"TWO WHEELS, ONE GEAR, ZERO BS. A JUMP BIKE IN ITS RAWEST, PUREST FORM."
FRAME ONLY - $1099
The original idea behind the FADE was for it to be a "proper dirt jump bike". A bike that inspires you to push harder at the pump track, begs you to throw shapes at the skate park and loves getting sideways at the trails.
It's agile and easy to get on the back wheel without being twitchy. Geometry is tight and snappy but still long enough to be comfortable when you come off your "big bike".
One size, one brake, one gear. They say less is more and a bike like this is best in its purest form. There are no removable dropouts and no option to run gears. No ISCG tabs, no weird BB standard. Just clean lines and heaps on fun. What the fade doesn't have is super clean horizontal drop outs, a threaded BB and cable routing for a rear brake only. How it should be.
A reach of 430mm and a BB drop of 25mm make for a stable ride paid with super short 385mm chain stays and a 69 degrees head angle to keep things tight and agile. The Fade is ready to party at a moments notice.
