The Challenge: How do we endeavour to update a bike whose legion of fans don't want us to change anything?
The answer? Like everything we do, is with great care, passion and a stack of test feedback.
The new Alpine 6 Pro has been through possibly the most extensive prototyping programs we've ever undertaken – the result is truly spectacular.
With the introduction of the 230mm metric shock, we have revised the suspension layout to increase the rear travel. We've also tuned the frame to be more progressive to retain a bottomless feel and provide increased smoothness over small bumps, flirting with that fine line that keeps wallow at bay and gives the Alpine 6 Pro all the control it needs.
We've also thrown geometry under the microscope and refined it to match the new suspension performance, resulting in superb agility, stability and confident speed.
When you are lucky enough to come upon one of those unholy beasts of a trail, the Alpine 6 Factory is the bike to take it on with everything you've got and tame it.
