All’Euro Bike we went to look around on the stand SRAM to discover the most interesting news for the 2012. A lot of irons in the fire: new ratios 2×10 across the range, Ie X0, cartridge Motion Control DNA for some forks Rock Shox, Revelation 29″ and telescopic seatpost Reverb Stealth. We begin with a video for a general revision.
For 2012SRAM offers new ratios 38/24 and 36/22 for the line 2×10. In particular, the 36/22 is the ratios 2×10 more “light” market (we intend to light the fact that you let ride with less effort). Lacked such a solution on the market for at least two reasons: primarily because there are still riders who resist “temptation” of 2×10 for fear of finding too much on a bike to push difficle, then because with the increasing spread of the standard 29″, a bike actually a little’ more difficult to push, at least during the initial launch, a report 2×10 softer than it was just what we wanted. In 2012 SRAM also broadens the line 2×10 until’X5, becomes a group that made the proposal on the market with the best quality / price for deciding to move to 10 speed.
For the whole line 2×10 SRAM launches for next season's newest X Guide, tensioner with a bash to double specificamnte designed to transmit 2×10 and implemented in collaboration with MRP.
Also new for the 2012 of SRAM is the’Ie X0, that we also made some time ago qualcche (see that). Box 10 speed ratios by dh, Carbon cranks available 170 and 165mm and weighing just 750g including bottom bracket, hand lever and the rear derailleur 10 speed and chain guide X0 again in collaboration with MRP. In the video Simon Cittati (Sram Europe) almost grazed the median forecast HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to keep an eye on the rider with Ie X0 the world Champéry (The video was shot two days before the race). Well, a few days after Danny Hart left open-mouthed gravity of the world, winning the world title on a bike with its own transmission Ie X0, not bad as a forecast Simon!
L’Ie X0 in all its glory.
Also new for the 2012 is the new cartridge Motion Control DNA, evolution of the traditional Motion Control. A spring with a double helix design now allows more precise control of settings and refined. The system Dual flow Rebound improves braking in extension of the suspension. The Motion Control DNA will initially be mounted only on Sid and Revelation, namely models XX, RCT3, RPT and RL. Particularly interesting is the new Revelation RCT3 of 29″. In this version the Motion Control DNA makes it possible to set three different braking on the fly compression: fully open for the descent, intermediate position to absorb the bumps and be assisted by the suspension under pedaling and fully closed to lock the fork in the fund transfers with very smooth. The Revelation 29″ RCT3 There is also a low-speed compression adjustment.
Revelation XX 29″. Now the standard 29″ is becoming a must when it comes trailriding and all-mountain.
