When it came to spec’ing our AM.170.1 Big Mountain Enduro bike we chose only the very best. The AM.170.1 is our Fox Factory build and comes with a choice of Fox Float X2 or DHX22 with either 170mm or 180mm Fox 38s up front.
Capable and versatile, with a mixed wheel configuration, straight through seat-post and 170mm of rear travel, this bike is a big hitter in the bike park and a beast out on the trails. For build 1 our choice of components prioritises lightweight with no compromise on strength and reliability.
Our brand-new, mullet build AM.170 is designed to excel on steep terrain and is super-nimble, super-fun going downhill … and pedals back up almost as well as our AM.150! … You can boost jumps, and really push it hard in the park but when you’re up for an adventure the new geometry and the DW6 platform work together to make those big mountain-style missions altogether more rewarding.
That’s a pretty big set of claims but they’re supported by a combination of factors. With the mullet set -up we’ve been able to move to a straight-through seat-tube so you can keep the seat low for the descent but still get maximum pop for the climbs. As in the rest of our range, the seat tube angle varies with size to make sure you’re in a great seated position on the bike. The DW6 suspension platform offers suppleness at the top of the stroke for outstanding small bump sensitivity, good support in the mid-stroke for optimal ride height and the progressive nature of the kinematic accommodates even the biggest of hits. Our carbon tubing is custom-built for us to achieve the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance so whether you’re climbing or descending this bike achieves maximum traction and a totally mind-blowing feeling of connection with the trail.
The AM.170.1 has a Fox transfer Factory 200mm Seatpost, FSA carbon bars and Stans Flow EX3 wheels teamed with Continental Kryptotal Enduro 2.4 29 up front and 27.5 at the rear and because you’ll need max braking power we’ve specced our race team’s favourite Hayes Dominion! The drivetrain consists of the amazing Sram Eagle XO1 series including the 10-52t, XG-1295 cassette to give riders an unprecedented 520-per cent gear range for the most brutal climbs. Sram’s DUB™ technology delivers the strongest, stiffest, lightest crankset available on today’s market!
Build 1 feature Fox 38s with either 170mm or 180mm of travel upfront and a choice of FoxFloat X2 or DHX22 on the rear, custom-tuned for our DW6 platform and 170mm of travel. We’ve partnered with Fox for more than 10 years so can guarantee whichever set-up you chose will result in a fantastic ride.
Eagle X01 12 speed delivers quicker shifting, smarter gear steps and more precise chain management. Lightweight and durable. This is the absolute top of the field for those riders that appreciate a more refined ride.
From their first test laps with Hayes Dominion A4 our race-team were blown away, so that’s the brakes that you’ll find on our entire AM.170 range. The award-winning Dominion A4s offer power, sensitivity, and reliability so that you can brake late and brake hard! Confidence-inspiring performance for every ride.
We love Stan’s wheels and Conti tyres so that’show we spec our production bikes. For Build 1 that means Stans Flow EX3 teamed with Continental Kryptotal Enduro 2.4, 29 on the front and 27.5 on the back. For build 1 we’ve spec’ed the super-efficient Sram XO1 Eagle drivetrain makes sure that every watt of the power you put down reaches those wheels.
Across our Enduro range we offer a choice of standard builds with the option of coil or air shock. Our builds can focus either on well-priced components chosen for rugged reliability or “the best that you can get” so there’s something for everyone! But there’s no pressure to settle for our favourites, use our standard builds as a springboard for your own line-by-line specification.
Because we’re small and flexible we’re able to supply anything from frame plus shock to a complete bike and you’ll find our component prices very competitive, get in touch with our team to spec your very own dream build.
