Available with 140 or 150 mm travel, the Highlander suits a 150 or 160 mm fork. The benefits of the high pivot design are enormous - moving the pivot up changes the path the rear wheel moves through when it goes through its travel. The wheel moves up and back, not up and forward, so you lose less energy when the suspension takes a hit. The action also makes the suspension feel like it has more travel than it actually does and the suspension is still fully active under heavy braking.

Sealed bearings and grease ports throughout, Including pivot bearings.
