#downhill #fullsuspension #handcrafted
Zumbi F-44 – is a series of downhill full suspension frames and bicycles created by riders for riders. Legendary design repeatedly underwent the toughest tests during the World Cup or National Championships in France, Portugal and Great Britain, systematically taking the podium.
HAND CRAFTED FROM SCRATCH IN EUROPE
Zumbi MTB frames are 100% handcrafted from 7020 aircraft aluminum
No interference in the structure of the material ensuring its genuine and ultimate durability
Unbeatable stiffness combined with the lowest weight possible. F44 frame weights only 3170g in size ‘M’, without shock
Innovative concept of weight distribution with low center of gravity helps in spontaneous reaction giving geometry an offensive characteristic
Optimally selected head- and seat- tube angles allow perfect control in the slippery corners
Our top-of-the-line downhill frame has now:
Longer front-end with bigger reach parameter
Optimized chainstays for the perfect grip and stability
Head tube angle reduced to 63°
“Actually that tendency to shorten the rear-end of the bike results in loss of stability at higher speeds and this is not what we expect for rock gardens and big drop riding. In Zumbi our mantra is: balanced center of gravity, a real source of the smooth and precise suspension work. This is what we care about the most when we are starting to design our bikes. We always want to have a full confidence on the trail, so pushing the bike harder and faster will never surprise us with unpredicted slips of the rear wheel or loss in braking effectiveness. Eventually who doesn’t like that impression of wheels being almost sticked to the ground?”
|Top tube lenght||595mm||610mm||625mm|
|Seat tube lenght||420||420||420|
|Head tube angle||63||63||63|
|Seat tube angle||74||74||74|
|Head tube lenght||115mm||1158mm||120mm|
The use of CNC parts influences the exceptional side stiffness of the frame and allows to save some extra grams
FLOATING PIVOT SUSPENSION (FPS)
Suspension is based on a most unique and effective system with a virtual swing point (FPS) supporting the progressive way of how the shock works
Suspension characterize full isolation from the forces coming from pedaling and braking.
FPS also increases pedaling efficiency while eliminating chain-suck and shock pumping-up in the same time
Each weld is precisely made by skilled craftsmans
It is a kind of art which expresses the passion of its creator, also emphasizing the high quality of the Zumbi frames
BOOST 148mm thru axle
Wider rear chain-stays provides an even stiffer connection of the wheel hub to the frame, giving extra space for a larger plus-size tire
INTERNAL CABLES ROUTING
Guarantees “clean” frame look and maintenance-free structure of whole bicycle protecting inner cables from dirt and mud
