Bringing back the Endorphin: a New Aesthetic in a Fun-Sized Package

Bringing back the Endorphin: a New Aesthetic in a Fun-Sized Package

Posted by Noel Buckley on

The Endorphin is our first model that sets the tone for our 6th Generation of bike models to be released in the next year. With a straight top tube design, Enduro bearings on all pivots, and a one-piece link driving the shock, this launch features massive updates, with over 80% of the bike being changed from the outgoing generation.

In addition, the Endorphin has been designed for fun-sized people ranging in height from 4’11-5’10. It was developed from the ground up to suit riders with smaller inseams, who are seeking a playful trail bike that isn’t gender specific. There is also a new size range that spans from x-small to a limited production of large frames, allowing the Endorphin to cater to a broad range of heights and riding needs. And riders can tune their fit and preference, with a choice between dual 27.5 or MX options.

  • Wheels: Full 27.5 or MX 29 (to fit a full range of riders)
  • Rear travel: 150mm (27.5) or 135mm (MX)
  • Fork: 160mm (27.5”) or 140mm (MX) 
  • Straight top tube - better standover and improved aesthetics
  • Unified monoblock rocker link - working in collaboration with the lower swing link; increased rigidity and lessens lateral stresses on shock mount
  • Flat tooling bearing locations - makes servicing bearings easier
  • Size specific chainstay length - creates a better balance bike and better fit for tall and short riders
  • SRAM UDH compatibility
  • Supports long dropper posts (175mm - 210mm in all frame sizes) for a wide range of inseam lengths
  • Mounts for tools (under the top tube) 
  • Lower shock mount features 30mm axle to work with Fox Roller Bearing Shock hardware kits
  • Post Mount 180mm rear brake mounts
  • 157Trail rear end spacing- brings improved rear end stability
