We’re all for people carving their own paths and we know that some of you will have your own preferred builds, it’s such a personal thing. We will swap out individual components whichever build you chose but you can also order “frame-only” (includes Fox Float X2 or DHX22 rear shock) or get in touch and we’ll help you to source the components you’ve been dreaming of for a truly individual ride.
Our mullet build AM.170 is designed to excel on steep terrain and is super-nimble, super-fun going downhill … and pedals back up like 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 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. So whether we’re pointing this bike at the top turns of Fort William’s downhill track, the endless big hits of Val di Sole or even the massive jumps and drops of Red Bull Hardlineit’s got what it takes and plenty more.
Custom Carbon Tubing
Our carbon tubing is custom-built for us to achieve the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance – meaning that your Atherton Bike will track the trail like no other.
Internal Cable Routing
All Atherton bikes now feature port-to-port internal routing, with an internal sleeve guiding the cables through the frame. As well as eradicating cable rattle, this approach provides the customer with the convenience and ease of maintenance associated with external routing, with the clean, sleek aesthetic and protection of internal routing.
The ABEC3 6903 LLU Max raises the bar for military standard, high precision bearings. MAX bearings are designed without retainers which enables them to carry a much higher load and makes them perfect for frame pivots. Thanks to its CRC Marine Grease, you won't have to worry about it washing out or breaking down when wet, making your frame bearings last even longer.
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.
