The Dartmoor Blackbird Pro really is a no-compromise Enduro Killer. With its low centre of gravity, long front triangle, coupled with a linear suspension design and Rockshox Pike RCT3 fork and Monarch RC3 shox the Blackbird Pro will ensure a fast, controlled ride! Demolishing the fastest lines and railing berms. But as we know, it’s not all smashing those downhill runs!
The Blackbird Pro is designed and equipped to ensure technical climbs are cleared with ease. The 11-speed SRAM GX/NX group set, Sniper rims, Maxxis Minion DHF EXO tires, SRAM brakes and 170mm Reverb seat post ensure this bike is ready to tackle anything you put in front of it straight out of the box.
Included offset shock hardware allows adjusting geometry in high or low position to tune the frame to your individual preferences.
