The reception to Level Link has been overwhelmingly positive, with riders loving how our new suspension design brings a mix of climbing efficiency and downhill ability to a trail bike. The system has allowed us to make lighter, shorter travel bikes that are just plain fast everywhere—the only thing missing? Level Link bikes for women. Enter the Clutch 1. From the same team that produced the Release, the Clutch 1 is a bike for the female rider who’s looking to ride it all: climbing backcountry classics to flowing new machine-built trails. A short rear end and longer cockpit keep the bike stable at speed, while still being a blast in the corners. With its 1x11 SRAM drivetrain, smooth Rockshox Yari fork, and wide Blanchard rims, it’s a mountain bike made for today’s aggressive riders.
