The Brits have some way of understating things. But there may be nothing understated concerning the Charge Cooker Midi 2 27.5″ mountain bike in terms of fun. This bike was once created to provide great performance at an excessively inexpensive price. A rugged and light-weight 6061 aluminum frame and Suntour fork, combined with Shimano components, create an ideal trail ride that is also relaxed on pavement.
The 6061 butted aluminum frame with tapered headtube balances lightness with optimal stiffness for hard accelerations and challenging trails. The SR Suntour Raidon LO-R 650b Plus fork features both rebound adjustment and lockout, which provides you with the solution to have a generous amount of shuttle over bumpy terrain, or to be completely locked out with the turn of a lever. That quickly the Midi 2 can go from trail-able mount to a more civilized pavement ride.
Frame and fork, after all, are just a part of the handling story. Wheels and tires are an important, too, and the Cooker Midi 2 is an absolutely different animal way to tubeless able tires and rims. Add sealant and the WTB Trailblazer 2.8″ tires seal beautifully to the WTB Scraper i45, tubeless able rims, a combination if you want to mean you can run pressures not up to you’ll have thought imaginable. This marriage of wide tire to wide rim offers exhilarating traction and more drift even as still keeping up the handling to carve things up.
Backing up this rugged foundation is a group of proven mountain components, anchored by the proven Shimano SLX. Power is driven to the rear wheel through an FSA Comet Megatooth, 30T crankset and an SRAM PG1020, 11-36T, 10-speed cassette. Braking duties, in a wide variety of conditions, are handled by Tektro HDC-330 Calipers with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors.
