Lightweight construction, dynamics, design and comfort – that’s what the ROTWILD GT S inspired by AMG stands for. The efficient thoroughbred special edition racer is limited to 100 models and perfectly combines high performance materials with refined chassis technology and a unique design. Development has incorporated the professional feedback of the AMG ROTWILD MTB Racing Team, preparing the bike for the most challenging mountain bike race circuits.
The frame consequently follows principles of lightweight construction and dampening comfort. High-tech elements such as the Carbon Modul Monocoque Technology (MMT2) and die EPS Innermold Technology are employed to improve the performance of the High Modulus Carbon fibres used. The exact determination of frame stiffness by ROTWILD’s engineers runs precursor to the MMT2 production process in order to directly adjust the comfort level of the carbon frame.The precise regulation of fibre-orientation and wall thickness through EPS Innermold Technology helps directly influence the properties of the individual frame modules according to constructional and developmental demands. The result is superlight frame weight with maximum stiffness and ideal dampening qualities.
The Formula 33 Factory fork combines low weight with high stiffness. Its adjustable compression and rebound contribute to a consistent ride comfort. This is supplemented by the Pro Tharsis Di2 handlebar and stem – also made of carbon – into which the XTR Di2 group is seamlessly integrated as well as the Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 29-inch carbon wheel-set with its unique design which keeps rotating masses at an absolute minimum. Positioning the mass close to the hub enables quick acceleration and deceleration.
The mountain bike is equipped Shimano XTR drive technology which is controlled via electronic shifting. The multi-shift-function enables shifting over a number of sprockets. The additional syncro-shift-mode makes the front derailleur shift automatically, thus rendering a designated shift-lever obsolete. This individually adjustable function guarantees efficient power transmission, short ergonomic range, tactile feedback as well as reliable, quick and smooth shifting.
Also developed with racing in mind: The brakes. At an overall weight of merely 267g, the hydraulic disc brake Formula AMG R1 Racing FCS is one of the lightest series production disc brakes on the market. The Feeling Control System (FCS) enables tool-free adjustment of the lever’s contact-point to suit the rider’s personal preference and ergonomic needs.
