Our new Fugitive features significant changes to the geo with an increased reach, adjusted seat tube angle, and a slacker head tube angle. All of these changes culminate into the rider being more in-the-bike of this versatile 29er.

Updated Geo

The front end geometry gets a complete overhaul and the head angle is reduced by 0.5 degrees, the seat tube angle is increased a full degree and the effective top tube length is lengthened proportionally for each frame size. All of these changes contribute to a substantial increase in reach and wheelbase, providing a roomier cockpit while improving high speed stability and allowing the rider to be in a more aggressive position. The steeper seat tube angle and increased reach makes it feel even more competent and comfortable on long steep climbs. While the Fugitive is still a highly proficient technical trail bike, we didn't want to remove the "trail" from its abilities.

More travel

We’ve bumped up the travel slightly and the Fugitive now features 138mm of rear travel and 150mm on the front for balanced performance. After seeing many of our riders over-fork the previous Fugitive, the geometry improvements now allow for better compatibility with 160mm forks. For those riders seeking a burly adventurous set up with a little less travel, the Fugitive can also run 131mm of rear travel and a 140mm fork.

Our patented Fourby4 suspension is 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. And our legendary pedalling traction ensures performance - even in the jank - so you can get on the gas when you need to eliminate another second off your time.

157Trail

We feature 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. With 157Trail, heel clearance is exceptional and chainring clearance remains huge at 36T.

OSD

Our patented offset straight seat tube design (OSD) allows our riders to transition effectively between a highly efficient pedaling position and the “attack position” required for aggressive riding. It enables the rider to drop the saddle on the downs and 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.
