"the rear end works first class..."
“Downhill the M97 rides smoothly through the terrain. The rear end works first class, jumps fine and reliably smooths out even rough passages.”
"... what an ingenious device!"

“I was able to test my new M9 for the first time today in a riding technique course, what an ingenious device!”

rider weight

We recommend a maximum rider weight of 110 kg, including clothing, backpack, accessories, etc. to take full advantage of the potential and adjustability of the suspension. Heavier riders may experience an increased sag percentage.

M97 geometry

All sizes are given in millimeters, unless stated otherwise.

M drivetrain

The M’s integrated gearbox gives you next generation technology and a worry-free drivetrain.

 

Thanks to the absence of derailleur and cassette your rear wheel is lighter, you have more traction and better control. Both with the Pinion DS2 grip shifter or with the optional Instinctiv trigger shifter; shifting is fast, instant and precise.

The Pinion DS2 shifter is great for shifting a number of gears up or down with a single action.


Instinctiv’s trigger shifter combines the best of two worlds; it offers an interaction that is resembling a derailleur shifter with the speed of a gearbox.

M suspension

The M sticks to the trail like you never felt before. Your ride will be smoother, faster and with more control with our patented Puma suspension platform.

 

Small lightweight rockers, an upside-down-shock-mount, less unsprung weight, high quality bearings and the use of high load needle bearings in many pivots make for a highly responsive  layout.

Climbing is equally important and efficient with a steep seat tube angle, a low center of gravity and a high 115% anti-squat ratio around sag.

A premium quality Kevlar material protects the saddle in the exposed places.

 

Due to its flex properties, the saddle is most comfortable up to 75 kg. The maximum load should not exceed 90 kg.

sit bone measurement

select your size

Step 1
Sit on a stool on a piece of ribbed carbon with your back straight and shoulders back. Pull yourself down onto the stool to create more pressure.

 

Step 2
Measure the sit bone distance from center to center and add the value for the respective sitting position.

 

Step 3
Add 2 cm for a typical dynamic mountain bike riding position and based on your outcome, select the saddle for your personal riding style and in the correct width.

sizing tool

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.

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.
