Forestal Siryon Neon - A Mountain Bike Only Better!
For decades now the cycling industry has given bikes labels to attempt to identify their use and what they are designed for. Downhill bikes, well that's simple. Cross Country is also self-explanatory, but when we start talking about 'Enduro' the lines begin to blur. Weighing from as little as 17.2kg is unheard of in the eMTB market, and in fact, many other 'lightweight XC' electric mountain bikes weigh considerably more yet offer less travel. With its 29" wheels and 170mm of suspension travel pins the Siryon firmly down into the long-established 'Enduro' segment but the reactive Alpha Box chassis and tuned Twin Levity kinematics ensure a bike with more agility than those impressive numbers might suggest. Fast off the mark, spritely on the track, downhill travel in the rough, but trail bike readiness and split-second manoeuvrability.
Neon - Versatile Build Kit, High-Quality Frameset
The Neon line is the perfect midpoint between the Diode and Halo lines, featuring the same high-quality frameset but with a bulletproof mechanical drivetrain. The Neon line comes with Rockshox Ultimate level suspension, XO1 Eagle Drivetrain, Crank Brothers Highline dropper post, Magura MT7 brakes, and Crank Brothers Synthesis Carbon wheels. This build gives you the perfect combination of mechanical reliability and performance.
Unique And Unmistakable Design
The clean lines featured across the line combined with the unique next level engineering help build the unique and unmistakable Forestal signature design. A design that is apparent everywhere on the bike from the suspension linkage to the paint job.
The Alpha Box frame technology seen right across the Forestal range is optimized for not only weight, but also comfort, rigidity, and style. The frame comes in at a staggeringly low 2.2kg without motor and hardware. This is achieved using a blend of carbon fibres to achieve the ideal weight to stiffness ratio at every point on the frame.
Twin Levity Linkage
Forestal’s patented Twin Levity linkage helps combine the simplicity of a single pivot system with the tuned kinematics of a linkage system. The result is a ground-breaking and lightweight design that allows for a smooth and supple suspension feel without sacrificing speed or feel. The twin levity linkage is optimised for every riding discipline, and this is no different on the Cyon which has been tuned to strike a perfect balance between pedalling efficiency and downhill performance.
Forestal have designed their electric pedal-assist system from the ground up focussing on maintaining a lightweight and compact package. The result is the Active Flow system featuring the unique EonDrive motor and Aurora battery. With Active Flow, the most challenging trails have become the natural habitat of Forestal’s bikes.
To achieve an unparalleled level of integration Forestal had to develop the EonDrive alongside their Alpha Box framesets. The motor assembly tips the scales at just 1.95kg making it the most lightweight and compact performance motor available today. Paired with 250W and 60Nm the EonDrive motor has the torque to help you maintain your trail flow without feeling like you’re being slowed down by the extra weight. Forestal have also done everything they can to create a familiar feeling bike and have achieved this with a narrow Q-factor, just 170mm, and a standardised chainring mount which allows you to change out parts like a standard bike. When disengaged the EonDrive motor brings zero friction to the transmission allowing for resistance free pedalling.
As with all other parts on their framesets Forestal have designed the Aurora battery from the ground up. The result is a 360Wh battery that weighs just 1.8kg. The battery is completely contained within the frame and is invisible from the outside. Featuring a rapid charge technology, the battery is able to be charged to 80% in just 84 minutes. The battery is also expandable to 610Wh through the addition of the Aurora range extender which fits to the bottle cage and adds 250Wh to the system.
With every bike featuring a dedicated display, a custom app, and the smart remote Forestal’s attitude towards integration is obvious in all aspects of their bikes.
Mounted inside the frames top tube you will find the Forestal Smart Dashboard. The ultimate partner to your eBike the dashboard provides you with a world of information right at your fingertips. The dashboard is also able to connect to your smart device where you are able to find even further detailed information. The dashboard has a low energy consumption design and features a high definition, all conditions, touch screen. The unit is also water, scratch, and impact resistant meaning it can handle the most intense rides. With over 15 features from mapping and navigation to battery status and assist control to stats and ride recording there is no limit to what you can do with the Smart Dashboard.
Rather than over complicating the controls for the motor Forestal have created a minimalistic trigger remote. You can easily swap between the four assist modes supported by the EonDrive motor: Eco, Sport, Race, and Nitro.
Link To The Forestal App
The Forestal app is the perfect companion to the Smart Dashboard during and after your ride. The app allows you to connect your smart device to your Forestal bike and gives you further insights into the data, stats, and tools available on the Dashboard. The app also allows for unique features such as Geolocation, Anti-theft, and Strava connection as well as important info like FAQs and Manuals.
