Instructions on intended use
- The permissible overall weight (rider incl. baggage and bicycle) should not exceed 115 kg. Under certain circumstances the permissible maximum weight can be further limited by the component manufacturers’ recommendations for use.
STEVENS cyclo-cross bicycles are intended for hard-surface terrain, i.e. for tarred roads and bicycle lanes or gravel field tracks, where the wheels do not lose ground contact. In addition, they are well suited for well paved gravel paths and forest roads as well as off-road trails with a slight slope where a temporary loss of tyre contact with the ground due to small steps may occur.
They are suitable for use on easy terrain and cyclo-cross competitions, however not for off-road use (mountain bike use), namely for all mountain, enduro, downhill (DH), freeride, dual slalom, downhill/freeride parks, jumps, drops and in bike parks etc.
Due to their design and fittings, STEVENS cyclo-cross bicycles are not always suitable for being used on public roads. If you want to use them on public roads, these bikes must be fitted with the prescribed equipment. Observe the traffic rules when riding on public roads. For more information see chapter “Legal Requirements for Riding on Public Roads” in your comprehensive STEVENS user manual on the enclosed CD-ROM.
STEVENS bicycles of the category 3 are not suitable for off-road use over challenging and blocked terrain, jumps, slides, stair riding, stoppies, wheelies, tricks etc.!
