Bike info

With a whopping 150mm of travel in the rear and a massive 160mm fork paired with the 29” wheels this beast can roll over anything at any speed. But at the same time, the light weight, super efficient power transmission redefine the range of applications that one bike can have. We wanted a bike that can pedal up the sections that others have to walk, and fly over sections that others have to plough through. Riders and press love the alloy Snabb 150 but the Define takes things to the next level.

Alloy frame with custom hydroformed tubes & double pass welds
Adjustable BB height
Progressive geometry with 44 mm fork rake
160mm front / 150mm rear travel
Fox Performance suspension
SRAM GX 1x12 drivetrain

The beautiful carbon Define is now available in metal. It was a big challenge to translate the complex lines of this bike to another material, and 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 an adjustable BB height and semi-integrated cable guides - a practical and elegant solution of the internal / external cable routing dilemma. Big sealed pivots keep it stable and guarantee long periods of smooth, service free function. There are a few things that we borrowed directly from the Snabb - and that 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”).

Frame size recommendations:
S 160cm - 170cm
M 170cm - 182cm
L 180cm +


You can raise the BB height by 5mm from the stock settings by using the adjustable shock mount or you can completely transform the bike by changing the shock mount & shock (changes travel from 155 mm to 130 mm or vice versa).




The pivot that is most difficult to replace is hidden inside the frame and remains completely isolated from dirt and water inside the frame.


The cables appear to be threaded through the downtube and chainstay...



But actually, they are only hidden in a special channel in the construction. Easy to replace anytime, anywhere!
