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.

The following colors are not part of the RAL color standard and are also offerd as an option for powder coating.
Glazing a frame consists of a thin powder coating which, after curing, is coverd with a second layer of transparent paint which is then cured once more at a lower temperature. Please not that this type of color can only be applied to brushed allumnium frame. Otherwise the semi-transparent effect would not work.
The following has been taken from the WikiPedia page RAL-Farbe and translated to english:
The colors shown here will be displayed differently on different monitors and are not binding. A possibility to aproximatly calibrate your monitor on a purly visual basis is the test picture on the left: If on one or more areas a letter („R“ for red, „G“ for green or „B“ for blue) becomes clearly visible, you can adjust the corresponding color gamut on your monitor. The picture is calibrated to a color gamut of 2.2 - the common value fo IBM-compatible computers. Apple-Macintosh computers use a value of 1.8 up to version 10.5 („Leopard“) and also a value of 2.2 from version 10.6 („Snow Leopard“).
