Whether battling against the clock on a World Cup downhill course or just having a blast in the bike park, the Two15 SL is up for it. This is a bike that's designed to be both surprisingly light and reassuringly bombproof - because lighter means easier to handle, which translates to more speed, and more speed is what it's all about... right? Taking a no-compromise approach, our designers selected a premium crop of components to give the Two15 SL a competitive edge. A Race Face cockpit combines with SRAM's XO1 DH 7 speed transmission and Magura MT7 hydraulic disc brakes to put you firmly in control. Light, tough DT CSW DH 3.7 wheels wrapped in Schwalbe Magic Marys provide the motive force you'll need, while a Fox 40 Float fork and matching air shock keep the rubber side down, no matter how hard you ride.
The principle behind the Two15's frame design is the same succesful four pivot concept that powers all our full suspension bikes. That's important, because it means that we were able to realise the same suspension characteristics as our super-efficient trail bikes, but with 215mm of rear wheel travel and noticeably better agility and control than simpler DH bike designs. But we didn't stop with the kinematics - our engineers also put a lot of effort into reducing weight. The Two15's hydroformed, triple butted tubeset with 157mm chainstays weighs only a little more than an enduro frame, but delivers extaordinary steering precision and epic rock swallowing ability. Our optimised suspension design provides apparently endless grip on every trail surface, and the internal cable routing keeps gear shifts clean and the the frame's looks cleaner still.
