2 new Zesty for 2016!

The 2016 Zesty has undergone radical changes...

 

ost+

 

OST+

• A new modern progressive geometry and ergonomy
• A new-look sleek frame
• Improved OST+ suspension

The project given to our engineers was to develop OST+ for:

• Better comfort
• Suspension curve reworked
• Shorter stroke = less heat = more constant over longer rides
• Kinematics optimised for modern 1x or 2x transmission
• Same great pedaling efficiency
→ A bold new bike for a fun ride

OST+ Technology further improved for MY16:

• Suspension curve reworked to better absorb big shocks
• Shock extender removed

In order to succeed our engineers needed a shorter shock length and therefore removed the shock extender (but kept the same travel).

• On 2016 Zestys the shock will be attached to the top tube, rather than the down tube, which leaves more space for the bottle cage and bottle.
• Attaching the shock to the top tube means we have no stress on the downtube and can therefore save weight (50g for Alu / 500g for Carbon).
→ Comfort and efficiency

 

ZESTY AM - The rebirth of an icon

In 2016 the Zesty AM has been given a new lease of life with a radical new geometry : a long front centre & shorter, wider cockpit. OST+ suspension for better comfort and pedaling efficiency, coupled with 150mm of travel front and rear, mean you’ll be at ease in the climbs and ripping down the descents! A bike built for the mountains.
