With increased rear travel and slightly more relaxed geometry, the MAX is perfect for riders who participate in marathon events, but spend the bulk of their time riding their local trails. The MAX frame has 130mm rear travel – matched up to a 140 mm fork, you have a playful and versatile bike at your disposal. Our slack and long geometry allows for a shorter stem and wider bars to be fitted, maximizing stability and technical handling while boosting rider confidence. This new twist on marathon geometry gives the bike maximum stability at speed, during cornering and on steep technical descents, yet climbs among the best in its class, thanks to the finely balanced leverage ratio and anti-squat characteristics. Frame fitted with Rockshox Monarch RT3 shock. The Plus Five chain line is also featured on the MAX frame for improved wheel strength and shifting performance.
Plus Five rear end offset to improve chain angle on 1×12. The biggest deviation from conventional design is what we are calling Plus Five. A re-engineering of the rear end to correct what they believe is a huge flaw in bikes, the chainline offset.
Design and engineered in Howick, South Africa by racing legend and desginer Patrick Morewood. With the goal to build a sustainable bike business upholding the PYGA family values and rich South African heritage, producing, quality Mountainbikes. #bringingithome
