Maiden

Quick Specs
  • Designed For Downhill
  • F. Travel 200 MM
  • R. Travel 200 MM
  • Wheel Size 27.5" (26" ready)

Run to the hills. The Maiden was designed from the ground up to perform at the highest levels of big mountain freeriding, World Cup racing, and bike park blasting.

Its all-carbon frame pedals efficiently and has increased braking control, while the RIDE-4™ provides precise geometry adjustments. For smaller riders and the #26aintdead crowd, our Equalized wheel system allows riders to use 26" wheels without geometry or suspension compromises.

Technologies: Maiden Carbon Frameset

    • There are advantages to different wheel sizes in different situations. Our Equalized wheel concept allows riders to choose their preference without compromising steering dynamics. Other companies simply provide two axle positions, which negatively affects BB height and fork trail. Instead, our Equalized system uses a headtube spacer in conjunction with two rear axle positions to maintain optimized geometry and handling regardless of which wheel size is used.

    • Size Specific tune

      Suspension

      Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Our design team does custom shock tunes based on real world field testing, and adjusts each tune for specific frame sizes.

    • Pipelock™ collet

      Frame Construction

      Pipelock™ collets expand radially and lock into the frame, creating the widest and most rigid pivot stance possible. Using Pipelock collets allows us to lower our front triangle pivot-weights while maximizing lateral stiffness.

    • Smoothlink™ suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.

    • Smoothwall™ carbon

      Frame Construction

      Smoothwall™ carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.

    • The RIDE-4™ adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry with a pair of Allen keys. Four configurations are possible thanks to one rotating chip. This allows for subtle geometry changes with minimal effect on your shock tune. Geometry setup is a complex artform with huge variables in rider style, preference, terrain, and ability. We do recommend the use of professional services, but we also believe that learning to dial in your own bike is the best way to fully understand its performance.  When adjusting your RIDE-4™ position, make gradual, incremental changes, take notes, and be methodical. Don’t adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process. RIDE-4™ Setup Guides EnduroSlayer
