Look. At. All. That. Carbon. @ericbarone_officiel , aka le Baron Rouge, is a French athlete who currently holds the world speed record for mountain bikes at 227.720km/h (141.498 mph). The bike he rode (pictured above) is a custom prototype manufactured by @sunn_bikes , called the Sunn F2.0. The bike is steel framed weighing 55 pounds. It has a 70mm travel prototype Suntour fork, with 100mm of travel in the rear. The Sunn F2.0 has a 27.5" front wheel and a 29" rear wheel, while the wheelbase was extended 6.5cms for added stability. The wheels are prototype @mavic_mtb carbon Crossmax XL, mated to @hopetech 200mm V4 ventalated disk brakes and stock @hutchinsontires Python2 tyres. Finally, our personal favourite touch - the custom carbon fairing was built and optimized at the ACE wind tunnel by former Prost F1 engineers, along with Eric's special rubberized aero suit.
Eric set and broke multiple records consecutively; in 2001 he decended a volcano at 130 km/h (81mph); and on May 12th 2002 he broke his own record by descending at 163 km/h (101mph) on a production mountain bike. On Eric's second attempt on the same day, he used a prototype Sunn mountain bike whose fork shattered just 400 meters into the run - just as the computers recorded 172 km/h (107mph). Eric suffered extensive injuries including 2 torn shoulders, 6 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken femur, and a concussion. Eric did not attempt the record again for 10 years, which he says was mostly because of the psychological trauma he experienced getting back on the bike. He would return in 2015 to break his own record on snow at 223.3 km/h, and again most recently in 2017 at a mind bending 227 km/h (141.498mph)! At 59 years young, what will Eric do next?
