    Additional Information about Kinesis Maxlite FF29 2014 Frameset Green

    A UK designed 29" wheel trail frame that offers rock solid performance and razor sharp handling whilst giving a smooth rolling ride thanks to 29" wheel compatibility. Gloss green colour option.

    Kinesis UK frame designer Dom wanted to make a 29er that worked for more ‘aggressive’ trail riding.Super light weight or riding for hours round a circuit weren’t high on the tick list when I started thinking about a 29” frame worthy of the Maxlight name. Quick handling, fast trail prowess and big grins were firmly at the top.

    Warp-speed, flowing singletrack, tempo pace climbs and fast dips and crests are where the Maxlight frames excel, the FF29 has been developed for those same situations. 29er’s are capable of steamrollering the trails and go rather fast over the bumpy downhill stuff, so adding a dollop of legendary Maxlight handling into the mix produces a TRAIL DESTROYER!

    The FF29 uses specially developed ‘SPF’ [Superplastic Formed] top and down tubes, giving a lightweight and stiff front end with huge weld area at the Head Tube and BB. Short taper 1.5” head tubes keep the stack height low, so you can get over the front for powerful climbing.

    A 34.9mm diameter seat tube is stiffer and more compatible with dropper posts which are ideal for this style of trail bike, it’s subtly curved lower section gives greater mech and tyre clearance. A 60mm BB drop and compact rear centre mean stable, fast cornering.

    ‘Supertaper’ seat and chain stays give great response and specially developed SPF bridges and 73mm BB shell allow up to a 2.2” tyre, The forged rear dropouts use post-mount for the disc caliper for a variety of disc brake options.

    SPECIFICATION

    SEAT POST: 31.6mm.
    SEAT CLAMP: 34.9mm.
    FRONT MECH: 34.9mm.
    BOTTOM BRACKET: 73mm wide with standard British thread
    REAR HANGER: Kinesis Hanger No 7
    HEADSET: Integrated style, 41.8ø upper, 51.8ø lower, for tapered head tube. Recommended headset: FSA No.42/ACB. Both bearings are 'ACB', meaning 'Angular Contact Bearings'. The head-tube seat angle is 45º.The headset drops into a tapered seat in the head tube and is tensioned using a headset tensioner within the fork steerer. Tensioning the headset centers it on the taper and prevents any play.

    FORK RECOMMENDATION: 100mm - 120mm travel. If you prefer a rigid lightweight fork option the FF29 Carbon Fork is also available

    SPF TUBE SHAPING: The FF29 uses Kinesis developed 'SuperPlastic Formed' tubing technology for it’s top tube, down tube and specially developed chainstay/seatstay bridges. SPF is similar to ‘Hydroforming’, but uses far higher temps. to produce complicated shapes in thinner wall tubing than was possible with Hydroforming. The result is lighter weight tubing that can be formed to make the frame perform exactly as we require.

    KINESIUM TUBING MATERIAL: Developed by Kinesis International, Kinesium is a superb tubing for use in lightweight, high performance frames. Kinesium is enhanced 6000 series Aluminium alloy, which is 25% stronger than 6061 at the same weight level. Kinesium’s properties make it an ideal material for a very light, tough, responsive frame at an affordable price. Superior properties over other alloys, allow for a much thinner wall dimension, thereby dramatically reducing overall frame weight without compromising strength.

    SUPERTAPER PROFILING: ‘Supertaper’ stays give great response and specially developed SPF bridges allow up to a 2.2” tyre, the forged dropouts use post-mount for the disc caliper.

    TAPER HEAD TUBE: The 1.5" lower bearing allows a tapered fork steerer and larger crown. This gives sharper response and helps reduce flex under braking. Increased heat tube diameter gives more weld area at the most highly stressed point.

    WHAT DO WE THINK?

    This is an ideal frame for someone wanting to convert to 29" wheel riiding, as it is great value, durable and feels super planted and agile, thanks in no small part to the subtle shapng of the seat tube to allow the chainstays to be run shorter than other 29'er models on the market.

    This is for the frame only, here at Bliss Bikes we can also custom build your FF29 to any specification you require, and we really rate the FF29 Carbon Fork for a minimalist, light weight point-and-shoot set-up.

    “In short: we loved it”.

    ”Overall: So, so much fun; like a BMX for grownups. Buy one if you like riding with a stupid grin on your face at all times”.
