The Operator
Last year we launched our new Operator platform with one purpose: ride the bejesus out of the world™s downhill tracks all week, race the hell out of them on Sunday, then do it every weekend forever. It starts with a wholly rejuvenated version of our famed Walking Beam 4-Bar suspension system. The design features incredibly plush and durable oversized axle pivots and bearings, combined with low standover and a modern, balanced riding position. We™ve taken everything we™ve learned from our World-Championship-winning Stab and created a bike that speeds into a new era of downhill riding. It™s easy to maintain, with a supple and deep rear suspension feel designed for The Long Sweet Ride, so it™s no surprise Dirt Magazine called it œBang on! To make it even better, we added new rear shock mount options and shortened the rear chainstays.
