Arguably one of the most universal frame in the range. Rip up and down mountains all day, every day. One of our favorite versions of the carbon Define is now available in metal -  but for sure it's not heavy-metal! We have sweated every detail of this high-end alloy frame to make it as light and as sexy as possible. Some of the unique features include adjustable BB height and semi-integrated cable guides - a practical and elegant solution of the internal / external cable routing dilemma. Don't be fooled by the “shortness” of it's travel. It really feels like it has much more than the quoted numbers. At the same time, the climbing capability of this frame is absolutely amazing. 
This frame is not just a fancy version of the Snabb - we worked hard to make sure we really are taking things to the next level. To start with, the industrial design was conceived by the guys who made the Eurobike Gold Award winning Rondo Ruut. It features unique semi-internal cable routing - the lines are elegantly hidden away, but there is none of the hassle that is involved with standard internal routing. The frame has adjustable geometry via adjustable and interchangeable shock mounts (it’s possible to change the height of the BB or even change the travel by swapping the shock and shock mounts). Big sealed pivots keep the frame stable and guarantee long periods of smooth, service free function. What we did take directly from the Snabb is the kinematics of the 4-bar suspension that everyone loves (Pinkbike: "There is so little pedal-induced bobbing at play here that it sort of boggles the mind”), progressive geometry and all-round fun factor.
