PSYCHLO X RSL WINS BEST CYCLOCROSS BIKE NAHBS 2012
Following closely in the footsteps of the Vamoots RSL and Mooto X RSL, this frame was designed to make it the leader in its class. Our overall objective was to build the lightest and stiffest, high-performance titanium cyclocross bike available to racers today. And to do it without compromising the unique Moots ride quality or lifetime durability. We started by incorporating a 44mm oversized head tube to increase front-end stiffness and enhance handling responsiveness. This feature also allows you to run a 1 1/2” to 1 1/8” tapered fork if you wish. Next, we spec’d our large-diameter, thin-walled, U.S.-made seamless, double-butted tube set to increase overall fame stiffness while reducing weight. We also incorporated our PF 30 bottom bracket to achieve greater stiffness for more immediate power transfer under accelerating pedal force. For the rear section of the frame, we formed and tapered the chain stays and seat stays to increase clearance while providing an elegant look and supple ride for those times when the cross course surfaces turn ugly (which fortunately or unfortunately, they do quite often.) Finally, we formed the top tube to provide comfortable shouldering for those stretches when the course is better raced on foot.
