To perfectly cater to the use of 27.5" wheels the frame geometry and the STS-Link rear end were redesigned and optimized also in regards to modern component fit. The frame is now read for PLUS sized tires with a max. width of 2,80" and features the new BOOST axle standard. This means the chain line is perfectly aligned and guarantees perfect shifting even when riding on wider tires. Thanks to the use of new and lighter CNC parts as well as the standard carbon fiber rocker arm we not only save weight, the frame is also a lot stiffer and the suspension is more sensitive.
Much work also went into improving the internal cable routing: the routing itself as well as the frame ports were reworked in terms of functionality and serviceability.

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“).
