Trinity MTB on Their Wild High-Pivot Prototypes (Ep.125)

Trinity MTB’s wild V2 high-pivot prototype can serve dual-duty as an Enduro or DH bike, with or without a gearbox — to say nothing of the 3D printed construction, or any of the other fascinating design details. So we sat down with Trinity’s Chase Warner and Mic Williams to hear all about what is one of the most interesting bikes out there; learn the story behind its development; and get some teasers about the V3 bike, which they promise will be even wilder.

  1. The bikes look sick. I’m very interested to see these come to market. I haven’t tried one of those effigear gear boxes but I love the idea of one. I’m not sure how I’d like a gearbox on the trail though.

  2. Regarding the travel settings on the new bike; If the sag is the same, and the spring rate is the same along with the leverage curve and everything else, why bother changing the settings at all? Is having more travel at the bottom somehow a detriment when enduro racing? Would you actually use the bottom out of the travel as a benefit? Maybe I missed something else that is different between the two settings.
