Fugitive 138

$2,699.00 USD Sale Save

The Knolly Fugitive 138 is a versatile 29er trail bike. It's an efficient climber while still being super capable on descents.


  • Patented Knolly Fourby4 suspension designed to maximize rear shock performance and available traction in every situation, no matter how crazy things get. It reduces brake “squat” and enables your wheel to maintain contact with the ground to maximize your speed through the most challenging terrain. 
  • 157Trail rear hub spacing which uses the wide flange 157 hubs with 73mm BB shells. This spacing provides the most options for tire size and can easily clear tire widths up to 2.6 and heel clearance is exceptional and chainring clearance remains huge at 36T. 
  • Knolly’s legendary pedaling traction to ensure performance - even in the jank - so you can get on the gas when you need to eliminate another second off your time. 
  • Patented offset straight seat tube design (OSD) which allows you to transition effectively between a highly efficient pedaling position and the “attack position” required for aggressive riding. You can drop the saddle on the downs, which is critical in allowing maximum rear wheel travel while keeping the back wheel away from the seat tube under full compression. This design allows us to run 200+mm dropper posts because our seat tubes are straight and un-interrupted.
  • Human-centric sizing to fit a broad range of riders.

Knolly Bikes started as a pursuit – driven by our love of riding – to design the highest performance, best possibly manufactured, most innovative products available. Over the past decade, we have built our reputation on manufacturing quality, performance innovation and customer service.
