Bullet-proof, time-proven suspension at an unbeatable price. People say you have to spend a hell of a lot of cash to buy a full-suspension bike. Or at least a full-suspension bike that truly performs. They’re usually right. Usually. But not this time around. The Atroz proves them wrong with four inches of reliable coil-sprung rear suspension that nicely smooths out the trail. Since you’ll need to climb to the top of the mountain, we’ve also given the Atroz a 18-speed Shimano drivetrain, and when it’s time to head back down, you’ll find the Suntour XCM suspension fork and Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes keep you firmly in control of the descents. - Hand-built 4-inch travel aluminum alloy full-suspension frame is super strong - Optimized single pivot with sealed cartridge bearings for smooth, durable performance - 18 gears courtesy of Shimano 2x9 drivetrain - SR Suntour XCM fork with 120mm of suspension travel - Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes w/ 180/160mm rotors - 27.5” wheels offer quick handling
The Release 1 is proof positive that getting a great bike doesn't always require that you fork over a great big pile of cash. Built from a light, yet tough aluminum frame, this all-mountain ripper features our much-lauded Level Link suspension design, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs. Or, to employ less tech-geek speak, the suspension doesn't bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush the moment your wheels start smacking roots and rocks. Our entry-level Release 1 is actually anything but "entry". We’ve equipped it with an SR Suntour Aion suspension fork with an SR Suntour EDGE R rear shock, our Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, and SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain components. TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes help bring you to a stop, though stopping is probably going to be the last thing you want to do once you bring this bike up to speed.
The Release 29 1 is a big-wheeled ripper made for long days and big lines. This aluminum 29er is built on the same 130mm-travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings. We've adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude of all our Level Link bikes. An SR Suntour Aion suspension fork and a Suntour Edge R rear shock soak up the rough stuff, while SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain components keep you cranking. Our Blanchard wheelset is tubeless compatible and comes with 2.3-inch-wide WTB Vigilante Comp tires for unwavering traction. When it's time to slow down, TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes keep you on your line all the way down the mountain.

Climb any mountain, shred any descent. The Release turned heads and earned rave reviews from the cycling press when it debuted. We’re proud of that fact, but (at the risk of sounding conceited) we’re not entirely surprised. Our patent-pending Level Link system is the best-pedaling suspension design we’ve ever cooked up. What’s more, the bike’s progressive geometry helps makes the Release fast and flickable, yet supremely confident at high speeds. It’s a winning combination. We equipped the Release 2 with a host of reliable components, including Shimano SLX 12-speed and a 150mm Fox Rhythm 34 fork — a fork that plows through big hits without diving or flexing. Tackle tough climbs and fast, steep, technical descents aboard the Release 2. - Size Small = 5'4" – 5'7" - Size Medium = 5'7" – 5'10" - Size Large = 5'10" – 6'2" - Size X-Large = 6'2" – 6'6"
There are many ways to tackle tough terrain. You can, for instance, add lots of suspension travel to a bike. There's nothing wrong with that approach, but the Catch 2 takes a different tack. By combining our brisk-pedaling Level Link suspension with modern geometry and wide, plus-size tires, we've created a bike that possesses the playful personality of a sporty, mid-travel bike with the traction and control of a bike that packs much more suspension travel. The Catch's aluminum frame features carefully hydroformed tubes for reliable durability and light weight. This top-tier Catch also wears an equally impressive component mix that includes a Shimano SLX 1x12 drivetrain paired with Shimano cranks, a Fox Rhythm 34 suspension fork, Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes, and a KS E30i dropper post. Sand, mud, rock gardens, kitty litter over hardpack... the Catch is a blast when exploring the trails less traveled.
The Release 29 2 is the lankier sibling of the Release and Catch full-suspension mountain bikes. Designed for high-mileage days with a high shred factor, this aluminum trail ripper is built on the same 130mm travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings. We've adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude that our Level Link bikes have become known for. The Fox Float DPS Performance shock is outfitted with an EVOL LV air sleeve for excellent responsiveness and a bottomless feel to soak up the worst on steep, technical terrain. A 140mm travel Fox Rhythm 34 fork, Shimano SLX drivetrain, and hydraulic stoppers let you stay focused, no matter what the trail dishes out. - 130mm travel hydroformed aluminum frame features Level Link system for efficient yet supple suspension - Fox Float DPS EVOL LV Performance rear shock is responsive and adjustable - 140mm travel Fox Rhythm 34 fork features Grip damper for a more consistent feel - Race Face cranks and Shimano SLX 1x11-speed drivetrain for smooth shifting - Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes offer high power and great control

The Release 4C features the same bottomless-feeling rear suspension and deft handling as our aluminum Release models, but with an even lighter, stiffer chassis built from carbon fiber. It starts with our Level Link suspension system, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs. This means the suspension doesn't bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush on technical descents. For smooth bump-eating performance, the Release 4C is equipped with a Fox Float DPS EVOL LV rear shock and a 150mm travel Fox 34 Performance Float fork. SRAM's NX Eagle 12-speed single-ring drivetrain provides consistent shifting and, thanks to its 50-tooth granny gear, makes short work of pesky climbs. SRAM Guide R brakes keep you slicing through the most technical lines all day long. - Level Link design equals 130mm of efficient yet supple rear suspension - Light and stiff carbon frame with Boost 148x12mm Maxle dropout - KS LEV Si dropper post (w/ Southpaw remote lever) adds maneuverability on descents - Fox 34 Performance Float and Fox Float DPS EVOL LV rear shock provide supple suspension travel (150/130mm, front and rear) - Plenty of gearing to tackle steep climbs, thanks to SRAM NX Eagle 11-50T, single-ring drivetrain
When you spend hours in the saddle getting to a jaw-dropping descent, your bike should 100 percent rip. Those are the days for the Release 29 3. This aluminum trail bike is built on the same 130mm-travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings, the Release and Catch. We've adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude of all our Level Link bikes. A Shimano XT drivetrain paired with Shimano XT cranks provides crisp shifts and unflinching power transfer. The Fox Performance Float DPX2 rear shock offers improved performance on the most aggressive descents plus a greater compression adjustment range. For truly hairy descents, the 140mm travel Fox 34 Performance fork and Shimano XT brakes keep you laser-focused.
A privateer is a top-level rider who hits the trails without the benefit of a fancy sponsorship deal. Their ideal rig? A blue-collar machine that doesn't skimp on performance. That sums up the Release 3 perfectly. The heart of the bike is our artfully shaped and butted aluminum frame and brisk-pedaling Level Link suspension. A Fox 34 Performance Float 150mm travel fork and Fox Float DPX2 rear shock work in perfect tandem to obliterate tooth-rattling hits on even the longest of descents. Shimano's reliable XT 12-speed drivetrain components offer up seasons of accurate shifts and Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes continue to impress with their excellent balance of power and finesse. Other brag-worthy components include our burly Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR tires, and a KS LEV Si dropper post. The Release 3... pro-caliber quality for those of us with day jobs.
