Keep up with the guys on DH rigs in a bike park on one day and then do an epic ride with your mates on XC rigs on the next. Widely praised for performance and reliability the Snabb is the most complete mountain bike we can imagine. The massive one piece rocker arm makes the rear triangle incredibly stable and drives the new generation of metric shocks with a trunion mount - longer, bigger, better. The result is an even more rigid rear end and a more linear suspension curve than in the earlier models. The suspension kinematics are dialed to perfection (Pinkbike: "There is so little pedal-induced bobbing at play here that it sort of boggles the mind”) and the geometry is modern, low, long and slack. The frames are built to DH racing standards and run on high-end MAX bearings for prolonged periods of smooth, service free use. The 160C is really the ultimate mountain bike. The use of the highest grades of carbon fibre results in over 600g weight savings over the alloy versions. The main purpose of the bike is to excel at Enduro races, but even if you don't race, this is probably one of the most versatile mountain bikes out there.

The frame comes fitted with the Fox Factory Kashima shock that has exceptional small bump compliance and will work best with a 160mm-170mm fork.
