AUTHOR Ninja FR 2016 - original alloy frame platform

AUTHOR Ninja FR 2016archival modelOriginal alloy frame platform  |  RST Stitch Super fork  |  X-FUSION Vector shocker

Full-suspension bike Author NINJA FR with alloy frame, RST fork and original DLP system. About 26" should not be forgotten and certainly not by freeride bikes. This segment should be all about bike playfulness and universality, which can handle challenging terrain, but also playful trails. 180 mm travel will not limit you even on the way down the most demanding trail with big drops, but you will be also able to climb every single hill on your own. Components have been proved on the previous model, thats why even for the 2016 are Maxxis tires, RST fork and Sram shifting not missing. New are four piston brakes from TRP.

The recommended size and stature are just indicative. It is recommended to always consult your choice with the dealer.

  • S/T c-t - seat tube (center-top), length of the seat tube from the middle of BB parts to its peak
  • S/T c-c - seat tube (center-center), length of the seat tube from the middle of BB parts to an axle of the upper tube
  • T/T h - top tube horizontal, horizontal lenght of the upper tube
  • T/T a - top tube actual, real lenght of the upper tube
  • H/T - head tube, head tube lenght
  • C/S - chain stay, chain brace lenght
  • W/B - wheel base, wheelbase (front and rear axle lenght)
  • S/T ang. - seat tube angel, angle between the seat tube axis and an imaginary line connecting the axes of the front and rear wheel
  • H/T ang. - head tube angel, angle between the head tube axis and an imaginary line connecting axes of the front and rear wheels
  • F/L - fork length, fork length from the head parts bottom to the middle of the front wheel
  • B/B drop - bottom bracked drop, lenght between an imaginary line connecting wheels centers and BB parts, measured from BB parts
  • F/R - fork rake, distances between the head tube axis and fork axis measured at center of the front wheel, so-called. off set

Used technologies

DLP is a system based on the four-pivot mechanism principle. One of the major and unique ideas that were applied in the complete DLP® suspension system was placing a DLP® link above and in front of the rear wheel axle. The link together with the position of the main pivot and the linkage geometry create a virtual pivot point path throughout the travel. This path is one of the basic parameters to achieve the required suspension properties (kinematics) of the rear triangle.
The DLP® system with the optimum position and shape of the linkage contributes to the overall suspension characteristics depending on the purpose of the individual model series (so-called Leverage Ratio / rear wheel suspension characteristics).
