to an enduro mountainbike. Basically, BMC uses short stays (435mn) combined with a large cockpit / short stem to improve the handling. 29er wheelset associated with an open head angle (67°) offers more speed and more confidence to the rider.

Rear suspension is driven by a BMC in-house concept called APS (Advanced Pivot System) that is basically an anti-squat system based on the tension of the chain and combined to a specific location of the pivots. It results a system that uses the weight and position of the rider to work properly.

    joli vélo mais le 29 est pas le bon choix d’après moi

      salut Cyril.. quelles sont les limites que tu vois aux 29 ?

      • Cyril says:

        salut Quentin. je trouve que c’est pas très vif dans les passages techniques et les suites de virages, moins maniables quoi. après c’est clair qu’il y a un meilleur rendement. je pense que le 27,5 doit vraiment être un bon compromis (mais j’en ai pas testé)
