Eurobike 2015: DMR

by 2

DMR had a couple of new things to show: A new grip designed with DMR rider Brendog, and the relaunched DMR Trailstar.

Originally hailing from 1996, the first Trailstar was among the very first hardcore hardtails, built for strength and aggressive riding. After a break, they’ve brought it back for 2016, all updated-like.

It looks pretty slender. We spy stealth dropper routing too.
P1030760
Gusseted and kinked, with seatmast.
P1030761
It’s a unique looking steel frame.

P1030763
Seems to have plenty of clearance.
P1030766
Tapered head tube. It’s interesting to see DMR and Haro both departing from the 44mm standard.

The gusset probably helps the taper of the head tube blend in with the skinny steel tubing.
P1040290
I couldn’t think of a single seatmast pun.

ISCG 05 tabs
P1040300
Decidedly beefy dropouts.
P1040301
A range of the new DMR Death Grips.
P1040304
The inside of the grips tapers to provide quite a good lock without any other retention, and a single lock on clamp goes behind the flange.
P1040305
Also available in two widths.

DMR had by far the prettiest pedal display.

    that trailstar is utterly awful. youve ruined it DMR

    trailstars should only ever be a simple double diamond frame made out of nice, strong, heavy, steel.

    not this gopping monstrosity that looks like it has fallen out of the ugly tree.. hit every branch on the way down.. then climbed back up said tree.. and flung itself off again a second time for good measure.

    i like the look of the death grips though.. 🙂
