Miscellaneous

Firebird version 3

dw-link suspension with patented position-sensitive anti-squat

Variable chainstay lengths and kinematics for each frame size

Vertical shock layout allows for a more compact frame design that's stiffer, lighter, and has a more centralized, lower center of gravity

Independent strength to weight analysis for each frame achieves consistent performance metrics

Variable tube sizing and custom-tuned carbon lay-up scales stiffness across all sizes

Proprietary ride tuning fits riders from 5'2" to 6'9"+ with frame sizes from Small through XLarge

Progressive shock rate optimized for high volume air shocks and coil applications

Flip chip adjustability with "High" and "Low" settings changing the BB height from 355.8mm to 350mm and steepens the head and seat angles by 0.6 degrees

Pivot Dock Tool System, an on-the-bike tool system created in collaboration with Topeak puts the essentials under the top tube or BB

Dock Tool System available as Dock Ninja CO2, Dock Ninja Tool Box T16+, or Dock Ninja Toll Box Mini 20 Pro

Compatible with mixed-wheel size setup and with 27.5" wheels in the "High" flip-chip setting (needs a 17mm extended headset cup for 27.5" in the front)

The maximum travel length that can be used on the Firebird is 180mm and it's not dual-crown compatible

Uses a SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH)

FOX Live Valve integration built into frame
