The 101 MK1 Tuning Project

The magazine MOUNTAINBKE has tested the Liteville 101 against four competitors in the full-suspension marathon class. Read a first excerpt of the test here. The full version of the test will be published in the 07/2017 issue of MOUNTAINBIKE.

TEST RESULT

MOUNTAINBIKE 07/2017 concludes with the test result "superb":


"The LITEVILLE 101 is a dream! The uphill performance is exhilarating as much as the downhill capability. It convinces with perfect handling and a magnificent chassis. It is balanced nicely and after all equipped with the best there is on the market."
"The Liteville 101 surprises with its lightweight construction yet downhill oriented performance. The outstanding handling makes it by far the most complete all-rounder mountain bike in the test field. It represents a bike that performs great in a marathon race, yet with minor adaptions - such as wider tires - it will put a lot of All-Mountain bikes in the shade."
