ROCKNROLLA - FRAME PLATFORM
The ROCKNROLLA is built on a frame with a relatively simple single-pivot rear wheel suspension design with a travel of 100 mm and a shock absorber 165 mm long with a travel of 38 mm. Simplicity and versatility are among the basic requirements in a slopestyle frame. The use of plain gauge (solid wall) tubes and large sections made of Al 6061, combined with TIG welding followed with thermal treatment of the frame are natural in this case. The high-grade industrial bearings and the SSH (Stainless Steel Hardwear) technology ensure smooth operation of the rear wheel travel. An indispensable frame structural element is the mounting system, which is compliant with ISCG’05 (International Standard Chain Guide), allowing easy mounting of the chain guide on the frame. At the same time, the standard maximizes the guide functionality.

ROCKNROLLA - SUSPENSION SYSTEM OF FRAME PLATFORM
The ROCKNROLLA model series uses a single-pivot rear wheel suspension system. Here, the swinging triangle is joined with the frame base via a single pivot. The shock absorber is mounted at the top of the swinging triangle and joined with the frame.
The design of the ROCKNROLLA 2011 series is based on the 2010 model with the travel performance of the rear wheel suspension system optimized for slopestyle and freestyle. At first, the suspension was of a “harder” character with a performance similar to that of a rigid frame. This tuning of the rear swinging triangle eliminates swaying when pedaling and awkward wheel springing when taking off a jump. However, the springing is fully active for major impacts on the rear wheel and when landing.
