At the Red Bull Rampage 2014 Andreu Lacondeguy was victorious on a TUES bike, and Cam Zink’s TUES launched him to Best Trick and second overall. It was our first team podium ever!
The TUES kicks ass because of its low center of gravity and agile handling. It is maneuverable, stable and accelerates out of corners like a bat out of hell. It is for these reasons that DIRT magazine awarded it “Downhill Bike of the Year” several times over.
In 2015 we’re introducing a brand new size to the TUES line, with adjusted geometry to fit a bigger wheel diameter. The bike size is 650B (27,5“). This new and improved setup puts a rider over the center of the bike, enabling them to smoothly clear obstacles while still sitting in the bike with more stability. It is the best TUES we’ve ever made.
The blood and guts of the TUES AL is its frame; it is the best aluminum construction on two wheels, featuring a complex harmony of frame kinematics, hydraulic damping and spring force.
The hydro-modeled mainframe, with its HEADBOX design, is light and rigid, with a low center of gravity and weight saving multi-butting. The frame also features zonal thicknesses to guarantee strength and power transmission.
Our award winning V4L rear kinematic delivers response and linear spring deflection, eradicating sag and stick in the travel. We have also eradicated seasawing in the tail as the V4L ensures that the suspension is fully load bearing and only releases when sucking up obstacles, not pedaling.
Even our entry-level TUES are race ready, with easily adjustable springs and components that are built to last in rough terrain. The TUES AL is the best most affordable ticket to MTB.
