New B’twin 2017: Rockrider 520 And 540 Adapted To The Market Of Cycling Mountain Bike

B’twin continues year after year to amaze all the lovers of cycling revealing its novelties for this season. In 2015 B’TWIN offered to customers bicycles mountain bike that stood out for its quality and low price, although they were not adapted to last novelty of the 27’5, although the project of launching this wheel diameter was underway for 4 years.

Today B’twin offers a very clear their bicycle segmentation so that your customer can choose your model according to its use (leisure, sport, Cross Country And All Mountain in total 12 models). In is segmentation excluding gamma entertainment, already offers all the new diameter of 27’5. As soon as the sizes of wheel, B’TWIN to chosen to offer a solution more logical and very successful, and well, its motto is “accessible to the greatest number of people to the benefits of cycling” and adapting their bikes to the 27’5, they favored all users of cycling higher and more short people without resorting to difficult geometries (impossible), although we can see further info below.

Although, as previously commented are fighting to have the best relationship quality price, but always with an added value, such as innovations. Of echo your own logo consists of four bars which define: beautiful, economical, innovative and best price.

But not only to innovate in high gamma bike, we find innovations and patents made by B’TWIN, des infant sector to sector sport and high gamma.

Well, here are talking about is the objective of B’TWIN, but today I want to introduce their two bike models where more identified the potential of the people who form B’TWIN and struggle to benefit your client.

The following models are located in the segmentation of sport bikes, we are talking about a sector where the user can make a good performance. Thanks to their equipment more technical we get that the bike is at the same time lighter.

What Innovations These Two Models Adopt?

Comfort.

The backstays (B) maintain the same distance 430 mm than the previous model’s 26″, should take into account that this model adopts the new diameter of 27’5 allowing a better maneuverability.

Angle of direction of the box (HT) is 69°compared to the previous model of 26′(71°), thus improving the angle of attack to the obstacle and achieving better stability.

Bottom bracket is 5 mm lower, improving the stability and control of the bike.

To meet the convenience of the user on the bike, B’TWIN designed a power that allows you to get up to 3cm height of the handlebar and be able to ride with a correct position. It must also say that this power, it is designed in a way that also you a touch of design to the bicycle.

The power is wider and shorter to transmit to the user greater rigidity on the handlebar.

In this same power we find a reduction of 4-3 hardware, getting the same rigidity.

Another correction thanking many of the users who have already acquired a model 520 or 540, is the saddle, this year B’TWIN to created a seat called ERGOFITevo, which consists of a pre-formed foam which adapts to the area of the perineum of anyone 100%. We must also add that this takes a”hamac” form to distribute pressure points, whatever the width of hips of the user, and provides exceptional comfort.

Here is the sample of the saddle that was riding the old model as opposed to improving riding B’TWIN now.

Performance.

27’5 The Best Compromise For Users Of Cycling.

When we talk about performance are an improvement on the tires, for this year B’TWIN mounted in their models 520 and 540, rims AERO EVO aluminium double wall TRAIL, which will help to be lighter and more resistant to impacts.

Compared with the previous model of 26″it must be said that the rim is formed it thing for this year the tires will be 28-spoke a total of 32 radio stations.

As you have seen, B’TWIN is not closed the doors when developing new features to install on their bikes, but there’s something even more surprising. It is true that there are few innovations that have been made on the bikes, but there is concern for B’TWIN that will always be ahead of everything. We talk about ease of use to the user, as we have seen above, these models are in the segmentation of sport “for the one seeking after discovering the world of cycling with a leisure bike, a bike more sugar cane”, therefore for not to complicate the enjoyment of it, is sought that the components are easy to use.Here are sample two innovations that will help more than one to bring the bike to 100%.

Tyres B’twin All Terrain Dry.

The question that most all users of biking perform is how much pressure should I have my wheels? Well, today B’TWIN mounted in their models 520 and 540, a tire that suits a graph where it puts the bars of pressure that you put on the basis of your weight on one side.

The Precision Of The 520 And 540 Models.
