27,5 inches - the best features of both worlds, the wheel size for our COUNT SOLO. Straightforward, superior handling in every situation and a powerful frame made of durable aluminium - what more could you want? The frame tips the scales at only 1,3 kilograms, a great weight for a 27,5-inch bike. With that it offers a huge potential for tuning measures and upgrades. The Crossone wheels of the top manufacturer Mavic are just right for it. Rims, hubs and spokes are perfectly matched to each other - for the feeling of a real system wheel set. They are reliable, high-quality and stiff - and with a weight of only 1885 grams per pair. This is how you get things rolling!
When it goes up and down, when you follow your nose, go wherever the road leads you, the Granite Chief is in its element. A weight of 12,9 kilograms provides best touring and uphill qualities without forgetting the downhill fun. For this, you have the new excellent “Rock Shox Pike RC” suspension fork with a travel of 150 mm at the front. It is a perfect compromise between low weight and convincing performance and, thanks to 35 mm upper fork tubes, it also is extremely torsion-resistant. Two “Formula RX” brakes stop the Chief, at the front there’s the large 203 mm rotor, at the rear it’s a 180 mm one. The disc brake combines a radial main brake cylinder with a brake caliper made from one piece and thus provides brute force and good braking power modulation.
Oversized wheels and yet weighing only about ten kilograms: The COUNT SOLO 2 is a declaration of war. The high-quality frame made of AL 6066 makes this possible and the lightweight M1700 Spline wheels do their bit. The system wheels are of an extremely high quality, no wonder, after all they are made by DT Swiss! Hand-crafted Conti Race King tyres in the light sport edition top off the wheel set. The Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur ensures lightning-fast and precise shifting. Its Shadow profile is extremely narrow to significantly reduce the risk of damages through stones, roots or similar. Besides, the stiffness to weight ratio has been further improved due to the “X Shape” of the outer plate.
With the Granite Chief 1, the trail fun begins: 150 mm of travel can take a lot and the bike’s touring qualities are excellent. A well-developed frame concept meets great features: solid, robust and best functionality. The “Rock Shox Monarch RT3” rear shock has been especially tailored to our requirements and to the Chief. It stands out for its high versatility and its sensitive response. The wheels of the Swiss manufacturer DT Swiss should also be mentioned. The M 1900 Spline is a high-quality system wheelset par excellence: perfectly made, light and with aerodynamic spokes they upgrade the Granite Chief 1.
