The DV9 is our lightweight carbon do-anything, go-anywhere hardtail. With down-country geometry and massive tire clearance, you can rip a training loop Friday, race Saturday, and roost Sunday.
DV9 - The DV in the name stands for development, because this is a bike you can grow with. Whether you’ve got race day aspirations or are just out there enjoying the ride.
Compared to our previous hardtail, the reach on the DV9 has grown by 20–24mm depending on size. We also slackened the head tube to 67.4° with a 120mm fork and 68.5° with a 100mm fork. These numbers give the bike a confident feel at speed, without compromising light, and crisp handling.
Race tape, root fest, or both. Your choice. You can line up for race day in confidence with a 100mm Fox Stepcast fork w/?remote lockout and 2.25” fast guy tires. Or, shralp past your buddies on their full suspension rigs with a 120mm Fox Rhythm 34 and physics-defying 2.6” tires.
Whether you prefer the cushy and confident ride that 2.6” tires deliver or the blazing speed of weight-conscious 2.25” rubber, we’ve got you covered.
