BMW Adds New Mountainbike Design to ‘Lifestyle Collection’
BMW has introduced its new ‘All Mountain’ bike. The design is the result of a collaboration between BMW engineers and a German mountain bike specialist, and will be presented for the first time in the sports collection of the BMW 2013/2014 lifestyle catalogue.
As well as full-suspension, the bike has a hydro-formed and powder-coated aluminium frame. Its special design is the result of a production process that is otherwise only used in car manufacturing, says BMW.
With 30 gears and a lock-out fork, the Shimano XT derailleur will facilitate steep uphill cycling. The four-pivot rear with anti-bobbing technology has been designed to ensure sufficient power transmission, and on the downhill journey riders can rely on hydraulic disc brakes.
The bike’s 13.4 kg overall weight and Shimano XT technology make it suitable for most types of terrain. The core frame is painted in matt black, with bright green accents on the fi’zi:k saddle, Crank Brothers wheel set and rocker.
