X-Control

 

The legende continues !

 

Our famous X-Control, a veritable icon since its launch in 2001, is still evolving. The standard-setter for all full-suspension bikes dedicated to X country and marathon is available for 2015 with a frame that’s 100 % new.

The FPS2 suspension that X-Control has been based on since 2005 has reached a new milestone and is becoming FPS+. With its 100 mm of travel, this virtual pivot point suspension, designed to eliminate bob, offers excellent pedalling efficiency. Paired with exceptional progressiveness, FPS+ kinematics make the new X-Control the bike with the best efficiency/comfort ratio.

Its 27.5” wheels combined with a specific geometry mean the 2015 X-Control is going all out for versatility. By choosing this wheel diameter, we have opted for the ideal compromise between handling, responsiveness and rollover.
