THE SMASH V2
We are excited to announce The Smash V2 with updates to geometry, kinematics, and travel. The updates build on The Smash’s breadth of capabilities, making our best selling all-arounder even more versatile. We took rider feedback into careful consideration to make changes where change matters.
"The Smash is my anywhere-anytime bike. When I'm headed out for a big day that could be filled with a variety of terrain and riding, it's what I choose. From gnarly, far-out double black tech trails and big mountain lines, to cruising local flow trails on my way down to the valley. The Smash is my go-to adventure rig and is ready for anything I throw its way."
improved ride quality
Using Revved Carbon’s unique vibration damping properties in the front triangle and swingarm, the ride feels smooth and in-control. Riders will also notice snappier handling due to a 50% increase in lateral stiffness vs. the previous alloy swingarm. All of this while saving 90 grams.
The updated suspension platform is softer off the top and uses the improved anti-squat kinematics for a supportive pedaling platform that maintains good traction on technical climbs. This combo means The Smash V2 is comfortable for long days in the saddle, exploring the backcountry.
The main pivot location was moved to concentrate higher anti-squat values in the climbing position, and decreasing chain growth deeper into the travel. Combined with additional suspension progression and more travel, The Smash V2 gains efficiency on the climbs and a more bottomless feel on the descents.
MODULAR FRAME KITS
The V2 Smash continues to build on our unique Modular Frame Platform, where sustainably minded design meets high tech engineering. This platform provides an alternative way for riders to approach their bike quiver.
The V2 Smash rear triangle is compatible with current Revved front triangles. Aftermarket kits will be available in the coming months, in both current and past colorways.
