The ULTRA was designed for a 100mm to 120mm travel suspension fork. As the frame is BOOST 148 Rear Spacing, we recommend speccing with a matching BOOST 110 Fork version.

We take great care in ensuring the rear shocks we supply with the ULTRA have been tuned and valved to compliment the kinematics and intended riding style of an ULTRA rider. We work closely with our suspension suppliers to ensure the shock supplied is correct and suitable for our frames. For this reason, we do not suggest changing the Rear Shock for an off-the-shelf product that has not been optimized for our frame’s kinematics.

Yes, yes and yes! At the time of the original design and brief of this new frame we felt strongly that some ULTRA ENDURANCE riders might prefer the option of running a 2x drivetrain. Whilst this feature posed some design challenges (to allow the derailleur to move freely without rubbing tyres etc) we are happy to confirm that the ULTRA can still fit a Front Derailleur for those riders who prefer the options that a 2x drivetrain can provide. Should you not wish to run a Front Derailleur the Alloy Tab can be removed for a cleaner look and also save some grams.

Below is a list of key sizes/specs for the relevant components:

  • Seatpost: 31.6 Diameter and Maximum Length of 400mm
  • Headset: Integrated Type, 42mm Upper Bearing, 52mm Lower Bearing (we supply a Headset with your Frame and suggest replacing with the same item)
  • Bottom Bracket: Threaded BSA 73mm Shell
  • Wheelset: Boost 148 Compatible
  • Maximum Tyre Size: 29 x 2.35 is the largest size tyre for this style of bike (based on Rim Internal Width of 23mm) Note: Other tyres/rim sizes might be able to fit but the onus is on the owner to check clearance before use to avoid damage to the frame
  • Front Derailleur: Shimano Side-Swing Direct Mount Type
  • Front Chainring Compatibility for 2x Drivetrains: SHIMANO M8050 B2 (Boost) 36/26T
  • Front Chainring Compatibility for 1x Drivetrains: SRAM XX1 Boost 148, Maximum 36T Chainring
  • Rear Disc Rotor: 160mm
