Our second model improves upon the design by reinforcing high contact areas allowing for all enduro, downhill, and cross country rides. It also improves reliability by using premium vinyl protective wraps that cover about 80% of the entire frame protecting from bumps and scratches. The frame continues to hold its strong, slim, and light carbon fiber frame.
It also continues to employ our instantaneous center or IC mechanism which is achieved by tracing intersection lines from two linkages. The pivot point is traveling forward/upward during suspension travel. The low pivot position actively works during heavy pedaling burly trails or uphill climbs and smartly pivot goes up on gnarly rock gardens. The most efficient pedaling and braking suspension platform is finally here. Warphen Bicycles’s goal is to make a durable, simple to maintain bicycle frames with a no-frills suspension design. The M160C utilizes two simple linkages with bearing uniquely counter-rotating which allows its utmost efficiency.
This is an obsession of a quest for the best mountain bike every person can possibly get.
