Our light wood bikes have a dark wood middle layer. We use two contrasting woods, the main ash wood and darker exotic or walnut wood elements. Sylvanoo wooden frames combine beautiful simplicity, but with advanced technologies of joining wood with composite materials (carbon and aramid fibers – carbon and kevlar). Wood perfectly dampens vibrations (comparative data is included in the table), therefore riding on such a bike is extremely pleasant and no other material is able to compete with it.
The frames are covered with 10 layers of a special yacht varnish protecting against weather conditions and UV radiation. This is the same top coat product that is use in marine industry. It keeps the wood and the environment completely separate and guarantees a long service life.
The wooden frame weighs from 4 to 5 kg depending on the frame version.
Sold As A Frame Only
Mountain is sold as a frame only, so you will need to equipt it with parts. The pictures show an example set of equipment. Technical specification available by request.
Classic Mountain bike geometry
Mountain bike geometry is literally the shape of the bike. The overall shape and geometry of your mountain bike is made up by several different and important measurements. The two main measurements that will affect the way that your bike will fit are Reach and Stack. Modern bikes favour steeper angles that put the saddle directly over the bottom bracket, making pedalling easier and more efficient. Putting your centre of gravity further forward also helps with climbing, making it harder for the front wheel to lift or wander around.
About Mountain bike
Everyone who rides is unique. Their bike should be, too.
Mountain bike is much more than vehicle for its fans, connoisseurs and aficionados.
Mountain bikes should be a strong consideration if you want a versatile, adaptable machine with an upright riding position and flexibility for recreational use as well as for your commute. And if you have a yearning for adventure.
Mountain bikes can be ridden quickly. Their gearing requires less pedalling effort. They can be a lot of fun. The ride is usually comfortable. The best environment for mountain bikes is off-road. Their design is made for clearing nature’s obstacles and barriers. Their rugged, durable design provides for year-round riding. They are more adept than gravel bikes when ploughing through wet mud.
