At around 1200g for the frame weight (depending on size), you’re saving 500g over a typical aluminium frame, and this, combined with a press fit bottom bracket and 12mm rear axle results in a very light and efficient ride. The HTC100 is born to go fast.
We’ve designed the HTC100 around 29” wheels. It’s well known that these larger wheels roll over roots, rocks and steps well. They maintain momentum and provide increased traction in the dirt. 29ers are quicker on tarmac too and with a lower profile treaded tyre can cover high mileage on smoother surfaces. We feel they work really well on a performance hardtail and add to the mile eating nature of this bike.
Equipped with an air sprung RockShox fork, this gives great control and compliments the bike’s intentions very well. A tapered steerer, 15mm axle and 100mm of travel keep the bike on track. A lock-out dial firms the ride for tarmac stretches.
The specification of the HTC100 is aimed at the performance rider. 1x11 transmissions give wide range gear options and reliable shifting in all conditions. We choose Shimano for the disc brakes too, for both performance and reliability and easy servicing.
Finishing kit is from premium brands – Mavic, Continental, and Race Face. We don’t cut corners – we give you a complete package, regardless of price.
