Pro Tharsis

by Sim 10

Pure, untouched press release from Shimano Europe…
Introduction PRO Tharsis Trail components
A component-series named after the highest mountain-range in the universe (on Mars) must be very special. And that’s exactly what PRO Tharsis is. With this new line of components you will excel in day-consuming journeys up and down mountains. PRO Tharsis is unique because it’s the first hi-end line-up of Trail components made entirely out of carbon. By using special lay-up designs and fiber-types our engineers succeeded in developing extremely strong, durable and lightweight components. These unique components are topped-off with a trendy mat and nude UD carbon structure with a refined artwork and polished alloy details.

  1. as the words “high end” have been used have we a price on theses jewels

  2. that’s an ugly fecker of a stem

  3. what, the whole Universe?

  4. It certainly is sssimon

  5. “made entirely out of carbon” apart from the polished alloy, titanium inserts etc…

  6. That “highest mountain-range in the universe (on Mars)” really is grating the pedant in me!

  7. So, pedantry aside, are these actually made by Shimano?

  8. No prices as yet but when we know they’ll get added to the story.
    Pro is owned by Shimano.

  9. Rumour has it the bikes for next week’s XTR M980 press camp in Austria will be equipped with the new Pro Tharsis range… I guess it won’t be too long for a ride verdict.

  10. Pro Tharsis sounds like some sort of aggravated knee ligament injury
