HB.916 (V2)

The HB916 bike is our 160mm rear travel bike. It would be wrong to assume the HB916 is a successor to the original HB160 bike as its DNA is very different and so should be treated as a whole new bike.

The HB916 bike has been designed with Enduro Racing in mind, taking into account its wide variety of terrains and formats. Engineered so a racer can be fast not only on a quick 2 min stage but also on a 20 min mega stage on terrain varying from Scottish Moors to Alpine descents.

Our focus was on making the bike to be efficient, balanced, predictable, and easy to ride to save racers precious energy on long day races, enabling them to focus and make the difference when it matters the most.


Updates for HB916 V2

The 2024 HB916 features a number of updates aimed at elevating the performance and building on the success of the original bike.

The biggest update is the compatibility with Sram T-Type, made possible with the integration of an additional lower pulley. This innovation effectively mitigates lower chain run growth while enhancing dynamic kinematics, ensuring smoother rides and optimized power transfer.

Despite these updates, the 2024 HB916 maintains its versatility by retaining compatibility with non t-type drivetrains, catering to diverse riding preferences with  either 52 or 55mm chainlines,. Moreover, the larger sizes now come equipped with extended chainstays, guaranteeing a consistent geometry balance across all sizes for enhanced stability and control.
In addition to the performance upgrades, the 2024 HB916 introduces a revamped butty box featuring a the Fidlock mechanism. This design not only ensures improved retention of essential gear but also simplifies access.
Aesthetically, the 2024 HB916 will come with updated color options, and build options featuring Ohlins suspension and Sram XO transmission.
