The Druid has proven to be a groundbreaking trail bike, blurring the lines between that of a traditional trail bike and the enduro segment. With the Dreadnought we wanted to take that concept and push it further. We developed a bike that can pedal up any climb with the enduro crowd, yet it exhibits DH bike confidence on the descents. FEAR NOTHING is the mantra of this bike: fear no climb, fear no descent. No more excuses, no more off-days, just 100% confidence in your bike and ability.
Recent geometry trends have seen a push toward longer wheel bases for increased stability. This push has moved the trail and enduro bike wheelbases in line with that of DH bikes (this is a good thing!). However, it has mostly been achieved using only a significant increase in frame reach. By only increasing frame reach, stability at speed is improved at the detriment of lower speed handling (this is a bad thing!). At Forbidden we chose a more measured approach where we have achieved the same goal through a combination of head angle reduction, moderate reach increase (used in conjunction with a short stem, and a rear centre increase.
Compared to the Druid, the Dreadnought exhibits a longer wheelbase for added stability in high speed situations. Yet is still delivers a remarkably agile ride characteristic in lower speed tech sections. Where the Druid excels on all mountain terrain, the Dreadnought aims to take that one step further and to the extremes. The DH bike inspired geo delivers a confidence inspiring platform that invites high speed manoeuvres and taking on lines that are often left to be ticked-off another day. Whether you’re riding all day epics, racing enduro, shuttling at the local steeps or stomping the bike park, the Dreadnought has you covered.
Strength to match the confidence | The Dreadnought has been tested to DH standards. As such the frame is rated for dual crown use.
Construction | Coupled with industry leading size optimised geo, specific tubing profiles are used to further emphasise commitment to a consistent ride quality.
Sensible Design | The Druid and the Dreadnought share, where possible, hardware and fittings. Including the Ziggy Link (Mullet), threaded BSA BB and 148 boost spacing.
Geometry Highlights | DH bike confidence with a 63.5 degree head angle. Increasing rear centre (chainstays) to provide a balanced and consistent ride across all sizes. Actual seat tube angles increase through the size range improving fit for larger riders.
