As you might guess, Durango Bike Co. is based in Colorado, home of some of the best trails on the planet which makes for a great place to build and test new bikes. The Blackjack 29er features 120mm rear travel and 130mm front with some aggressive angles thrown in to keep things fun.

Using the new 148mm Boost rear hub standard allowed the brand to get the chainstays down to just 16.7-inches, keeping the ride playful and maneuverable despite being a 29er.

27.5+ is also an option for those looking to try something new. Three builds are available ranging from $4,500 to $6,500.

There's also a 160mm travel 27.5 Moonshine for those looking for a heavier hitting machine. We dig Chad Cheeney's custom Bronco's paint job. All bikes are made in-house.
