While things in the mountain biking seem to be constantly changing and evolving, something's really should stay the same and that's how we felt about the "LIFE". Bigger wheels may well roll faster over bumpy terrain but nothing handles quite like a 26" wheel through the single track. Carbon is for sure the lightest and stiffest material that is currently viable to build a bicycle out of, but nothing has the same ride quality of a high end chromoly frame. We could have gone for a tapered head tube but some how it didn't seem right, so in the end we made a few geometry tweaks and left the rest alone!
Designed and developed in the UK and built using the best tubing in the world the UK's Reynolds 853. Our top model the "LIFE" was developed to meet the needs of the enthusiast to pro level rider who appreciates the subtle ride qualities that Cro-mo has to offer. Quality and attention to detail are Sanderson’s main focus and our flag ship Model "LIFE" has it in bundles. Whether your day riding for fun or soloing a 24 hour event this is the tool for the job.
