Filter Core Ltd Edition

Check Availability

The Filter was conceived as a rowdy trail bike. The new Core Ltd Edition delivers on that promise with the rowdiest build kit yet.

When we set out to design the Filter, the idea was for it to be a versatile platform; one that you could build in different ways. Every way we could think of was for it to be rowdy. Everyone at Airdrop put in a lot of time on Filters and James (bike designer) settled on a build that suits his favourite trails in Wharncliffe. And that's why we've put together this limited edition build - to take the Filter to the max. 

Instead of the Pike Ultimate, the core edition amps things up with a Lyrik Ultimate, adding strength, stiffness and an extra 10mm travel. That drops the head-angle out to 64.5°. Plus they're Boxxer red which is always good. We've matched that up with a Cane Creek DBcoil IL rear shock so you get all the plushness and plenty of tuneability without a weight penalty.

As ever we've specced Burgtec finishing kit (it is the best) but we've gone with James' preference for a higher front end with the RideHigh 38mm bar. Better on the steep stuff. And that these carries through to the brakes which are Code RSC. World Cup DH brakes on a trail bike? Why not. 

We've gone with the WTB Proterra Tough i30 wheelset and specced Michelin Wild Enduro tyres - Magi-X front and Gum-X rear. As always, they're set up tubeless. A suitably hardcore combo for what is undoubtedly a hardcore bike.
