Corsair bikes Resurrected

After a short sabbatical, Corsair bikes are returning to the UK this summer, and as well as having an already great selection of bikes, have a brand new 160mm bike called the Revo.

We caught up with Scott Burris of Resurrection Cycle Products  – Corsair Bikes UK – who gave us the low down on the new Revo platform…

Atomlab 1

Resurrection will be bringing three sizes of frame in – medium as shown; large and extra large. The XL features a healthy 1203mm wheelbase, 66degree head angle and a generous 616mm actual/648mm effective top tube – we’re pretty excited about that as there is still a lack of roomy size XL bikes.

Although the bike Scott showed us was pre-production and had a couple of minor refinements. Production bikes are due within the next 5 weeks and will be in the black/blue colourway

Resurrection Cycle Products will be offering the Revo initially as a frame only, and rather than coming with the base model Rockshox Monarch shock, they will be offering the frame with the excellent Rockshox Monarch Plus Debon Air RC3 with a mid/mid tune, that will perfectly suit the 2.2/2.3:1 leverage ratio of the frame. The Revo will retail for approx £1699 with the mentioned shock.

Atomlab 8

A low and slightly forward single pivot sits well under the 34 tooth chainring on here, although this pre-production frame didn’t have room for a bigger chain ring. Production models will have a slightly different chainstay configuration to remedy this, and also to allow for a double set-up with front mech mounting. All the pivots use heavy duty sealed cartridge bearings and we could feel no noticeable flex on this sample.

Atomlab 3

The Revo features seriously well made hard ware – the single piece linkage is CNC machined and accommodates high quality sealed bearings. Resurrection Cycle Products will be carrying full stock of bearings, pivot bolts etc for most past, and all present bikes – making them the place of contact for Europe as well as the UK – and they are aiming to offer full customer support.

Atomlab 9

A chunky direct mount for 180mm rotors suits the bikes capability, and the no-nonsense 142x12mm rear end keeps things stiff and secure.

Atomlab 2

Our was dripping with Atomlab components – including the super thin DHR pedal. Resurrection Cycle Products will be bringing Atomlab in the the UK market and have some exciting products in the pipeline for 2016

Atomlab 10

Tubeless compatible 30mm wide SL Trail rims have a 25mm internal width, and are available as rims or wheels in 650b and 26in versions. Complete wheels come laced up on the Pimplite hubs.

Atomlab 5

If colour co-ordination is your thing, the combination of Atomlab and Corsair work well together. You could be subtle, or go to town like Scott has on his own bike!

Atomlab

Atomlab and Corsair are pretty close companies that have similar design principles – and Resurrection Cycle Products are also going to be bringing in the full Atomlab range which has been brought back up to date.

In particular, we were interested in the rear hubs, which feature an amazing 102point pick up which is so close that the freehub doesn’t even click – these things whirr!

Atomlab 13

Atomlab Pimplite rear hub, compatible with SRAM 11 speed (as shown) or Shimano and adaptable to suit different rear axle configurations. It also features a huge 102point engagement for a virtually instant pick up. This will be hugely popular with Trials and urban riders, as well as 4X riders.

Atomlab 12

Atomlab also have a 7speed DH rear hub, with the same 102point pick up and a wide spacing between the flanges.

Atomlab 17

This is the DHR pedal from the side view. All 25mm and 22pins worth…


 

As you read this, the Resurrection Cycle Products home page is being re-built, but will be open soon and will have full details of availability.

We’ll have a frame on test at the first opportunity and will keep you posted with further developments – but in the mean time you can get more information by e-mailing info@resurrectioncycles.co.uk
