Revolutionary news from Monty.

August 31, 2011

We have some great news from Monty with some extraordinary break through in the BikeTrial Cycling industry. Finally, we will see carbon fibre being use as a material for BikeTrial Bikes. Only from Monty and production will be for the 2013 M5 model. Here’s some details from the Monty web site.

Once again, Monty Bicycles is revolutioning Biketrial community introducing the new and exclusive Monty M5. This bike is a revolution in the world of the Biketrial bikes and breaks with all established so far, in terms of materials, shapes and geometries. With the new Monty M5 will have spared no effort and has been up to the last consequences the technology got in more than 25 years in the design and development of Biketrial bikes.

The new M5 is entirely made in Carbon Fiber. It is the first bike in the market manufactured entirely in this material, which means a revolution in this sector. One of the technological innovations we’ve added to the new M5 is the integration of the chain throughout the frame, making it pass through the interior of the frame.

In addition, Monty M5 incorporates protectors completely integrated with the frame, to avoid hitting the frame in points more exposed to the demand of riders. Includes many improvements over its predecessor, which makes it the most advanced Biketrial bike in the world. Its release is scheduled in the spring of 2012, being the Biketrial star of Monty 2013 Biketrial bikes range.

Main features are:

Frame: Monty. Monocoque UD carbon ber.

Fork: Monty UD Carbon ber, carbon crown/steerer, 100mm

Headset: FIRST 1-1/8” , Aluminium cups

Stem: Monty. Aluminium 6061-T4. 28.6mm, barbore 31.8mm

Handlebar: Monty UD Carbon Fiber, 31.8x720mm

BB: FIRST, Titanium, assimetric shape, 1.37x24T

Cranks: Monty. 158mm, Aluminium 7075-T6. Ultra light

Freewheel: Monty. Front: 18T 9 pawls, titanium

Track Hog: Rear:12T track cog, titanium

Brakes: Monty-Hope, Trial Zone, 160mm

Rims: Aluminium 6061-T4. Front 28H, Rear 32H

Tires: Monty Eagle Claw. New shape. Ultra light

Most of the Monty M5 parts have been redesigned. Moreover of frame, fork and handlebar carbon set, we must add the redesign and improvement of parts as: cranks, bottom bracket, brakes, tires, front and rear sprocket, tyres, pedals, front and rear hubs, etc. Everything is new in the Monty M5! This whole set of new pieces, and the effort to provide a revolutionary bicycle, “leit-motiv” of Monty Bicycles, has permitted us to get an incredible final weight of :

6,795 kilograms !

The new Monty M5 Biketrial bike introduces a new concept in the Biketrial bike. Our compromise to be leader in the manufacturation of Biketrial bikes, has drived us to the M5, a revolutionary bike.
