With a combination of technical handling ability and an imptressive turn of speed, the Core 10 represents having your cake and eating it - both fast and light, yet capable of handling any trail.
For 2016 we've worked hard to cram in as many features as possible to make your trail rides the best they can be while keeping the pricing competitive. Dependable Shimano hydraulic stoppers help reign things in on steep, technical terrain and the plush coil-sprung Suntour XCM fork features a hydraulic lock-out for effcient climbing and paved surafce trail link-up.
We round out the changes for 2016 with our revised geometry, adopting a new-school progressive stance for improved stability on technical terrain, especially at speeds, and, when combined with the overall shorter stem length, quicker steering inputs. In plain English?! More fun!
At the heart of the Core lies our brand new hybrid double-butted alloy tubeset – a clever mix of two differing grade alloys to help give us high levels of stiffness in certain areas and compliance/flex in others. The higher density 6066 downtube and chainstays provides the basis for a stiff and efficient pedaling platform, whilst the 6061 toptube, seat tube and seatstays help give and added element of compliance and comfort, acting as a nice buffer between rider and trail.
Nice and wide Alex MD23 rims (28.4 mm OD/23mm ID) give a great high volume, tyre profile and have a tubeless ready bead hook – just add rim tape and sealant.
Sitting at a nice halfway house between the wagon-wheeled 29ers and the longstanding 26in wheel, the 27.5" wheel not only rolls better than its smaller 26in counterparts but is also both lighter and more maneuverable on technical terrain than a 29" wheel. Perfect middlegorund/best-of-both - Win-win in our book.
The revised toptube routed cables gives exposed cable sections better protection from the elements and contamination - meaning smoother shifting derailleurs and longer service intervals.
