The Release 1 is proof positive that getting a great bike doesn’t always require that you fork over a great big pile of cash. Built from a light yet tough aluminum frame, this all-mountain ripper features our much-lauded Level Link suspension design, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs. Or to employ less tech-geek speak, the suspension doesn’t bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush the moment your wheels start smacking roots and rocks. Our entry-level Release 1 is actually anything but “entry.” We’ve equipped it with an SR Suntour Aion suspension fork and a SR Suntour EDGE R rear shock, our Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, and Sram SX Eagle drivetrain components. TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes help bring you to a stop, though stopping is probably going to be the last thing you want to do when you bring this bike up to speed.

Bullet-proof, time-proven suspension at an unbeatable price. People say you have to spend a hell of a lot of cash to buy a full-suspension bike. Or at least a full-suspension bike that truly performs. They’re usually right. Usually. But not this time around. The Atroz proves them wrong with four inches of reliable coil-sprung rear suspension that nicely smooths out the trail. Since you’ll need to climb to the top of the mountain, we’ve also given the Atroz a 18-speed Shimano drivetrain, and when it’s time to head back down, you’ll find the Suntour XCM suspension fork and Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes keep you firmly in control of the descents. - Hand-built 4-inch travel aluminum alloy full-suspension frame is super strong - Optimized single pivot with sealed cartridge bearings for smooth, durable performance - 18 gears courtesy of Shimano 2x9 drivetrain - SR Suntour XCM fork with 120mm of suspension travel - Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes w/ 180/160mm rotors - 27.5” wheels offer quick handling
The Release 29 1 is a big-wheeled ripper made for long days and big lines. This aluminum 29er is built on the same 130mm-travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings. We've adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude of all our Level Link bikes. An SR Suntour Aion suspension fork and a Suntour Edge R rear shock soak up the rough stuff, while SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain components keep you cranking. Our Blanchard wheelset is tubeless compatible and comes with 2.3-inch-wide WTB Vigilante Comp tires for unwavering traction. When it's time to slow down, TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes keep you on your line all the way down the mountain.
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 12-speed drivetrain components offer up seasons of accurate shifts and Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes continue to impress with their excellent balance of 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.
