one bike that can do-it-all, blindside…
Trying to create one bike that can do-it-all is almost impossible due to how diverse people’s riding styles are. The new Blindside comes about as close as you can get if you are the type of rider that loves to ride big mountain lines and bike parks like Whistler but also need to rally local singlestrack. You won’t win any XC races on a Blindside but you do get a very quick big mountain bike that loves to jump, corner and can pedal all day.
The suspension utilizes a large 2.75″ stroke shock for super low leverage and features a slightly progressive leverage rate curve that gives excellent consistent leverage throughout the travel allowing the natural progressiveness of the shock to ramp up perfectly. This means great small bump sensitivity that allows you to use your travel without any harsh bottoming out issues.
The frame features our travel adjustment chip system for adjustments between 6.5 and 7.5″ of travel. For tubing we offer our very own custom formed tubing that uses internal gussets and shaped to mate perfectly to our tapered headtube. We finish it off with double smooth welding at the headtube junction for added strength. Cable routing is an absolute dream on the Blindside and about as clean as you can get, especially with our internal chainstay derailleur routing.
