Knolly Interbike 2008

Knolly debuted a new downhill prototype at Interbike this year that they’re hoping to have ready for the 2010 season. The first prototype they’ve developed embodies similarities between the Knolly bike lineage that should bode well for them.

Noel from Knolly showed us some of the details of their unnamed dedicated downhill race bike. See the details in the video located above.

A lot of the features and technology from the current Knolly’s (V-tach, Endorphin) were put in to practice when they created this new bike. Some of the features are outlined below:

  • Features Knolly’s dual four bar linkage

  • Designed to have a low leverage ratio using a 9.5 x 3″ shock
  • Has 5 angular contact bearings
  • 150mm rear end

  • Low foward idler pulley made of out 7075 and has a dual row angular contact bearing
  • Idler pulley has multiiple positions in .5mm increments for multiple chain lines 56 56.5 57.5 and 58mm
  • The pulley allows for decoupling of the chain a bit and helps maintain nimbleness as the chainstays are shorter than the linkage.
