Ground-breaking Suspension Frame

Fundamentally, a bike must be light weight yet strong enough to beat rough roads. Creators of this bike have found a way to balance weight and sturdiness by shaping this bike with a silver metallic element known for being solid and light – aluminum.

By using such element, the weight of the bike reduces up to 300 percent less than the weight if steel frame is used.

Not-So-Bumpy Anymore

Thanks to its dual suspension fork, bumpy roads will seem much less bumpy now. How it works? Dual suspension fork means that suspension forks are present both in the front and rear part of the bike.

They work with collaboration by up and down motion. For instance, if the front rear faces a sudden up motion, the rear fork compliments that by moving down. And when times when the rear faces an up-bump, the front rear also goes down.

Dual, also known as full suspension fork work together to absorb and compress reactive forces from the 26 inch wheels, thus delivering a balanced impact on bumps and holes along the way. As a result, you will have a more graceful ride, especially on unpaved trails.

Alloy madness

Alloy is primarily made by combining magnesium, aluminum, and other elements in small percentage. Mongoose Women’s Status 2.2 Full Suspension Bicycle (26-Inch Wheels) possesses alloy as the only component for its wheels. Compared to steel, alloy is three times less heavy making it a more suitable material for wheels.
