The Vexx 6061 aluminum 8.5" travel frame is an incredibly well thought out machine. The top tube is of monocoque construction to achieve very focused, precise steering, all while maintaining plenty of clearance for maneuvering around on the frame. The Vexx also features CNC machined struts and linkage for superior tracking through the toughest terrain.
It's important to get the angles right, and the Vexx nails it with a 66 degree 1.5" machined head tube. You may need to re-visualize what lines are possible with the Vexx, yet the steering will never feel sluggish so that you'll be in control of what lines to take, not the bike. Front to back, every detail is attended to: The bottom bracket gives you the wide stance of an 83mm shell and integrated ISCG (old) tabs for superior chain guide performance. Not only are all of the pivot bearings sealed but they are oversized at 10mm instead of the usual industry standard of 8mm. The rear triangle incorporates a 12 x 150mm bolt on thru-axle (supplied) that virtually eliminates flex in the frame. This decreases the amount of dish necessary for the rear wheel, making it stronger and more reliable.
Sette has also provided a CNC machined replaceable rear derailleur hanger to take the substantial abuse of a DH rig. Suspension is controlled by the RockShox Vivid 4.1, a masterful shock that includes adjustments for both ending and beginning stroke rebound. The preload on the spring is also adjustable. Building up this frame should be a breeze. All of the cable and hydraulic brake guides are logically well placed. Command the perfect line with the Sette Vexx DH frame.
"Well I have only had the frame for about two weeks and can say it pedals better than I thought it would. The steering angles are very close to my old trek session 77. The bike sits fairly low and the center of gravity is low, so railing turns is nice and smooth..."
