27.5 inch (650b) wheels, 6 inches (155mm) of rear travel, paired with a 150mm fork.
Headtube angle ranges from 66 degrees on the extra small, small, and medium. The Large gets a slightly steeper 66.25, and 66.5 for the extra large. All of this translates to a bike that steers incredibly well at high speeds. That’s exactly what you want in a 6 inch bike, because you will probably be flying through the woods over some rough stuff, and down steeper-than-not descents on this beast.
In addition to the downhill-like front end geometry, out back you get shorter chainstays and a solid (read: stiff and durable) rear triangle, as afforded by the DW Link rear suspension design. This makes for a platform that can climb better than virtually anything in its category.
One last noteworthy detail… Our first few bikes are spec’d with the new KS LEV Integra dropper post. This internally routed and infinitely adjustable post wraps up this build very well.
