We won’t shy away from saying the Release Three is the best trail bike we’ve ever made. Designed to deliver our new Level Link suspension platform to the public, it’s our dream machine come to life. The frame’s geometry was engineered to get the most out of our new suspension. The lines reflect today’s mountain bike: a shorter rear end and longer top tube make for a quick bike that stays stable at speed. With 130mm of rear travel and a 150mm RockShox Pike up front, this bike gobbles up rough sections like a much bigger bike. And as an extremely efficient pedaler, it blazes up climbs and rolling singletrack just as well. Hydroformed aluminum tubes make up the low-slung and semi-slack frame. We chose top notch parts to finish off the build. 11-speed SRAM X1, a KS LEV Integra dropper post, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors, and our new wide Blanchard rims. For riders who look for speed at every possible moment, the Release Three is the bike.
