Dare



Enduro/Freeride/Downhill



200mm Front/200mm Rear



For those that truly dare, look no further. The Dare is tailored for the sickest fall-line descents, the rowdiest root-smacked boulder gardens, and for top speed attacks on wide open terrain. The 27.5” wheels ensure the best blend of low rolling resistance with stiffness for serious downhill fun. The 200mm of front and rear travel provides a perfect complement to the ACTIVE Energy Efficient Suspension to create world-beating pedalling efficiency and bump absorption.


The graphics and frame shapes on the carbon fiber Dare are as bold as your line choices down the mountain. Aesthetic aside, the Dare is all about big riding, and that’s where the ACTIVE suspension really shines. The inherent efficiency is a result of the decoupling of the suspension from braking and drivetrain forces. This means that it is fully reactive to bump input from the trail at all times. Foot deep whoops in front of the biggest berm on the line? No problem. The Dare allows you to ride harder and deeper into turns to carry more speed out of the apex. Gruesome pedalling sections on the course? The efficiency and neutral behavior of ACTIVE allows you to have the rear shock dialled for all-out bump absorption, yet the bike still pedals beautifully under extreme efforts.


The Dare employs a hassle-free, fully internal routing system to shield your hoses and cables from the elements, and a tapered head tube ensures strength and stability for your steering system. It takes a 30.9mm seatpost, a 73mm English threaded bottom bracket, and a Boost 12x148mm thru-axle rear hub. The frameset comes with a Cane Creek 1-1/8 - 1-1/2” semi-integrated headset and a Hex Taper 12x148mm rear thru-axle. It is recommended for use with a 200mm front suspension fork.


Dare to find your limits.
