At the heart of the Rakan is the revolutionary MLink™ suspension platform, a four bar linkage system that uses a mid-length linkage in the rear triangle. This combines the suspension tuning previously possible only on short link systems with the geometry advantages of long link systems, enticing even the most insatiable rippers to drop in. MLink’s longer links rotate slower than short link systems, creating less stress on pivot bearings—and unlike a long link system, MLink connects the seatstays and chainstays for better triangulation and a stiffer rear swingarm while still taking advantage of shorter rear chainstay geometry. All of that super slick tech jargon adds up to give you the bike that changes the face of versatility on the mountain and blazes you toward trail nirvana.
The Rakan will have you climbing with precision and attacking your descents whether you’re breaking away from the pack or carving up singletrack with your bros.
