KTM (Austria) – “Unleash Your Inner Explorer with the new KTM PROWLER SONIC 2018”.
According to KTM, “The Prowler is a true adventurer and classified as an adventure fully. It was built for ambitious bikers who love the experience and climb up the most beautiful peaks in the world as well as sleeping in their bivouac”.
The Prowler uses the established straight-line link (SLL) KTM damping technology. This was specially developed for the 150mm travel in combination with the Horstlink.
The outstanding benefits of 29" wheels in terms of rolling speed are fully utilized by the frame construction, which is designed exclusively for 29" wheels. Due to the low cockpit combined with the steep seat angle, KTM’s Prowler is an extremely good climber.
The strong downhill-genes of the Prowler result from a slack head angle combined with a short chainstay. The uncompromising design of the frame for 1x drivechains allows the bottom bracket, chainstay and main pivot to be as strong and stiff as possible.
More details about the new bike will be revealed at the Eurobike in Friedrichshafen.
