Bombtrack CALE is a new hardtail trail mountain bike launched by Bombtrack in Cologne, based on their Beyond+ range.
Also inspired by all those individual builds that are popping up on social media using a suspension fork, Bombtrack say that they took it further and created the CALE.
A contemporary trail geometry featuring a long reach and moderate stack mean the Bombtrack CALE is easy on the long-haul, yet fun when the terrain kicks off. Triple cage mounts plus the ability to fit a rear rack mean it’s possible to ride into remote locations, drop the bags, and have some fun exploring new trails.
This, they say, means the Bombtrack CALE is a vehicle for exploring the most technical routes
An MRP Ribbon suspension fork stops the bike getting thrown about to increase control, a quality furthered by its huge 800mm wide bars.
With the ability to slam the saddle out of the way courtesy of the KS E30i dropper seatpost, ultra-wide WTB Vigilante TCS tyres and a mountain-shrinking 10-50t cassette make this “all the bike most riders will ever need”.
