The Socom FRO (For Racing Only) has been on the drawing board for some time but is available now – join the queue.

The bike’s an all-new lightweight downhill race machine that, boiled down to its essence, is a 216mm (8.5in) travel rig with the same geometry as the legendary M3, but with a lighter chassis weight of 3.6kg (8lb). The Socom uses Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension welded on to a mainframe designed to rip the trails apart with precision but without being a slugger.
