contestants come face to face with our 7 Judges in The GAUNTLET video series. Way to go Daniel! Your DF-350 design qualified for the top 9 in the Reality Redesigned contest. Time to see what the Judges have to say about it....
Designed from the ground up, the DF-350’s suspension system is what sets it apart from the rest. Using a new 6-bar linkage design, the DF-350 is able to incorporate an extremely low center of gravity and top of the line braking and pedaling performance into a suspension system that provides a 75% rearward wheel path. This is all made possible by the connecting rod between the chainstays and the seatstays which force the wheel dropouts on the back of the bike to remain almost perfectly level throughout all 208mm of wheel travel. This helps prevent rough terrain from having any negative impact on wheel traction while hard on the brakes.Click HERE
