Airborne Bicycles (United States) - Press Release: Coming in hot, the all-new Airborne Plague 27.5 is our do-it-all beast, ready and willing to go anywhere in any conditions.
An all-aluminum frame with 160mm of Rockshox supplied suspension is paired with a 170mm-travel fork on the front end to provide creature comforts and take the jolts of the trail in stride. Internal cable routing keeps your nose clean. A X-Fusion Manic dropper post is standard equipment to keep your pedal stroke on point. Perpetual motion is controlled by SRAM in the form of an Eagle 1x12 drivetrain and Level T hydraulic disc brakes. On the business end, sealed bearing hubs are laced to 28-hole alloy rims with burly Kenda Hellkat, 27.5 x 2.6” tires that climb like a billy goat and provide limitless traction.
If you’re looking for a bike with some girth and grit that can hold up to your demands, look no further than the Airborne Plague.
