Db8

The DB-8 is a no-holds-barred downhill sled made to blaze down mountainsides. The ultra-stiff aluminum frame gives you point and shoot confidence to send the gnarliest lines, and the 150mm rear spacing and oversized main pivot add extra muscle to keep you on track when you’re banging berms or barreling full speed through rock gardens. The RockShox Boxxer fork and FOX Van RC rear shock pack 200mm of terrain eating suspension to make sure that nothing is going to stop you until you reach the bottom. And because this new rig rolls on 27.5” wheels, you’re going to get there even faster.

Highlights:

  • Hand built weapons grade 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed tubing and tapered head tube is supremely durable
  • 200mm of suspension travel with oversized single pivot for total downhill domination
  • 150x12mm through axle construction all but eliminates flex in the rear triangle
  • RockShox Boxxer RC coil spring 200mm travel fork takes the big hits
  • FOX Van RC coil rear shock sets the bar for downhill suspension
  • Shimano Zee drivetrain is the workhorse of gravity groupsets
