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.
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.
