Taking our proven High Pivot Trifecta suspension system and One Ride geometry and turning it up to eleven, the 154mm travel Dreadnought represents a bike for the risk-takers and senders out there. Boasting an unmatched and unrivalled level of composure and balance, boosted further by the slack 63.5-degree head angle and proportional rear centres, that grow 14mm per-size, our industry-leading One Ride geometry also delivers a consistent ride experience across the size spectrum. Confident in the face of adversity, the Dreadnought is a bike quite unlike any other before it. Ziggy Link compatible, dual crown ready and open to interpretation, dream building a Dreadnought knows no bounds and neither does it.
BIGGER, BURLIER AND READY FOR ANYTHING, THIS MOUNTAIN TAMING BRUISER OF A BICYCLE KNOWS NO BOUND, AND NEITHER WILL YOU. EXPANDING OUR CATEGORY DEFYING HIGH PIVOT DESIGN FROM THE DRUID AND APPLYING IT TO A PLATFORM FOR THE EXTREMES. A DH BIKE IN ALL BUT THE SMALL PRINT, READY FOR THE ROWDIEST BACK-COUNTRY LINES, THE STEEPEST RACE STAGES AND THE SHADIEST GAPS IN THE BIKE PARK. BRING THE BIG GUNS, BRING THE DREADNOUGHT AND FEAR NOTHING.
As the heart of any frame, the quality of the carbon construction is paramount to both ride quality and durability. To this end, we partnered with one of the leading manufacturers in the business which allows us to stand behind our product 100%.
Our hardware is a testament to our attention to detail, from the forged Rate Control linkages to the custom stainless steel screws that hold everything together, we have spared no expense in the finishing of the Dreadnought leaving nothing to chance.
ZIGGY LINK COMPATIBLE
Mullet curious or a die-hard convert, the Dreadnought shares the same Rate Control Linkage system as its little brother, the Druid, and therefore accepts our ‘corner slaying conversion kit’, also known as Ziggy Link.
We don’t discriminate against rightys or leftys and our adaptable cable routing allows you to neatly route the Dreadnought’s cables and hoses no matter where in the world you come from or with what hand you operate your rear brake with.
REAR SHOCK COMPATIBILITY
The Dreadnought comes equipped with either a custom-tuned Push ElevenSix, EXT Storia Lok V3 or Fox X2 shock, but if your heart is set on something else, we’ll have you covered soon as we add more options, including custom-tuned RockShox and Öhlins units in due course.
WATER BOTTLE FITMENT
Even our smallest Dreadnought frame size can fit a full-size 26oz water bottle, regardless of your rear shock reservoir. Remember, hydration is your friend, but sweaty backs most definitely are not.
A quiet bike is a fast bike and a clean bike is less prone to problems, so we developed a full suite of custom frame protection to keep the noisy bits quiet, the hard to clean bits free from crud and that precious carbon protected from flying debris.
CHAIN GUIDE SOLUTION
All that high pivot goodness requires a solid chain retention solution so we turned to the chainguide experts over at ethirteen to develop a retention system specifically for the Dreadnought.
The ‘under the top tube’ mounting screws allow for the attachment of various accessory mounting solutions; pump, tools, a banana, the kitchen sink, go crazy, just don’t hang a water bottle there, please.
Embracing standards with actual benefits, such as a threaded 73mm BB, 148mm rear hub spacing, a 31.6mm seatpost, a ZS44/ZS56 headset and a 205 x 65 Trunnion shock, will take the headache out of piecing together your Dreadnought dream build.
