FAST AND FURIOUS – YOU BETTER HOLD ON.
With a long line of World Cup winning heritage behind it the 327 is the latest development of our iconic downhill race model series.
It may have been designed for life between the tapes but the 327 is just as happy lapping up endless bike park runs - after all speed isn’t just for racers. Elite racer or park rat, the ultra reliable single pivot means less time in the pits or bike shop and more time on the trails.
Designed around 27.5 inch wheels the 327’s geometry blends high speed agility with a confident locked-in ride that encourages you to push a little harder, brake a little later and get to the bottom of the hill a whole lot quicker.
The through-the-downtube shock mount cradles a 250mm metric shock delivering 200mm of travel and giving us the scope to position the pivot point exactly where it needs to be to deliver the small bump performance and big-hit plushness that demanding racers require. The frame’s shock curve is a smooth ramp, allowing easy rear shock set-up - something that is often hampered by variable suspension paths. With the 327 suspension tuning is easily done with the suspension unit, making performance tweaks simple and straightforward on the fly.
Your size, trails and riding style are all part of an equation that adds up to a wheel size that works best for you. Whether you choose a 327 or 329 in your quest for speed rest assured you’ll be riding the fastest bike on the hill.
