The idea behind the Fade is for it to be a proper dirt jump bike. A bike that inspires you to push harder at the pump track, begs you to throw shapes at the skatepark and loves getting sideways at the trails. It's agile and easy to get on the back wheel without being twitchy. Geometry is tight & snappy but still long enough that you're comfortable coming off your 'big bike'. A mountain biker's dirt jump bike.

Two wheels, one gear, zero hassle. They say less is more, and a bike like this is best in its purest form. There are no removable dropouts and no option to run gears. No ISCG tabs, no weird BB standard. Just clean lines and a heap of fun. What the Fade does have is super-clean horizontal dropouts, a threaded BB and cable routing for a rear brake only.
New Fade v2 the new Fade has two size options and three colours: Matte Black, Dippy Egg and Purple Haze. All in our unique matte powder finish.
All Fade bikes are built to order in our Sheffield workshop. Whereas many stock dirt jump bikes can be a bit cheap when it comes to components, the Fade is legit throughout. A frame as good as the Fade deserves the right build kit and our choices on the Luxe and Works bikes don't disappoint.
