Podium is a bike aimed at the most fanatic among the bikers, despite in what aspect in low weight or in supreme race machines. The carbon frame with 120 mm of travel weighing 2.09 kg (with axle and seat clamp), with 142X12 rear axle and tapered head tube. For the bottom bracket shell a wider press fit assembly is used in order to increase the stiffness in that area. For the cables there is internal routing available, and for the people that want to go extreme a route for a dropper post control is installed. The bike is assembled with top notch components of SRAM, RockShox, carbon cockpit of KORE, super light Crest wheel set of Stans NoTubes. The 1×11 drive train XX1 of SRAM delivers all the gears necessary. The tubeless wheels are finished with Maxxis Ikon 3C/TR tires for maximum comfort and grip. The M size bike is 10.17 kg, making it the perfect tool for melting every kilometer unnoticeably.

One Мan Аssembly Process
The so-called “One Мan Аssembly” process is a key-stone for the quality of every RAM Bike you see on the trails or in the city parks. Every single bike is being delivered to the dealer completely assembled and ready-to-go, with brakes and gears all set. You don’t have to do additional settings – bike components are not just attached to the frame, but assembled by a person, who is a passionate biker and knows the price of good work. In RAM factory we do even more – every mechanic guarantees with his name and signature for his works’ quality.
The final result is a bike that entirely responds to a biker’s attitude – not only looking as a MTB, but it is a Real Adventure Machinery. “One man assembly” is a time and resource- consuming process contrary to usual bike producing, but the difference is fully in favours of biker who chose RAM.
Hand Crafted Wheels
The process of hand lacing wheels is a key stone in our philosophy – individual attention to every wheel on every bike. The whole process is focused on a careful selection of details (spokes), and using only reliable components to avoid any failure of the wheel.
Pressure of every spoke in going under strict control during the whole wheel-building process. The main purpose is that – pressure should be optimized on the entire rim constantly – the goal achieved is longer life of the wheel and reducing repairing works on it after many miles on the tracks.
This process of “wheels lacing” takes up to one more hour of the mechanics’ work, but it gives you value – your RAM is more durable, even on the hardest rocky tracks!
