Christian Gugliotta, the main man at Atomz, the trials branch of the Sunn group that has proved itself in national and international competitions throughout 2009, sent us the first images of the Atomz Quark 2010 range last month, followed by the latest images of the (Quark II 26").
The range stays true to its roots, with the sober graphics and colours that have characterised it from the beginning. The overall design of the Quark is the same, but the bike has been improved in a few places and will be a bit more reliable than the Quark I: The frame has been improved, notable around the dropouts, the fork has been changed, as have the cranks, hubs and freewheel, and the graphics and colour have been updated by their in-house designer Philippe Bonnefoy, and the frame will be available in grey or white. The look of the UN Elitis TR components has also been updated. The new 20”, in contrast to the AKT II XX, is designed with UCI riding in mind, with a larger ground clearance and no bash plate. Here are the geometries of the Quark II 20 and 26… You will notice that the 26” is slightly higher than the previous version.
The Quark geometries:
