WILDCAT V2 Aluminum

WILDCAT V2 Aluminum

When we unleashed the Wildcat back in 2016, the stoke was high around here for our first full-suspension foray. A bike that could gobble up the rough stuff that makes hardtail riding such a rodeo sometimes. We even increased the travel along the way, to make the ‘Cat even wilder.

But a funny thing happened on the way back from the jungle. Like a certain legend of yore, a man raised in the jungle but then brought back to modern civilization, this bike has been fine-tuned to have better trail manners.

A more balanced, refined trail bike has emerged with this new design. Travel has been reduced, but the ability to tame savage singletrack has only improved. Small but significant changes add up to better balance all around:

  • 120mm rear and 140mm front travel
  • 65* head tube and 76* seat tube
  • revised leverage ratio and reach numbers for all sizes

Two years of testing and refining have made the Wildcat a better climber and more nimble descender.

It’s time for a new legend of stoke.
