Applebee

Throw your leg over the bike and let the fun begin with the Applebee's relaxed trail geometry. Fun will last for the whole ride due to specs that simply show no weakness. New: Frame sizes 14" and 16" fitted with 27.5" wheels.

  • Lightweight frame with optimal stiffness
  • SR Suntour Raidon 29" air/oil fork with alloy steerer
  • Capable Shimano SLX/Deore 10-speed drivetrain
  • Reliable Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
  • Frame size specific wheel dimensions

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim 27.2mm seatpost that offers some flex and therefore increases comfort especially when riding over rough ground. At the bottom the large diameter nicley flows into the bottom bracket shell and downtube to provide great stiffness and drivetrain efficiency.

Hydroforming

Using water or oil pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers to perfectly withstand any load without any weight penalty. This means better steering precision on the trail and higher longevity.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Smooth Welded

Additional step in welding. The first, rippled weld, typical for aluminium, is covered with a second smoother weld. This not only improves looks but also lowers the risk of notches in this spot, which makes the frames more durable.
