A completely new design makes the Fanes 6.0 a real eyecatcher and the perfect companion for trail, tour and park!
The optimized and modern geometry of our enduro mountainbike provides up- and downhill performances that lets the fun flow through your veins. It handles so well that you will be able to cut through any terrain like a hot knife through butter! You will experience directional stability like you have never before. Overall we focused the development of this frame on form, function, longevity and easy maintainability - for a new mountain biking experience.
Specs for tech nerds:
The geometry is dialed to fit 650B (27.5") wheels and the Boost standard brings the necessary stability for any use scenario.
The seat angle is designed in a way that it will have exactly 75° with the seat post fully extended to make uphill performance better than ever before!
The cable routing was improved in many details to create a really clean look.
The decision not to have a front derailleur mount opened up completely new design and construction options and enabled us to improve the bearing of the rear end: It was possible, for example, to increase the bearing support and also use double row bearings on the main pivot. This increases stiffness of the entire frame construction, in a way you will feel!
Throughout the FANES frame we use larger bearing, making them able to withstand higher loads and increase longevity (e.g. main pivot bearing +100%).
We also only use LLUMAX bearings from ENDURO BEARINGS, which no longer have a ball cage but instead more balls, thus increasing the load capacity by 35%.
On the rocker arm and the seat stays the bearings are secured by a circlip to keep them in place even when high side loads occur and to increase serviceability.
Special bolts and covers on all pivot points protect the bearings from the elements.
And because we are convinced that our new bearing concept will hold up to practically anything, we even go one step further by making this promise:
Within the first year of your purchase we will send you a new bearing for any on that you break - no questions asked. We don't think that will be necessary though.
All counted you can only win: a bike that will put a smile on your face, which has a low wear frame concept and is a real looker on top of everything else.
Frame Kit Options
carbon rear end
Seat and chain stays are newly designed for a clean look. The carbon fiber rear hand has a fixes wheel base and the chain stay length is 432 mm.
We save 560 grams compared to the aluminum version of the frame.
Please note that the carbon fiber parts only come in the color matte black and cannot be painted any other way!
The FANES frame is fitted with the proven STS-Link rear end and provides 170 mm of travel. The wheel base can be adjusted to fit personal or track preferences. Short or long chain stays? It's your choice.
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“).
