LITEVILLE 301 MK15

The all-new Liteville 301 Mk15 (model 2019/ 2020) is the consequent and uncompromising next evolution step of the several times test winner. With its all-new Linear Steering Geometry we were able to generate a flatter steering angle for bigger front wheels and simultaneously combine it with an unknown degree of agility and flexibility.
DuoLink and LevelTune make possible the usage of 27.5" and 29" wheels in the very same frame without accepting compromises.

Staying in the lead at all times

With the best possible feedback the bike has received in the year past, the question remains how one can possibly improve it, still. The 301 Mk15 proves it is possible as it represents the biggest evolutionary step since the 301 Mk8. The leading bike magazines "bike" and "MOUNTAINBIKE" underline this, stating that the trail version of the 301 with its 130 mm of travel is a "superb" and "outstanding" bike.

Conclusion Peter Nilges, 
BIKE tester after riding 
the 2020 models: 

The new 301 Mk15 redefines the standards with a new geometry approach and an unprecedented adjustability for the rider and the choice of wheel size. With the Sram GX model and a price tag of no more than € 4.680,-, the bike has also become reasonably priced.

Conclusion MOUNTAINBIKE 
after the come together of the 
supposedly best bikes of the year, 
the "King of Trails": 

The 15th edition of the cult bike surprises with a super stiff alloy frame, superbly stiff components and a variety of great details included. The shallow geometry rocks! As to the directional stability, it easily outperforms a carving ski and yet it remains as versatile and maneuverable as it always has been…

Präzise wie eine Rasierklinge

Mit radikal neuer Geometrie, an die Rahmengrößen angemessener Kettenstrebenlängen und der neuen verfeinerten Kinematik, vereint das Liteville 301 Mk15 eine unerreichte rasiermesserscharfe Steuerpräzision bei gleichzeitig souveräner Laufruhe.

Laufradgröße anpassbar

2014/15 haben wir beim 301 mit dem DuoLink als erster Serienbike-Hersteller die Option zur Mischbereifung eingeführt. In der Kombination von DuoLink und LevelTune besitzt das Liteville 301 Mk15 heute eine noch größere Flexibilität. Vorderes und hinteres Laufrad mit 27.5˝, mit 29˝ oder eine Mischbereifung mit 29˝/27.5˝ in einem Rahmen bedeuten eine noch nie dagewesene Anpassbarkeit und Performance.

Leicht und steif dank Aluminium

Entwicklung und Werkstoff bedingen sich gegenseitig. Die Konstruktion des Liteville 301 Mk15 setzt in Kombination mit der speziellen Aluminiumlegierung wieder den Benchmark und erreicht einmal mehr Steifigkeitswerte, die die Carbon-Konkurrenz verblassen lässt.

Breites Spektrum an Werks-maschinen

Das 301 Mk15 gibt es für jeden Anspruch als Trailbike mit 130mm und als Enduro mit 160mm Federweg innerhalb eines breiten Preisspektrums in insgesamt 4 attraktiven Ausstattungsvarianten.

Size does not matter

Being agile and yet stable and offering great traction at the very same time? The choice between 27.5" and 29" has become a lot easier now. The 301 Mk15 in sizes M, L and XL is now compatible with both wheel sizes, without accepting compromises. Due to DuoLink and LevelTune, the frame can be adapted to 27.5" and 29" wheels as well as to your individual preferences.
