    Demo Race


    Demo Race

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    All-out speed has always been the Demo’s target, and with the Demo Race, it’s no different. Introducing a new flexible wheel-size frame design that allows riders to take advantage of a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear wheel, it’s a special blend that’s long been tested by World Champ Loïc Bruni looking for the perfect balance of traction and maneuverability, but only just green-lighted by the UCI this past year. Not that it stopped the Demo Race from racking up both the Downhill World Championship and overall World Cup titles in its very first season...

    Now, we’re offering that same winning combination straight out of the box, while an adjustable rear end that still allows you to change between 27.5 and 29-inch wheel sizes based on terrain and riding style while also adjusting for proper chainstay length and bottom bracket height.

    Blazing fast on tough tracks, the Demo Race suspension design has been developed around a more rearward axle path that reduces rear-wheel hang-up, increasing speed instead.

    Top-shelf suspension from Öhlins takes advantage of the most proven suspension kinematics on the World Cup circuit, and SRAM’s DH-specific X01 drivetrain has you covered from the start gate to finish line.

    This bike is the nicest factory built bike on the market.

    I would have to say that this is the best bike I have ever purchased from a company and not built myself. The one complaint that I have is the frame is not carbon but then again that is personal taste and not really an issue by any means. The frame is super strong and the suspension is otherworldly and feels so nice if you are really pushing the bike.
