These aspiring DH riders need a bike that balances big-travel capability with confident positioning. They love to attack downhill tracks with abandon, looking to tame the steepest descents and gnarliest terrain. Whether just shredding resort downhill parks or jumping into an occasional race, they want high-end technology and spec, with a reasonable price tag.

All new, lightweight, M4 alloy frame with 135mm rear end, 1.5” head tube, and ISCG tabs.

To offer a super strong and light, high-value DH frame that boasts great compatibility through features like high-quality chain guides and standard-size rear hubs for easy replacement/upgrade.

Taking notes from the Monster team on geometry we were able to dial this geo for DH racing with a slack, low-centre-of-gravity profile. Combining that with a best bang-for-the-buck approach, we can spec this bike with race-ready, industry-standard components so riders can keep it stock or personalize it for their style with ease.

The strongest and lightest components available, expressly designed for the DH experience.

Makes the Status as strong and light as possible, without sacrificing value or compatibility with industry-standard interfaces (so aftermarket components will still fit). Helps riders maximize attainable speeds, while considerably reducing risk.

Working closely with the Monster Energy team and various manufacturers allows us to dial the spec to work in perfect concert with the Demo platform. We test the components at every stage of development and make adjustments to elicit customized performance from the custom-tuned suspension, wheels, crankset, etc.

FSR suspension with four bar linkage tuned for downhill racing.

This setup provides race-ready suspension performance for the sick speeds and obstacles these riders face, while keeping the cost down.

The linkage is set up to handle large, high-speed hits with a smooth linear feel. It was designed by the “Czar of FSR” Jason Chamberlain—who has more experience working with DH suspension than anyone in the world—to meet the demands of the sports most demanding downhill terrain.
