The Ricochet

 Example Model: T160 Comp

T160 Comp

 

The Ricochet Range is Thrills leading dual suspension bike.

There are a number of variants in the range and they are all based on the same frame geometry. The range changes in front fork length and other high to lower component specification.

The model has a a hydro-formed aluminium frame - you have probably seen this written in other bike descriptions. The frame pieces come from specific made dies for each piece and they are formed under pressure in the die. This gives the frame a  greater strength through less welds meaning less places for the frame to fail. Many modern mountain bike frames are formed in this way. 

At the moment the higher specification bikes are rare to source, but we are trying.

I am currently riding the T120 AL 1.0 and it has been an awesome packet of fun. I have another young rider on the T120 AL Elite and equally he is enjoying the ride.

The BIG plus we both commented on was the weight of the bike, the ease with which it climbs (for a 27.5 inch) after both riding 29ners. The suspension and brakes really work well and compliment the bike making it feel stable and dynamic all in the one moment. The shorter wheel base together with the bike weight is a recipe for an agile bike that is sure to make you smile (yeeewwww)!
