It’s dealer’s choice with the Status 160 frameset, but whatever the build, a good time is more than a safe bet. But that said, the odds of you being able to keep your poker face after getting a taste of the Status 160’s playful Mixed Wheel-Size Trail Geometry are awfully tall.
The traction and rolling speed of a 29-inch wheel on the front and the quick-to-flick, snappy ride feel of a 27.5-inch wheel in back may sound like were hedging our bets, but we’re really going all-in on fun.
And, by sticking to a frame design with an emphasis on simplicity and reliability we’ve ensured the fun flows unfiltered and free from distractions.
- With an eye on keeping maintenance to a minimum, oversized pivot bearings increase durability while a common size across all pivots makes service and replacement a breeze when that day does come around. A threaded SRAM DUB bottom bracket continues on the theme with worry-free performance.
- The active, planted feel of the Status’ FSR suspension design and Fox’s DPX2 rear shock equipped with our Rx Trail Tune make for perfect friends—and plenty of benefits. Calling on a twin-tube design that allows for two separate oil pathways during compression and rebound, the DPX2 rear shock provides plenty of support for big hits while still offering enough buttery small-bump sensitivity to keep you fresh for when the style points really count.
