The New Olympia Blast

26er Cross Country News

Olympia introduces Blast, the full suspended dedicated to the XC competition.

A model that sits on the top of Olympia full suspended mtb range.

Dedicated to the XC competition, the Blast is characterized by an unidirectional UD carbon fiber monocoque frame. The aesthetic look of the tubes is new and features gear and derailleur cableways inside the obliquetube. Special care was taken in the realization of the nuts and bolts for the joints, which were all turned and lightened.

The frame structure was realized working on thickness: reduced in the points subject to less stress and oversized where the bike produces higher efforts. Thanks to the calibration of the carbon fiber fabric, the design requisites, which aimed at lightness, were successfully obtained: the Blast frame has an average weight of only 1.900 grams!

Assembled with RockShox Ario RL with lockout, Blast features a rear excursion of 100mm.
