The editors of English cycling magazine Cycling Plus got their hands on one of the first PARALANE test bikes during the global press launch. During a 100k ride through the backyard of Berlin on all kinds of road surfaces the PARALANE could proof its versatility and compliance.
Especially the noticeable compliance that we have achieved with looking into comfort improving areas (C.I.A. Technology) took the tester’s attention: “The first true test of the frame’s quality came on our test ride’s long cobbled sections. Here, we could really get a sense of just how much work the back end was doing, with its combination of flattened seatstays and chainstays and super-flattened lower seat-tube merging with the flex of the excellent CPX carbon seatpost in its smaller 25.4mm diameter.“
„At speed the Paralane’s back end feels alive with compliance.“
Cycling Plus‘ verdict: „The Paralane occupies the ground between endurance and gravel machine, and is a fine allrounder. Its geometry, which sits between full-on endurance and race, makes sense to us too.“
