Now we are reimagining full suspension. Spot’s patented Living Link system couples a leaf spring with the main pivot to improve pedaling efficiency and enhance the linkage’s energy return, providing a boost atop the spring curve that powers you over roots and rocks. The leaf spring stiffens the frame laterally by acting as a horizontal shear plane. It also eliminates the lower rear pivot set seen on short dual link designs. Your mechanic can thank us for that one. Not only is the efficiency, traction, and handling dramatically improved, the bike takes on square edged obstacles with buttery ease.
Spot’s imaginative spirit and attention to detail has paid off. Our bikes have won week-long stage races, powered countless weekend rampages, and enabled commuters to enjoy their daily route. Publications like Bicycling, Bike Mag, Pinkbike, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired, Outside, Mountain Bike Action, and more have praised Spot’s ingenuity. But we are not just obsessed engineering nerds. We also ride hard, bagging 250,000 feet of elevation per year per employee! We love to earn our turns! We call Golden, Colorado home, because there are trails right out our door. We bike to win, but moreover we bike to live.
