Arguably one of the most universal bikes in the range. Rip up and down mountains all day, every day. The carbon version of the highly praised Snabb can really do it all but the Define takes things to the next level. This beautiful frame is light and tough and has lot's of unique features including adjustable reach and BB height. One of things we like a lot are the semi-integrated cable guides - a practical and elegant solution of the internal / external cable routing dilemma. Oh and don't be fooled by the “shortness” of it's travel. It really feels like it has much more than the quoted numbers. At the same time, the climbing capability of this bike is absolutely amazing.

One of our favourite bikes in the range, the 29-er Snabb now goes carbon! The frame of this bike is not just a fancy version of the alloy workhorse.

We worked hard to make sure we really are taking things to the next level. To start with, the industrial design was conceived by the guys who made the Eurobike Gold Award winning Rondo Ruut. It features unique semi-internal cable routing - the lines are elegantly hidden away, but there is none of the hassle that is involved with standard internal routing. The frame has adjustable geometry: you can adjust the reach via offset headset caps and adjust the height of the BB via interchangeable shock mounts (it’s even possible to change the the travel by swapping the shock and shock mounts). Big sealed pivots keep the frame stable and guarantee long periods of smooth, service free function. There are a few things that we did “borrow” directly from the Snabb - and that is the kinematics of the 4-bar suspension that everyone loves (Pinkbike: "There is so little pedal-induced bobbing at play here that it sort of boggles the mind”), progressive geometry and all-round fun factor.

Specifications subject to change without notice. Actual colours and design may vary slightly from the images on the website.


You can raise the BB height by 5mm from the stock settings by using the adjustable shock mount or you can completely transform the bike by changing the shock mount & shock (changes travel from 155 mm to 130 mm or vice versa).




The pivot that is most difficult to replace is hidden inside the frame and remains completely isolated from dirt and water inside the frame.


The cables appear to be threaded through the downtube and chainstay...



But actually, they are only hidden in a special channel in the construction. Easy to replace anytime, anywhere!
