The class clown that gets straight a's
The Smuggler loves to goof off, occasionally get into trouble, but ace anything you throw in front of it

The Smuggler is our mid travel 29er trail bike that defies categorization. It is our go-to bike for not only epic long distance rides but also rowdy local trails and our favorite jump lines. With 120mm rear travel and 140mm front, it can adapt in any direction to whatever the days ride throws at you. Super lightweight and playful, the Smuggler is one of our best pedaling bikes we make that also loves to monster truck through the rough stuff. When it comes time to get the wheels off the ground, it begs to get thrown around and launch off lips with little effort. For anyone that needs incredible versatility from their bike and loves to pedal, the Smuggler is designed to never disappoint.

Speed Balanced Geometry

SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

GIDDYUP 2.0HH SUSPENSION

Take our successful GiddyUp suspension system, add one part increased pedaling efficiency, two parts wider sag range, and three parts increased small bump sensitivity, and you get GiddyUp 2.0HH. Incredible pedaling performance balanced with a superb neutral, comfortable and fun feel that we're known for.

We specifically tuned the suspension with a moderate amount of chain growth which is highest at the sag point and decreasing deeper into the travel. Because of this finely tuned wheel path, there is a notable increase in traction when climbing, without the rider noticing the chain growth fighting the suspension movement.

GiddyUp 2.0HH is extremely easy to setup and it provides excellent support throughout the entire stroke of the shock so you can use all your travel without worrying about bottom out. Designed to be active while climbing, rear shock climbing platforms are not necessary. The suspension remains free to smooth out the trail, improve traction and control without sacrificing efficiency. With GiddyUp 2.0HH you can focus on the trail, no remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.




"So, what is the Smuggler? It's not an XC weapon or an enduro rally machine. It does what it wants, where it wants and has a damn good time doing it. It makes its own rules and follows the trends it set. Upon first glance, it might appear a bit out there, but as it blasts past on the trail, all you'll see is a party in the woods going down-one you'll definitely want to get in on." - Bike Magazine Click here for the full review


"The Smuggler really eggs you on, and expert riders will love the way it combines the extra feedback of a tighter, poppier rig with the ability to be rallied at warp speeds in serious terrain. It may only have 120mm of travel, but it still has the silkiness and muscle you need when pushing hard downhill. It feels supple and lively, but always supportive as well." - Mountain Biking UK Magazine Click here for the full review


"The Smuggler is all about fun, first and foremost. It's a bike that encourages its rider to goof off, whether that's by seeing how many mid-trail manuals you can pull, or trying to find out just how hard you can smash into a bermed corner. Sure, you can't go rocketing full blast into a minefield of rocks and expect to come out the other side as easily as you would on an enduro race machine, but that's not what this bike is all about. Instead, it's about finding the bonus lines, the hidden lips and landings that make a familiar trail even more entertaining. " - Mike Kazimer/Pinbike.com Click here for the full review


"Transition trail bikes have become known for their aggressive, descending-oriented handling and the Smuggler rings true in that regard. Simply get the Smuggler up to speed and it charges through rough terrain with the stability and ease of a bike with considerably more travel." - THE BIKE BIBLE REVIEW Click here for the full review
