sourcing its influence from the new mercedes-AMG GT automobile, the ROTWILD ‘GT S’ mountain bike has been developed for the toughest off-road conditions. with professional feedback from top athletes in the AMG ROTWILD MTB racing team, the bicycle combines the very best of four and two wheels, delivering dynamism, lightweight construction, design and comfort. its expressive form, painted in a distinctive contrast of solarbeam and carbon black, illustrates pure sportiness and dedication. with electronic gear-shifting, its shimano ‘XTR’ drive technology provides multi-shift functions, allowing several gears to be shifted in sequence. this showcases its performance capabilities, ensuring efficient power transfer, short operating movements and reliable, fast and smooth gearshifts.

limited to just 100 models, the ROTWILD ‘GT S’ mountain bike fuses ultra high-performance materials and a sophisticated suspension system, along with its unique design form. made from a carbon module monocoque and enhancing EPS innermold technology, the lightweight frame provides both the optimum rigidity and ideal damping characteristics. furthermore, the formula 33 factory front fork, as well as the 29-inch carbon-fiber wheels, helps contribute to a consistent riding comfort that enables adjustable compression and rebound. the hand-built bicycles will enter the market in may 2015, at the same time as the mercedes-AMG GT car, for the price of €9990.
