Dream Trail:

Finally, the big cat is completely out of the bag. It’s been a while since our prototype DH bike was first spotted on the WC stage under Connor Fearon. Since then we’ve been honing every detail and specification to ensure this bike is comprised purely of the material needed to deliver a fighter jet of a downhill mountain bike. There is no filler here, folks. This bike is designed and built for a single purpose: Get you down the hill faster.

So, what happens when you ride a bike with the industry’s most refined high pivot design equipped with 205mm of rear wheel travel? You remain composed and comfortable across the knottiest root balls and rowdiest rock gardens. You develop a new penchant for committing to corner speeds and line choices that old-you would never dream of. You go in over your head and get out with a shit-eating grin. You get a DH bike with zero compromises.

You get Supernought.

V2 Frame Layout

V2 Frame Layout

The V2 Trifecta Platform allows us to fine tune kinematics for each bike. Our Factory Team wanted more sensitivity and grip. So we delivered a DH optimized leverage curve and braking characteristics. The end result is a bike that begs you to stay off the brakes a little longer and remains completely composed when the anchors are dropped.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Limited Lifetime Warranty

We stand behind the products we make. That’s why all our bikes are backed by the Forbidden Limited Lifetime Frame Warranty.

The bearing-in-rocker design of our new forged Rate Control Linkage allows us to use locking collet axles and oversized bearings for easy maintenance and dependability. This option isn’t the lightest but trading a few grams for a long-lasting, easily serviced linkage, is a no-brainer.

Idler Pulley System

Idler Pulley System

The Supernought sports an 18-tooth steel idler equipped with a solid lube bearing out of the box. The optimized tooth profile and our next-gen Race Guide are built to last and limit chain drop.

Modular Drop Outs

Modular Drop Outs

Straight from the World Cup pits. By using modular dropouts we’ve added another level of performance tuning to your ride. Dropouts are easily swapped for different wheel sizes as well as meaningful geometry and weight bias adjustments.

Frame Protection

Frame Protection

A quiet bike is a fast bike and a clean bike is less prone to problems, so we developed a full suite of custom frame protection to keep the noisy bits quiet and the hard to clean bits free from crud.

Cable Routing

Cable Routing

The rear brake line is routed externally for quick and easy removal, servicing, and replacement. Derailleur cable and housing are cleverly secured by the bump stop on the head tube and a clamping cable port at the seatstay to eliminate rattling.
