The Switchback 631 Next Gen is the answer to your requests!
The original aim of the Switchback was to design the most playful natured and confidence inspiring aggressive frame that we possibly could. The Switchback 631 Next Gen is a development of this platform, taking into consideration the requests of customers and the markets advances.
Designed around the 27.5” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Switchback 631 Next Gen 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 affecting the incredibly short 415mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometries!
The frame is available in both regular and long in both the 16.5” and 18” frames. It also has our custom designed swopouts, giving you the ability to run 12×142 or boost, standard QR or single speed.
The 415mm chain stay length plus the bottom bracket height, head angle and reach measurement gives you an amazingly responsive and agile ride. This frame rails corners and descends like no other hardtail on the market. Expect to leave the abstract idea that “you’ll be faster on a full sus” behind you, as the new Switchback will have you leaving your full-sus in the garage!
The geometry of the Switchback 631 Next Gen 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.
