The AM.170.3 comes with a choice of Rockshox Super Deluxe Ultimate Coil or Air and Zeb Ultimate with either 170mm or 180mm up front.
In common with the Ohlins-led Build 2 every component on the AM.170.3 has been chosen to guarantee you the maximum trouble free days at the bike-park, at the races or in the back-country, rugged reliability is key!
Our 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, 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 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 great traction and a totally mind-blowing feeling of connection with the trail.
The AM.170.3 comes with a burly 12-speed Sram GX drivetrain and we chose the GX Eagle crankset, the best aluminium model we’ve seen. In common with our AM.150 and Build 2 An Eagle shifter and rear mech use some of SRAM's best technologies for a super smooth shifting operation.
Build 3 comes with a choice of Rockshox Super Deluxe Ultimate Coil or Air custom-tuned for our DW6 platform and 170mm of travel and Zeb Ultimate with either 170mm or 180mm up front. For this price range the Rockshox set-up is hard to beat, super-rugged, looks good and feels rad!
The GX Eagle 12 speed is the samegroupsetthat we use on our AM.150. It gives smooth, accurate shifting and is great for really big days in the hills; This well priced set-up has got your back - the 52t cog is great for slowly winching you those up long climbs.
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 3 we’ve chosen Stans Flow S2 teamed with Continental Kryptotal Enduro 2.4, 29 on the front and 27.5 on the back. For builds 2 and 3 we’ve spec’ed the super durable SramGX Eagle -“ the best Aluminium drivetrainSram make”
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.
