Propain Factory Racing is Testing a New Downhill Bike

What you are looking at here is a first stage Prototype which Propain are using as a test dummy so they can understand if it should supersede the current Rage DH design.

It is quite literally hot off the press and is one sexy looking machine. Propain Factory Racing Junior rider Luke Williamson squeezed in a day of riding between Maribor and Lousa and seems happy to hit practice on it here to gain some valuable feedback. Propain's main elite rider George Brannigan coming into this event with an injured hand hasn't been able to test ride the bike yet so he has decided to stick with what he knows for now but says he is keen to carry out some back to back testing after the race this weekend.

We don't have any numbers on the geometry or suspension ratios etc as of yet, only thing we know is this bike is set up as mixed wheel size and shares the same amount of rear wheel travel as the current Rage at 215mm. Expect a more detailed feature on this beast if it goes into production..
