LPC (Low Profile Chainstay) - Almost a Corratec standard, the lowered chain stay provides additional distance between the chain and the chain stay thus reducing the risk of chain breakage. It allows for a triple crank even on a road bike without risk of damage to the frame.
1.5" Headtube - Lays the foundation for thick and rugged tubes, razor sharp steering characteristics and an overall lightweight All- Mountain frame.
