Monterey, Calif., April 15, 2010 - Airborne® Bicycles, the new face in high-performance mountain bikes, will make its industry debut with the launch of six new bikes at this year’s Sea Otter Classic. To introduce the brand to the biking community, Airborne and its recently selected Flight Crew members will be on-site April 15 – 18, in Monterey, Calif., to give riders the first look along with a chance to take a test ride.
“We are really excited to showcase our great new line of bikes to all the riders at the Sea Otter Classic,” said Reed Pike, Airborne brand manager. “Each model features 6061 aluminum frames and carefully selected high-performance parts. Whether it’s a hard tail or single pivot suspension, we’ve developed a great line for a wide range of riders.”
For the hard tail fanatic, Airborne offers riders two options, the Specter and Specter Sport. Both include a strong, durable aluminum frame and are built to handle all the twists and turns of the trail. The Specter features a SR Suntour fork with an 8-speed SRAM X-4 drive train. Its counterpart, the Specter Sport, offers riders a RockShox Dart 2 fork and 9-speed SRAM X-5 drive train.
Riders looking for a suspension bike now have a few more options with Airborne’s new Zeppelin, Zeppelin Elite and Marauder. The Zeppelin features 125mm of travel, a RockShox Dart 2 fork, Marzocchi coil F rear shock and a Really Red frame. Airborne’s 125mm travel Zeppelin Elite includes a RockShox fork and rear shock, 9-speed SRAM X-7 trigger shifters and a ghost-like, White Light paint scheme. Finally, the Marauder, with its cool Jet Blast Blue paint job and 150mm rear travel offers a Marzocchi rear shock, Spinner CARGO 340 fork and SRAM drive train.
For the speed freak looking to fly down the mountain, check out Airborne’s new TAKA (Japanese for Falcon). This downhill specific mountain bike has performance at its core, offering a full 200mm of suspension travel, premium parts and a very cool matte Desert Tan paint scheme to match the dirt on the trails. It’s built to handle even the gnarliest descents with ease while giving riders a thrilling and premium experience.
