At the core of the Hook 1 is the high quality Japanese Sanko crmo tubing built into the proven geometry of the original Hook frame. The front triangle is heat-treated which allows the tube walls to be thinner. The result is reduced weight but without compromising strength. The characteristic solid and stable feel of the frame comes from the geometry and larger diameter tubes that connect to the rear wheel through the BB30 hub shell. These larger diameter tubes are inherently stiffer and create a larger surface area for the welding, making for a stronger junction. The larger oval section chain stays allow for a stiffer connection to the rear axle, as well as providing more mud clearance around the tires.
The carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube helps to provide more direct handling as well as keeping the front-end weight down. The Sram Apex group set offers smooth and reliable shifting and with an 11-32 cassette and 50/34 chain rings the Hook 1 can handle any kind of terrain. The Mavic Crossride wheelset offers a very strong and reliable wheelset for the Hook. Thanks to the double seals used on the cartridge bearings and the rims having a reinforced spoke hole the wheels are smooth, fast and very durable. To make sure stopping is not a problem, the Hook 1 uses the proven TRP Spyre disc calipers with a powerful dual action system that applies pressure to the disc from both sides rather than just one.
