The adventurous spirit of mountain biking lives on with Level Link. Our patent pending platform isolates pedaling from suspension inputs, making these bikes efficient climbers and pedalers. Combined with a slack front end and low center of gravity, 130mm of travel feels like much more. Traction, feel, efficiency - Level Link brings it all to the table.
The lower link stays in line with the chain throughout compression of the rear suspension. This minimizes the effect of pedaling forces on the system. In short: you can smash through rock gardens with a minimum of pedal feedback.
The upper link is perpendicular to the lower link at the sag point (where most pedaling occurs). This allows the system to stay active,ensuring traction is always maximized.
With suspension independent of the drivetrain, Level Link is fully responsive on the trail. It offers excellent bump compliance, predictably soaking up both small and large hits. There's no denying it: our level link bikes are very fast. On climbs,the rear wheel stays planted,delivering grip on long fire roads or punchy technical sections. Downhill,Level Link bikes feel as if they have considerably more travel than expected.WATCH THE STORY OF LEVEL LINK VIDEO
