    * If you live outside of mainland Europe, we will need to send you the Smart.Shift battery separately. This is due to transport and insurance issues we face if the battery is assembled into the frame. As soon as you receive the bike, you can dismount the Pinion gearbox, connect and insert the battery in the frame and mount the Pinion back on. We will give you instructions and support.

    body height

    Stand straight with your back against a wall and place a book on your head. Make sure the book is parallel with the floor and at right angles to the wall, touching the wall. Make a mark on the wall with tape and measure the distance between the bottom of the book and the floor.

    leg length

    Stand straight up with your back against a wall. Take a book and tuck it between your legs. Pull up the book, simulating the pressure of sitting on a bike saddle. Make a mark on the wall with tape and measure the distance between the top of the book and the ground.

    kinematics

    progressive

    The Kodiak 130 has a progressive suspension character. This way the suspension is supple and sensitive around sag, yet big hit capable. Plush with little risk of bottoming out. How progressive a bike is depends primarily on the regression of the leverage ratio.

    We tested prototypes with various leverage curves and found the sweet spot: a leverage ratio that decreases by 15% throughout the bikes’ travel.

    If you want the suspension to be even more progressive there is the option of adding extra volume spacers in the shock. This is something we tweak when we set up the bike for you, based on your weight and where you plan to ride.

    efficient

    Mountain bikes from major brands tend to be advertised with a single anti-squat percentage. What they don’t tell you is they can suffer from vastly different anti-squat values when shifting down the cassette. We have measured deviations up to 75%.

    The Kodiak 130 has a anti-squat value of around 115% at sag across all gears thanks to our chainline not being affected by gear shifts.

    So, why 115% anti-squat? In short this compensates for 100% of pedal bob induced by the pedal torque and another 15% to account for your body movement on the bike.

    Anti-squat values come down throughout the bikes’ travel: from more than 120% down to less than 90%. This way our team crafted a very efficient yet lively suspension platform.

    fully active

    The Kodiak 130 benefits from very little pedal kickback. Especially at high speed, in heavier gears kickback is negligible.

    This is a major benefit because it means the suspension remains fully active and sensitive during quick descends, even when pedaling.

    We achieved this thanks to a combination of our integrated gearbox and compact kinematics with limited chain growth.

    sensitive

    Anti-rise levels are optimal at 90 to 100% throughout the bikes’ suspension travel.

    This means that brake forces accurately compensate for any mass transfer during deceleration. Not only at sag-point but at any point throughout the bikes’ travel.

    In effect this stops you and the bike from tilting excessively forward under hard braking. At the same time levels around 100% still allow the suspension to remain active and sensitive throughout your braking zone.

    This way you won’t feel like you’re on a hardtail once you approach some brake bumps.

    smooth

    The Kodiak 130 is designed to offer a near vertical initial axle-path. A vertical or rearward axle path improves the suspension’s smoothness.

    When the vectors from trail obstacles and the wheel path are more in line this results in the suspension being compressed rather than the bike being ‘held back’.

    The favorable axle path is a result of the patented Puma kinematic platform and its very compact rocker layout.

    lead time

    Standard lead time for a full bike is about 8 - 10 weeks to build and prepare for shipping. The mentioned estimated delivery date is based on the idea that you order and pay within 2 - 3 days. The estimated delivery dates are calculated to the best of our knowledge, but might change if we recieve parts later than expected.

    factory outlet bikes

    If you order a bike from our factory outlet, then we will do another quality check and prepare for packing. This means that your bike will be ready for shipment in a couple of days. If you order your factory outlet bike with an option, like Smart.Shift, carbon wheelset or belt drive, the lead time will be longer.

    smart.shift

    If you live outside of mainland Europe, we will need to send you the Smart.Shift battery separately. This is due to transport and insurance issues we face if the battery is assembled into the frame. As soon as you receive the bike, you can dismount the Pinion gearbox, connect and insert the battery in the frame and mount the Pinion back on. We will give you instructions and support.

    weight

    Approx weight based on the lightest configuration in size L, with the lightest drive train, without pedals.
