Based on the design of the original and highly successful Fourplay frame, the 2011 Inspired Element has great attention to detail and benefits from the same level of quality and toughness.
The front of the frame features an externally butted headtube, with strength improved further by using external top and downtube gussets as found on the original Fourplay. To increase strength, stiffness and tyre clearance, the Element uses a one-piece bottom bracket and chainstay yoke. An internal pocket helps to reduce weight while maintaining the associated performance benefits.
The rear of the frame features exclusive-design seat and chainstay tubing that improve both crank and heel clearance. Dedicated V-brake mounts have been positioned to allow normal V-brakes to work perfectly with street rims. The forged dropouts have proven to be very reliable and fit the popular Fourplay style hanger.
