Bike info

Our new long travel machine was built for shredding trails and bike parks and comes with a unique 29” front and 27.5” rear wheel “Mullet” setup. This gives the rider the best of both worlds for this type of bike. The front rolls over stuff with ease but the smaller rear wheel makes it easy to throw the bike around. It also means we could squeeze in 180mm of travel. Perfect for riders on a budget looking for a gravity focused all rounder. A favorite among our test riders and magazine editors too!
