CINTO

All mountain
Excellence

All Mountain Excellence. Engineered and manufactured in Germany.

“The CINTO provides precise feedback and has lots of pop for playful and active riding. The suspension is nicely progressive, pedals very well and neutral under braking. It’s versatility and nimbleness is inspiring every time.”

Jörg Heydt / LAST

CINTO - The Concept

The CINTO is designed to be an All Mountain Bike - the category of bike for every day and all opportunities. The requirements for such a bike are manifold and it is difficult to avoid compromises. With the CINTO we have developed a bike that offers solutions: Perfect function and performance, low weight and the toughness to back you up. Designed by our team with a passion for good geometries and precise handling. To have fun on the long term and to be capable in rough terrain, the CINTO isn't reduced to lightweight, but reflects all aspects that make it a LAST. The suspension is highly efficient and comes along with a geometry that suits our riding style: fast, agile and airborne. That's why we build a reliable bike that takes you to the trail and not to the workshop. With the TARVO - the lightest enduro frame - the potential of the frame concept has been proven and showed that our production technology and the materials blend into an exceptionally capable bike. This concept is the base for the CINTO. We put quality first and limit the CINTO to 100 pieces annually - hand made in Germany.

Geometry

A good time on the trail, independent of the gradient, and efficient climbing were the focus during the geometry development. The 65 degree head angle and the balanced ratio of reach to chainstay length result in confident cornering. The modern-steep seat angle of 77 degrees provides a comfortable and efficient climbing position. For the CINTO we provide growing chainstay lengths that start at short 431 mm for 165 and increase up to 443 mm for size 195. The short seat tube length and the straight seat tube allow riders to size up or down, depending on their preference. To provide a start point for sizing we named the sizes according to the typical rider height: 165. 175, 185 and 195. The matching stem lengths range from 35 mm up to 60 mm.

Suspension System

Progressive Suspension System

The CINTO provides a sporty-progressive suspension system with a minimum of rockers and bearings. Our philosophy is to generate mid travel resistance with a progression in the leverage ratio and without too many volume spacers or excessive damping. From SAG point to bottom out the CINTO provides 29% of smooth progression which makes it suitable for air and coil shocks alike.
Anti Squat

Size-specific Anti-Squat

Pedalling efficiency is generated to a large extent by a well-fitting anti-squat value. The value depends on the kinematics of the bike and the height of the rider’s centre of gravity. To always achieve the optimum anti-squat, we adjust the position of the pivot points for each frame size and the expected height of the centre of gravity. The blue graphs show the anti-squat values for the four frame sizes depending on the rear cog (x-axis). For comparison, the grey 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

The anti rise value determines how the suspension behaves under braking. A value around 100 % is considered to be the optimum, since the suspension behaves neutrally at this figure. This means that the application of the brake has no disturbing influence on the suspension system. The size specific optimization results in four almost identical blue curves, that appear as one thick blue curve in the diagram.

Features

Functional Lightweight

The CINTO takes advantage of an optimized layup using the directional strength of the carbon fibres to their full extent, combining strength and stiffness. Furthermore the material properties make a flex pivot possible. The true potential of the material is maximized by the careful draping of the plies on the surface of the mould. Front and rear triangle are laminated in a seamless piece - the monocoque - a consistent laminate structure without any weak points.
Functional Lightweight
Laminating of the carbon parts

Laminating of the carbon parts

In addition to the quality of fibre and matrix, the manufacturing quality is decisive for the lightweight construction potential. Only if the prepreg layers are optimally pressed together, 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 at All Ahead Composites 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. The high processing quality makes it possible to reduce the amount of material to the required minimum.

CNC machining to perfection

The seat stays of the CINTO don‘t feature a yoke. The gained space makes the short chainstays (of the smaller frame sizes) and the steep seat angles possible. To stiffen up the rear the rocker arm is machined from a single billet of aluminum. All six bearing seats are machined in one clamping process to quarante precision and parallel axes. The rockers and storage compartment covers are manufactured at Debus Frästechnik.

Manufacturing of the storage cover

Manufacturing of the storage cover

The storage cover nestles exactly with the down tube shape. Each frame size has a specific cover. CNC cutting from high strength aluminum is therefore the best manufacturing process for this part. The aluminum part of the cover weighs in at 43 g - just a little more compared to the section that is cut out. The closure is magnetic. A thin layer of protective material is glued to the cover for frame protection.

Partnership with EFBE

The used carbon fibres are strong and have a high elongation capability to deal well with extreme loads. The CINTO uses the same modular platform like our enduro bike TARVO. We work closely with EFBE Prüftechnik and approve the CINTO for use according to ASTM F2043-13 category 5, bike park and racing.

Custom paint job

Custom paint job

With about 70 grams the paint jobs Lars Diedenhofen (70ID) creates are very light and allow the customization of the frame. After a gentle grind of the surface the filler is applied. Next up is the paint. In a separate procedure the graphics are painted. Finally one or more layers of clear coat are applied. In between the frame is grinded several times to make the decals stealth, not in a visual way, but so that you almost can't feel them.

Raw Finish

The lightest version of the frame does not feature any paint. The frame parts are deburred and minimal finish operations are executed. Finally the frame is rubbed with a wax-like finisher. The resin of the frame is UV-stabilized to protect it against sunlight. The raw finish reveals the mold separation lines visually and haptical.
Spare parts availability

SPARE PARTS AVAILABILITY

All spare parts such as the chainstay protector and all bearings are available at short notice and will be available in the long term. So the frame can be used for years. Due to local production and keeping the molds on hand, we can also make whole frame parts available for a long period of time - should our crash replacement ever be needed.
