The HD6 is the evolution of one of the most successful enduro bikes in history. Designed with input from our Enduro World Cup team and building upon our award-winning Ripmo and HD lines, the HD6 features increased travel, a completely redesigned suspension layout, and mixed wheels.
The 29″ front wheel, bolstered by 180mm of travel, assures stability, whereas the 27.5″ rear wheel allows for additional maneuverability. The 165mm of travel skillfully manages any fallout. With a 64 degree head tube angle (one degree slacker than the current Ripmo), a BB height similar to Mojo HD5, and chainstay length identical to the current Ripmo (despite the 27.5″ rear wheel), the bike maintains an equilibrium between agility and stability.
In order to place every size rider in the same position over the rear wheel, the HD’s seat tube angles get steeper as frame size increases. With four sizes, this would have resulted in larger jumps in reach, so we added a fifth size. The smaller increments across five sizes means that you can find just the right size. We encourage riders to choose their bike size based on their desired reach and top tube measurements.
Our upper link suspension layout is progressive enough to be sensitive off the top, yet supportive enough for the biggest hits. It is also compatible with all coil shocks, for those longer race stages that can tax air shock performance.
Light Weight Premium Carbon
All our bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance — no matter how much you spend. The HD6 frame is sub 6 lbs without shock and our complete Enduro ready builds weigh as little as 32 lbs.
