The carbon frame of the new PIKES PEAK weighs a mere 2380 grams and is available for two different areas of use, depending on the setup: “The enduro model with 165 mm of travel comes with slacker angles and an increased bottom bracket height for smoother running and more ground clearance on speedy downhill rides. The trail version with a 150 mm fork on the contrary comes with a steeper seat and head tube angle for improved cornering and more propulsion. Depending on the setup, the PIKES PEAK has different riding characteristics,” explains Max Sistenich, developer at ROSE Bikes.
Another metamorphosis is offered by the brand-new PROGEO technology patented by ROSE Bikes and used for the first time on the PIKES PEAK. “PROGEO allows the rider to adapt the characteristics of the PIKES PEAK to the prevailing terrain with a flick of the wrist and on the fly, e.g. on the trail. The term is composed of the words progression and geometry. Progression describes the rear stay characteristics and the resulting bottom-out protection. By setting up the bike’s geometry, you can adjust head and seat tube angle, as well as the bottom bracket drop,” says Max about the new feature.
With the PIKES PEAK, the bicycle brand from Bocholt has also successfully set an example in respect of design. The modern geometry of the PIKES PEAK is charac-terized by an especially long top tube, yet a short stem of 30 to 40 mm harmon-iously compensates this length. Thanks to 430 mm short chain stays, the bike offers an agile ride despite its huge reach. The kinematics of both product lines – the all-mountain and the enduro version – is designed for a 1x drivetrain system and benefits from the new Boost standard: Thanks to a wider axle and the resulting wider bracing angle of the wheels, the rear stay is especially stable and stiff. Besides, ROSE intentionally did without a front derailleur to get more installation space for a wider bearing unit – another positive aspect for the rear stay’s stiffness.
"Even more possibilities, even more action – the PIKES PEAK offers the full range", concluded Rose Bikes.
