The S7 (Supple Seven) is a blend of simplistic but versatile, comfortable but fast; it’s the best hardtail mountain bike out there. Yes, that’s quite the claim, as “best” is qualified in the eye of the beholder. That said, we truly believe that our new S7 is the ultimate all-around trail riding mountain bike that will last a lifetime. Designed around 27.5×2.8” tires, with clearance for up to 3.0” tires, this comfortable cornering machine will have you whooping for joy on trails where you thought hardtails couldn’t go. Not a fan of plus size tires?  You can also spec the S7 with 29″ wheels and the frame will fit up to a 29×2.3″ tire.  We did not intend for the S7 to win XC races or take down Strava KOMs on a downhill run (though we know some of you will prove us wrong, and, if you do, let us know; swag ships to all shredders). We created the S7 to adventure up and down hills with friends, rail corners, tackle technical climbs, and look damn fine while leaning against a tree while we drink beer on top of a mountain. We created the S7 to answer the question, “Why do we ride?

The titanium frame tubing optimises the best qualities of the material. The ovalised top tube and slightly bent seat tube allow for excellent vertical flex to soak up trail chunder, while the squared-off bottom bracket juncture makes this titanium frame incredibly laterally stiff to minimise energy transfer loss when you take that KOM sprint to the brewery before it closes. Fully-guided internal cable routing and stealth dropper routing allow for a clean look and low maintenance. Sliding dropouts create options for singlespeed, belt, or geared drivetrains, and, most importantly, tuning the chainstay length for your desired ride quality. The Supple 7 lives up to its name: incredibly comfortable, fast, and corners like you’ve never imagined. You’ll feel like the luckiest rider on the trail with this trusty steed as your companion.

Geometry
The S7 has a few unique geometry features. Mainly, the bottom bracket drop and the reach. The BB drop affects how a bike corners and, combined with chainstay length, affects its stability. On the S7, the BB drop is just slightly more than other similar bikes out there, giving it a more stable, comfortable feel, yet making cornering feel more precise when initiated by the rider. (Especially when combined with the big tires!) The reach is slightly longer than similar bikes- the bike is built around extra wide bars and short stems, which significantly improves all-mountain trail handling.
