The new Thunderbird Superenduro bikes roll on 29” wheels, with 170mm of rear travel and 180mm of front travel. A well-designed frame with modern geometry, working with Fox Performance series suspension, literally smooths out the terrain. It’s a super-fast machine but gives plenty of control even on the most demanding trails.

THUNDERBIRD SUPERENDURO - GENERAL INFO
Super-enduro. It says it all. With this aluminum beast, you are ready to huck whatever you want on the track. 170mm of travel in the back and up to 190mm in the front ensure enough room for errors and party laps. Simple Horst link design built around proven four-bar suspension is balanced for pedal efficiency and braking to shred factor. It is not a do-it-all marketing scheme bike. We like our bikes to be as progressive and stiff as possible, ready to jump over roots rather than be glued to them. 29-inch wheels with 148x12mm Boost hubs are already an overkill to ride over rough terrain. Our Enduro Team rider uses Thunderbird Superenduro both for Downhill and EWS races during a season. Not a UCI fan? Want to be really bad? Put a double crown on it and ride like it's 2010's freeride golden age again!
For keeping the frame trouble-free, all pivot points are working on the stiff axles mounted on the sealed Max type bearings. The progressive suspension design is perfect for both types of shocks: spring shocks and large volume air shocks. The construction reduces also the negative impact of braking on the suspension operation. If you look for some more tech talk - the head tube is ready to take the new generation of 1.8" tapered forks with 68-69mm crowns and the dropout is compatible with the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH).
