Horsethief is our full-suspension 29’er trail bike, designed for all-day riding on rugged terrain.
A very capable climber, Horsethief does have a slight bias toward descending, letting you enjoy the fruits of your uphill labor. By designing the bike for use with a shorter than normal stem, the body is positioned better for aggressive riding.
120mm of rear travel delivered through a custom-tuned Fox shock is paired with 120mm to 140mm of front travel to help you enjoy riding the rough stuff.
The pivot-minimizing suspension design and 142 x 12mm Maxle dropout help keep the rear end tight and tracking well. Removing the rear pivot also reduces chassis weight, and reduces complexity and maintenance.
Devour terrain. Conquer obstacles. Enjoy life.
Horsethief. There’s a new sheriff in town.
