THE FOLLOWING CALCULATION WILL HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT BIKE FRAME SIZE AND SADDLE HEIGHT:

Road/Gravel Inside leg x 0,66 = Frame size in cm
MTB Size S: 155 – 172 cm body height
Size M: 173 – 182 cm body height
Size L: 183 – 192 cm body height
Size XL: >192 cm body height
Fitness
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Hybrid/Touring
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Inside leg x 0,885 = Saddle height on all bikes

If you are exactly between two sizes, you'll have the choice: Choose the smaller frame if you prefer a "racing position" and the bigger frame if you prefer a more comfortable "touring position".

See our video step-by-step instructions on how to determine your frame size. We'll explain you how to easily measure shoulder width, inside leg length and arm length yourself.

  • Description

    Full control on any ground - here comes our new trail bike GROUND CONTROL! A completely redesigned frame matched with an exceptional rear stay design concept indicate a connection to the THRILL HILL racing rig. But the GROUND CONTROL is more than just a racer: With 120mm travel, controlled by a RockShoxDELUXE SELECT+ RT shock absorber at the back, this bike is specialized in rough trails. Working just as well up front is the RockShox RECON SILVER RL, with adjustable compression and rebound. The NX EAGLE 12-speed supplies a wide range of gears and precise shifting, as well as great stability. The high-quality Acros headset and fantastic Mountain King III tyres from Continental round out this unusually good, light trail machine.


    * approx. 14.8 kg, may vary by up to +/- 5% due to manufacturing tolerances, weight for evil pepper green frame, size M, without pedals
