A new top-end race-ready carbon hardtail bike called 986 has been released by Look Cycle for 2012. By using an integrated A-stem, the bike allows the handlebars to be slammed as low as cross-country racers normally choose.
With a new geometry that matches 100mm forks, this new hardtail bike is available in two models, which are regular or standard seat post with a 1300g frame and integrated E-Post with a 1200g frame. The E-post model reduces the weight while increasing the stiffness.
Also available is a standard RSP version that has anintegrated seat mast using a Syntace Carbon Hi-flex post. With a BB30 bottom bracket, the 2012 Look Cycle 986 Race-Ready Carbon Hardtail guarantees the riders that during racing, their power will not be wasted.
