Equipped with robust and technical parts, nothing can stop you from doing Slopestyle or riding in a bike park. Your mates are waiting, it’s time to venture.
THE JESTER – time for heroes.
THE JESTER 1 is our absolute fun bike for slopestyle beginners – wild and untamed! A high-quality frame with sophisticated, strong rear stay builds the basis for lasting downhill pleasure. Important are of course good components, too, which the THE JESTER 1 has without doubt! To start with, it comes with an excellent fork, the Manitou Circus Expert. With this suspension fork, Manitou has launched a fork that is especially designed for slopestyle and dirt jump and which has already become a big success. The Circus Expert represents the ideal compromise between weight, suspension performance and stability. The 100 mm travel come with a stiff factory setting, however, the fork can be easily tuned to suit your personal preferences and the prevailing terrain perfectly. Another quality product is fitted at the rear: a Rock Shock Monarch RT shock. Its slim design impresses with high resilience and easy adjustment. Its responding qualities are outstanding and offer perfect traction even on the toughest track.
When it’s getting serious THE JESTER 2 takes up the fight. With 90 mm of travel at the rear and sophisticated bearing technology at the pivot points, the bike combines the stability of a hardtail with the suspension comfort of a full-susser. It is easy to handle, responds quickly and pushes you on a new Slopestyle level. The sensational Rock Shox Pike DJ 26" Solo Air is mainly responsible for the bike’s low weight and impressive performance. The high-end fork is setup extremely progressive and still leaves room for tuning. The integrated Charger damper prevents bottoming out when jumping, the Solo Air spring even easily manages highest jumps. The 35 mm chassis is extremely robust and made from magnesium – this makes the fork extremely lightweight, it tips the scales at under 1900 grams! A robust fork needs a robust crankset and we opted for the Holzfeller OCT 1.1. The singlespeed chainring has 32 teeth, the crank arms are made from high-strength aluminium – these are components you can rely on!
