As the third model after the eFanes and the Fanes 29, our enduro classic is now being launched as the Fanes 6.1 as a 'Made in Germany / Made in Europe' frame.
What has remained is the proven and extremely sensitive STS rear triangle, as well as the very elegant design language of the hydroformed frame with its almost organic-looking lines.
What is new compared to the predecessor Fanes 6.0 is the production of the frame in Europe, the rear end is Made in Germany.
We have also made a very slight fine-tuning of the geometry: the new frames are each one centimeter longer, the steering angle is one degree flatter. With this adaptation you have a little more space to play on the bike, combined with even more smoothness and safety.
The Fanes 6.1 frame is designed for 27.5" wheels and a 170mm fork, a Mullet setup with a 29inch front wheel combined with a 160mm fork is also possible. With the damper installation dimensions of 230x65mm, the rear flattens the landscape with 170mm of travel.
ATTENTION: the frame kit includes the mainframe with rear end and the adjustable dropouts (including derailleur hanger and brake mount), TwinWorks thru axle, TwinWorks 34.9mm CNC seat clamp and TwinWorks chainstay protector type Silence. The frame is pre-assembled with rocker and the frame bearings (without headset), if you send us a rear brake hose, this can also be included in the pre-assembly of the frame. If needed, a shifting hose and a hose for a dropper post can also be pre-assembled, please leave us a note at the end of the order process if you want this option. THE DAMPER IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE BASIC LIFE SCOPE, but can choose it as option.
