Shortcut Wild Thing For two years now, Mercedes-AMG has been successfully partnering with the German mountain bike manufacturer Rotwild. And in the wake of the R.X45 AMG full-suspension carbon mountain bike now comes the next step in the cooperation between the two high-performance brands that stand for racing, distinctive design, and German engineering. The ROTWILD GT S inspired by AMG is, if you will, the Mercedes- AMG GT S of bicycles. The frame of the bike systematically follows the idea of lightweight and cushioning comfort, for which Rotwild has developed new custom production techniques. The result is an extra-lightweight frame with optimum rigidity and ideal damping characteristics. The ROTWILD GT S inspired by AMG is equipped with an electronic Shimano XTR drive, which is controlled by an electronic derailleur. The derailleur switches independently and makes the second lever on the handlebar superfluous. This ensures efficient power transmission, short operating paths, and rapid shifting. Also built for use under the toughest conditions is the Formula R1 Racing AMG FCS hydraulic disc brake. With a total weight of a sensational 267 grams, it represents one of the lightest production brakes in the bike world. Inspired by AMG applies not only to the technology of the ROTWILD GT S but also to its design. The color scheme in expressive Solarbeam and Carbon Black inspires confidence and also aligns it with the Mercedes AMG GT S – the sportiness and passion of which are found in every detail of the ROTWILD GT S.
