Product Description

Warning Yellow or Black Plague. Airborne's 8 inch travel DH frameset. 7000 series hydroformed and double-butted aluminum frame complete with X-Fusion Vector Coil HLR Shock.

Airborne has been developing the Pathogen for 2 years with input from many riders at local, national, and World Cup levels. It's modified 8 inch-travel single pivot suspension is super plush (at 240x76mm) and eats up the big hits with ease, while keeping brake feedback to a minimum. The double-butted 7000 series frame has been massaged and tweaked with rider feedback to include extra mud clearance, internal cable routing in the rear for both derailleur and brakes, and replaceable left and right drop-outs. All pivot points use sealed bearings with dust caps.

The 64 degree HT angle coupled with an effective 72 degree ST angle makes for a neutral handling bike that's great on both your local gravity scene and a World Cup level event.

The Pathogen frameset includes a FSA Orbit headset, tuned X-Fusion Vector Coil HLR Shock with 5pc bushings, 3 different spring rates, and rear 150x12mm Maxle. It comes in two colors: Warning Yellow and Black Plague.

How do you feel about the cost of the Pathogen?

The airborne Taka I believe was $1500, which was a complete bike. The airborne Pathogen is $1600 for a frame and rear shock. I was thinking about buying an entry level-low cost downhill bike that would be priced around the cost of the Taka. Now it seems if I went the airborne downhill route I wou ... Read More »
