New CLASH: The big (r)evolution!
With its 27.5-inch wheels, long travel and completely revised geometry and kinematics, the CLASH cements its place as a do-everything bike.
Bike park, enduro, chilled or more technical rides... It always steps up no matter what!
For 2021, the CLASH changes significantly.
The geometry has been reviewed in depth. Uphill riding position is enhanced thanks to an elongated top tube and a straighter seat tube angle.
Downhill, the longer reach will bring stability when things speed up, whilst the short stem will ensure a manoeuvrable and playful bike through slower sections.
Even if it's definitely intended for riders of all shapes and sizes (from S to XL), with 27-inch wheels the CLASH is a particularly strong option for smaller people.
Thanks to its new kinematics, the CLASH feels even more at home on the steepest freeride slopes.
The icing on the cake, like its big brother the FURIOUS, the CLASH features a kinematic adjustment. This setting gives priority to either sensitivity (Sensitive) or dynamism (Dynamic).
No need to make many concessions.
The Sensitive mode is intended for DH/Freeride days when you need that comfort and grip.
Dynamic mode is ideal for smoother tracks or jump sessions with friends for example, when you're looking for energy and flow.
Though the CLASH doesn't change aesthetically, we've delivered a whole new frame; its behaviour and level of performance takes a huge step forward.
Not surprising for a CLASH after all!
About the CLASH ORIGIN
The 'Graphite Blue' paint and skinwall tyres make this CLASH a timeless yet original bike!
In terms of components, we have focused on reliability and ease of use. The suspension comes from the famous manufacturer RockShox with a Yari RC 180mm travel fork, rigid and precise thanks to its 35mm tubes. For the rear shock we have a Deluxe Select + with settings that are as simple as they are effective. The quality of the Shimano Deore transmission lives up to expectations and is again, easy to maintain. The 10 speeds can be fully exploited thanks to a large 11-46t cassette. For powerful braking over longer periods of time, the SRAM Guide T are fitted with 200mm discs.
