Top Features for sporty Trail Newbies.

Even on STEVENS' entry level XC hardtail you will find no weaknesses. Instead, the Sentiero boasts a premium alloy frame including tapered steerer, pressfit bottom bracket, and forged disc brake post mounts.  Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain and the same agile geometry with size-specific wheel dimensions as the top of the line models.

  • Smooth running aluminum hardtail for worry-free touring rides
  • New frame shape with boost axle standard for lateral stiffness and internal cable routing
  • Responsive RockShox Recon Gold Solo air suspension fork w/ lockout
  • New Shimano SLX 2x11-speed drivetrain w/ Side Swing front derailleur
  • Mavic Crossride Disc wheels with thru-axle (front)

Technology

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.

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied - especially when the bike has a higher total weight due to luggage or an e-drive and battery. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.

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.

QR15-Steckachse vorn

Die „15“ steht für den Achsdurchmesser, das „QR“ für „Quick Release“, also Schnellspanner – und zusammen für die funktionellste Methode, das Vorderrad in der (Feder-)Gabel zu verankern. Die Vorteile sind bestechend: hohe Steifigkeit, präzise Bremsscheiben-Positionierung und kinderleichte Bedienung. Also stattet STEVENS fast alle Mountainbikes und sogar die hochwertigsten Trekking-, Crossbikes und Pedelecs damit aus. Vor allem bei den 29“-MTBs wird sogar noch die Einbaubreite erhöht – von 100 auf 110 mm, das ist noch steifer.

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.

The good-natured Sentiero really likes long outings. Despite some minor spec-drawbacks it's a great all-round package.

Even though it has an aluminium frame the Sentiero is without a doubt the most comfortable bike. The long rear triangle provides directional stability despite the fact that the Sentiero is a very nimble bike. This is what the name stands for: Being at home on the trickiest trails.
