Forbidden Bikes Guide

Forbidden Dreadnought GX Ziggy Edition
$7,299.00
ETA for this model is early January The Ziggy Link-equipped Dreadnought GX, our ready-to-rock mixed wheel size brawler, takes the corner slaying credentials of the Druid GX and applies them to a platform that’s ready for anything. Featuring our signature ‘One Ride’ proportional geometry not only ensures a consistent ride experience, regardless of size or stature but also amplifies what the Dreadnought GX can do on the trail. Separated by more than just a 27.5in rear wheel, the Dreadnought GX goes further, knocking 0.4 degrees off the head angle and dropping the bottom bracket by 6mm compared to its full 29er siblings. If the intentions of the Dreadnought GX were in any doubt, the Fox 38 Grip2-equipped fork, X2 Float shock, SRAM Code RSC brakes, GX 12-speed drivetrain and the Maxxis Assegai/DHR tire combo, should establish that it’s here to party.
Forbidden Druid XT
$6,799.00
The no holds barred Druid XT was specced from the ground up with performance and rock-solid reliability in mind, two elements you’ll want when you hit the terrain this tearaway was designed for. Our ‘One Ride’ geometry philosophy ensures consistent sizing across the spectrum, giving riders of all shapes and sizes a shared ride experience aboard the Druid. The 65.6-degree head tube angle, an ‘actual’ seat tube angle and stack height that increases per size back this up and the front and rear centres, which similarly grow per size, dish out one of the most balanced rides going. With 150mm travel up front and 130mm in the rear, combined with a suspension system that eliminates unwanted and detrimental drivetrain forces, the Druid XT will be begging you to go places few trail bikes dare.
Forbidden Druid GX
$5,999.99 - $6,699.00 $6,599.00 - $6,699.00 Up to 10% Off
The Ziggy Link-equipped Druid GX, our first out-of-the-box, ready-to-rip, mixed wheel size hell-raiser, takes the corner slaying abilities of the full-29er Druid and turns them up to 11. Featuring our signature ‘One Ride’ proportional geometry not only ensures a consistent ride experience, regardless of size or stature but also amplifies what the Druid GX can do on the trail. Separated by more than just a 27.5in rear wheel, the Druid GX goes further, knocking 0.5 degrees off the head angle and dropping the bottom bracket by 4mm compared to its full 29er siblings. If the intentions of the Druid GX were in any doubt, the Crankbrothers front and rear tuned Synthesis wheels, full SRAM GX 12-speed transmission and G2 four-piston anchors should go some way to establish that it’s here to party. 01 CARBON CONSTRUCTION As the heart of any frame, the quality of the carbon construction is paramount to both ride quality and durability. To this end, we partnered with one of the leading manufacturers in the business which allows us to stand behind our product 100%. 02 HARDWARE Our hardware is a testament to our attention to detail, from the forged Rate Control linkages to the custom stainless steel screws that hold everything together, we have spared no expense in the finishing of the Druid leaving nothing to chance. 03 CABLE ROUTING We don’t discriminate against rightys or leftys and our adaptable cable routing allows you to neatly route the Druid’s cables and hoses no matter where in the world you come from or with what hand you operate your rear brake with. 04 REAR SHOCK COMPATIBILITY The Druid comes equipped with a custom-tuned Fox DPX2 shock, but if your heart is set on something a bit more ‘heavy-hitting’, we have you covered. There is enough room in the Druid to fit the largest of air shocks with a leverage curve that is coil ready from the get-go. 05 WATER BOTTLE FITMENT Even our smallest Druid frame size can fit a full-size 26oz water bottle, regardless of your rear shock reservoir. Remember, hydration is your friend, but sweaty backs most definitely are not. 06 FRAME PROTECTION A quiet bike is a fast bike and a clean bike is less prone to problems, so we developed a full suite of custom frame protection to keep the noisy bits quiet and the hard to clean bits free from crud. 07 CHAIN GUIDE SOLUTION All that high pivot goodness requires a solid chain retention solution so we turned to the chainguide experts over at ethirteen to develop a retention system specifically for the Druid. 08 ACCESSORY MOUNT The ‘under the top tube’ mounting screws allow for the attachment of various accessory mounting solutions; pump, tools, a banana, the kitchen sink, go crazy, just don’t hang a water bottle there. 09 THREADED BB Sometimes the old ways are the best ways. 10 148 REAR HUB SPACING Boosting 29” rear wheel stiffness since 2015.
Forbidden Ziggy Link
$139.99
The Ziggy Link allows Forbidden Druid and Dreadnought owners the ability to apply the business up front, party out back mixed wheel size approach to their bikes. Replacing the lower link from the two-part Rate Control linkage, the Ziggy Link recalibrates the geometry to accept a smaller 27.5in rear wheel and immediately converts your 29er into a mullet sporting corner slayer. ZIGGY LINK | FAQ What tools are required to install the Ziggy Link? Torque wrench (up to 14Nm) 5 & 6mm Allen torque bits 5 & 6mm Allen keys Lithium-based grease Can a home mechanic install the Ziggy Link? Yes, it’s a fairly straightforward job for a competent home mechanic and there are no bearings in the lower link, but due to the nature of a suspension linkage, it is imperative that torque settings are adhered to. We, therefore, recommend that work should not be attempted without a torque wrench and the knowledge to use it accordingly. For a professional shop mechanic, this is a quick and simple job and if you’re friends with your local Forbidden dealer, perhaps buy them some beers (or cookies) and they might do it for you. Does the Ziggy Link change the Druid/Dreadnought’s geometry? We have offset any changes to the kinematics but the geometry is marginally lower and slacker.
