The Alpine 6 replaces the much loved Alpine 160 in their range. This new frame is the Alpine 160 re-engineered and they’ve revamped every aspect of the bike's performance.

The Alpine 6 is designed around 170mm front/160mm rear travel. They’ve slackened the head angle half a degree to keep the same alpine handling feel they love, yet make the most of the fork’s extra 10mm.

The compact rear end they debuted on the Four model makes its way to the Alpine 6, shortening the chainstay significantly by 9mm. The repositioned pivot also means that the whole rear triangle is more compact and more active. With the shock now effectively lowered in the chassis, the ramp-up effect is improved, and feedback from test riders has been nothing but positive. With even less flex in the rear, it's more active over small bumps and inspires confidence over the really rough stuff.
