Blackbird is a completely new frame in Dartmoor product line for 2017. Designed in collaboration with many top Enduro riders its single pivot suspension design together with the linear frame suspension characteristic makes the frame very sensitive in the entire 160mm travel range.
Geometry designed around a low center of gravity and longer front triangle will give you more control than you have ever felt before, setting fast, loose and off camber descents on fire! Dartmoor’s adjustable geometry system gives you the ability to decide the correct settings for your riding style by adjusting the shock length in two different positions.
But the Blackbird is not just about descending... Dartmoor have paid attention to the main pivot position ensuring that pedal bob and efficiency are considered, as a result the Blackbird will see you smashing KOM’s whilst pedaling uphill transitions. Blackbird is compatible with standard 142x12mm rear hub spacing.

One side offset shock hardware included.

Available options: w/o shock; w/RS Monarch Plus RC3 HV air shock.
