Rebel Seven Pro G1 2017
The optimal synthesis of the best properties of the 26- and 29-inch bikes characterize this smooth-running, high-propulsion and masterful 650B bike. State-of-the-art assembly standards such as ‘Optional Direct Mount’ and stiff ‘Torque Free Axle’ 12-mm through-axles complete a frame that has been rigorously designed using the ‘Directional Depending Stiffness’ approach and that guarantees optimum power transmission and absolutely reliable handling. With a frame weight from less than 1,000 grams, the Rebel Seven provides an ideal base for a super-light all-rounder for racing, cross-country riding and touring.
Directional Depending Stiffnes
Directional depending stiffness is the ability of a frame or component to optimally respond with high stiffness to the forces acting in the load direction while ensuring high comfort. In other words, it is the synergy between intended stiffness and desired comfort. In the case of frames, this is achieved by designing transverse-oval tube shapes, the targeted selection of materials (e.g. carbon fibers) and their application (e.g. special layups for carbon fiber reinforced plastics).;
Press Fit Bottom Bracket
Press-fit bottom brackets have a number of advantages. There are no threads that might wear and make disassembly work more difficult. PressFit technology uses clearly less material and thus saves weight compared with conventional technologies. The greater bottom bracket widths provide even higher stiffness in this area and, ultimately, allow larger tire clearance. In addition, press-fit bottom brackets can compensate for technique-related manufacturing tolerances incurred with anisotropic materials (CFRP).
Torque Free Axle
Disc brakes massively stress the frame and the axles due to the absorption of the torsion and shear forces that are generated while braking. Torsion-resistant shafts, called through-axles, are the best way to counter these forces. Storck through-axles are not only used in mountain bikes but have long made their way into cross and road bikes with disc brakes as well. They provide stability, precise fit and stiffness.
Optional Direct Mount
The selection of shifting variants for off-road assemblies is very large. Opting for a triple, double or single chain ring is a completely individual choice. Those selecting a single chain ring can dismantle the front derailleur mount and give the frame an uncluttered look that is undisturbed by a superfluous assembly platform. The frame can just as quickly be prepared again for a multiple chain ring: a minor detail with a major impact.
It all starts with an idea, a mental concept or a vision - inspired by the knowledge of what motivates bikers, what fascinates them and what ultimately makes sense, is useful and innovative. This is followed by meticulous work on the project – the search for and discarding of solutions, and starting again from scratch with a new approach. The results continually have to be measured against the objectives. Our engineers are untiring in their efforts of searching for creative solutions and coming up with improvements that make technical sense. A wide range of technologies that make our frames and components the best in the world have been created this way. All the development steps take place at our headquarters in Idstein and all ideas, new developments and research projects are initiated, managed, coordinated and reviewed in Germany. Before going into production, every product is tested by means of scientific methods and on our own test benches. German Engineering is an attribute of all Storck products – an attribute we are proud of and that our customers can rely on.
The approaches of our engineers pursue a single aim: to develop frames and components with outstanding technical features. Read on to find out what technologies abbreviations such as DDS, TFA or PPT stand for.
