The best downhill bike that BERGAMONT has ever built sets benchmarks in terms of sensitivity, riding performance and reliability. 15 years’ experience in building gravity bikes and the professional use in World Cup racing all went into developing the new bike. Thanks to its variable geometry via Flip Chip Technology and adjustable chain stay length, its compatibility with both 26" and 27.5" wheels and its precisely adjustable suspension, the STRAITLINE is perfectly adaptable to every riding style. BERGAMONT submits to its own high safety and quality standards. Frames and components are tested to the highest standards in cooperation with EFBE Prüftechnik GmbH.

Adjustable Chainstay Length

Technology Image
The length of the chainstay can be adjusted to a short or long setting via a small insert that can be mounted in different orientations.

Finite Element Method

Technology Image
To simulate and analyze individual frame components even before the first samples are fabricated, the Bergamont engineers use the latest FEM computer software.

Progressive Link System

Technology Image
The frame’s kinematics are designed to always allow the suspension to work as effectively as possible in all riding conditions.

Flip Chip Geometry Fitting

Technology Image
The Flip Chip is a small adaptor which can be mounted in two directions, thereby altering the frames geometry in such a way that the steering angle gets steeper or slacker.

Low Center of Gravity

Technology Image
This technology stands for the dedication of Bergamont designers in their efforts to achieve the lowest possible center of gravity.
