Details

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.
