FINALLY! Atherton's New Downhill Bike Fully Revealed
After weeks of teasing us with their new bike, Gee Atherton finally gives us the legit, full reveal of the Atherton Bikes downhill prototype. The reveal of the DW6 configuration wasn't a huge surprise, as that's what Robot Bike Co. used in the past and it's what we were able to sneak out of accidentally leaked videos, but now we get to see the bike squish in all its glory, as Gee discusses how the bike is built with 3D printing, titanium lugs and carbon tubes. The bike gets 200mm of travel and is currently the third prototype, so they called it the P3. Right now it has a 63-degree head angle with "really long" reach. There's an adjustable headset for +/- 6mm movement. FOX suspension, Continental tires, Trickstuff's Direttissima Brakes and SRAM drivetrain with FSA cranks and Stan's wheels round out the build. We have a Vital RAW on the way with Gee ripping the prototype bike, and he looks good on it, as evidenced by the action clips here.
