IB14: New Corsair Revo Enduro Bike Stands Tall, Plus Clever New Atomlab DH Hubs & More

2015-corsair-revo-enduro-mountain-bike

Tall folks rejoice! The new Corsair Revo enduro bike will only be coming in medium, large and XL sizes, and even those are generously proportioned to fit the bigger riders among us. Brand rep Lance Tueller said they saw a real hole in the market for bikes that fit taller riders so they went for it.

The frame itself is a shaped alloy frame built around 650B wheels and 160mm of travel. The suspension is a modified single pivot design using a linkage to help control the leverage ratio (about 2.5:1) and keep it all stiff. It also helps keep the center of gravity low for better handling. Drop in for more details and a look at sister brand Atomlab’s new components…

The top tube lengths are fairly spaced out, designed around a short stem. Internal cable routing for most things is provided, including a stealth dropper post, plus external mounts for things like a standard dropper post.

The suspension was tuned with either the Rockshox Monarch R or Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS shocks in mind, which are your options for the frameset. Retail for the frame and shock is $2,400 USD, add about $200 for the DB Air. Complete bikes will be available but spec will depend on your country’s distributor. The spec shown here is mostly what you’ll get in the U.S…including the Fouriers chainrings and oversized cog. That brand owns their own factory and chances are you’re riding something with a different name on it that was made there.

Corsair’s website is being updated for 2015 as this post went live, look for fresh info there in November.

2015-atomlab-35mm-mtb-handlebar-and-SL-stem

The 35mm SL riser bar is 6061 and comes in at 355g. No, it’s not light, but it’s strong. Width is 760mm with 25mm rise, 5º upsweep and 9º backsweep. Retail is just $75.

It’s paired with the new 35mm SL stem, available in 35/50/70mm lengths with weights of 158g/198g/260g.

2015-atomlab-102-points-of-engagement-rear-mtb-hubs

As reported in Taipei, all of their rear mountain bike hubs now have a whopping 102 points of engagement, yielding a snappy 3.5º engagement. Take a look at that show’s coverage for more new products from Atomlab and Corsair.

The new 7-speed DHR rear hub makes the most of the reduced cog cluster width. It packs five (5!) bearings inside the shell and spreads the spoke flanges out a lot wider. That makes the spoke tension much more even, making the wheel stronger. Just take off the top three cogs on a  10-speed cluster and use your normal 10-speed shifter and limit the derailleur. It’s only available in a 150mm axle spacing, but they’re looking at narrower options for 12×142 options.

$2600 for a single pivot aluminum frame!! Might as well spend a few hundred more and get a carbon Nomad.

Super curious if that DH hub would work with a 10 sp cassette, XO1DH derailleur & shifter. Unless I’ve been reading all the press on X01DH wrong, it’s 10sp spaced, not 11sp.

Yeah to bikes for tall people – can’t remember the last time I walked into a bike shop that had a frame my size available for a test ride.

$2,600.00 for an Aluminum frame?! No way man, I can get an Evil Uprising (Full-carbon frame) with a Fox Float X for that price. Corsair, you may need to find some ways to reduce cost because the price of this frame is unrealistic.

jon and Talmage, this price is a bit off. It was figured on having an American made shock (CBDB Air CS) getting double taxed. Anyone in the USA will be getting a lower price than what is shown here. This came from our first price study. Obviously, using a Taiwanese shock like the Float X that comes on our Konig would be less expensive…sorry for the misinformation that was our fault not Bike Rumor’s. Expect the complete’s to be quite competitive with after market parts on the build. Ride on! – The Corsair Bikes Crew
