The Challenge: How do we go about updating a bike in our range whose legion of fans don't want us to change anything?


The answer, as with everything we do, is with great care and a stack of test feedback.

The new Alpine 6 has been through one of the most intensive prototyping programs we've ever done – the result is spectacular.

 

With the introduction of the 230mm metric shock, we have revised the suspension layout to increase the rear travel. We've also tuned the frame to be more progressive to retain a bottomless feel and improve small bump smoothness, treading that fine line that keeps wallow at bay and gives the Alpine 6 all the control it needs.

 

The geometry has also been under the microscope and refined to match the new suspension performance, resulting in more agility, stability and confident speed.

 

When you come upon one of those unholy beasts of a trail, this is the bike to take it on at full-gas and tame it.
