Fast and Furious – you better hold on.
With a long line of world cup winning heritage behind it, the 327 is the newest development of our iconic downhill race models.
Our through-the-downtube shock mount has been tuned to fit a 250mm metric shock and to give us the scope to position the single-pivot exactly where it needs to be in relation to the drive-train. This delivers the small bump performance and big-hit plushness that demanding racers require. We've also increased rear wheel travel to 200mm. The frame’s shock curve is a smooth ramp, allowing easy rear shock set-up, something that is often hampered by variable suspension paths. With the 327, suspension tuning is easily done with the suspension unit, making performance tweaks simple and straight-forward on the fly.
With its 27.5 wheels, the 327's geometry locates the bottom bracket 20mm lower than the axle line at rest. This head start gives the bike a confident ‘dug in’ feel when pushing hard through turns while also keeping the centre of gravity low for high speed stability.
