Warden

$5,199.00 USD Sale Save

The NEW Knolly Warden was designed for tech Enduro and freeride lines. It returns as a dedicated MX model featuring 170mm of travel, a fresh new look & an S1/XS size option because we know short queens/kings want a big travel mountain bike, too. This freeride model serves as your one-bike quiver for all-mountain post-work laps or big MTB bike park days.

Complete bikes ship unassembled & require a full build. Spec is subject to change without notice. If you have any questions, contact us at info@knollybikes.com.
