The new Fitness Bike adopts its predecessor’s striking frame design and features high-quality components in the form of a lockable Suntour NRX-D LO suspension fork with 63 mm spring travel, Shimano Deore gears and hydraulic Shimano disc brakes. Ergon handlebar grips, a stem offering angle adjustment and the high-quality Allay saddle ensure ample comfort even on longer trips. The white/silver colour combination underscores the sporty character of this bicycle model. The fitness bike is available in three frame sizes (49 cm, 52 cm, 55 cm).
