Eurobike 2015: Knolly

by 1

After a number of years of carbon testing and refinement, Knolly bikes would not give up until “the character felt like a Warden,” and now the hardcore Canadians have done it…

Introducing the first carbon Warden- which will accompany the already established aluminium model, Delirium Chilcotin and Endorphin offerings.

Knolly’s Fourby4 suspension system remains a key component of the ride character

The bike is broadly pitched as a 150mm trail, enduro, all-mountain slayer and built predominantly in carbon but with aluminium chainstays. The geometry matches that of its full aluminium sibling.

Replaceable, underside plate to prevent rock strike, frame and BB damage. Removal of this also presents a secondary bolt-on-plate and inner frame chamber, for cable routing and Di2 battery storage
Knolly
150mm of travel. Internal and external cable routing, for all manor of configuration options

ISCG 05 chain guide tabs with MRP chainguard in situ. The frame is manufactured in the same factory as the aluminium bikes, partly to ensure tight quality control on output

Cane Creek DB-Inline shock, fitted in the ‘neutral’ slot. One of the two ride adjustment positions
