Details

The HD6 is the evolution of one of the most successful enduro bikes in history. Designed with input from our Enduro World Cup team and building upon our award-winning Ripmo and HD lines, the HD6 features increased travel, a completely redesigned suspension layout, and mixed wheels.

The 29? front wheel, bol­stered by 180mm of trav­el, assures sta­bil­i­ty, where­as the 27.5? rear wheel allows for addi­tion­al maneu­ver­abil­i­ty. The 165mm of trav­el skill­ful­ly man­ages any fall­out. With a 64 degree head tube angle (one degree slack­er than the cur­rent Rip­mo), a BB height sim­i­lar to Mojo HD5, and chain­stay length iden­ti­cal to the cur­rent Rip­mo (despite the 27.5? rear wheel), the bike main­tains an equi­lib­ri­um between agili­ty and stability.

In order to place every size rid­er in the same posi­tion over the rear wheel, the HD’s seat tube angles get steep­er as frame size increas­es. With four sizes, this would have result­ed in larg­er jumps in reach, so we added a fifth size. The small­er incre­ments across five sizes means that you can find just the right size. We encour­age rid­ers to choose their bike size based on their desired reach and top tube measurements.

Our upper link sus­pen­sion lay­out is pro­gres­sive enough to be sen­si­tive off the top, yet sup­port­ive enough for the biggest hits. It is also com­pat­i­ble with all coil shocks, for those longer race stages that can tax air shock performance.

The sus­pen­sion lay­out may be new, but it’s still DW-Link. The inher­ent effi­cien­cy means you don’t need an over­damped shock to climb well. Less shock damp­ing allows the wheels to stay plant­ed on the ground, pro­vid­ing more trac­tion and that hov­er-bike feel that our frames are known for. The HD6 climbs with a finesse that defies its enduro race pedigree.

Our cus­tom tuned front and rear sus­pen­sion fea­ture extra light high speed com­pres­sion and rebound damp­ing to deliv­er unpar­al­leled trac­tion. This allows the wheels to flut­ter through rough ter­rain like a tro­phy truck storm­ing through a set of whoops.

All our bikes are built from the high­est grade mate­ri­als and opti­mized for the best strength, weight, stiff­ness, and ride per­for­mance?—?no mat­ter how much you spend. The HD6 frame is sub 6 lbs with­out shock and our com­plete Enduro ready builds weigh as lit­tle as 32 lbs.
