Following up on the previous set of articles I did on trail riding and the amazing trail network in Jonkershoek, I teamed up with PYGA industries for a shoot on the 'Never-ending story' trial. Owners Patrick Morewood and Mark Hopkins, co-founder of Leatt and owner of CSIXX were joined by Jonkershoek local, Hanco Binneman to test out and show of their ONETEN29 trail weapon. As the name suggests the bike features 29inch wheels and a 110mm suspension setup. Read further for more technical details.
"The Oneten is designed to inspire confidence in any rider with its relaxed feel and ease of acceleration and therefor climbing ability. It is our flagship 29er trail bike, at home in an XC stage race or just having a blast on steep aggressive trails."
