TECHNOLOGY


DAMPING SYSTEM

At first sight, the frame of the Liteville 301 can hardly be distinguished form a conventional mountain bike frame where the damper is placed parallel underneath the top tube. The main difference is that the damper is not mounted at the front of the frame, but at the rear where the top tube and the seat tube meet.

Designing the damping system this way is the result not of the idea to simply construct something different. It was our goal to design a four-bar linkage with a mature basis. Damping forces are to be lead into the frame as subtly as possible in order to protect both the damper and the frame.
The main advantage hereby is that the forces that come from the rear triangle of the frame are led into the main frame where it is most stable: exactly where the top tube and the seat tube meet. On top of this, the force is neutralized in parts by the forces led into the frame by the rider’s weight. Conventionally designed mountain bike frames that have the damper placed underneath the top tube face another problem. The forces by the rider and by the impacts of the rear frame work in the same direction and thereby unnecessarily stress the frame.

FRAME SIZES/ SCALED SIZING

The correct frame size influences the performance of the entire bike. Yet it is not only the frame size that is to fit the rider, but also the wheel size. That is why our frames, depending on the frame size and the body height of the rider can be built with different wheel sizes (26”, 27.5” and 29”) and are thus perfectly adapted to the rider’s individual expectations.
Depending on the frame size, these are our wheel size recommendations:
Frame size S:
Rear 26” / Front 27.5”
Frame size M:
Rear 27.5” / Front 29”
Frame size L:
Rear 27.5” / Front 29”
Frame size XL:
Rear 27.5” / Front 29”

GEOMETRY

Because of the different setup possibilities, there is a large number of different geometry combinations and it is not possible to display these in a traditional geometry table. This is why we have developed a geometry generator which will give you the exact geometry of your preferred setup.

Liteville Custom Color

You want your 301 to be painted individually, yet you are not sure about the exact color scheme? This is where the Liteville color configurator comes into play: based upon a Liteville 301 frameset, you may now choose between 100 RAL colors and evaluate, how your choice harmonizes with painted rims or forks. The color configurator is an Adobe Flash Application and is thus not available for Apple iPads and iPhones.

HIGHLIGHTS

RockShox Chassis

The new RockShox Monarch DebonAir damper is the perfect choice for our approved chassis. Der 301 MK12 frameset is available as a 140 mm version (All Mountain) or as a 160 mm version (Enduro).

Vario Headset

The Liteville 301 MK12 features the VarioSpin head tube, the first and still only on the market with a fully integrated headset bearing.

Patent
DuoLink

Two different wheel sizes can be mounted in the rear without negatively altering the geometry of the bike (Design Patend pend.). The front position is for a small rear wheel, the rear for a big one.

Syntace Chain Guide

Only since we have worked on this component with the highest ambitions, we came to the conclusion that a chain guide is a must-have for all bikes, even those with “less” travel.
