New CLASH: The big (r)evolution!
With its 27.5-inch wheels, long travel and completely revised geometry and kinematics, the CLASH cements its place as a do-everything bike.
Bike park, enduro, chilled or more technical rides... It always steps up no matter what!
For 2021, the CLASH changes significantly.
The geometry has been reviewed in depth. Uphill riding position is enhanced thanks to an elongated top tube and a straighter seat tube angle.
Downhill, the longer reach will bring stability when things speed up, whilst the short stem will ensure a manoeuvrable and playful bike through slower sections.
Even if it's definitely intended for riders of all shapes and sizes (from S to XL), with 27-inch wheels the CLASH is a particularly strong option for smaller people.
Thanks to its new kinematics, the CLASH feels even more at home on the steepest freeride slopes.
The icing on the cake, like its big brother the FURIOUS, the CLASH features a kinematic adjustment. This setting gives priority to either sensitivity (Sensitive) or dynamism (Dynamic).
No need to make many concessions.
The Sensitive mode is intended for DH/Freeride days when you need that comfort and grip.
Dynamic mode is ideal for smoother tracks or jump sessions with friends for example, when you're looking for energy and flow.
Though the CLASH doesn't change aesthetically, we've delivered a whole new frame; its behaviour and level of performance takes a huge step forward.
Not surprising for a CLASH after all!
About the CLASH SIGNATURE
We think the 'Dirt' finish on this frame and Kashima coating of the FOX suspension make this CLASH SIGNATURE an exceptionally attractive bike!
You'll find the very best parts on this very high-end model. The new FOX 38 Factory Fit Grip2 is a good place to start. With 180mm travel it's ideal for cushioning the largest blows whilst the Kashima coating reduces friction and therefore increases plushness. The rear shock is the FOX DHX2 Factory which is a must for spring shock lovers! The sensitivity is second-to-none. Shimano XT 4-piston brakes are one of the best, so stopping and control is no longer a problem here... Similarly, we have Shimano XT 12-speed gears which are as reliable as they are precise. To finish in style, the DT Swiss custom wheels are designed specifically for our bikes. They are made up of one of the best enduro rims on the market today. The EX 511 and likewise, the 350 hubs, are ultra solid and reliable.
