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
Reliable, affordable, and capable of nearly erasing roots and rocks. We love hardtails, but there's no denying the benefits of full-suspension mountain bikes—the added comfort and control. Unfortunately, dualies often add another thing: more dollar signs to the price tag. That's not the case here. The Atroz utilizes sealed cartridge bearings in an understated single-pivot design to deliver smooth, durable performance. The Atroz 2 ups the ante with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Suntour air-sprung rear suspension and an easy-to-operate single-ring drivetrain—features you usually find on bikes with a whole lot more dollar signs on their price tags.
A durable design and the latest innovations, all in a single package. With the Atroz 3, we took the proven and refined single-pivot full-suspension design and upped the ante in a big way. It's a full RockShox affair when it comes to suspension, including the five-inch-travel Recon RL air-sprung fork with 32mm stanchions and a thru-axle. Likewise, we outfitted this model with SRAM's SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain—all the simplicity and durability of a single-ring drivetrain, with the low gearing you once needed a front derailleur to obtain. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, and we finished the bike off with a Race Face Chester bar and stem combo.
"Adventure bikes" are often plodding beasts of burden that sacrifice thrills in the pursuit of extra stability. Well, where's the adventure in that? We went a different route entirely. By adding 2.8-inch-wide, plus-size tires to our Level Link suspension, we've created a bike that absolutely rips on tight trails, but does so with the extra grip and control of a plus-size bike. Voilà—adventure made awesome. We gave the Catch a slack-but-not-too-slack front end. We wanted control on fast descents, but we weren't willing to give up maneuverability on tight trails. A SRAM SX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain gives you the gearing to tackle any terrain, and TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes bring this machine to a tidy stop. If you're looking to tackle rough terrain and want the ultimate in control without sacrificing the thrill of riding, the Catch is your bike.
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.
The Release 29 2 is the lankier sibling of the Release and Catch full-suspension mountain bikes. Designed for high-mileage days with a high shred factor, this aluminum trail ripper 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 that our Level Link bikes have become known for. The Fox Float DPS Performance shock is outfitted with an EVOL LV air sleeve for excellent responsiveness and a bottomless feel to soak up the worst on steep, technical terrain. A 140mm travel Fox Rhythm 34 fork, Shimano SLX drivetrain, and hydraulic stoppers let you stay focused, no matter what the trail dishes out.
When you spend hours in the saddle getting to a jaw-dropping descent, your bike should 100 percent rip. Those are the days for the Release 29 3. This aluminum trail bike is built on the same 130mm-travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings, the Release and Catch. We've adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude of all our Level Link bikes. A Shimano XT drivetrain paired with Shimano XT cranks provides crisp shifts and unflinching power transfer. The Fox Performance Float DPX2 rear shock offers improved performance on the most aggressive descents plus a greater compression adjustment range. For truly hairy descents, the 140mm travel Fox 34 Performance fork and Shimano XT brakes keep you laser-focused.
Built for tackling tough climbs that lead into fast, steep, technical descents. The Release 4C features the same bottomless-feeling rear suspension and deft handling as our aluminum Release models, but with an even lighter, stiffer chassis built from carbon fiber. It starts with our Level Link suspension system, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs, meaning the suspension doesn't bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush on technical descents. For smooth bump-eating performance, the Release 4C is equipped with a Fox Float DPS EVOL LV rear shock and a 150mm travel Fox 36 Performance Float fork. SRAM's NX Eagle 12-speed single-ring drivetrain provides consistent shifting and, thanks to its 50-tooth granny gear, makes short work of pesky climbs. SRAM G2 R brakes keep you slicing through the most technical lines all day long.
We pulled out all the stops on our flagship full-suspension trail bike. You can't have it all…Really? Nobody told that to the Release 5C. Our top-shelf trail bike is the embodiment of new-school technology. Thanks to our Level Link suspension, the Release 5 C absolutely levels the kind of drops and rock gardens that stymie bikes with even more suspension travel. At the same time, our patent-pending design allows the Release to accelerate and climb with the kind of blazing efficiency you'd normally expect from a wispy, featherweight race rig. The Release 5C, in a nutshell, is the perfect all-rounder. The bike's modern geometry—long in the front, short in the rear, low in the bottom bracket—lends the bike stability at high speeds without sacrificing agility when the trails get tight. What's more, we've decked this machine out with a peerless parts kit that includes the absolutely bomber Fox 36 Performance Elite Float fork and Fox Performance Elite Float DPX2 rear shock, an ultra-precise SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, a wheelset with e*thirteen LG1 EN rims and Novatec hubs, and quick-stopping SRAM G2 RS hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors. A KS LEV Integra dropper post and Race Face cockpit components round out the stellar package.
