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' 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 Germany (welded directly at our headquarters in Ascheffel). 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. With the damper installation dimensions of 230x65mm, the rear flattens the landscape with 170mm of travel.
ATTENTION: the frame kit includes the frame with the adjustable dropouts (including derailleur hanger and brake mount). REAR SHOCK AND THRU AXLE ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE SCOPE OF DELIVERY!
frame geometry is same as at eFanes: https://alutech-cycles.com/mediafiles/Sonstiges/Rahmen/eFanes%2060/eFanes60-GeoChart.pdf
