The sixth version of our all-time favorite Enduro machine is also the start for the new frame design of our product range.
The new frames now come in an all new look with elaborately hydroformed tubes.
For the new Fanes not much has changed concerning functionality, anyhow everything got a bit revised for even better performance and durability.
Kinematics got optimized, a steeper seat angle to make uphills easier and bigger bearings, just to name some facts.
There is also no slot for a front derailleur anymore.
The STS link is established and can still be found on the new Fanes, as well as adjustable dropouts on the aluminum versions.
In the end the Fanes is a bike which feels comfortable on all kind of trails - the rougher the better - but is still a good companion to crest the uphills.
As usual it is possible to choose between serial models or to go for a custom build-up.
This is a set of conditions for operation of a bicycle that includes Conditions 1, 2, 3, and 4; extreme jumping; or downhill grades on rough trails at speeds in excess of 40 km/h (25 mph); or a combination thereof.
