The Australian-designed Bilt 8 DH bike has been rallied by young pinner, Luke Ellison, at the 2014 Australian National rounds. The 200mm-travel frame features a linkage-driven single pivot design, called the CT Link, and features a stock 64-degree head angle. The frames come with a Cane Creek Double Barrel rear shock and AngleSet which allows for +/- 1.5-degree head angle adjustments. BB height comes in at 340mm (13.3-inch) with 440mm (17.3-inch) chainstays and the frame is compatible with 650b/27.5-inch wheels.

Luke runs a BoXXer World Cup up front, Maxxis tires and Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes. Renthal bars and direct mount stem keep him holding on.
