The original aim of the Switchback was to design the most playful natured and confidence inspiring aggressive frame that we possibly could. The Switchback Ti is an evolution of this ethos.
Designed around the 27.5” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Switchback Ti has our custom designed Yoke that creates space in the chain stays to accommodate large volume, deep tread 2.4” tyres on 27.5” wheels or 2.8” Plus tyres on super wide plus 27.5” rims, while not effecting the incredibly short 415mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometry! The 415mm chain stay length plus the bottom bracket height, head angle and reach measurement gives you an amazingly responsive and agile ride.
Expect to leave the abstract idea that “you’ll be faster on a full sus” behind you, as the Switchback Ti will have you leaving your full-sus in the garage!
The geometry has been optimised to help the rider feel confident on difficult, technical Enduro style terrain, while giving the ideal riding position to express your style and flare on the trail. The frame is designed to suit modern fitments such as a Stealth Dropper compatible seat tube and a 44mm head tube for tapered steerer compatibility and full internal top tube routing.
