MDE Bikes revealed their New Damper 29 Enduro Bike

MDE Bikes (Italy) – “We were not sure a 29-inch Enduro bike could be performing in any condition as 27.5-inch wheels bike. Our Damper 650B is a very effective bike with very high performance in all situations and it is the result of years of continuous improvements and refinements. In order to achieve this with the 29-inch wheels, we have had to do many tests to develop a geometry that could improve the performance of our formidable Damper 650b”, shared MDE Bikes.

“We compensated the natural dynamic slowness of the big wheels by acting on two sides: first we made an extremely vertical (76.2 °) seat angle. This pushes to load even more the weight on the front wheel; this allows for maximum steering precision to reach precisions levels very high for a 29-wheeled bike with a so closed angle (65.5 °). This also fits perfectly with the height of the handlebars from the ground, so also if the position of the centre of gravity being very advanced, it does not feel like being too much out on the front wheel and uphill results in a very precise bike that hardly lightens the front wheel on the steep situation”, explained the company.

“On the other hand, we have optimized the behavior of the rear suspension to make it even more responsive and sustained in the center of the compression curve. This makes the ride even more active and allows to balance the back reactions to the granitic behavior of the front wheel”, they added.

“The result of all this is a surface-to-air missile with such high usage limits that it is very difficult to reach. A ball buster on the fast paths but at the same time easy to handle in the narrow curves. It is an absolute weapon for experienced racers but at the same time a high performance machine that will allow you to make a further step to improving your riding level”, concluded MDE Bikes about their new enduro Damper 29er.

What is new:
