Click to read moreThis year our EWS-ready platform has been totally redefined and refocused with the all-new G-170 offering improved balance and control on the most challenging trails. Evolved and ultra-surefooted geometry with Enduro DH winning Quad 4 suspension will dominate black runs all day long. The light, responsive, efficient pedaling SCR framesets keep you fast and fresh however far away you’re hunting for thrills. Add our sealed InterGrip seat post clamp system, masses of mud room and latest generation lifetime warrantied pivot bearings to shrug off any weather and you’ve got the most versatile flat out fast, chaos taming, full gas all-rounders available. Built to allow riders and racers the set-up options to tune the G-170 for both air springs or coil springs (a crucial detail that separates the true EWS race bikes from the rest) the evolved geometry has been refined into a sensitive balance of front end precision and overall front to rear balance and control, with a low and centred rider centre-of-mass for ultimate confidence on the most technical and challenging terrain. Following feedback from our Enduro Race Team, the changes in geometry (stack, reach and chain stay length) have given us a more neutral riding position whilst providing better front/rear weight distribution for enhanced traction, cornering control and balance. The effect is an increase in traction through the front wheel for security in cornering whilst allowing the rider to stay in a more neutral position, bearing less weight through the arms, improving rider agility and reducing fatigue. Our latest generation QUAD 4 system is built around a metric shock with all-new low-profile hardware, including Enduro TM main pivot bearings. The G-170 features our new flush industrial design and critically, room for a full-size bottle.
RockShox & SRAM Eagle
The RS uses the same highly developed frame as the Works bike which our team race on. The parts are picked to make the most of this frame - from RockShox suspension to the brand new Eagle GX groupset, the RS is everything a modern long travel bike should be.
Open Front Triangle Design
This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to EWS Enduro racing. With its clever open front triangle design it is possible to fit various option of rear shock including coil shocks but still carry a full size water bottle.
Extra Wide Chainstays
The G-170 has extra width built into the rear chainstays to allow the rider to fully exploit the future developments in wide high volume tyres but maintain mud clearance.
