This Mountain Bike’s ‘Radical Suspension Design’  Nails Bumpy Landings and Enhances Performance

This is the Structure Cycleworks SCW1, a revolutionary mountain bike that’s considered to be “the most significant evolution in mountain bike chassis design since rear suspension.” Weighing about 32 lbs., this state-of-the-art mountain beast is a 27.5” wheeled, full carbon, full suspension, enduro bike with super-advanced framework.

From enduro racers to “weekend warriors,” riders can nail their bumpy and turbulent landings with ease – while showing off their skills. This is due to its reduced brake dive that leaves more suspension travel available for bump handling. Its “Without Telescoping Fork (WTF)” linkage suspension system rides as though it has travel in excess of 180mm. The SCW1 has 150mm of travel at both front and rear.



According to Structure Cycleworks, the WTF linkage rotates on 30 mm cartridge bearings and isolates the shock from bending loads, allowing the system to move with minimal friction over bumps while offering unprecedented control at the contact patch.
