Crossfire 428 – Design & Graphic
The shortest chainstay in Full XC MTB
Full suspension Crossfire model becomes not only more race ready but also somewhat of a trailblazer thanks to innovative solutions throughout.
The Crossfire’s rear triangle design benefits from Lee Cougan’s True Internal Cable Routing system that see cables pass from BB directly into chainstay, leaving them exposed for only 1cm. Internal cable routing finds its way into the frame and the cockpit.
Shorter is better
Crossfire model adopts the shortest chainstays available on the market. Measuring an amazingly short 428mm the Crossfire, with 100mm travel, is able to locate the rear wheel closer to the bottom bracket than nearly anything else in cross country mountain biking currently in terms of a full suspension ride.
The horst link was eliminated in favor of a solid semi triangle. To compensate for its removal and eliminate the negative side effect that derives from “bobbing” the new 2nd Gen 3D link as well as the form and construction of the rear triangle have been designed specifically to reduce to a minumum the movement of the top link and therefore less flex of the seat stay.
