CINTO

The Trailbike

The Trailbike. Engineered and manufactured in Germany.

“From the perspective of a design engineer with enduro and downhill racing experience, I can choose from a wide portfolio at LAST. The ASCO is the perfect complement to my enduro, because it is equally well suited for long adventures and the fast home trail lap. The ASCO with its progressive kinematics combines grip and feedback in a way that puts a big grin on my face every time.”

Hendrick Heitmann / LAST

ASCO - The Concept

The ASCO is our answer to the desire for a trail bike with less travel. The suspension concept and numerous good detail solutions have been adapted from our existing bikes and were modified so that the trail bike character clearly stands out. Between CELOS and CINTO, the ASCO has its own undeniable character, which is immediately revealed in the comparison. The ASCO is available in two layup variants: the Featherweight-layup always comes without a storage compartment and, thanks to a clever mix of fiber types, allows a weight starting from 1.79 kg. The Superduty- layup is optimized for maximum durability and always comes with a storage compartment. Both layups have proven themselves in extensive tests in the EFBE test laboratory and are approved by us for ASTM Category 4. The highly progressive suspension system of the ASCO provides a fine response and good mid travel support. The progression is so high that air shocks require only a few volume spacers and even coil shocks match very well. Who chooses the Superduty-layup can mount suspension forks up to 150 mm travel whereby the geometry becomes somewhat slacker. In the configurator, the personal dream bike or frameset can be selected from the numerous options. To ensure this service and the quality of the frames, we limit the ASCO to 100 units per year.

Geometry

With the ASCO, the focus is on the balance of the geometry for a good time on the bike. The riding position is sporty and at the same time comfortable for long adventures. The steering angle around 65.5 degrees is agile and sufficiently flat for maximum control in fast corners. The modern, size-specific seat angle positions the rider forward. For optimal stretch the top tube length and reach grow significantly towards the larger sizes. Suitable stem lengths are 35 to 50 mm and for taller riders up to 60 mm. To improve the agility of the bike and the balance between front and rear, the chainstays grow size-specific. The naming of the sizes corresponds to the typical rider size. Up- and downsizing according to personal preferences is possible due to the short seat tubes and the variety of available seatpost lengths. Individual finetuning is easily possible through the choice of stem length and the backsweep of the handlebars. When choosing the Superduty-layup forks up to 150 mm travel are allowed.

Suspension System

Progressive Suspension System

The ASCO transfers the highly progressive suspension layout of our allmountain and enduro bikes to a trail bike. The result is a fine response, good mid travel support and no bottom outs. With 34 % progression - calculated from the sag point - the ASCO sets new standards. With air shocks, the excessive use of volume spacers can thus be avoided. At the same time, the kinematics even allow the use of coil shocks. When using a shock with only 50 mm stroke, the suspension travel at the rear is reduced to 120 mm. The ASCO uses our proven Flexpivot, which replaces a heavy link near the dropout. The necessary movement is purely elastic and thus maintenance and friction free.
Anti Squat

Size-specific Anti-Squat

The anti-squat value describes the pedaling efficiency of a bike very well. In theory, 100 % correspond to a neutral characteristic. In practice, values above 100 % have proven to be optimal, since other influences besides inertial forces determine the overall impression. Too high anti-squat values lead to a noticeable stiffening of the suspension and reduce grip and comfort. To always achieve the optimum anti-squat, we adjust the position of the pivot points for each frame size. The blue graphs show the anti- squat values for the four frame sizes depending on the rear cog (x-axis). For comparison, the gray curves show the values for a non optimized system. It is easily recognizable that the blue lines are closer to each other, especially for low gears.
Anti Rise

Anti Rise

To be able to use the suspension travel of the ASCO while braking, the rear triangle must not stiffened due to braking. This behavior is described by the anti-rise value. Something below 100 % - a slight softening of the suspension - are optimal to maintain the grip. The size-specific optimization of the swingarm pivot point, which is decisive for the anti-squat, results in the practically congruent, blue-shaded curve for all frame sizes.

Features

Layup Options

Featherweight- and Superduty-layup differ in their fiber type composition. Featherweight-layup uses higher proportions of particularly stiff fibers, so that approx. 300 grams of weight are saved without losing stiffness. The Featherweight-layup always comes without a storage compartment and is limited to 100 kg rider weight. The Superduty-layup always comes with a storage compartment and is approved for riders up to 120 kg. When using a 150 mm suspension fork, the Superduty-layup is required. Both layups are approved for use according to ASTM Category 4.

Laminating of the carbon parts

Laminating of the carbon parts

In addition to the quality of fiber and matrix, the manufacturing quality is decisive for the lightweight construction potential. Only if the prepreg layers are well compacted, a load-bearing structure can be created. This requires craftsmanship and care as well as the masterful control of the manufacturing process itself. In the autoclave process the material undergoes strong compression due to the applied pressure. At the same time, a vacuum is created in the laminate to remove residual air. Careful process control using measurement data allows the quality of each individual component to be verified. Especially for the swingarm the monocoque design is very challenging in terms of the mold design and molding. The monocoque avoids structural weak points such as overlapping glued connections and thus saves weight.

Lightweight Construction and testing at EFBE

Our frames make good use of the directional properties of carbon composite material. Strength, stiffness and weight are in the best possible balance. The elasticity of the material enables an elastic and maintenance-free joint - the Flexpivot - which saves even more weight. In addition to practical testing, we rely on extensive bench testing and work together with EFBE Prüftechnik GmbH in Waltrop, just north of Dortmund. In addition to lightweight construction, function and safety are basic requirements for us. The frame is suitable for use in category 4 according to ASTM F-2043-13. In order to be able to use the entire bike in this category, suitable components must be specified. Excluded is racing use in enduro and downhill races. Permitted is the use in marathon and cross-country races.

LAST BIKES ASCO - Custom Painting

Custom Painting

At about 90 grams, Lars Diedenhofen‘s (70ID) paint jobs are very light and allow room to customize the frame. After the surface is only lightly sanded, the filler is applied. This is followed by the application of the paint layer, the decals and finally several layers of clear coat. In between, sanding is done several times, so that almost no transition to the logos can be noticed. Single color paints can be specified according to RAL and other color systems. Color codes of cars are also possible. More complex and multicolored paintings, as well as verification samples on tubes are possible after consultation.

Spare Parts

All parts that wear out and further spares are available from our stock. This includes downtube protectors, chainstay protectors, bolts and bearings. All bearings have dimensions according to popular standards. They can be sourced worldwide. The bearings distributed by us are full complement type and some are made of stainless steel. These bearings are made by Endurobearings and feature improved seals and use special grease. We provide spares for years to come, so that you can always refresh your frame. Thanks to local production we can even provide front triangles and swingarms long term. Which means in case you need our crash replacement program there are individual parts available and typically you don‘t need to replace the full frame.
CELOS - Spare Sparts
LAST BIKES ASCO - Crash replacement

Crash Replacement

With our crash replacement program we want to help with damage that is not covered by our 6 year product warranty. Crashes are part of our sport. Even a small mistake can set off a chain of unfortunate circumstances where, for example, someone crashes into a tree and the frame is irreparably damaged. In such cases, we give a discount on a new product or the necessary frame parts. Since we can stock or re-produce the individual parts of the frame, it is usually not necessary to replace the entire frame. The crash replacement program is valid for the first 3 years after purchase.

RESPONSIBILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

When selecting our partners and suppliers, we attach great importance to good conditions, both in terms of the environment and the conditions for employees. Therefore, we prefer suppliers from free democratic countries. In concrete terms, this means that the carbon fibers come from Japan. The processing into prepreg takes place in Italy. The frame is laminated in Germany. Milled parts come from Germany. Storage compartment bags are manufactured in Portugal. Colored frames are painted in Hagen at 70ID in Germany. Finally, all frames are assembled by us in Dortmund, tested and assembled to the complete bike if desired. We work 100 % with green electricity (Naturstrom). Packaging and protection materials and cardboard boxes are reused where possible.
