First Look | Corratec Presents the InsideLink 10Hz 175 Endurobike

Corratec presented the InsideLink 10Hz 175 enduro bike at the Eurobike Media Days 2015 for the first time, with it, the traditional company hopes to establish itself in the enduro sector. Like their existing models the bike features their 10Hz system, whereby a MDU-elastomer adds additional rider comfort.

Das Corratec Enduro 175 kommt mit der firmeneigenen 10Hz-Technologie und einer knalligen Lackierung.
The Corratec InsideLink 10Hz 175 comes with the firm’s own 10Hz technology and a loud paint finish.
Das 10Hz-System besteht aus einem MDU-Elastomer, das bereits geringe Schläge auf den Hinterbau dämpft.
The 10Hz-technology is based around a MDU-elastomer, which filters out small bumps from the rear suspension..

The InsideLink 10Hz 175 offers 160mm travel front and rear and at the back end the 10Hz system offers an additional 15mm travel through the elastomer system. This aims to dampen smaller impacts which are too small to activate the rear shock at the start of suspension travel. Corractec claims that the patented system offers a noticeable increase in comfort and traction.

Der Inside Link soll ein vortriebsstarkes Fahrwerk garantieren.
