Rallon was forged on the racecourse and is the obvious choice of our EDR race team, but Rallon is always ready for fun outside of the tape and loves fast laps with friends, high-5 ́s and near misses. Fearless, Rallon is up for hitting the biggest gaps in the park, smashing berms, and scorning braking bumps. Forget limits, forget distractions, just focus on fast.


  • Intended Use: Enduro, Park, Big Mountain Wheel Size: 29” or Mullet
  • Material: OMR Carbon Travel: 167mm (rear) / 170mm (front)
  • Sizes: S, M, L, XL


NEW GEOMETRY: The new Rallon increases its travel from 160 mm to 167 mm and achieves greater absorption capacity on the demanding UCI EDR courses. It also has more aggressive geometry with a more aggressive steering angle that goes from 64º to 63.5º. Improvements that make the fastest Enduro machine even faster.

NEW COLORS and BUILDS: Rallon releases new graphics as well as two new colors Forest Green - Blue Stone and Mars Red - Black. As if that weren't enough, the SRAM AXS is also available on the M11 and M-LTD models.



Enduro racing continues to evolve, with more aggressive tracks, and Rallon evolves too. The latest update offers more travel and more aggressive geometry to help riders push harder for longer.

- LONG, LOW AND SLACK: The 63.5º or 64º head angle, 485mm reach on the large frame and 28mm or 35mm BB drop give Rallon incredible stability at speed and natural cornering.

- LOW STANDOVER: The seat tube is uninterrupted and also shorter, giving lower standover than ever. The Rallon is designed to work with 200mm

dropper posts.

- STEEP SEAT ANGLE: The steep seat tube helps improve the pedaling position and stability on the climbs as well as working better with long dropper posts.

- ADJUSTABLE: Rallon continues with it’s LOW and LOWER positions which riders love.



STEEP AND DEEP: When things get steep you want to drop your saddle deep out of the way and just focus on fast! More space to move your body means more control and more control means more speed. But low saddles mean long droppers which need short seat tubes. The trick is achieving this without affecting either seat post insertion or frame geometry. With its steep seat tube and deep insertion Rallon has one of the lowest standovers around, meaning lots of space for your choice of long travel dropper posts. Get that saddle right out of the way when things get steep and deep, long travel droppers are the only way.

Rallon is available in four sizes, S, M, L and XL, and thanks to Steep and Deep you can pick between sizes to get your preferred reach. Choose a larger size to maximise stability, or go with a smaller size for a more playful Rallon. Most riders will be able to pick between two or three sizes and will be able to fit a 200mm dropper post.

PARTY OUT BACK?: Interested in sporting a mullet with your new Rallon? Choose 27.5" or 29" rear wheels without affecting geometry using the two included shock extenders. Focus on fast with 29" or focus on fun with 27", whatever you choose the Rallon has you covered.

LOCKR FRAME STORAGE: Leave your pack at home and just focus on fast! Rallon is packed with clever storage spaces for all the essential tools and water you need for shorter rides or enduro races. The full sized water bottle is easy to reach. Packless runs are fast and fun.

In the downtube LOCKR zone we have two sealed bags, with tube, tyre levers and space for two C02 cartridges. Additionally the main pivot and rear axle are filled with cleverly designed tools, held securely with magnets. With a tube, tyre repair, tube, hex keys from 3 to 6mm and a T25, all held securely in space, Rallon is fully equipped.

FOCUS ON FAST: Racing is all about focus and you don’t need to be distracted by the noise your bike is making. The only noise you want to hear is the crowd cheering. The Rallon uses custom co-moulded plastic protectors to shield the frame from impacts and remove chain noise. Cable noise is eliminated using internal cable guides, improved silicon plugs at the frame entry and exit points and clever conduits linking the front and rear triangle. This attention to the details means you can focus on just riding fast.

PRECISION TRACKING: Frame rigidity affects feel and grip and it is possible to have a frame which is too stiff to track the terrain efficiently. Manipulating the carbon weave allows us to control flexibility without sacrificing strength, giving a perfectly balanced front and rear triangle stiffness. A lot of technology, modeling and testing which translates to confidence and grip on rough cambered terrain and valuable fractions in race runs.

FULLY SEALED BEARINGS: Everyone hates changing bearings. Normally bearings fail due to being dirty, not overloaded, and with Rallon we have worked hard to seal all the bearings. Clean bearings last longer and also keep the suspension working optimally when the conditions are filthy.




Totally revised suspension kinematics give a more progressive suspension curve with a more rearward axle path which, combined with 167mm of rear travel is hard to beat; fast and agile in the turns with plenty of control and traction in the rough. Add the beefy Fox 38 fork and Rallon is ready for whatever you have in mind.



A high starting leverage rate gives a plush and active feel combined with terrific traction. A progressive curve controls the bike in full-travel situations - the inevitable big hits that come along with pointing a capable bike down a rocky trail.


A more forward pivot point increases the backwards component of the axle path, particularly in the first part of the travel. The Rallon floats through square hits with ease, maintaining speed and minimising fatigue.


Anti-rise and anti-squat are kept largely the same because our racers love the way the bike remains active under braking and sprints out of slower speed turns.
