Klein mountain bikes have always been a showcase for innovation, and attention to detail.
If you believe that the little things in life can make a huge difference, you'll understand the philosophy and strategy at the Klein company.
The detail apparent in any Klein mountain bike, is the reason this name lives up to - and surpasses - all expectations.
The superior welds on a Klein mountain bike are a case in point. They have developed a proprietary welding process which results in smooth, void free welds. These not only look better than anything else on the market, but are also stronger.
Testing has proven that the welds have to endure most of the stress on a mountain bike frame. As a result, the welds on a Klein mountain bike, receive most of the attention! The goal is to get rid of the typical bumps and pits in normal welding.
Another area benefiting from the Klein eye for detail, is cable routing. The internal cable routing system, with "dimples" in strategic places, is said to improve the aerodynamics of the Klein mountain bike frame. This touch also helps to disperse stress on the frame through additional flexibility.
Gary Klein's experiments with aluminum frames started in 1973. Klein mountain bikes now sport a proprietary alloy with improved strength. This allows for thinner tube walls, and has lowered frame weight by 15 percent.
In fact, Klein holds eighteen patents on bicycle design improvements. This helps them to keep their rides are smoother and lighter than many a competitor!
Not the least of Klein's attention goes to the painting process. Craftspeople paint every Klein mountain bike its signature color by hand, and again with a lot of attention to detail. Even the graphics are embedded into the frame's finish!
If this sounds like the kind of quality and craftsmanship you should be looking into, there are a number of Klein mountain bikes to try out!
One example is the Klein Attitude XX hardtail, with Shimano components for confident shifting and braking. This bike, with immediate steering and precise handling, can successfully tackle almost any terrain. It's light, stiff, and strong ZR9000 aluminum frameset will help you retain positive control at all times. Bontrager wheels and tires will carry you over the roughest terrain.
Also take a look at the full-suspension Palomino XV. This Klein mountain bike is designed to maximize traction and power to the rear wheel, and to conquer just about any type of terrain you care to go for! For premier fork performance, you don't have to look further than the Fox F100 RLT. The Palomino features Bontrager Race disc tubeless wheels.
With a Klein mountain bike you will find that no detail has been left to chance. When you and your Klein tackle the trail, you may very well discover that the mountain has mysteriously turned into a mole hill...
