Details

A privateer is a top-level rider who hits the trails without the benefit of a fancy sponsorship deal. Their ideal rig? A blue-collar machine that doesn't skimp on performance. That sums up the Release 3 perfectly. The heart of the bike is our artfully shaped and butted aluminum frame with brisk-pedaling Level Link suspension. A Fox 34 Performance Float 150mm travel fork and Fox Float DPX2 rear shock work in perfect tandem to obliterate tooth-rattling hits on even the longest of descents.

Shimano's reliable XT 11-speed drivetrain components offer up seasons of accurate shifts, while the Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes continue to impress with their excellent balance of pucker power and finesse. Other brag-worthy components include our burly Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR tires, and a KS LEV Si dropper post. The Release 3-pro-caliber quality for those of us with day jobs.

- Level Link design equals 130mm of efficient yet supple rear suspension
- Boost 148x12mm Maxle dropout adds even more stiffness to the hydroformed aluminum frame
- KS LEV Si dropper post w/Southpaw remote improves maneuverability on descents
- Powerful Shimano XT M8000 hydraulic disc brakes (180mm rotors front and rear)
- Crisp, confident shifting via Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain paired with Race Face Turbine Cinch cranks

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
