Orange downhill Mountain bikes
The 322 packed World Cup performance into a successful package and ended up being selected because of the Orange Dirt World group as their downhill tool of choice.
Utilizing our experience with the 22X/32X group of downhill bicycles, the 324 may be the processed consequence of prototype feedback we’ve received from the staff and numerous the frame’s features redesigned. Especially using the chassis into 27.5 inch wheel size.
We’ve retained the through-the-downtube shock mount. This really is an attribute that provides us the scope to put the single-pivot exactly where it needs to maintain regards to the drive-train to attain the types of tiny bump overall performance and plush believe that many people would anticipate from much more complicated linkage and multi-pivot designs. Additionally this means the frame’s 'shock bend' is a smooth ramp. This feature allows for easy surprise setup, something that should really be quick it is often hampered by variable paths. With all the 324 the suspension system tuning is completed because of the suspension device, keeping this easy is ideal for privateers whom may not have a race support vehicle with a full-time surprise professional for every single track.
The 324 utilizes the split-rear triangle swingarm idea that individuals in addition make use of in the Alpine 160. This lowers fat and increases rigidity on frames with long back travel.
Also we’ve included stability because of the a wider 83mm base bracket and 150mm backside wheel spacing, minimised tortional twist which helps keep the driver to their line.
One of many major features of creating when it comes to 27.5 inch wheel size is the base bracket is currently lower than the axle road at rest. This head start provides bike an infinitely more dug in feel when pressing through turns while also keeping the centre of gravity reasonable for high speed straight-line security.
Therefore wait that’s lots of work plus steel right? What’s the extra weight penalty. Well you may be astonished to hear that size for size the 324 framework arises around 200g lighter as compared to 322.
It’s dedication maintaining things quick, but we think using the 324 we’ve built a downhill cycle that do in the greatest level, over and over and once again because of the minimal amount of maintenance therefore the optimum period of time in the track.
