The New Kellys Noid and Swag.

THINK LINK SUSPENSION SYSTEM

Undeniably, the most awaited premiere in Kellys 2018 bicycle range was the all-new full suspension platform called THINK LINK.  It’s a unique system of totally independent rear suspension, which ensures no negative influence from drivetrain and brakes, no pedal kickback and constant rear triangle geometry with absolutely no chain growth. THINK LINK keeps the grip at the best possible level and provides smooth stroke allowing uninterrupted power transfer from a crank to the rear wheel. It comes down to the fact that the suspension works independently being active in any situation utilising the full potential of the bike and the rider anytime anywhere.

Benefits:

  • Fully independent suspension (no drivetrain and brakes influence);
  • No pedal kickback;
  • Constant rear triangle geometry with no chain growth;
  • Super stiff and precise thanks to unique self-locking oversized THINK LINK Axles;
  • Super-short chainstay thanks to unique rocker design (SWAG: 419 mm);
  • Uninterrupted power transfer from crank to the rear wheel.

ALL-NEW KELLYS NOID AND SWAG

The unique design of full-suspension frames with THINK LINK suspension introduces the new generation of Kellys progressive mountain bikes, which can go far beyond the riding experience known to the riders so far. The new suspension system has been applied in new 2018 NOID and SWAG bikes with 205 and 165 mm of travel accordingly.

New full-suspension frames of 2018 NOID and SWAG utilises not only THINK LINK suspension system but also many unique features like the Drive Core. It’s a super stiff and lightweight hollow structure around the bottom bracket. Being the heart of new frames it carries all the stresses from drivetrain and suspension ensuring extreme lateral stiffness, top suspension performance without any weight penalty. Another feature of the new frames is the Force Vector Design – the strength-to-weight optimized frame design, based on the direct load transfer. Without unnecessary intermediary elements which can cause weight and stiffness penalty, and also performance issues,  the frame structure bears the load directly thanks to the lightweight but strong and buckling-resistant tubing. NOIDs and SWAGs come also with the Integrated Frame Protection (IPS) and the Stealth Cable Routing (SCR) which not only secure the frame from damage but also make the bike super silent. Cable or chain knocking no more. Moreover, the new NOID features the Vario Geometry System exclusively, which allows the rider to precisely tune bike’s geometry according to the needs. The chainstay length, BB height, seat and head tube angles can be adjusted within a couple of minutes.
