The FRS is a sleek bike with timeless lines.
It can shake up times on the clock thanks to its energy and it's guaranteed to put a smile on the face
of riders who love steep freeride lines, letting loose and just having big fun.
Designing a simple and efficient bike is not actually that simple.
The FRS is a melting pot of technology which draws on our experience
from the design and engineering of its predecessors.
To achieve this result, we worked at length on the kinematics,
geometry and the construction of the frame itself.
Reliability also remains one of our major interests.
On the construction side, the FRS is made with a series of triple butted aluminium tubes (AL 6066),
the shapes of which have been worked to improve their mechanical characteristics.
The weight of the frame is improved, and the longitudinal and transverse flex is more controlled.
For the kinematics, two 'anchor' positions are available for the rocker and they are easily changeable.
Two major benefits of this system are;
1) Being able to use a spring or air shock independently without having to make compromises.
2) The choice between a function that favours grip (sensitive) or that focuses more on energy (responsive).
In other words, riding a bit more of a DH bike (sensitive) or more bike park/jumps (responsive).
The two kinematic curves are already more linear than those of its predecessor,
for better contact with the ground (tyre/ground contact is more accurate/pronounced)
and more comfort through the travel.
