Alpine 6 uses 170mm travel upfront and with the introduction of the
230mm metric shock, we have revised the suspension layout to increase the rear
travel to 165mm. We've also tuned the frame to be more progressive to retain a
bottomless feel and improve small bump smoothness, treading that fine line that
keeps wallow at bay and gives the Alpine 6 all the control it needs.
The geometry has also been under the microscope and refined to match the new
suspension performance, resulting in more agility, stability and confidence at
speed. Our ethos is evolution not revolution, but the sum of all the changes
offers huge gains in performance. The head angle is now half a degree slacker
than its predecessor, the BB is 5mm lower and we’ve added 6mm to the reach
(Size L). In addition we’ve added 11mm to the chainstay, which has helped
centralise a riders weight on the bike during both descending and climbing,
offering a more balanced feel.
We also reviewed our sizing dropping the XS but making the S we already
had smaller covering both sizes. We’ve also added in a XXL size and reduced the
XL seat tube length to a 19 inch.
We’ve worked on the smaller details as well, our cable routing has seen an
overhaul to be easier on the eye and keep those big loops to a minimum, we’ve
also used frame grommets which mean whether you run your brakes "British” or
"American/Euro” you can now do so without compromising your routing. All the
CNC parts on the frame, upper and lower shock mounts, dropouts and bearing
housings have all seen revisions.
So when you come upon one of those unholy beasts of a trail, this is the bike
to take it on at full-gas and tame it.
