IDENTITI Persona frame:
Identiti are already trusted the World over in the 4X and Jump bike markets and have the knowledge and ability to produce performance hardtail frames and forks for this evolving market sector.
We've used some of the stuff we've learnt over the years to provide a strong but not excessively heavy frame that can handle today's progressive riding.
We've tweaked the classic fixie frame geometry to provide a little more space up front and a sloping top tube.to allow more room and manoeuvrability.
A downtube box gusset adds additional strength where it is needed most.
The Persona also features unique Taper-Lock CNC dropouts keep your chain tight without the need for chain tugs and is in keeping with the frames' minimalist clean looks.
With the Taperlock system, your wheel can never pull forwards under pedal torque.
What is "Taper Lock"
Put very simply, the dropouts have a 1.5 degree tapered thickness, and special washers also have a matching 1.5 degree taper to keep parallel faces.
Effectively, if the axle were to try to pull forwards.. the washer and the dropout act together to become thicker, so effectively tightening the axle nuts;- hence nothing slips forwards.
Available as a frame including seatclamp, Integrated headset and a sticker sheet that the rider can apply as they want (similar to the BMX and Dirt market trend).
