Features• We’ve built a bike that can climb as well as it descends. The dw-link’s® position-sensitive anti-squat characteristics make for exceptional climbing and snappy acceleration.

• Relaxed 67° head angle, and low bottom bracket height, make for excellent cornering and great stability and increased rider confidence on the trail and on the race course.

• 6.6” (167mm) rear travel and 160mm to 180mm fork compatibility (170mm standard).

• Rearward wheel travel path for incredible square edge bump performance and unparalleled pedaling performance.

• New Fox RP23 Kashima shock with custom tuned rebound and Propedal settings for increased rider tunability and incredible small bump sensitivity.

• Full 1.5” headtube accepts the CaneCreek Angleset, allowing the rider to further tune the handling. Several Firebird options now come with the Angle set as part of the stock build.

• The Firebird (like many bikes in our line) is all about versatility; allowing riders to do everything from 24 hour endurance races, to park/gravity riding, Super D and the occasional DH race but its real home is aggressive trails where the ride up is just as technical as the ride down.
