SWITCH INFINITY
The SB5 is built around our patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.
BUILT FOR THE DOWN BUT IT CAN GET UP
The Switch Infinity suspension was tuned for anti-squat and leverage ratio properties that equally balance the downhill capabilities with uphill pedaling efficiency. Making this a optimum choice to slay all day epics, a multi-day bike packing trip or local rip.
RETOOLED METRIC SHOCK
Working with FOX we retooled the SB5’s shock with an exclusive air volume configuration and tune. This resulted in better mid-stroke compression and small bump sensitivity providing a wider range of riders with a custom feel.
COMPATIBLE WITH PLUS SIZE TIRES
You can now run a range of tires sizes on the SB5 all the way up to a 2.8″ plus size. This option makes an already versatile trail bike even more so as you can change out the tread to accommodate your terrain, riding style, or whatever combo suits your needs.
INTEGRATED AXLE AND HANGER
The integrated axle and derailleur hanger system is built for simplicity and strength. Utilizing a left-hand thread to secure the hanger allows us to incorporate the same machine piece for the axel retention. A clever little system the engineers spent many hours on that might get overlooked.
CUSTOM FRAME PROTECTORS
On the SB5 the frame protectors for the down tube and chainstay are custom molded to match the frame. This guarantees a proper fit and adhesion to the frame for years of protection without the need for replacement or additional adhesives.
INTERNAL ROUTING
May seem like a small thing but having a clean aesthetic on the frame along with internally molded carbon tubes inside of frame for hassle-free cable routing. It makes for a quiet ride and ease of maintenance. For us, building a great frame is all about the details.
ANTI-SQUAT
We are aiming for a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in the beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a. the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, as opposed to one single point. After the pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link begins to move down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. You’re typically not pedaling in this zone, so we want the chain forces to have less of an effect on the suspension performance since it’s an opposing force. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts.
LEVERAGE RATIO
We aim to design a leverage rate with linear progression. A straighter, more linear curve means it’s easier to tune shocks to pair with the suspension kinematics, and we don’t have to to rely on damping circuits to compensate. We can choose a leverage ratio that provides small bump sensitivity and enough progression to maintain mid-stroke support and bottom out control. Being able to manipulate the leverage ratio without affecting the anti-squat characteristics is unique to our patented Switch Infinity suspension.
