Fade SLX Ltd Edition

Check Availability
Our first ever Fade full build featuring Shimano Drivetrain & Brake, with Hope wheels & Burgtec finishing kit.

We say that the Fade is a dirt jump frame in it's rawest, purest form. It's not an extra-small version of something else. It's not a bike that's designed to be versatile. It's a legitimate dirt jump & pump track platform, pure and simple. In addition to the Fade Luxe and Works bikes, we like to mix things up with our limited edition series and this is the latest model.

Let's start with the obvious: the Marzocchi Bomber DJ. These forks are as rare as unicorn poo right now but we've got 5 sets just for this build. The wheelset is the Hope Fortus 30W SS built around Pro 4 hubs. The cranks are Shimano SLX M7100 running a 30t single chainring (30/13 ratio) using a black Gusset Slink 1/2 link chain. We've paired the cranks up with a Shimano SLX M7100 brake and rotor.

Finishing kit is courtesy of Burgtec. Up front there's a Mk3 Enduro 35mm stem and Josh Bryceland signature 'RideHigh' 38mm bars. That's matched to a Burgtec Boost DJ saddle out back.

All in all it's a high quality, fast build. Total weight is just 10.7kg (23lb). As usual with our limited edition series, only a small number will be built.

The Fade frame is available in one size only. It's designed as a compact dirt jump & pump-track bike but reach is a little bit longer than most, so it's perfect if you're a mountain biker accustomed to modern, long enduro bikes.
