Foes made it onto the list of What Mountain Bike’s best suspension bikes of 2006, and it’s not difficult to see why. For every super hyped ‘grab the atttention’ bike there are always those innovators who go about their pioneering work very quietly and let the results do the talking. With his predilection for bright red paint, plus one model that has hot rod flames moulded into the monocoque frame you couldn’t call Brent Foes understated, but his bikes have been way beyond the cutting edge for over a decade.
If you’ve always wondered what it’s like to ride one of these phenomenal bikes, get yourself to the What Mountain Bike Demo Days and have a go – for free!
Foes will be bringing the new XCT trail bikes, which are available in both 4″ and 5″ models.
A completely new design, they’re designed to complement the superb, hard hitting 2:1 6″ FXR introduced last year (unchanged for this year and also present). The 4″ XCT bike will have the new extra large air chambered Carnutt 2:1 air shock (lower shock psi = better bump absorption and traction) with adjustable head angle & b/b for the discerning rider who wants the stiffest, best handling 4″ bike on the market.
The XCT 5 features a Carnutt 2:1 coil (with XTD bottom out and Ti spring upgrade options) designed to be equally at home on backcountry, all day epics or shredding the trail centres.
There’ll also be a Fly, the iconic Foes Freerider (8-9″ travel) again with the exclusive Carnutt shock and with the option to run it with 1,2 or 3 rings is probably the most versatile bike of it’s kind.
All Foes demo bikes will be size M.
