High Pivot LTS

Originated on our Downhill World Cup winning Fury, High Pivot LTS delivers the utmost controlled and inspiring suspension performance making riders faster anywhere. Geometry and kinematics are designed and tailored to increase stability at any speed and maximize performance by eliminating pedal kickback and having an incredible amount of control under heavy braking.

Added Adjustability

Dropout flip chip provides +/-10mm of wheelbase allowing riders to choose between 435mm or 445mm lengths. Increasing wheelbase length provides a more stable ride on fast, sustained descents, whereas a shorter wheelbase allows for a more playful and responsive ride.

Ruckus Management

Integrated chain guide prevents unwanted chain drops in rough conditions and custom chainstay and seat stay protection keeps the bike quiet so you can focus on what's in front of you instead of underneath.
