Our patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ (ABC) pivots represent a paradigm shift in high performance suspension linkage in the most literal sense. ABC ™ pivots consist of an angular contact polymer bushing which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. By carefully controlling the tolerance of these pieces, we are able to specify a torque value on the pivot and can eliminate binding, which has been, until now, impossible. The more you tighten a typical bushing system, the more the pivot will bind. Not so with ABC™ Pivots.
And get this; they’re lighter, more durable, and laterally stiffer than a cartridge bearing. On element we saved 120 grams by switching to ABC™ pivots while increasing rear end pivot stiffness by 105 percent. Yes, you read that correctly; ABC™ pivots are 105% stiffer than a sealed cartridge bearing.
Plus, they need almost no maintenance– just clean the contact surfaces from time to time.
Our patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ pivots are 20 grams lighter (per pivot) and 105% stiffer than sealed cartridge bearings. They’re more durable too.
We’ve got your back. With a first of its kind 76-degree seat angle, you’re in a position to defy gravity at every technical uphill climb. The Straight up geometry and its bio-mechanically correct seat position allows for maximum horsepower. Not only will you get an efficient ride, it’ll save your lower back and limits pressure on your “sensitive areas”... if you catch our drift.
Our groundbreaking SmoothLink suspension features minimal pedal feedback so you get a smoother pedal stroke, especially on uphill climbs. How does it work? By placing the rear pivot above the rear hub axle, we keep the average chain torque line parallel to lower link (the line between main pivot and rear pivot), we eliminate pedal bob.
