Suspension is important on a small-wheeled bike. Ours is provided by a polyurethane block between the main and rear frames; lightweight and effective, it smoothes out the lumps and bumps en route, while the natural damping of the material avoids excessive “bounce”.
Two levels of resistance are available, to suit body weight and riding style. The first is standard suspension. This is fine for many, particularly lighter people and those who ride and pedal smoothly. Our second choice, firm suspension, is possibly more suitable for those weighing over 80kg, those who cycle more aggressively and those prepared to sacrifice some comfort in return for a more responsive ride.
