Future Shock Technology

By cushioning the rider, rather than the bike, Future Shock technology increases bike control and efficiency, while reducing fatigue, so you can pedal farther and faster on more challenging terrain than you think possible. Born from decades of innovation and the Smoother is Faster philosophy, Future Shock was created to develop bicycles that win on cobblestones, but found its purest expression on dirt. The adjustable and cushioned front travel of 20mm allows you to stay in control and focus while protecting your hands, arms and shoulders from blows. Cushioning the rider with adjustable travel of 20mm front and 30mm rear, Future Shock technology absorbs shock to increase control and capacity, while maintaining the efficiency and responsiveness of a rigid frame. Efficiency, comfort and control make the bike light, agile and responsive.

20mm of front travel: Future 2.0 shock absorber
Hydraulic cushioning to quickly and effectively eat the roughness of the road without "bobbing". On-the-fly adjustment at your fingertips. The fork remains stiff for precise and agile handling.

30mm of rear travel: Future rear shock
Fully adjustable according to the rider's weight, height and riding style. On-the-fly adjustment at your fingertips. The rear triangle remains stiff for crisp power transfer. Compatible with the dropout, without drawbacks.

Space for 47mm tires and SWAT ™: Absurd capacity
47 mm on a 700c wheel and 2.1 "on a 650B. The SWAT ™ internal compartment puts everything you need right where you need it. Geometry that amplifies the safety offered by Future Shock technology.
