TRAIL AND TRACK AT FULL GAS
New for 2021 and the exciting reincarnation of our former World Cup winning XC and marathon machine. The new feature-loaded NINETY-SIX inherits the forward-searching race genes of the old NINETY-SIX and combines it with readiness and ability to tackle today's demanding XC and marathon courses. It also satisfies the growing demand for lightweight trail weapons that combine the climbing and sprinting ability of an XC race bike with a ‘trail-ability’ of a trail bike. The hugely capable 2021 frame platform is the perfect basis for a fun-packed, fast and trail loving short travel full suspension machine.
TRAIL FUN SIMPLIFIED
Today we often associate increased 'trail fun' with more and more full suspension travel due to the fact that long-travel bikes are getting more capable on the way down but also on the way back up again. At the same time, the trail hardtail has developed quietly in its shadow. After being absent from this segment, we are back with a bang, that combines modern trail bike geometry with long-travel forks and chunky 29er wheels for amazing corner grip and comfort. Welcome to the new BIG.TRAIL which offers simplified and hassle-free trail fun in spades.
RACE READY MEETS TRAIL PERFORMANCE
Closely related to our race, test and award-winning ONE-TWENTY, but with subtle differences that sets it apart from the big brother. The super-stiff chassis, the explosive acceleration, the proven and hugely efficient 'Float Link' rear suspension setup and the sporty, yet comfortable seating position of the 120 mm ONE-TWENTY inspired us to create a bike that has similar character trades but an extra dose of the racing gene – the ONE-TWENTY RC – the ideal bike for riders who want a more comfortable seating position and more trail panache than the NINETY-SIX, but don't need the extra travel of the 'original' ONE-TWENTY.

RACE READY MEETS TRAIL PERFORMANCE
Completely redesigned for the 2019 season, our 'do it all' bike, the ONE-TWENTY has continued its success story with the international cycling press and managed to add multiple test successes including a 'BEST IN TEST' in Enduro Mountainbike Magazine to its trophy cabinet. Riders and the press alike appreciated the versatility of our mid-travel bike, the hugely efficient rear suspension configuration and the sheer unstoppable trail munching capabilities. While very much a trail bike at heart, the modern, yet balanced, trail bike geometry, paired with fantastic frame stiffness created a mid-travel bike that is super capable on rough trails but also carries speed perfectly on less technically demanding tracks.
ALL MOUNTAIN AND TRAIL FUN
Since its launch in 2018 an instant winner with trail riders and the international cycling press alike. Our 140 mm trail machine was called a bike ‘with great pedalling efficiency, brilliant suspension and top fun handling’ (MBR), a ‘bloody hoot to ride’ (FLOW), a bike that ‘eagerly surges forward’ (IMB) and ‘one of the best mid-travel bikes we have ridden’ (MBUK). The super supple and active suspension system paired with great pedalling efficiency makes the ONE-FORTY the perfect trail bike for long demanding days in the saddle as well as technical trail sessions.
Our test-winning enduro bike combines a lightweight frame design with an aggressive geometry. The race and trail-proven frame is available in a carbon or aluminium front triangle version and a multitude of spec levels, allowing the seasoned as well as the 'greenhorn' enduro rider to find the perfect bike for their budget. For the 2021 season were are making our ONE-SIXTY even more gravity orientated by speccing four piston brakes throughout the range, a minimum of 150 mm drop on the post and DH focused Maxxis Dissector DD and Assegai DD tyres for reliable trail performance.
