The guys from California-based Mountain Cycle dropped by this morning to show us their ’09 range of full-suspension mountain bikes.
The Fury is the company’s cross-country/all-mountain ‘do-it-all’ frame, and has undergone continuous improvement since it was introduced in 2005. The 5in travel frame has a dropped top tube, full monocoque swingarm and uninterrupted cable routing.
The Battery marks Mountain Cycle’s foray into the slopestyle arena and is built for abuse with a CNC machined billet aluminium bottom bracket yoke for increased tracking and stiffness and a CNC’d chainstay yoke for good tyre and mud clearance. The Battery has modular dropouts for different axle setups.
The Shockwave is built for downhill and the scarier side of freeride. Mountain Cycle have revised the linkages on the new Shockwave to offer 8ins of progressive travel through a rocker-activated single pivot setup.
MBUK will be featuring the new Mountain Cycle range in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
