Dear friends and customers,
The New Year 2014 is already arrival and the Taipei Cycle Show is calling again.
After refining once again, here is the notice of Caribou’s NEW products for you.
QB-PINION-Hardtail // 650B MTB, compatible with PINION gear box + Gates belt drive
Fed up with rear derailleur and their costly maintenance?! Want to offer your customers something radically different from anything else?! Please welcome our Hardtail designed around the Pinion gearbox. We also have another suspension version while creating this model since we realized that all the advantages of that system would be amazing on MTB models.
Don’t forget: less maintenance = more ride!!!
QB-ES650B // 650B E-Suspension 130mm travel, compatible with BOSCH 2014 New Version
It’s designed for the next benchmark in pedelec system- this year, again, Caribou upgrade by version 2 for matching the Bosch new 2014 E-bike System that provides a greatly improved clearance with the ground, more torque, and new shifting algorithm for shifting under load. It was designed to allow you to trounce all of your personal best records on an MTB and take you to the top 1% of athletes worldwide! We also managed to define a consistent geometry while using 27.5” wheels. Combined with 130mm of travel, it gives you the perfect all-around combo. The slack head angle provides stability for a bike that can go fast and steady in downhill and that will go at 25 KPH (at least) on all the profiles! You will enjoy the great torque of the Bosch’s system on that super steep climb you never dare trying. Consistent geometry and big wheels will provide to the laziest among us the bike they were looking for!!!”
New stainless steel material:
Reynolds 921 frame// 650B and 700C
Reynolds have launched a new stainless tube-set, branded 921, to expand our range of stainless alloys that already include the 953 margin steel and 931 precipitation hardening steels. This range of tubing is expected to be around 60% of the cost of 953, and opens up a new sector for quality stainless steel sets. The tensile strength, at over 1000 MPa, makes this probably the highest strength, cold-worked tubing in the bike industry at present.
Come to Caribou to check-out our 650B MTB and Road-Racing frames.
New open model for MY2014-MY2015:
QB DH // DOWNHILL with 200mm Travel
