2012 UCI Downhill Women’s World Champion Morgane Charre has been knocking around the trails of Punta Ala recently, doing some pre-season training and testing. We managed to pull her aside to take a look at her Bergamont DH bike, the Straitline Team, for a close up look.

“So I’ll be racing the whole World Cup circuit this year, World Champs, plus several French Cups / IXS Cups as well as Crankworx Europe. (Maybe Crankworx Whistler..).” (Morgane Charre)

WM8J0003

Bergamont have gone for a fairly bright colour scheme that sets the Straitline apart.

WM8J0012

First things first, notice the Manitou upsidedown Dorado fork. She uses a fairly standard tune and rebound speed is set to be middle of the road. Her rear shock has a 350lb spring.

WM8J0013

Morgane runs a 760mm bar cut down from 780mm.

WM8J0018

The front end up-close with the lowers protection.

WM8J0019

E*Thirteen LG1 chain management.

WM8J0020

1×10 SRAM as standard, however Morgane uses a 1×7 setup for racing. She starts normally in third gear then heads down the block as she gets closer to the finish.

WM8J0024

Another world champion that uses flat pedals!

WM8J0027

Magura MT7 brakes on 203mm front and rear discs.

WM8J0040

Soft Renthal Push on grips, motocross style. (she is searching for her ideal diameter still so this is work in progress.)

WM8J0041

SDG saddle.

Sun Ringle´ Inferno rims and Jumping Flea hubs matted together with Maxxis Minion tyres.

WM8J0058
External cable routing for high speed changes.

WM8J0059

This is where Morganes bite point is.
