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.

Ideal for marathon and all-day cross-country riders, the 2012 Look Cycle 920 Full Suspension Marathon Bike gets 120mm of front and rear travel that offers versatility. Lighter than 100mm of travel, 120mm is the modern reference for cross-country.
