The ION-G13 shows that the GEOLUTION geometry works on trail bikes with 29-inch tires too. Whether you go for a multi-day alpine tour or only for a short, fast time at your local trail, the ION-G13 makes both up and down quicker. Steep climbing with “old school” geometry bikes tends to lift the front wheel, not so with the ION-G13. Due to the the seat tube angle and the central seating position your front wheel will stay on the ground and the climb will be clean and controlled.
On all the new G-models the four-bar system is now fully equipped with quadruple sealed, ball bearings. The dropouts and linkage rocker have been completely redesigned and optimized in terms of weight and stiffness. The new design swingarm is now stiffer and lighter and the suspension has an extremely fine, small bump response. For best effect, the GEOLUTION frame works best with the specially tuned Fox Float DPS damper and the Fox 34 fork. Alternatively a RockShox suspension Kit (Pike RCT3 and Monarch RT3) is available.
To make a long story short: It is simply a faster bike. The geometry of the bike provides a natural seating position that is better for the lower back muscles, long rides just won’t hurt any more. When the trail goes steeply downhill and obstacles block the way, with the ION-G13 you can stay relaxed, stay centred and simply pick a line for the next curve. In the same situation with other bikes you are already pushing backwards as far as possible in the fear that you might go over the handlebars.
The ION-G13 is available in 5 frame sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL) and will even fit customers with more than 2 meters height (6’7”).

Our baseline got an upgrade for 2017. From now on you get a complete state of the art RockShox suspension kit, which includes the new Reverb Stealth. The WTB KOM i29 rims are light and wide (30mm inner width), mounted to high quality Hope Pro 4 hubs. Crankset, bottom bracket and stem come from Hope as well. Renthal handlebar, SRAM GX 1x11 drivetrain and a SRAM Guide R brakes, Ergon saddle and grips to name only some of the parts.
