Crushes Climbs, Slays Descents…And Rewrites the 29er Playbook

Enduro courses. World Cup Downhill courses. It’s hard to tell the difference between the two these days. Well, right up until the point when you have to grind your way to the top of the absolute hairball descent—that would be enduro. And that is also where the new Firebird 29 enters the picture—with its speed generating 29er wheels and a penchant for kicking ass.

The Firebird 29’s big wheels gobble up miles with ease, roll right over the gnar and add insane levels of traction to the mix. But this is no monster truck. The Firebird 29 is a lightweight machine that boasts a poppy, lively feel that long-travel 29ers have never possessed. Until now.

Long Travel 29er Geometry Redefined

We obsessed over this bike’s geometry. After all, adding big wheels to a bike with this much travel is not always a recipe for awesome. History is littered with almost there long-travel 29ers. The Firebird 29, however, is a very different—and awesome—kind of beast. With its long front-center and short chainstay combination, the Firebird 29 possesses that nimble, snappy feel that tempts you to make bold line choices yet allows you to stay in complete control when you’re warping down trails at World Cup speeds.

The Bomb-Proof Bantam Weight

The Firebird 29 has a lot to live up to. On one hand, it needs to withstand repeated pummelings at bike parks and on the toughest trails. It has to be bomb proof. On the other hand, it also needs to be incredibly light—this bike is meant to give you an edge on the climbs. Since a 29er wheelset inherently packs more grams than the same wheelset in a smaller, 27.5 diameter, we knew there couldn‘t be any fat on the Firebird 29 frame. So, we made it both bomb proof and lean. Thanks to our own hollow-core, high-compression carbon molding process and an exacting combination of composite materials and shapes, we are able to deliver an ultra-light frame that meets the same stringent testing requirements for strength and stiffness as our World Cup downhill bike. Firebird frames weigh in at a mere 7 pounds (3.2kg) while complete bikes tip the scales at sub-30 pounds(13.5kg).

Playful Yet Stable

The Firebird 29 features a long front center, short chainstays, a low center of gravity and a decidedly slack 65-degree head angle to deliver unmatched stability and handling. Plus, a new flip-chip adjustment system in its upper linkage offers quick and easy geometry fine tuning. Taking a page from the Phoenix DH Carbon’s progressive geometry, the Firebird combines some of the longest reach measurements in the sport, with short, 16.96” (431mm) chainstays. The Firebird’s long and low geometry gives you increased stability at high speeds and on steep technical challenges, while its short chainstays provide a maneuverable, dynamic ride that makes it easy to put the bike precisely where you want it.

Fast and Efficient

Dave Weagle’s dw-link™ rear suspension enables us to build a bike that achieves the ultimate in both downhill and climbing performance. The dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path traits yield both the square-edge bump absorption of a downhill bike and the crisp, pedaling efficiency of a shorter-travel trail bike. Fast and efficient—It’s a hell of a combination.

Fox for the Win

A top-notch frame design deserves top-tier suspension. That’s why the Firebird 29 comes equipped with Fox’s class-leading Float X2 and DPX2 shocks. Our top racers consistently choose the Fox Float X2 air shock for its incredible control, tuneability and plush, coil-like feel. Or to put a finer point on it—this shock gets the nod because it allows you to hit downhills faster with greater confidence. On top of that, the Float X2’s climb switch makes the Firebird an Enduro-style rider’s best choice for getting up and down the mountain. The DPX2 offers much of the same long-travel performance in a lighter package. To match the rear suspension, we equip all of our Firebird 29’s with the latest 44mm offset, 170mm Fox 36 FIT GRIP2 forks – the perfect choice for aggressive, balanced handling in technical terrain.

Ed Masters Introduces the New Firebird 29 from Pivot Cycles on Vimeo.

Which size bike should I purchase?

To ensure the best sizing, we recommend that you visit your local Pivot dealer to get a professional fit and refer to our geometry chart to check your measurements. However, we can provide a rough guideline:

Small: 5’4″ – 5’9″
Medium: 5’8″ – 5’11″
Large: 5’11″ – 6’3′
X-Large: 6’2″ +

We suggest that you pick your Firebird 29 size based on your riding style. The Firebird 29 features our longest geometry to date (increased reach measurements). Combined with both shorter seat tube and head tube measurements per size – this geometry means that most riders can go up or down a size and should base their choice on riding-style, reach and stem length preferences. Be sure to also consult our dropper post fit guide when making your selection. You can always reach out to us on Live Chat for additional guidance.

How do I set the sag on my bike?

We make it easy to get the best ride out of your Pivot bike with a simple sag indicator already installed on your shock, and this follow-along video featuring our own Bernard Kerr:

https://vimeo.com/pivotcycles/sag

What is the “flip chip” on the Firebird 29 and when would I want to use it?

The flip chip is a simple way to adjust the geometry on your Firebird 29. It allows you to either adjust the geometry for different trail conditions (using 29” wheels) or can allow for the use of 27.5 wheels X with 2.6’-2.8” tires as well. The chip comes set up in the low BB setting. This is perfect for riding fast, technical and steep terrain. However, if you prefer a little more crank clearance and slightly quicker handling for tighter terrain with more climbing and/or roots and rocks, you may prefer the high BB setting. The high BB setting will raise the bottom bracket and steepen the head angle by ½ degree giving the bike faster turn in. Additionally, if you want to run 27.5 wheels X with 2.6’-2.8” tires, you would also need to run the bike in the High BB setting combined with our 17mm extended headset cup (more on that below). The combination of the higher BB setting and the taller cup allow the smaller diameter wheels to be used while maintain the same geometry and similar BB height to the bike set up with 29” wheels.

How do I use the flip-chip system?

The Firebird 29’s flip chip geometry adjustment system is super easy to use. Simply loosen using a 6mm hex wrench (these are reverse so you need to turn the wrench to the right to loosen). Partially back out the bolts – there is no need to completely remove the bolts. Then pull the chips out and rotate them to your desired position, tighten the bolts to 35 Nm and enjoy your bike’s new handling and feel. Please see the geometry chart for the numbers associated with the different settings.

Can I run 27.5″ wheels on my Firebird 29?

Yes, the Firebird 29 will fit 27.5+ tires in 2.6’-2.8” (Maxxis) with up to 40mm (inner) rims.

What do I need to know to switch between 29” and 27.5”+ wheels?

The 27.5” wheels with Maxxis 2.8” tires have a smaller diameter than the 29” wheels with 2.4” and 2.5” wide trail tires used on the Firebird 29. This difference results in a lower bottom bracket height when running 27.5” wheels. To adjust the BB height, the Firebird 29 comes a flip chip upper link mount with high and low settings. Pivot also sells an optional 17mm lower headset cup that when used in conjunction with the high flip chip setting brings the bottom bracket back to the same height as when using 29er wheels in the low chip setting. Some riders will just leave the 17mm cup in regardless of wheels size. Please note that we ship all complete bikes with enough spacers to allow for the addition of a 17mm cup. If the fork is pre-cut for the zero-stack cup and additional spacers are not installed, you will not have a long enough fork steer tube to run the 17mm cup option.

fb cup

What rear hub spacing is used on the Firebird 29?

The Firebird 29 uses a 157mm rear hub spacing in a configuration called Super Boost Plus 157. The rear hub spacing is the standard 157mm spacing available from every hub manufacturer in the world so any 157mm X 12mm hub is compatible with the Firebird 29. Super Boost Plus 157 builds on the idea of wider flange spacing pioneered by Boost 148. Super Boost Plus spreads the flanges even wider (up to 14mm wider than a 142mm hub) and increases wheel stiffness substantially, which is a huge benefit on 29” enduro and 27.5” wheels. Although any 12mm X 157mm hub can be used, the special Super Boost Plus versions developed with Pivot, DT Swiss, Industry 9, and Reynolds makes for a highly optimized 29er enduro and 27.5+ wheel combinations that take wheel performance to another level. SRAM also offers a similar concept 157mm hub in their standard XO line. Super Boost Plus Hub flange spacing is also available on wheels from Stan’s and hubs from Onyx. Most hub companies are adopting the Super Boost wider flange spacing to their 157mm hubs so if you have a particular brand of hub that you are looking at, its best to check with the manufacturer as to what they are running.

hubs

So, what exactly is Super Boost Plus 157, and why can’t I live without it?

Super Boost Plus 157 uses the existing chainline developed for DH bikes but uses standard trailbike BB widths and crank combinations to take 29” and Plus bike performance to the next level. The current Boost 148 standard moves the drivetrain out 3mm (providing 6mm more tire clearance) which is perfect for XC, and 27.5” enduro bikes, but it did not go far enough to meet the rapidly evolving 29” trail, enduro and 27.5”+ bike needs. Super Boost Plus 157 takes the concept further and optimizes it for 29” trail, enduro and Plus bikes by moving the drivetrain out a full 6mm (with a 12mm tire clearance gain) while maintaining the same Q factor (crank width) and heel clearance of our Boost 148 equipped bikes. Super Boost Plus 157 is a highly optimized combination of existing standards and technologies with a totally ridiculous (but highly descriptive) name. The Super Boost Plus 157 idea has enabled us to build the Firebird 29 with a level of performance previously unattainable with any other 29” or 27.5”+ enduro bike in the market.

* Ultra Short 16.96” (431mm) chainstays perfectly complements the Firebird 29’s long and low stature allowing you to manual up and over even the gnarliest obstacles while keeping the wheelbase length in check so that you can still clean tight switchbacks and rail corners with confidence and agility like you’ve never experienced before.
* A massive increase in tire clearance for running up 3.0” X 27.5+ and 2.6” X 29” tires with incredible mud clearance: Who doesn’t like that! You can run your racy 29” X 2.4WT tires in the summer and then step up to something much wider in bad weather to extend your riding season or just plow through the mud on your 29er wheels with confidence knowing that the Firebird 29 can handle it all.
* Increased frame stiffness: A better performing bike allows you to push the limits even further and the Firebird 29 has no weak links. This is the bike that allows you to set new boundaries.
* Increased wheel stiffness: The Super Boost Plus specific hubs on all our Firebird 29 builds increase the hub flange width and provide for more even (better) spoke tension and the results are incredible. On a DT Swiss 29er alloy wheel with a 25mm inner width rim, the Super Boost Plus wheel is 46% stiffer then the same wheel built with a 142mm hub and 30% stiffer than the same wheel built with a Boost 148mm hub. Interestingly, the Super Boost Plus rear wheel and a standard Boost front wheel wind up being very similar in overall stiffness. What this means for the trail rider is that you get more evenly matched strength and stiffness between the front and rear wheels and the most durable wheelset possible.

Did you just design Super Boost Plus to give all the commenter’s on Pinkbike something to talk about?

Yes and no. We do love being the topic of conversation but the reality is that Super Boost Plus will make you a better rider. Just watch Eddy Masters Firebird 29 video and you’ll see just how Super, Super Boost Plus really is. Just like Eddy, You and your Firebird 29 will be able to manual for DAYS and you will look amazing doing it!

What cranks will the Firebird 29 accept?

The Firebird 29 will accept all cranks designed for the Super Boost Plus system and compatible with a press fit 92mm bottom bracket. The Super Boost Plus system is based on several standard cranks in the market. When you purchase your Firebird 29 complete from Pivot, 1X PRO XT/XTR and 1X RACE XT level builds will feature a custom spindle Race Face Aeffect SL crankset to optimize chainline. TEAM XTR1X builds feature a special Race Face Cinch spindle. All SRAM equipped Firebird 29’s from Pivot come complete with the One Up SB+ Switch Spider and chainring system and a 32T chainring. This kit comes stock with a 32T ring but rings from 28T-34T are available to fit the Firebird 29. These rings and the special One Up SB+ Switch Spider can also be purchased separately directly from One Up.

The standard Race Face Turbine and Aeffect SL 1X cranks with the Cinch chainring flipped is also fully compatible with the Super Boost Plus 157 system (although the chainline will be approximately 1mm outboard compared to the custom configurations provided with our complete bike offerings). In addition, most current DH cranks are compatible, although spacers will need to be used and you would not have the low Q factor (crank width) benefits of Super Boost Plus. The Firebird 29 will accept cranks with a standard Q factor measurement as low as 168mm and featuring a 56-57mm chainline. Several other crank manufacturers are working on compatible designs that will be available in the market in the very near future.

crankshttps://www.oneupcomponents.com/collections/switch/products/switch-sdm?variant=31481758337

Will I have reduced heel clearance with Super Boost Plus?

Absolutely not! All Pivot bikes with Super Boost Plus 157 spacing are highly optimized to achieve even better heel clearance then our previous generation 142mm spaced XC bikes. Some of our designers and engineers at Pivot have abnormally large feet, and we all know what they say about large feet. Yep…Bad heel clearance. So, with that in mind, we made sure that our heal clearance is best in class. If it clears our abnormally large clown feet (which it does), it will clear yours.

Can I run a double chainring crank on the Firebird 29?

No, the Firebird 29 is only 1x drivetrain compatible. To achieve the stiffness goals that make this a class leading enduro bike we designed a new wider lower link that’s leaving no room for a front derailleur.

What bottom bracket is used on the Firebird 29?

Pressfit BB92 bottom bracket

Can I mount a chainguide on my Firebird 29?

Yes. The Firebird 29 features ISCG05 mounts on the frame and all Firebird 29 bikes from Pivot come with a front chainguide. Most upper guides on the market will fit but compatibility is dependent on the Q factor of the crank. Narrow 168mm Q Factor cranks will have clearance issues with some of the more popular guides on the market.

What headset do I need for the Firebird 29?

The Firebird 29 uses a ZS (zero stack) 49.6mm top and can also accept a standard 1.5 external top cup. This large upper cup design provides more room for riders wanting to experiment with angleset™ headsets to adjust front end geometry. The lower (bottom) cup is a (zero stack) 56mm size.

What is the thread pitch on the rear axle?

Pivot uses a 1.5 thread pitch on the rear thru axle. Most Shimano compatible axle should work as well if you somehow manage to lose your Pivot or DT Swiss rear axle and need something compatible to keep you going.

Can I run a water bottle on the Firebird 29?

Yes, you can mount a water bottle cage under the base of the downtube.

Is the Firebird 29 Di2 compatible?

No, the Firebird 29 is not Di2 compatible. It has a Di2 battery port and Pivot’s Cable Port System for simple routing but the frame does not feature the Di2 wiring holes between the front triangle and swingarm. Pivot does not endorse drilling holes in your frame. It is possible to externally route the wire to the rear derailleur but it will not have the same level of integration as some of our other models.

F9CV1-BLU-DI2-BATTERY

How large of a rotor will fit on the Firebird 29?

The Firebird 29 will fit a 180mm rotor without an adaptor. A 203mm rotor with an adapter will also fit.

What travel fork can I use on my Firebird 29?

The Firebird 29 was designed for a 170mm travel fork. We use a 170mm fork in all our complete bike builds. The maximum travel length that can be used on the Firebird 29 is 180mm travel.

What is the fork offset on the Firebird 29?

44mm

What is the eye-to-eye shock length and stroke length on the Firebird 29?

The Firebird 29’s metric shock has a 230mm eye-to-eye length and 65mm stroke.

If I want to run a different brand of shock on my Firebird 29, what else do I need to know?

The Firebird 29 shock uses M8 through bolt hardware on both the front and rear. Shock spacer dimensions are 22mm wide front and rear. We typically run medium valving on the compression side (depending on rider weight) and medium rebound damping.

Can I put a coil-over shock on my Firebird 29?

Although the Firebird 29 features a rising rate design that functions with coil-over shocks, the clevis design adds additional leverage to the shock shaft and internal piston bushing that can result in premature wear of the shock or in the case of some shock brands, a total failure of the shock shaft so we do not recommend running a coil-over. For maximum performance and durability, we recommend staying with the Pivot spec’d FOX Float X2 shock (or DPX2 on our race builds). The FOX Float X2 air shock, Rock Shox Super Delux or Vivid Air and most any other DH based air shock design features a tunable spring curve for better overall performance with the Firebird 29’s linkage design. The Pivot Factory Racing DH World Cup team has the option of running either the FOX X2 air or coil and each member of the Pivot Factory Racing team has found the air shock to offer better performance and control and ultimately faster times on the race course. If you absolutely insist on running a coil-over shock on your Firebird 29, then either run the FOX X2 and be prepared to service the shock at short intervals to prevent failure and potential damage to the frame or the PUSH industries ElevenSIX shock which features an oversize shock shaft and bushing, as well as a captured spring at both ends of the shock. If you choose to run this shock, it is the user’s responsibility to follow the tune guidelines that PUSH provides and also service the shock at much shorter intervals. Any frame damage occurring due to shock failure from using any shock other than the Pivot supplied FOX Float X2 or DPX2 will not be covered under warranty.

As demand for e-bikes continues to surge, Powerfly answers the call with a complete lineup of pedal-assist mountain bikes including Trek’s exclusive new Removable Integrated Battery “RIB”. It fully integrates the Bosch 500Wh PowerTube battery into the down tube, but it’s still super easy to remove or install the battery thanks to the one-piece cover and built-in handle.

Powerfly is still offered in three families: Hardtail, Full Suspension (130mm), and Long Travel (150mm), but now we’re offering carbon models in the Long Travel lineup. We’re also offering a Powerfly Sport hardtail model that comes fully accessorised with fenders, rack, kickstand, and lights. For female riders looking for a better fit or different aesthetic, we have several Women’s models with lower standover on smaller sizes, narrower handlebars, and women’s-specific saddles.

There are major spec upgrades throughout the line, including more robust forks, more powerful 4-piston brakes, and tougher tyres. With Trek’s proven mountain bike frame technology, these pedal-assist bikes ride like true performance mountain bikes for more confident handling on the trails.

What’s new with the 2019 Trek Powerfly line-up?

As e-bikes continue to evolve, so does Powerfly. While the 4-level models carry forward last year’s semiintegrated frame, all other models feature Trek’s exclusive new Removable Integrated Battery, or RIB. The Bosch PowerTube 500 battery is fully integrated into the side of the downtube. It looks great and makes the frame compatible with a water bottle cage, but the biggest benefit is the convenience. Unlike other fully integrated batteries, RIB is simple to remove and re-install with a one-piece battery and frame cover – no tools or complicated parts.

Powerfly is still offered as three distinct families: Hardtail, Full Suspension (130mm) and Long Travel (150mm), but now we’re offering two carbon models in the Long Travel line-up. OCLV Mountain Carbon offers cleaner aesthetics, a quieter ride and easier handling thanks to lower weight. We’re also offering a Powerfly Sport hardtail model that comesfully accessorised with fenders, rack, kickstand and lights for those customers who want to use their Powerfly as a go-anywhere SUV.

Major spec upgrades include:

  • A more robust RockShox Revelation fork on Powerfly FS 7
  • More powerful 4-piston disc brakes on all Powerfly LT models
  • Tougher Bontrager XR4 tyres on all Plus models

Most brands have integrated batteries now. Why is Trek’s Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system better?

Trek took great pains to create the most user-friendly electric mountain bike. In most systems, the battery drops out of the bottom of the downtube. The problem with that is they’re prone to falling in the dirt and the underside of the downtube is where all the dirt and mud collects. Digging through miles of grime to get to your battery is not fun.

The RIB system accesses the battery on the drive-side of the downtube. It’s cleaner. Most people set their bike down or lean it on a wall on the non-drive side to remove the battery. Accessing the battery on the drive-side of the downtube is easier than reaching under the bike to pull out your battery.

On some integrated electric bikes, the in-tube battery and the frame cover are two pieces. The RIB system is a one-piece battery and frame cover. Simply turn the key and the one-piece battery pops out. Grab it by the integrated handle and carry it away. Then it’s just as easy to pop it back in.

The Trek RIB system is ingenious in its simplicity. You spend less time fussing with your bike and more time riding.

What’s the difference between 2019 Trek Powerfly FS and Powerfly LT? What’s the best 2019 Trek Powerfly for you?

The 130mm Powerfly FS balances comfortable, efficient climbing with confident handling on descents and corners for the best overall trail bike feel. The 150mm Powerfly LT offers added downhill capability with more travel, more stable handling and more robust parts.

If you want a pedal-assist bike with full-suspension comfort and control for exploring on longer trail rides, then the 130mm Powerfly FS.

If you want a pedal-assist bike to help you get to their favourite descents with less effort, then the 150mm Powerfly LT. It’s more capable on steep, challenging terrain.

What’s the difference between Powerfly and Powerfly Women’s?

2019 Trek Powerfly Women’s models have the same high-performance frame technology and geometry as the mainline Powerfly hardtail. The three smallest sizes feature curved top tubes for lower standover height that makes mounting and dismounting easier for shorter riders. The Women’s models also come with women’s specific saddles, narrower handlebars and an alternate colour.

What isthe maximum tyre size for each frame platform?

The 130mm full suspension (FS) bikes and 150mm long travel (LT) bikes can accept up to 27.5×2.8” tyres. The 17.5” and larger size hardtail models can accept up to 29×2.4” or 27.5×2.8” tyres. The 15.5” and smaller hardtails will not fit 29” tyres, but can accommodate 27.5×2.8” tyres.

What if I need to replace the battery or battery cover?

Powerfly’s use a stock Bosch Powertube battery. The frame cover and battery are one-piece, but can be separated with an Allen key. Trek will sell frame covers through Trek retailers for replacement or for those that want to have a second battery that can be swapped quickly.

Are spare keys available?

Yes. Spare keys are available through the lock manufacturer, ABUS. They’ll need the key code printed on a card that’s included with the bike.

How fast can it go?

It will go as fast as your legs turn the pedals. However, the pedal assist cuts out at 25kph or 20mph.

Is there a way to bypass the speed governor to modify the top assisted speed?

No. It’s part of the programming. Modifying the regulated assisted speed will void the warranty and puts the rider at risk of violating laws governing pedal assist bikes.

Can I ride the bike in the rain or wet conditions? Can I wash it?

Yes. The Bosch system, including the battery, is weatherproof and will function fine in wet conditions. The motor is further protected from mud and stones by Trek’s exclusive Motor Armor that also acts as a skid plate over large obstacles. However, none of the Bosch components should ever be submerged in water or cleaned with a high-pressure hose or power washer.

How long does the battery last?

The 500Wh battery has an approximate range of 130km in Eco mode, and 60km in Turbo mode. Actual range will depend on variousfactors such as rider weight, terrain type, incline grade and individual riding style.

How long does it take to fully charge the battery?

For almost all of our bikes with the 4A charger, from empty to fully charged will take about 4.5 hours. From empty to 50% charged will take only 2 hours. The Powerfly 4 has a 2A charger. The 2A compact charger takes about 7.5 hoursfor a full charge.

Does the battery require any special care?

The battery should never be opened, as doing so not only voids all warranties, but also poses the risk of uncontrolled thermal reactions. Use only the provided Bosch eBike charger, which is specifically matched to the Bosch battery and has the right software for optimal charging and maintenance of the battery. Using any other charger will void the warranty and also risk malfunctions or reduced lifespan. Lithium-ion batteries have neither memory nor self-discharge effects, so the battery can be partially recharged at any time without affecting the service life.

Ibis Cycles Ripmo- U.K- Pricing- Specs- Custom Build- Demo- Finance

Ibis Cycles Ripmo!

Order your Ibis Ripmo today from the U.K’s leading Ibis dealer Blazing Bikes

Ibis Cycles have done it again! Welcome the all new long travel 29er the “Ripmo”.

Ibis Cycles Ripmo

Ibis Cycles Ripmo

The Ripmo has been dubbed the love child of a Ripley and the Mojo HD4, the all-new Ripmo is a big wheeled slasher that’s always down for another lap, whether that means a big climb or a tailgate pad.

What is the Ibis Ripmo?

The Ripmo is a bike we’ve been wanting to make for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley’s balance and speed, coupled with the Mojo HD4′s capabilities when things get hairy. It’s the bike that our Enduro World Series winning team will be using to defend their World Championship crown, so we pulled out all the stops.

Info

With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (160mm front), this is the most versatile bike we’ve ever built.

It also marks a dramatic shift in our approach to geometry. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the EWS Team winning HD4, with clearance for a 175mm dropper, and a pedal-friendly 76° seat tube angle. The end result is a bike that’s ready to rally, while still maintaining lively handling.

Ticking off the boxes, other features include 2.6” tire clearance, short chainstays, a threaded BB, trick internal cable routing and the ability to run both a piggyback reservoir shock and large water bottle.

Geometry

Is there any phrase in mountain biking that’s more overused than “longer and slacker?” Every manufacturer (Ibis included) is guilty of it. It makes bikes descend better but the question is, how far can it be pushed? We felt we were at the limits of that trend until we began experimenting with seat tube angles and fork offset.

By making the seat tube angle a steep 76°, we’ve put more weight over the front tire. This keeps the front end from wandering or washing out. Moving the seat tube forward also required pushing the front end forward to keep the top tube numbers static, resulting in the longer reach.

In addition to the steep seat tube, the Ripmo also uses a fork offset that is shorter than traditionally used. That makes a 65.9° head angle feel like 64.5° without increasing the wheelbase. You get the stability of slack head angle without giving up your ability to go around tighter corners.

The Ripmo geometry enables a new level of confidence and speed, bringing the stability of the EWS Team Championship winning HD4 to 29” wheels.

2.6” Tyre Clearance

With a platform as versatile as the Ripmo, you should be able to run whatever tyres you want. We pioneered the wide rim revolution and we’re partial to the new crop of 2.6” tyres. When paired with our 35mm internal width rims, these high volume monsters can be run at eerily low pressures, delivering mo’ traction without getting squirrly.

Bushings where you need them, bearings where you don’t

If you ask an engineer, they’ll tell you that bushings are lower maintenance, stiffer, lighter, and more affordable than bearings. The key is to only use them where it makes sense.

Bushings work best in applications with high loads and minimal rotation, two things ball bearings don’t like. That’s why suspension manufacturers use them for shock mounting hardware and why we’ve used them for the past five years on our Ripley, HD3, and HD4 clevis.

High loads and minimal rotation describe the Ripmo lower link pivots so we’re introducing a new link featuring IGUS bushings. The new link is 80g lighter than its ball bearing equipped equivalent, while also being torsionally stiffer. The bushings are shielded from spray, protected by airtight seals and will last a long time.

We believe so strongly in the concept, we’re offering free lifetime replacement on bushings. Have a problem? Call us. We’ll send you a new set.

Long Droppers

What’s better than a dropper post? A longer one. That’s why our frame is designed around a 175mm post (150 mm on a size small), although riders with longer inseams can get away with a 185mm or 200mm post. That clearance also gives you the flexibility to pick frame size based on reach, not standover height.

Internal Cable Tunnels

While all our bikes have internally routed cables, the Ripmo is the first to feature carbon fiber tubes molded inside the frame. Just put the housing through and it pops out the other end, no need for swear words or a pickset.

Tyre Options

Tyre makers now have a range of options with varying tread patterns and casings from 2.4″ – 2.6″, all optimized for 35mm wide rims. With the Ripmo, you can choose the tires that work best for you and have plenty of clearance to boot.

Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT 2018 Electric Mountain Bike

The all new Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT 2018 Electric Mountain Bike available from the U.K’s number one Trek e-bike dealer and demo centre

 Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT 2018 Electric Mountain Bike

Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT 2018 Electric Mountain Bike

Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT 2018 Electric Mountain Bike

As demand for pedal-assist mountain bikes continues to surge, Powerfly stays ahead of the competition with a performance-packed lineup that integrates Bosch’s industry-leading pedal-assist power with Trek’s proven mountain bike technology. The lineup still includes the 130mm Powerfly FS (Full Suspension) and the 150mm Powerfly LT (Long Travel, as well as a full line of hardtails, including Women’s models.

Bosch’s off-road Performance CX system returns with the battery now integrated into the downtube. Integrating the battery isn’t just about the clean, cool looks. With the weight of the battery resting lower in the frame, integration provides better ride quality. Additional upgrades to all models include the low-profile Purion display, a new intuitive e-MTB ride mode, and long-life 500Wh battery.

These updates include Powerfly 4, which uses a carry-forward frame to offer pedal-assist with excellent value. The new hardtails also get Boost hub spacing for increased tire clearance, and even the ability to accommodate plus-sized tires, which come stock on the 9 model. All of the 9-level Powerfly models get maximum electric-assist performance with an optimized e-MTB spec package that includes SRAM’s e-bike specific eX1 drivetrain, Guide RE brakes, and Fox’s e-optimized Float forks. Of course, the full-suspension models feature the Trek technologies that make for the best-handling bikes around, including ABP, EVO Link, and Straight Shot downtube. Both Powerfly LT models also get our exclusive RE:aktiv shock for additional responsiveness and control over more demanding terrain.

“Its sheer thirst for mileage means it’s perfect for the adventurer who wants to run their own uplift, and if that’s your bag then I reckon there are very few tools that will do the job better”.- Bike Radar//

The fascination of eMountain biking

Pure riding enjoyment in every situation – whether uphill or downhill. This takes eMountain biking to a new level. The perfectly delivered power of the Performance Line CX motor and the new eMTB mode introduces a completely new riding sensation.

Key Bosch features on the 2018 Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT:

Bosch Performance CX

Bosch’s Performance CX line is made for rugged off-road use with a maximum torque of up to 75 newton meters, sustained into the high cadence range for sporty acceleration and a sleek mid-mount motor for ideal weight balance and obstacle clearance

With a maximum torque of 75 Nm, the Performance Line CX is the ideal drive for ambitious and demanding eBikers. In eMTB mode, you always receive the required power – from Tour to Turbo. Up to 300% of perfectly delivered support, incredible dynamism and unique grip provide the best possible support on all terrains, as well as improved start-up behaviour. The progressive motor support automatically adapts to the individual’s riding style, so there is no need to change support modes in eMTB mode.

The highlights

Direct flow

Perfect support as soon as you step onto the pedals means that starting on steep slopes is significantly easier.

No trigger

Thanks to the new eMTB mode, there is no need to change support modes, so the rider can concentrate fully on the trail.

Trail Control

Enables effortless riding and optimal traction thanks to improved control, even on challenging uphill sections or when encountering difficult obstacles.

Maximum momentum

A torque of up to 75 Nm ensures sporty acceleration even in alpine terrain, without changing gear.

More walk-assistance power

Stronger support up to speeds of 6 km/h makes pushing your bike much easier. Available from autumn 2017 and backwards compatible for all Performance Line CX systems.

eMTB mode

For a powerful start uphill and in rough terrain. Improved moving-off behaviour guarantees optimal support in all terrains and on any trail. Noticeably easier, sporty starting as soon as you step onto the pedals.

Bosch Power Pack 500

The premium Bosch lithium-ion battery features 500WH and a guaranteed long lifespan. The battery not only ensure long distances, but is also easy to remove and take with you.

The Bosch PowerPack 500 is the same size as and only slightly heavier than the PowerPack 400 but extends the range. The Lithium-ion battery requires about two hours to charge 50% and the PowerPack 500 takes approx. 4.5 hours to charge with the Bosch Standard Charger. In favourable conditions, charged and with the Performance Line Cruise in the mix, tours of up to 90 kilometres are possible. The PowerPack 500 is available for all product lines as a frame or rack battery.

Bosch Purion Display

Bosch’s Purion display features a fully-functional speedometer with a backlit display, service interval indicator and battery range indicator. It’s thoughtful design allows riders to scroll through functions or choose the right level of support while maintaining contact with the handlebars

The highlights:

Clear display-

Charging status, speed, riding mode, range, trip distance, total distance

Optimum legibility-

The display without play lighted from behind enables recognising all riding data.

Service-

The optional service interval display reminds you about fixing the next service appointment for your eBike with the specialist dealer.

Easy diagnosis-

The specialist dealer can monitor the status of your Bosch eBike System via the micro USB interface.

Focus on the essentials-

Five support steps, safe operation with thumbs, neat handle bar.

Off

No support, Purion continues to provide all important information.

Eco

Effective, but gentle support, designed for maximum efficiency for long ranges.

Tour

Uniform support for long stretches, with clear focus on long ranges.

Sport/eMTB*

Immediate, powerful support for sports riding on natural terrain and even in city traffic.

Turbo

Direct and maximum powerful support up to the highest pedalling rates for sports riding.

*The eMTB mode, specially designed for the Performance Line CX, dynamically varies between the Tour and Turbo riding modes, progressive motor support for maximum performance on the trail.

Key features on the 2018 Trek Powerfly FS 9 LT over other brands on the market:

Alpha Platinum Aluminium

Our premium lightweight aluminium is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strenght and minimum weight

Motor Armour

This unique protection shield made of lightweight yet robust aluminium protects the motor against stones

Boost

Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) gives you the stiffness of a 27.5″ wheel with all the benefits of a 29″ wheel, and Boost 148 at the back lets you run wider tyres and a larger chain ring without affecting Q-Factor and pedaling efficiency

Straight Shot with Knock Block

Trek’s all new Straight Shot frame design featuring Knock Block frame defence optimises stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride

ABP (Active Braking Pivot)

Our patented Active Braking Pivot allows your suspension to work freely whether you’re on the brakes or off. It’s smooth, controlled suspension that’s at its best all the time

G2 Geometry

Advance frame geometry and a custom offset fork give our 29ers (and plus) precise handling at low speed without compromising high-speed stability. We call it G2 Geometry and it’s why our 29ers (and plus) handle better than anyone else’s

RE:aktiv

RE:aktiv brings Formula 1 technology to mountain bike suspension. A Trek Exclusive.

Better flow, better ride:

Any mountain biker understands the bliss that comes with zeroing in on the trail and nothing else. No outside distractions—including inconsistent suspension performance. That’s what it’s all about. More flow is RE:aktiv’s greatest gift.

You’ll accelerate as aggressively as you can without losing efficiency to pedal bob. You’ll confidently take gnarly, technical lines knowing that your rear shock will provide an instant, supple response. You’ll feel the difference of a shock that immediately transitions from soft to firm as you fly out of corners. You’ll experience the beauty of simply being in the moment.

RE:aktiv does exactly what you need it to do, exactly when you need it to. No more adjustments on the trail, no more choice between efficiency or control—pure confidence and enjoyment no matter what the trail brings you.

Set and forget:

RE:aktiv was designed to complement existing suspension settings, such as climb and trail modes. RE:aktiv can function effectively in all three settings, allowing you to simply pick the proper setting and let her rip. Wouldn’t it be nice to no longer interrupt your flow to flip between suspension settings during a ride? It simply makes the shock better all the time.
