End of the teasing of Production Privée on their booth at Roc 2014. But don’t worry, even if you watch here an evolution of the Shan hardtail, there are others big surprises to show you in the next hours / days.
But now, we concentrate on the Shan 27, 27 to recall that he’s now officially ready for 27.5 inches wheels !
A great design does not need to be changed – so the Shan stays a Shan even if some specs have evoluted.
Rear, the axle moves to a 142×12 standard but 132×10 is available as an option if you wheels are not ready for the large axle.
Geometry has been adjusted to welcome the 27.5 wheels and 160mm fork. Chainstays are a bit longer (428mm versus 420mm…) and the head angle is more open to 65.5° (versus 66°). As we talk about the front of the bike, we can do a stop on the now famous DVO Diamond enduro fork. It’s here with its green DVO paint and black stanchions. If it’s too much for your eyes, you can decrease the luminosity of your computer or smartphones ^^
There is a funny thing with DVO. While many brands offers custom decals to pimp their components to the design / colors of the bike, DVO creates a full U-turn: the frame / bike manufacturers adopt the trend and think their designs around the DVO green emblematic color !
But Production Privée does not go too far on the DVO custom. They would be able to offer to this shan a cockpit with the green DVO from the CG cockpit special edition. But no. They chose a black / white cockpit from their own production. We’ll talk about it later but the white lines inspirated from the car races are both nice and useful because it helps to center the handlebar perfectly. A prouf that a design could be useful !
This new Shan 27 will be available soon for 649€ with a headset kit included. This is the same price as the current Shan. If the DVO edition is too much for you, a main black / grey version is also in the pipe.
Note also that a Optional 26″ hanger will be available for 27,5 frames
