New Ibis Prototype


Santa Cruz Tallboy

"This'll be our third carbon fiber bike, and the more time we spend working with the material, the more we are able to push into new definitions of stiffness and strength.
Tapered head tubes, massive but super light chainstays and rear triangles, absolutely rock solid frames, and they're still around two pounds lighter than most of the similarly targeted competition. Super stiff, super strong, super snappy."

"The Tallboy will have 100mm of travel. The lower link features the same 15mm aluminium pivot axles, titanium hardware, angular contact bearings, grease ports, durability and ease of maintenance as found on our Blur LT.

"There's also a carbon fibre upper link, with the same trick hardware and angular contact bearings on the big axle. Clean, neutral pedaling without bob or feedback, and plush bump eating suspension performance across the board."

New Yeti Prototype





"Yeti had their prototype, I mean PROTOTYPE, frame out. The gentleman I spoke with put an emphasis on it being a prototype as it is simply a welded up version of a CAD drawing. Yeti utilizes their rail technology with all their DH bikes, so this is no different. The idea here is to have the rail guide the wheel path, and the upper link control the shock rates. Seems like a wicked design, and a cool looking bike all together."
