 “I have yet to find the limits of the new Podium…especially in the corners.”  - James Doerfling / Knolly Team Rider, Red Bull Rampage Finalist

This quote should scare a few of you, and excite the rest of you.

Noel has outdone himself with this one, plain and simple. The all new Podium is simply the most technologically advanced design in the history of the company, period. From the extensive hydro-forming, one-piece tubular chainstay, custom titanium fasteners, built-in fork bumpers, to the patented & proprietary 4xFour suspension design... the new Podium has all the bells & whistles to satisfy the most discerning riders. Our standard builds are tipping the scales at a svelte 36 pounds. Once this bike is up to speed, the Podium is going to push you further as a rider than you might be comfortable with. You'd better start training. Key features include:

- 26" wheels
- 215mm travel
- Traction maximized by Knolly's own Fourby4 suspension system
- 6066 series alloy frameset is extensively hydroformed
- New School geometry - Long reach, Low bb height and standover
- Main pivots rotate on highest quality angular contact catridge bearings
- Low stress pivot locations rotate on long lasting IGUS bushings
- 12x157 rear axle spacing
- Threaded BB for creak-free riding and simple installation
- ISCG05 tabs are removeable and replaceable
- Knolly's custom 'black ti' pivot fasteners keep things tight and classy
- Built-in fork bumpers
