Eurobike 2011: Bionicon goes coil sprung, plus hyperextension explained

September 7, 2011

Roger from Bionicon shows us the new Alva 180, which like all the bikes in the Bionicon range, features on-the-fly fully adjustable travel and geometry.

Two models are available – the coil sprung Alva Coil 180 (a first for Bionicon) and the lighter weight Alva Air 180.
