Our new Fugitive 138 gets updated Geo

When the Fugitive was launched in 2018, it was our first 29er and the first model to kick off our 5th Generation Fourby4 suspension design.


Skip forward 3 years and we’re incredibly proud to release the next version of the Fugitive with some significant changes to the geometry. These fresh updates give the Fugitive an improved positioning for climbing and an even better ride performance on the downs.

 

We’ve increased the reach in the cockpit, adjusted the seat tube angle, and incorporated a slacker head tube angle. All of these improvements culminate into the rider being more in-the-bike of this versatile 29er.

UPDATED GEO

The front end geometry gets a complete overhaul and the head angle is reduced by 0.5 degrees, the seat tube angle is increased a full degree and the effective top tube length is lengthened proportionally for each frame size.

 

All of these changes contribute to a substantial increase in reach and wheelbase, providing a roomier cockpit while improving high speed stability and allowing the rider to be in a more aggressive position. The steeper seat tube angle and increased reach makes it feel even more competent and comfortable on long steep climbs. While the Fugitive is still a highly proficient technical trail bike, we didn't want to remove the "trail" from its abilities.  

MORE TRAVEL

We’ve bumped up the travel slightly and the Fugitive now features 138mm of rear travel and 150mm on the front for balanced performance.

 

After seeing many of our riders over-fork the previous Fugitive, the geometry improvements now allow for better compatibility with 160mm forks. For those riders seeking a burly adventurous set up with a little less travel, the Fugitive can also run 131mm of rear travel and a 140mm fork.
*due to supply chain challenges (50mm stroke shocks) 131mm Fugitives are not available.

Fourby4 Suspension

We use our most advanced Fourby4 suspension technology and deliver the highest quality of suspension travel available, with a fully progressive curve that will easily manage the biggest hits while maintaining initial sensitivity and Knolly’s acclaimed mid stroke support. 

 

Our Fourby4 suspension is designed to reduce the effect of brake “squat” thereby enabling the wheel to maintain contact with the ground and maximizing speed through the most challenging terrain. And our legendary pedalling traction is fine-tuned to ensure consistent pedaling performance - even in the jank - so you can get on the gas whenever you need to eliminate another second off your time.
