|Our new engage CLADE e11 frame is the core piece that incorporates all engage components in a total product. |
When constructing the frame, cubic tubular cross-sections were chosen to allow both maximum comfort and enormous stiffness during out-of-the-saddle pedalling.
An assymetric chainstays allows for an optimal use of all spaces and is designed for tires up to a width of 28 mm, thus also offering enough space for Aero wheelsets.
Due to differently acting forces during propulsion, seatstays and chainstays have been adapted without compromise. Furthermore, chainstays, bottom tubes and seatpost tubes have laterally moulded beads at the transition point to the bottom bracket shell, which stiffens this area even more without adding weight. Maximum propulsion included!
Internally arranged pulls are compatible with mechanic and electronic gear-shifting systems and provide for a neat look. Threaded bushings that are placed beneath the left chainstays for the installation of a DI 2 storage battery also allow the use of new electronic gear-shifting systems.
A sloping top tube and the resulting increased flexibility provide for superior riding comfort.
A BB 386 EVO bottom bracket shell with direct power transfer is built in so that not even the tiniest bit of energy is wasted.
