All Mountain Supreme 5 aluminium frame

Our OVV AM 8.6 frame in Supreme 5 aluminium retains rear clearance of 160 mm, 29”/27.5” differentiated wheels and the perfectly integrated fourth-generation Bosch drive unit. But it has been updated with a new rear triangle integrating the speed sensor and a new UDH (universal derailleur hanger).

Fox Float Factory DPX2 Suspension

Fox Float Factory DPX2 Suspension

To optimise the suspension efficiency and output of our OVV AM 8.6, we opted for the Fox Float Factory DPX2 shock absorber for its dual piston system and multiple compression adjustment points. The rigidity and adjustment accuracy of the Fox 38 Float Factory 29” fork creates a coherent, efficient assembly.

Shimano XT four-piston brakes

Shimano XT four-piston brakes

For our top-of-the-range model, we have opted for the Shimano XT brakes with their four-piston toe pieces and 203 mm discs. Here, power meets an exceptional touch and ideal progressiveness to modulate your braking.

Performance upgrade and new features

Performance upgrade and new features

A riding experience that sets the benchmark: From model year 2021, the Performance Line CX ensures even more riding enjoyment on the trail - with further developed software and a maximum torque of 85 Nm. The increased torque ensures greater performance, supporting you with even more power, especially in low cadences. In eMTB and Turbo mode, this leads to significantly faster acceleration and makes hill starts much easier. Thanks to a broader cadence range, unpredictable riding situations can be mastered even more effectively - for example in the case of late gear shifting or accelerating out of tight corners. Riding remains smooth and free from jolts, even when out of the saddle or in Turbo mode.

Next-level eMTB mode

Next-level eMTB mode

The progressive riding mode for every occasion: Advanced eMTB mode ensures eMountain bikers are well-prepared for whatever riding situation the trail may have in store. New sensor and motor control functions give eMountain bikers a much wider range of dynamic and natural support. Riders continue to benefit from the proven technology of eMTB mode: Depending on pedal pressure, progressive motor support adapts perfectly to the riding situation. The improved adjustment of eMTB mode ensures optimum traction control in all gears and enables organic handling (AKA 'power on demand'). Start-up behaviour is much finer and more sensitive - especially in low gears. Due to the increased torque, the drive unit supports an even wider cadence range.

Extended Boost

Extended Boost

Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones on the trail with ease, even uphill. The eMTB can be maneuvered with much greater agility and ease on technical sections. The unique dynamism means that obstacles can be overcome with ease by applying the right amount of pressure to the pedal. The pedals rarely, if ever, jam. The new, innovative function in eMTB mode can be controlled to optimum effect in all riding situations. If the front wheel is already on the step, a slight pedal pressure is all it takes to give the decisive "kick". This takes pedal management to a whole new level.
