Cycling is addictive! Our engineers and developers are bike enthusiasts, too. Many ideas come to us while we are on our bikes. Discover the variety of innovation that is part of our bikes. We aim at producing and using the very best material. Discover with us the passion for technical refinements down to every detail. This is what makes up the ROSE brand: We build top notch bikes with passion and put our bikes to the test regularly. Every bike – every one-of-a-kind bicycle – is assembled by hand in Bocholt. Numerous tests prove that ROSE bikes are among the best bikes in the world – see for yourself!
27,5 instead of 26 inches – the new wheel size offers an excellent compromise for a versatile and uncomplicated bike. Our ROSE COUNT SOLO 1 impresses with superior handling and a high-performance frame made from durable aluminium that weighs no more than 1300 grams. Equipped with the proven DT Swiss X 1900 Spline wheel set, the COUNT SOLO 1 is a true all-rounder. The advantages of its 27,5” wheels are a smoother running and a better roll-over behaviour. A Spline hub and Straight Pull spokes provide high durability. As the name suggests, those spokes run straight and do not have an elbow that represents the most sensitive part of conventional wheels. The X 1900 Spline wheels feature robust thru axles on front and rear and also offer the possibility to use tubeless tyres. Reliable Shimano Deore brakes are a perfect complement. With 180 mm and 160 mm large brake discs, they are robust and uncomplicated and provide a safe deceleration.
The ROSE GRANITE CHIEF 1 is our trail adventurer. Equipped with 150 mm of travel, it offers enough reserves to even master rougher tours with ease. When it comes to the performance of a bike, the rear stay plays a central role. Response, suspension performance, enough reserves when it really matters. At the rear stay of the GRANITE CHIEF 1, a RockShox Monarch RT3 does its job. This shock not only stands out for the usual high quality offered by the company RockShox, but it also impresses with its technical features. Among them are an adjustable compression with the three different positions Open/Pedal/Lock. When in the OPEN position, the full range of travel can be used, while the travel is reduced in the PEDAL mode to achieve a significantly tighter suspension. When turned into the third position (LOCK), the rear stay suspension is completely locked out. Even the basis model already features a rear derailleur of very high quality: The name Shimano XT is already a legend and stands for top performance, low weight and high durability
All those who are looking for a zippy and uncomplicated hardtail should go for the ROSE THE UPRISING 1. Equipped with reliable and functional parts, the bike offers the ideal basis for exciting bike adventures. Apart from the frame, its lightweight and torsion-resistant X 1900 Spline wheel set from the Swiss high-quality manufacturer DT Swiss lays the foundations for an agile handling. Its Spline hubs with completely straight stainless steel spokes ensure an even load distribution over the spokes thanks to the Straight-Pull system. Conventional spokes with elbows are subject to extreme stresses in the area of the spoke bends which can result in spoke breakage or in the total failure of the wheel. This risk is also reduced by a screw lock that is injected directly into the DT Swiss nipples and thus contributes to the wheels’ stiffness and durability. Thanks to the Shimano Deore brake with 180 mm and 160 mm brake discs and great braking power modulation, the THE UPRISING 1 securely comes to a halt.
Where good acceleration and agile handling are needed, the pro racer Simon Gegenheimer chooses the ROSE PSYCHO PATH. Its DT Swiss X 1700 Spline Two wheels go perfectly with the lightweight and very stiff frame. They offer top acceleration values, apart from an arsenal of additional technical features. The manufacturer DT Swiss has many years of experience in the development of high-quality and precise wheels. Their wheels are thus known to run like clockwork. The DT Swiss X 1700 Spline Two wheels score points with their light, high-strength aluminium alloy, a DT Swiss Spline hub with Straight-Pull system and cold-forged double-butted spokes that combine stiffness with weight reduction thanks to their special shape – thinner at the centre, thicker at the ends. Like our physics teacher used to say: If you want something to move faster, you’ll need to reduce the rotating mass. When accelerating rapidly, you also want to stop safely; if it comes to the worst, the Shimano XT brakes with 180 and 160 mm discs provide a fast deceleration. The Servo-Wave technology promises a direct and fast response and offers 25 percent more performance.
