Portable aluminum body 

The body frame of this sports bike is constructed from light, high-performance Alpha Aluminum, which enables smooth riding over different terrain at fast speed. The preload suspension fork with 63mm travel is great at absorbing all shocks, as the rider glides over such surfaces.

The lightweight frame provides the rider with quick reaction points as the bodyweight is evenly distributed along the length of the bike.

They have flat-resistant features that prevent a rider from been stranded from having punctured tires.

The thickness and great traction ensure great bike handling, body balance, and velocity when needed.

This sports bike comes with a shift lever system that enables smooth, seamless shifting of bike gears. The Shimano shift levers are equipped with 7-speed levels for quick gear shifting.
