A product reveals its flaws only if you stress it beyond its limits. The standards of how much a mountain bike is supposed to withstand are being raised by the day. We have reached a point of where the only limiting factors are your riding abilities and your courage. Well not quite. To get to this point we have to dare to push beyond limits and expose ourselves to new environments. The courage to find and resolve weaknesses is key for the development of a great mountain bike.
With that in mind BiXS will celebrate their UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup debut in Leogang this weekend. The riders Abby Hogie and Anna Newkirk of the Beyond Racing team will line up on LANE DH Prototype bikes. The LANE is BiXS' newly developed enduro platform which will soon be available to the public. Minor modifications on rocker and seatstay helped the bike to more rear shock travel and changed its geometry and kinematics. The main goals of the project are research and development but not to forget great passion for growth, racing and the sport of mountain biking.
