Cycling has finally started to gain popularity. And it's not just that. After all, people increasingly want to retire with themselves, to visit nature or even go on a trip. But there are people who need extreme. For them adrenaline is like a drug. They are fans of driving on steep mountain descents, jumping from trampolines and the like. Here we need other bicycles: more reliable and sturdy. One such is Stels Adrenalin. Let's consider it in more detail.
What is Stels Adrenalin?
"Adrenaline" - this is another model from the company "Stealth". It belongs to the type of two-pendants. They are also called fulas in another way, which means "full" in translation. This is because both wheels are damped. This is their difference from hardtails. There only the front wheel is damped, and the fuls also have a rear shock absorber. This design is specially designed for heavy ambient conditions in which a bicycle will be located.
On these bikes, mostly go on rough terrain: hummocks, forests and mountains. In general, on uneven terrain. To the fifth point of the owner did not die at all from such shaking, it was thought up to install an additional shock absorber, which significantly reduces the level of vibration and increases comfort.
Where you can ride on "Adrenaline"
There is also a downside to the coin. Due to the fact that the double suspension has a rear shock absorber, it has become very heavy. Therefore Stels Adrenalin weighs almost twenty kilograms. Therefore, it is worth buying only for walks in the forest or cross-country (driving through mud, uneven terrain with natural obstacles), for driving around the city, it is better to choose something easier.
Characteristics of "Adrenaline"
Stels Adrenalin was developed for adults, but it can be traveled even by children and adolescents. The fact is that the frame he has only twenty inches. It refers to a mountain type. Hence this powerful and strong frame. In this model, the frame is made of aluminum alloy. For example, in "Navigator" it is made of steel. Aluminum is much lighter, but yields a bit in strength. It also does not undergo corrosion.
The design of the plug is spring-elastomeric. However, the most ordinary. The power reserve of the front fork is eighty millimeters, which is an average result (for expensive bicycles this value can reach two hundred millimeters).
Let's move on to the wheels. On the bike Stels Adrenalin set standard for mountain bikes twenty-six inch wheels. The rim (by the way, also made of aluminum) is from the "Weinmann". This is a common company, whose products like to put on many bicycles. Not only is the rim aluminum, it is also double, which greatly increases its service life. Tires are the most usual, they should be replaced later with better ones. And then these are erased immediately.
On the "Adrenaline" put disc brakes. Of course, they are better and more effective than their brethren. Brakes of the company Tektro Novela. Apparently, some of the cheapest, for the quality of which you can not vouch. It's clear that this is not a hydraulics, but a mechanic, but still better than conventional rims. The diameter of the rotor is one hundred and sixty centimeters. Rotor - this is the brake disc, which rubs rubber pads.
A bit about the Stealth Adrenaline driveline. In general, the transmission is one of the most important knots in the bike. Without it, you will not go anywhere. Minor malfunctions on the road can lead to serious problems. Total speed on this bike is twenty-four. This means that he has three asterisks in front, and eight behind. Such a variety allows you to adapt to any terrain conditions. Switches are of the "Shimano" type, the cheapest type. Also included are wings. But the bike is so heavy, so it's better to take them off.
Stels Adrenalin: reviews
About the reviews need to say at once: they are not just not comforting, but terrible. Stels Adrenalin, whose price is about ten thousand rubles, attracts people only with its value. In fact, it's just a cheap bike. The equipment is the cheapest one can find. Because of the rear shock absorber, riding on the asphalt becomes simply impossible: a lot of energy is spent on swinging up and down. So you need to constantly pedal, but still the speed will be turtle. Because of the heavy weight and loads, the cyclist gets tired pretty quickly. Normal dvuhpovesvesy cost from one thousand dollars. All that is cheaper is a pitiful semblance of ful.
