The Zealous Division is designed to have the shortest back end possible for a 29er – and as such there isn’t infinite tyre clearance. But there are times when nothing but a super fat tyre on a big wide rim is the only thing that will do! If you have a MK1 Division, you may find that sometimes, you just can’t fit the tyre/rim combo that works for you….
For times like this, we developed the ‘Plus 8’ dropout – which pretty much does what it says on the tin – it adds 8mm to the chainstay length of the Division, allowing you to create more clearance and thus fitting wider tyres, rims or both.
Like our other Zealous design dropouts, they are fully DMR licensed to use the ‘Swapout’ system. In fact, DMR liked our idea so much that they actually went ahead and made them for us, and started to use the ‘Plus 8’ dropout as a wheel size converter for one of their 26″ bikes!
