Danish mountain bike company Pronghorn has revised their lineup for 2010 with small tweaks, including:

  • Adding 1.5″ steerer tube to their long-travel PR6-LT (above)
  • Switched from Kenda to Schwalbe tires

The LT has 150mm travel and, like all of Pronghorn’s full suspension mountain bikes, it uses their unique top-mounted shock.  Pronghorn claims this system, dubbed APLS (Anti-Power Loss System), keeps the bike riding like a hardtail on the climbs with the full susser benefits on the descents.
