The ARC8 Extra is available in 2 versions. The Extra with 160mm travel and the Extra ST with 135mm travel. It is only a different rocker link that changes the Extra into the shorter travel ST version. The St link is available seperately for $159.- so you can easily switch between a full blown Enduro bike to a mid travel trail bike.
The Extra comes alive when the terrain gets challenging. Everything on this bike is designed to boost your confidence, starting from a geometry akin to a downhill bike, over big wheels, to frame stiffness. A long reach, 64° head angle, and low BB mean all business in the front. There is still some party in the back though, with short chainstays keeping the bike alive and giving it some pop when taking off on small features.
It is easy to get to the top as well, thanks to a steep seat angle, efficient suspension, and low weight.
With our frameset, you can build it into the bike you want. Put on some sturdy tires, coil springs and a 180 mm fork, and you can go absolutely mental on this bikes. Or put on a 160 mm fork, air sprung fork and shock, and reasonable tires, and you are all set for epic days in big mountains.
The Extra ST
We built the Extra ST inspired by our local trails where it’s right at home. It’s riding on these trails where behind every corner a root is your potential take off, a dip waits to be manualled or a rut becomes your next berm. The Extra ST is an enduro bike condensed into a smaller package which unleashes the most fun out of those trails.
Where a trail becomes too dull on a bigger bike, it becomes a playground full of opportunities on this bike. The shortened travel injects a healthy dose of playfulness and efficiency. There certainly is a danger of going too wild on this bike. But in those moments, the Enduro-worthy geometry will have your back and guide you out of trouble.
You are wondering what category of bike the Extra ST belongs to? We don’t know either. But be assured, it is more fun than any of them.
