Dual suspension platforms open up a whole new world of on-trail speed and control. Faultline combines our proven MP2 design, the suspension platform that’s won us numerous industry accolades and Bike of the Year awards, with 29″ wheels and a smart spec. It’s the perfect rig for the experienced hardtail rider looking to upgrade to a dual suspension bike, or for a new rider looking for a bit of a head start
The Faultline’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive side must be dropped & curved to clear the chainring, but running the non-drive side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle laterally. This design also helps improve tire clearance.
