Details

Optimized for the Entire Mountain

We tailored every detail of the Switchblade to deliver a bike ready to conquer the entire mountain. Progressive geometry broadens the performance envelope while retaining the versatility that made the original so good. Always with an eye on confidence-inspiring design, we shortened, straightened, and steepened the Switchblade's seat tube to allow longer travel dropper posts.


Uncommon Versatility

The Switchblade was already a bike ahead of its time and the new Switchblade pushes the versatility envelope even further. It doesn't matter if you want to run 29er wheels, 27.5" X 2.8" plus tires, or even a 29"/27.5" combo – the Switchblade can be perfected for all.

Beyond All Mountain

The new Switchblade's extraordinary versatility and category-bending capability redefine performance across every type of trail. From bike park flow trails to raw backcountry routes, the Switchblade amplifies every rider's skills and excels on any trail.
