WILDCAT 125 (V3) Aluminum

(Some components in these photos may differ from the spec sheets. Please refer to the spec sheets below for accuracy)

Wildcat. It’s the name of our street (for real), and we always wanted to name a bike for it, but it never made sense until this 27.5+/29 beast was born. Like its namesake, the Wildcat is most comfortable scrambling up and down janky terrain deep in the woods, and it’s got big paws that deliver impossible grip.

That’s the poetry. For the math and science, we went back to school on this one and made some adjustments that turned this bike into the sure-footed cat that it is. The Wildcat now mates 125mm of rear travel with 140mm up front. Small but significant changes add up to better balance all around, in all situations, by tweaking generous reach numbers and geometry figures, namely 65* head tube and 76* seat tube angles.

A small change in leverage ratio, to give it a more planted feel in and out of the saddle. Two years of refining and testing gave us the feedback we needed to make it a better climber and more nimble descender, in both 27.5+ and 29 configurations.

V3 changes from the V2 include metric shock sizing 210×52.5 which increases the travel from 120mm to 125mm, a shorter and straighter seat tube on all sizes to allow longer dropper posts and internally routed cables in the front triangle.
