Tech Highlights: Meet the all-new Altitude

Even faster than before with increased stiffness and a lower centre of gravity, the new Altitude’s ride performance is next level. How is it achieved? Let’s dive into the technology behind this awesome bike with Enduro racer Remi Gauvin and Product Manager Ken Perras in the newest episode of Between Two Wheels:

Highlights of the technology in the new Altitude

LC2R™ Suspension Design

First found on the 2006 Slayer and later the Flatline, the LC2R™ (Low Centre Counter Rotating) Suspension returns, refined for the all-new Altitude. The ride feel is efficient and supportive yet responsive and quiet. Expect maximum traction, comfort, and performance. Read more...

Built for Speed

Shorter links, oversized bearings, and a one-piece rear triangle ups the stiffness to support the rider at higher speeds. Using three different rear triangles across our size range now allows us to fine-tune the rear centre lengths per size and further tune the size small frame to perform better with lighter riders.

All-Out Adjustability

The integration of a reach adjust headset allows you to fine-tune your ride with neutral 0mm, or +/- 5mm offset headset cups. Allowing riders that have classically landed between conventional bike sizes to adjust for a great fit.

Each frame size is tuned for small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Learn more about our size specific tune here.

Lastly, the ability to mullet MD-XL is now available through a built-in flip chip. No need to buy a separate link or mount.

RIDE-4™ adjustment system

Allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a single Allen key.

PenaltyBox™ 2.0

The new downtube storage (carbon models only) includes generous capacity, custom tool wrap and our rock-solid hinged door system that doubles down as a water bottle mount and built-in concealed AirTag/Tile compartment.
