A much less excessive 161
In comparison with the enduro 161, Privateer has stretched out the seating place barely on the 141 with a 5mm shorter attain throughout the sizes and an extended high tube.
The top-tube angle has steepened from 64 levels to 64.5 levels and the efficient seat-tube angle slackened to simply over 78 levels, in comparison with the 161’s 80-degree angle.
The chainstay size will increase from 434mm to 452mm because the body dimension will increase, one thing that we’re not used to seeing on many manufacturers’ bikes – they’re often constant throughout sizes. The advisable fork offset is 37mm for the 27.5in P1, rising to 42mm for the 29ers.

With an identical linkage design to the 161, as you’d anticipate, the brand new body’s kinematics work out fairly comparable too. So anti-rise peaks at round 50 per cent, roughly 70mm into its journey.
Anti-squat figures are comparable too, which ought to result in environment friendly pedalling dynamics, whereas the leverage ratio reveals a peak in direction of the beginning of journey, and there’s an identical preliminary 2.5mm rearward arc for the rear wheel.
