Core Bike 2010: Cove G-Spot prototype

We found it!

Cove’s full-suspension range has reached its climax with the unveiling of the new G-Spot freeride/all-mountain rig.


This 6in-travel bike is based on the Canadian company’s Shocker and STD models, but with less travel and a lower weight.

It may be slimmed down but it’s still tough enough for team rider Eric Lawrenuk to use at slopestyle contests, with custom-drawn 7005 alloy tubing, a 1.5in head tube and proven four-bar linkage suspension design.

The G-Spot eschews the currently-fashionable swoopy down tube in favour of one that starts off straight behind the head tube, for more fork crown clearance, and then kinks downwards before levelling off again ahead of the bottom bracket.


The version shown here is a prototype but production models should be available soon. RRP is £1,895 for the frame with a Fox DHX Air 5.0 shock. It’ll be available in gloss white, black, bright green, team orange or red, and in sizes small, medium and large.
