Whatever the hill throws at you, we have the weapon to match it – allowing you to alter the wheelbase by 10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style (long setting = 445mm, short setting = 435mm). This bike will perform above and beyond your expectations on any terrain.
It’s all about the detail
Our engineers designed the Pulse with a view to improving every individual part, from tubing alongside our Team Mechanics, we’ve made the Pulse not only functional and dependable improved bolt and shock access too.
The detail’s in the ride
At the beating heart of the Pulse is an instinctive platform that’ the world’s highest, fastest, steepest and most gnarly trails – pushing you to ride on the edge bike and a smoother suspension feel throughout the stroke of the shock. We’ve also slimmed bump compliance without compromising strength. Our Split Forge System allows us to utilise the material properties of the frame to provide a stronger yet lighter yoke while reducing the
number of welds, allowing a larger area to disperse any loads and forces
