2Stage Elite9 Downhill Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

The Elite9 is specifically designed for extreme downhill applications and built to better withstand the ever increasing demands in DH – the harshest of environments. Constructed with a unique space-frame chassis which forms at least 7 structural triangles this 9 inch bike boasts maximum rigidity and unparalleled handling and feedback.

Hit the dirt and feel the Elite9 perform to its utmost potential – feel instant acceleration as you stomp the crank at every turn, float over those high speed stutter bumps and feel the control when you brake harder and later into corners.

The acid test of the 2Stage System, the Elite9 never left the podium without a one-two finish in both the NZ Series and the Championship event in its first season. Since then it’s only moved on to bigger and better things internationally.

Elite9 rider height range = 5ft6" to 6ft, or 168cm to 183cm.

Strengths:    The Spec is fantastic for the price, FSA gravity, Sram XO, a proper Downhill racing machine, the pedal/sprint on the elite 9 is exellent, very stable over jumps aswell, well balanced bike

Weaknesses:    the innertubes and thats all, the bike is that good!

Bottom Line:   
If you a privateer racer and want a bike that is ready to go with a top spec for a good price then get one of these weapons! this bike wipes the floor with all my previous bikes ive had, will definatly be sticking with an elite 9 for a while
