Levizer Carbon is the model of the Torpado Impudent 29” range after Ribot.
A responsive and light frame designed to give maximum safety on all types of terrain. the new feature of this frame is the through axle both at the front and at the back. The through axle at the front (on the assemblies provided) gives rigidity and, therefore, steering precision and maximum safety.
Last but not least, the integrated post mount brake connection on the chainstay increases the braking performance and weight reduction. An excellent “oversized” mountain bike for those who do not want to compromise on quality, with a very competitive price.
In the Torpado range, the N identifies the entrance line to the world of Torpado Impudent for the products made of UD (uni-directional) carbon fibre and its dedicated components.
The frames of this line are characterized by the use and arrangement of two different modules of carbon fibre allowing these products to be an excellent compromise between mechanical features and lightness. Less exasperated but equally practical, the N line offers standards, geometries and measurements of the S line.
Ribot was a gallop champion horse, one of the strongest and best known gallopers of all time. Such a successful horse gives its name to the MTB 29” front of the Torpado Impudent line with 100mm of travel.
The characteristics of Ribot are:
The experience of the Torpado Factory Team in competitions has allowed to identify standards, study and test geometries with solutions that are a part of the Ribot line.
The length of the chainstays of 435mm, combined with the steering angle of 70°, makes sure that the mountain bike has a compact wheelbase and is therefore extremely maneuverable and responsive. The rear brake, as required by the most modern standards, is a post mount in the chainstay (more rigid and lighter) for a 140mm disc.
The choice of the components and the features of the frame (tapered head, steering angle, length of chainstays) make the steering very accurate, but without being too nervous, therefore adapting both to racing and comfortable use.
In the Torpado range, the A identifies the products made of aluminium alloy 6061 with dedicated components.
The entrance line to the world of Torpado Impudent, these products have been designed with the same concept of the carbon line, therefore geometries, design and standards correspond, allowing to build a product with different characteristics but the same look.
