FORBIDDEN Druid V2 Carbon 29" Frame Kit

Item number: 91924

The FORBIDDEN Druid V2 29" carbon frame kit in high pivot design for all-mountain use


The Druid V2 carbon frame kit from FORBIDDEN in the 29-inch version offers 130 mm travel together with an Ultimate-level RockShox rear shock and conquers the all-mountain trails with you. The pulley on the seat tube is an eye-catcher and is characteristic of the sophisticated Trifecta chassis design, which is based on a high pivot and allows you to ride at high speed with full control, both downhill and uphill. Also worth mentioning is the one-ride concept in the development of the geometry: to ensure the same riding pleasure for everyone, the geometry is perfectly balanced for each frame size, especially with regard to weight distribution. The cable routing is internal and runs (apart from the seatpost) through the top tube and rear triangle. You are free to choose the side, which, if you wish, allows you to install a rear wheel brake with left-hand operation. The carbon used is high-quality high-modulus full carbon. So that you can enjoy your Druid for a long time, it is designed for durability. For example, the forged bell crank with oversized bearings is designed to be maintenance-friendly. By the way, there is room for a 750 ml drink bottle in every frame size. At the bottom of the top tube there is another screw mount, for example for an accessory bag, but you should not attach a drink bottle there.

Technology:

Trifecta Suspension
The background to the eye-catching Trifecta Suspension design is the use of a high pivot, i.e. a main pivot point that is not located near the bottom bracket but higher up on the seat tube. This has the advantage that the rear wheel does not move forwards when you compress the suspension, but backwards and thus does not brake your movement, but goes along with it. This also makes the rear triangle a little longer, which increases stability under heavy compression. It allows you to ride faster and more controlled on rough terrain. The finely tuned anti-rise forms a counterpart to the sagging of the fork under heavy braking and ensures consistent chassis stability. The idler pulley with chain guide counteracts pedal kickback and is optimally positioned for efficient pedalling with ideal anti-squat. As far as the transmission ratio is concerned, the Rate Control Linkage bell crank enables separate tuning of the different spring travel ranges by means of relatively small links, i.e. without relying exclusively on strong progression. This way you get adequate support in the middle travel and still don't have to fear hard hits.

One-Ride Geometry
With the aim of offering the same riding experience to everyone regardless of body size or figure, forbidden have developed the One-Ride geometry. This system is characterised by the fact that the weight distribution is adapted to each frame size, which manifests itself in different chainstay lengths for each size, for example. The real seat angles become steeper with frame sizes, which improves the riding position on larger frames, when compared to comparable frames. The head tube length also increases more than usual with each size in order to better cover more unusual body sizes.
