The Tecnica sits at the top of a three bike model and if there's any doubt about it's intended purpose one only needs to look at the spec sheet. Featuring a 1x10 drivetrain, 130mm RockShox Revelation fork, wide handlebar, short stem and Arch EX wheels with 2.3 Maxxis Minion DHR II rubber fitted - this bike is meant to be fast and fun on single track.
What the spec sheet is missing at first glance is a dropper seatpost, but I do understand that base price can shoot up quickly with a couple of seemingly small changes. As an alternative a QR clamp would have been nice.
We will be riding the Signo Tecnica on several of Cape Town's trails to bring you an in-depth review.
The Signo Tecnica is a groundbreaking new platform that pushes the boundaries of modern trail riding. The key feature of the mountain bike model is the 279 Dynamic Efficiency Technology. The 279 concept incorporates the advantages of both 27.5” and 29” wheels into one platform; this is done by using the larger 29” wheel on the front and the midsized 27.5” wheel on rear the. The result is a uniquely new ride feel that fits perfectly into the aggressive trail-riding category.
