DRAW THE LINE

“To be the fastest, you have to get creative.” It was with this principal in mind that we set out in 2014 to build an all-new thoroughbred downhill machine. You've seen the hype, now read the theory!

Suspension Concept

Kinematics

When developing the Sender’s four-bar suspension system we set out to create the perfect mix of three interlocking characteristics: anti-squat, pedal kickback and anti-rise. Finding the sweetspot for all three results in a system that delivers efficiency, control and builds momentum on track.

Inspired by motocross setups, our all-new MX Link enables us to tune the shock leverage ratio independent of any other factors.

The combination of our MX Link and the latest generation of lightweight, highly adjustable air shocks means we can create the ideal racing suspension setup consisting of three distinct phases.

Phase 1: Air shocks require more force for activation than coil shocks. The MX Link transmits high power at the start of the stroke to overcome this. The result is outstanding responsiveness, small bump sensitivity and traction around the sag point equal to riding a coil shock.

Phase 2: Lower power through the mid-stroke provides a stable platform to reduce momentum loss. This enables the rider to actively pump for more track speed and make pinpoint line choices.

Phase 3: We combine the progressiveness of air shocks with a moderate progression at the end of the stroke to avoid blowing through the travel and give the suspension its bottomless feel.

Geometry

Geo Tune

No two tracks are the same, but Geo Tune means you can transform the Sender’s geometry to match the terrain. For tracks that are either faster and steeper, or flatter and twistier, standard 63° headset cups can be swapped out for eccentric cups that enable a slacker 62° or steeper 64°. Chainstay length is also easy to adjust to suit both course and riding style. Where tight corners make all the difference, the shorter 430 mm setting provides a rapid responding rear end. If high speed is what it takes, the longer 466 mm setting increases stability.

Construção

Triângulo dianteiro em carbono

Escolhemos o carbono, não para reduzir peso, mas pelas suas extraordinárias propriedades de resistência e amortecimento. Ao modificarmos a camada de carbono e a espessura das paredes, o resultado é uma estrutura altamente resistente, reforçada nas zonas onde mais precisa.

Triângulo traseiro em alumínio

Os acidentes acontecem, e o triângulo traseiro é o primeiro a absorver os impactos. O alumínio 6066 T6 torna qualquer dano fácil de avaliar, oferecendo um conjunto seguro e sem perda de desempenho.

Controlo de qualidade

Ao utilizarmos o CT scanner da Canyon, conseguimos examinar a espessura das paredes e as camadas de carbono, de modo a garantir que todos os quadros respeitem os padrões de qualidade. No nosso laboratório de testes simulamos repetitivamente as mais duras condições de condução em descida. Isto significa que a Sender ultrapassa largamente os padrões de segurança da indústria.

Rolamentos

Um sistema de suspensão é tão bom quanto os rolamentos que o incorporam. Todos os rolamentos são fabricados industrialmente e sobredimensionados no triângulo principal, de forma a aguentar as forças laterais aplicadas nesta área.

Se tem a sua própria linha traçada, não siga os outros!
