The Vexx is so close to being out. I do have all the specs and a nice image though.

Torment your adversaries with the Sette Vexx Complete Bike.

The Vexx DH bike is based upon classic DH geometry that will give it the versatility to perform in a variety of terrain. Although most of us fantasize about having a mountain with lift access in our backyard and wide open trails, the reality is most of us are shuttling our local single track or hitting our favorite session area where tighter turns and occasionally slower speeds are a part of the deal. The Vexx 6061 aluminum 8.5" travel frame is incredibly well thought out and keeps this reality in mind. The top tube is of monocoque construction to achieve focused, precise steering, all while maintaining plenty of clearance for maneuvering around on the frame. The Vexx also features CNC machined struts and linkage for superior tracking through the toughest terrain.

It's important to get the angles right, and the Vexx nails it with a 66 degree 1.5" machined head tube. You may need to re-visualize what lines are possible with the Vexx, yet the steering will never feel sluggish. You'll be in control of what lines to take, not the bike. Front to back, every detail is attended to: The bottom bracket gives you the wide stance of an 83mm shell and integrated ISCG (old) tabs for superior chain guide performance. Not only are all of the pivot bearings sealed but they are oversized at 10mm instead of the usual industry standard of 8mm. The rear triangle incorporates a 12 x 150mm bolt on thru-axle (supplied) that virtually eliminates flex in the frame. This decreases the amount of dish necessary for the rear wheel, making it stronger and more reliable. Sette has also provided a CNC machined replaceable rear derailleur hanger to take the substantial abuse of a DH rig. Suspension is controlled by the RockShox Vivid 4.1, a masterful shock that includes adjustments for both ending and beginning stroke rebound. The preload on the spring is also adjustable. All of the cable and hydraulic brake guides are logically well placed.

The parts spec on this bike is pretty choice. Sette wanted to make sure that every component inspired confidence and trust and came from manufacturers whose reputations were top notch. Up front is the RockShox Boxxer Race that incorporates the new Mission Control DH damper that features dual Flow Adjust compression and rebound as well as a new Maxle Lite DH. A SRAM X9/X7 drivetrain speeds things up and Avid Code 5s will slow you down when things get too exciting. The Gravity MegaExo DH cranks and bottom bracket are ready to handle the abuse of repeated sprints and pedal digs of crowded rock gardens. The cranks even come already equipped with an E13 bash guard. And what better company to start your wheel build with than Mavic? The Mavic EX729 Rims are mated to a Formula DHL-150 rear hub and Sette's own 20mm thru-axle front hub with sealed cartridge bearings. The Vexx is ready for most anything you throw at it and will help you push the boundaries of whatever gravity allows.
