CUSTOM HYDROFORMED TUBING
Custom aluminium tubing allows us to create a solid, stiff and light chassis for the suspension parts to do their job properly. The tube shapes have great lateral stiffness for keeping the bike tracking straight and the mixture of straight and curved lines creates a functional and flowing frame design.
BURST LT SUSPENSION LAYOUT
Our BURST suspension system has gone to a Long Travel platform, taking the solid rear triangle design to our trail and Enduro platforms. Single pivot rear triangle mixed with two short linkages gives ultimate trail feedback mixed with ultra durable and supple suspension with our smooth progressive leverage ratio that enables full travel with a bottomless feeling combination. Our next generation technology is ready for you to unleash on the trail.
BOOST 148MM SPACING
Rear Boost 148mm hub spacing for a stronger wheel build and more space for wider tyres. This lends itself to stiffer wheels when cornering and better hub bearing support at wider dimensions. This leads to better trail and Enduro bike needs.
COMPACT FORGED LINKAGES
The compact linkages that connect the solid rear triangle to the main frame are forged for ultimate strength, stiffness and weight requirements. Using large bearings all-round, they allow the swingarm to move progressively through the travel while keeping the rear wheel straight and connected to the ground.
This small flip chip on the front triangle shock mount allows a subtle change in Bottom Bracket height and Head Tube angle changes, allowing for custom handling traits as well as adjusting for wheel size change on the surface. Easily done for your trail performance tuning.
The curved Top Tube allows for more standover clearance when riding rough and challenging terrain. The long travel bikes sit higher than rigid or short travel bikes, and together with the hydroformed profiles, the frame is kept stiff and strong for trail and Enduro performance.
DUAL WHEEL COMPATIBILITY
The Surface is dual wheel size compatible. 29” or 27.5”+ wheels/tyres are both accommodated easily, and with the Boost hub spacing and the Flip Chip, either wheel size allows for a strong wheel and perfect geometry no matter your choice.
INTERNAL DROPPER ROUTING
A dropper post with internal routing can be used on this frame. There is a neat 8mm hole in the lower seat tube section for cable to link up to the dropper post. The frame comes with both a sealed plug and plug with 5mm hole for the dropper cable. An External dropper post can also be used with the under top tube guides if needed.
We have ISCG tabs on this frame for the ease of fitting your preferred chain guide device.
