All Hercules MTB bicycles with Turbo Drive are designed to be faster and more powerful than any other ordinary bicycle in this category.
Cycling is very repetitive in nature. During 30 minutes of cycling, a rider may pedal up to 2,500 pedal revolutions. The smallest amount of misalignment, whether due to body posture or due to the cycle itself can lead to dysfunction, impaired performance or pain. Proper foot placement on the pedals is an important factor in the way knees respond to cycling. Improper feet alignment can put great stress on knee ligaments. It is with this learning in mind that Hercules MTB now introduces the all new Hercules MTB range with Turbo Drive.
These bicycles offer :
1. A ribbed bent crank, which gives the rider a wider and more comfortable angle while riding. This ensures that right posture for the rider and transmits all the riding effort into the Chainwheel with minimum wastage.
2. A newly developed low function Turbo Chainwheel and crank set that convert the riding effort into turbo power.
Research at T.I has conclusively proven that Hercules MTB cycles with Turbo Drive are significantly faster than other normal MTB's. More power, more speed and enhanced thrill. that you wanted in a cycle and more. Check out the new and exciting range of Hercules MTB cycles with Turbo Drive. Hercules MTB Turbo Drive is available in AXN Dx, AXN Dx 24, Ultima Dx, Ultima Ex, Ultima 24, Explorer Ex, Explorer Lx and Thriller Dx.
