At this year’s Press Camp, Ellsworth previewed its newest bike, the Rogue Sixty. This carbon enduro/all-mountain rig will feature 160 mm of travel front and rear, 27.5 wheels, internal cable routing, aluminum chainstays, a 1x-only design, threaded bottom bracket, Boost spacing front and rear and Di2 compatibility.
Ellsworth added a house-designed shock bolt called the “Hex Key Rocker Locker” and a hex-taper rear axle for more stiffness and simpler maintenance. The latest iteration of the Ellsworth four-bar linkage rear suspension is designed for efficiency to be a great climber for enduro transfer stages (and, we guess, regular mountain biking) just as it’s designed to descend well. If you want to get into it, read about Instant Center Tracking here.
Four builds in three colors, each, will be offered, all with FOX suspension, Maxxis High Roller II tires and Race Face Turbine dropper posts. The Shimano XT kit comes in at $6,500. Pre-order starts this month with availability in September. Currently, no size small is being offered, only medium, large and extra-large.
