KTM isn't a brand you hear about too often on this side of the Atlantic. But the Austrian company is one of those hidden gems that occasionally emerges out of Europe to remind you why they continue to be the center of cycling. Originally (and still) a maker of high end motorsports bikes, KTM has brought its engineering prowess to bear on some of the most advanced mountain and road bikes around. Tested in the Austrian Alps, proven in racing, and ready to take your performance to the next level. .
The KTM Ultra One 29er mountain bike is an alloy hardtail MTB that's ready for fun, adventure, and discovering where the dirt can take you. The 6061 aluminum frame is stiff, lightweight, and highly durable--so it can take a beating on the trail and still keep going. When the trail gets tough, an SR Suntour SF15 XCT suspension fork with 100mm of suspension travel helps smooth things out for an easier ride.
Shifting duties are handled by Shimano's Altus 3x9 groupset. With a crisp shifting action, legendary reliability, and excellent design, Altus is a great value in components for mountain bikers of any level, from beginners to more advanced riders. Braking is handed by the Shimano M355 hydraulic disc brakes, which deliver smooth, powerful, easily modulated stopping power in all terrain and weather conditions. Rounding out the build are a set of Ryde Taurus rims laced to Shimano RM35 hubs, all wrapped up in Continental X-King 29x2.2" tires. Topping the bike is a KTM VL-3315 saddle, perched atop a KTM forged alloy 27.2mm seatpost.
