New 2018 Geko MTB Bike from Scapin



Scapin (Italy) – "Do not expect it to lose contact with the ground - it's against its nature. Geko is the parent model of Scapin's 29" full-suspended family. It is a compact geometry MTB that will meet all the expectations of both cross country and Gran-Fondo/Cyclosportive specialists", stated Scapin.

A short, 435mm stay and a compact-sized top tube help to make the bike wheelbase shorter, improving smooth riding in the most technically challenging routes.

To increase Geko's stability, Scapin has optimised its centre of gravity thanks to 50mm BB offset combined with a 74° seat tube angle. Pedalling in a sitting position is made easier even on extremely steep slopes - keeping the front wheel firmly on the ground and avoiding loss of grip. By contrast, the 51mm fork is less verticalised (70°) to better deal with ground bumpiness downhill.

The suspension system works according to a progressive compression curve, which enhances vehicle rigidity in the absence of significant impact stress.

The frame design is clearly inspired by Oraklo, this is especially obvious in the top tube and down tube tilt angles. The wiring is fully integrated.
