Whilst some manufacturers change their designs annually or every couple of years, Morewood struck gold with theirs several years ago and apart from a change to the shape of the top tube they’ve stuck with it, something that we can be grateful for. BOS suspension is tough to beat in bump-devouring and grip-producing ability and so a bike that was designed around a BOS shock was always bound to make an impression on the world.
We’re more than glad to see this partnership is enduring and the optional Void air shock (pictured) makes for a dream pairing. A frame and shock combo like this really can’t be bettered, the angles are spot-on for the all but most extreme downhiller (with a stock head-angle of 64 degrees), and the three sizes ensure that nearly all heights are catered for.
What else is there to say? Mick Hannah and his sister Tracy have finally given the bike the podium presence that it is so easily capable of, proving that this is not only one of the best privateer options but worthy of the best riders in the world. There still isn’t a specific UK distributor unfortunately, which is puzzling considering the bike’s potential and popularity, so you’ll have to go to Sports Nut in Germany to place your order.
