If you’re not going to be able to make it to the Haro Sonix demo at Aliso Woods Canyon this weekend, the Haro demo crew will be at the U.S. Nationals at Infineon Raceway July 13-16. Whether you’re going to be chasing a Stars ‘n Stripes jersey of your own or just coming to cheer on the athletes, come take a break and check out the new bikes. We’ll have a fleet of Haro Sonix VL120, Sonix VL120s, and Werx 5/VL120 bikes for you to test ride free of charge. Be sure to bring your helmet, pedal of choice (if not Shimano SPD), your driver’s license, and a credit card (held just for collateral).
The Haro Sonix features brand-new, patent pending Virtual Link suspension technology. What makes this suspension platform so special? The Sonix incorporates a virtual pivot that moves in a half-orbit around the bottom bracket to eliminate pedal-induced bobbing, while leaving the rear wheel free to respond to the terrain. Its short, pivotless chainstays mean there’s zero drivetrain flex—it pedals with hardtail efficiency, and with zero chainline growth there’s no pedal kickback. The engineering may be complicated, but the resulting improvements in performance are obvious even to those of us with average intelligence and riding skills. We’re pretty confident you’ll like the ride. Mountain Biking magazine liked the bike so much, they gave it their 2006 Cross-Country Bike of the Year award.
Look for the Haro tent in the event tech expo area and come take a Sonix for a spin. We won’t be trying to sell you anything; that’s not our job. Once we get you set up on a bike, we’ll turn you loose and let the bikes do all the talking.
