We're very aware that the demand for the Fade has been way beyond what we can supply for the past few months. Maybe because the Fade was named the #1 DJ bike for 2021 by Redbull, or maybe just because you all know a good bike when you see one. Either way, we've had to move to monthly drops just so we can manage the demand. Even then, they've been selling out in minutes. So the question on everyone's lips is...
Will there be a drop of Fades on March 1st?
Regrettably, no. We have Fades planned for March but with all the disruption to supply chains, the stock just hasn't arrived. We will not be able to release any Fade Luxe or Fade Works bikes this month.
Will there be a drop of Fades on April 1st then?
We are still working on a drop of Fade Luxe and Works for April. But what we can confirm is that there will be two limited Edition Fades dropping on 1st April (see below).
When will Fade frames be back in stock?
Good news. We're expecting a new shipment of frames in May 2021.
We may not be able to build any Fade Luxe or Works bikes this month, but hopefully we can make up for that with a couple of very special Limited Edition builds dropping on Aril 1st. And no, we're not joking :-)
We've teamed up with Brett Rheeder's brand Title MTB to put together a Fade Title Ltd Edition build. Featuring a Fade frame in matte black with Rockshox Pike DJ, a full package of Title finishing kit and Magura MT5 Fabio Wibmer signature brakes. 10 will be built.

Full details of both bikes including photography and detailed specs will be published to the site in advance. Everyone will get a good chance to take a look and figure out if these are the right bike for them or if it's better to hold our for a Luxe or Works when they come back into stock.
