Riding Fun Plus.

There are said to be bikers who go for rides without heartrate monitor and who do not aim for new speed records. Instead they prefer looking for yet undiscovered or even unrideable trails – especially for them we built the Whaka+ ES. The a little more relaxed position, balanced 140 millimeters of spring travel, but first and foremost the voluminous 2.8" tyres guarantee that most of your downhills will end with a wide grin in your face.

  • Responsive Fox Float Performance Elite chassis

Grip ohne Ende

#19/2016

The 3" wide tires offer endless grip therefore delivering a secure ride especially when descending. Rippled trails turn into smooth-flowing trails and steep slopes less scary. Uphill the plus tires offer more traction, too. Yet, due to their higher weight they don't offer the same quick acceleration.
