Release 3

$3,300.00

A privateer is a top-level rider who hits the trails without the benefit of a fancy sponsorship deal. Their ideal rig? A blue-collar machine that doesn’t skimp on performance. That sums up the Release 3 perfectly. The heart of the bike is our artfully shaped and butted aluminum frame and brisk-pedaling Level Link suspension. A Fox 34 Performance Float 150mm travel fork and Fox Float DPX2 rear shock work in perfect tandem to obliterate tooth-rattling hits on even the longest of descents. Shimano’s reliable XT 11-speed drivetrain components offer up seasons of accurate shifts and Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes continue to impress with their excellent balance of pucker power and finesse. Other brag-worthy components include our burly Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR tires and a KS LEV Si dropper post. The Release 3…pro-caliber quality for those of us with day jobs.
