Highlights of the Swoop 9.0
The Rock Shox ZEB Select fork with 38 mm stanchions offers you 170 mm at the front axle. At the rear, the Super Deluxe Select+ shock also swallows up 170 mm of rough ground. The SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 gear system offers you the right gear in any terrain and with its tremendous spread of the cassette of 10-52 teeth makes it possible to ascent even very steep climbs. When thins go steeply down afterwards, you have a very potent stopper on board with the Magura MT5, which brakes you at any time in a controlled manner. Schwalbe’s top tires Mary Magic and Big Betty in the Addix-Soft compound and with Super Trail casing provide the necessary grip, which perfectly complement the indestructible SUNringlé Düroc SD37 Expert wheelset. SWOOP it.
The Swoop Family
The specifications for the development of the carbon version of the SWOOP were clear - fresh design, modern kinematics and new shock linkage. No stone has been left unturned. Nevertheless, we have retained parts of the DNA of the popular SWOOP AL - progressive geometry, 29" wheels, possibility of geometry adjustment, 170mm suspension travel - no compromises were made here. The kinematics of the SWOOP are progressive, coil shocks also fit well with the bike's characteristics. For high manoeuvrability, we were able to keep the chainstays short at 438mm; despite the long wheelbase and the flat angles, tight corners are no obstacle. Instead of a flip chip for geometry adjustment, we designed the headset to be adjustable, so the cups are angled and can be rotated to vary the head angle by 1.5 degrees.
