The Canadian Multi-Tool.

The Chilcotin has been on trails for 3 years now, and still seems to elude any specific categorization. It does everything well. You can build it sub-30 as your all-day any-trail any-time 'one bike'; or beef it out a bit, throw it into slack mode and blow doors on your full face friends down the sketchiest park lines.

We love this bike for obvious reasons: aggressive & adjustable geometry gives the Chilcotin multiple personality disorder, and you reap the benefits. Plush & active suspension provided by our infamous Four x 4 patented suspension design, and an uber-stiff chassis. This frame is cleared for take-off with a 180mm fork, so feel free to enter Crankworx on your Chilcotin, and we promise the bike won’t be holding you back at all. 

It's a trail bike. It's an all-mountain bike. It's an enduro bike. It's a park bike. It's a mini DH bike. Best of all.... it's a Knolly.  

Key features include:

- 26" wheels
- 160mm travel
- Traction maximized by Knolly's own Fourby4 suspension system
- 6066 series alloy frameset is extensively hydroformed
