Description

The Lathkill is Forme’s ultimate award winning trail machine with graphics inspired by the contour lines of Lathkill Dale in Derbyshire. It’s 140mm travel is a perfect ‘do it all’ length of suspension allowing the rider to climb and descend with speed and fun. The attention to detail in our geometry, cockpit dimensions and finish kit collections are second to none. The spec has been chosen carefully to satisfy even the pickiest of riders, with market leading components such as Rock Shox Pike forks, Rock Shox Stealth routed dropper Reverb seat post and Shimano XT 1 x 11 transmission.

Highlights

Highlights

  • Active 4-bar linkage 140mm rear suspension system with a progressive leverage curve to ensure minimal movement is achieved over smaller bumps.
  • Optimal leverage ratio and axle path to deliver balanced pedalling efficiency, an active and supple feel in the mid stroke for tenacious traction and cornering grip and plenty of support near the end of the travel for ultimate control when faced with larger drops and bigger impacts.
  • Long 140mm travel front suspension with a 15mm thru-axle suited to a wide range of UK trail centres.
  • Carefully selected Schwalbe Hans Dampf Tyres in 27.5 x 2.35 that lend themselves to varied terrains and weather conditions.
  • Balanced cockpit design consisting of a 780mm wide handle bar and 50mm stem to produce excellent handling.
