Triumph has gone back to its bicycle building roots by unveiling a limited edition mountain bike, that will go on sale in January.

 

Triumph was founded by German entrepreneur Siegfried Bettmann, starting out by building basic bicycles in 1894. As the company moved into the motorcycles, the bicycle division separated (and eventually became the famous Raleigh company) but now the John Bloor led company is back in the pedal power game with an exclusive, limited edition run of 500 high specification all-terrain bicycles, called the Triumph XCX Mountain Bike. The bicycle features a custom 6061 lightweight hard tail aluminium frame, in 15”, 17” or 19” frame sizes, with full internal cable and hose routing, offering nimble, precise handling in all conditions with a clean, understated look.

 

Finished in a stealth matt black and silver colour scheme, the XCX Mountain Bike features the race-proven Rockshox XC30 suspension fork, packed full of legendary Rockshox technology and boasting an ample 100mm of travel.

Added to this comes the new Shimano M7000 SLX 11 speed drivetrain, including new Shadow RD SLX 11 speed derailleur, HG Cassette sprocket and RAPIDFIRE Plus shift lever, with integrated gear indicator for effective gear selection every time.

 

This is combined with the new FSA Comet Megaexo crankset and bottom bracket, and the inclusion of a KMC X11 chain. Brakes are Shimano’s M315 hydraulic callipers front and rear with Shimano 180/160mm discs, for firm, assured stopping power.

 

The acclaimed 142mm WTB Volt Race saddle also ensures riders benefit from an award winning level of comfort as part of the standard equipment.

 

Custom Triumph branded Velo lock-on grips are mated to 6061 Aluminium, 720mm wide handlebars and an aluminium oversized stem for precise, comfortable control and minimal weight .

 

Grip is supplied by 27.5” (650b) Kenda Slant 6 tyres, mounted onto lightweight Alex AJ2 rims with Shimano and Formula hubs, laced with stainless steel spokes, which are finished in black.
