Open Cycles is well known for all the riders that are fans of weightweenies. Light bikes always wow – look at this amazing build based on Ax carbon components. Weight is amazing for a mountain bike: 6,4 kgs.
Open announced few weeks ago a new challenge with the conception of a full suspension (light) frame. The brand shared the front triangle and we find on an interesting blog the masterplan of the frame. There are no virtual pivot point (well known to contain weight) but a suspension management that recalls a lot what Liteville does with its famous 301.
The frame was announced for the last Eurobike. NExt Roc D’Azur in France could be a hot spot to see a prototype.. more coming soon.
