Knolly Bikes

WHO WE ARE

Knolly Bikes was born 10 years ago on the shores of Vancouver, BC Canada. As we all know, this zone was the epicenter of the freeride movement in mountain biking, and continues to be a hot-bed for innovations in riding styles and bicycle design. BC riding will always be the driving force behind frame design here at Knolly.

OUR FOCUS IS SIMPLE

Design the best suspension mountain bikes in the world, period. For our chief designer and CEO, Noel Buckley, this meant designing and patenting his own suspension platform, and then partnering with the best fabricators from around the world to bring his vision for each model to life. Choices like tubing, bearings, fasteners, and finishes are all deliberated carefully, since the finished product must ride ‘like a Knolly’.

REAL DESIGN

This is what sets Knolly Bikes apart from dozens of bike brands that choose to license a third party suspension design, or even choose parts of their frames from a catalog. Yes, you can do that… you can choose a pre-fabricated headtube or bottom bracket shell or dropout and purchase it for your bike design. That’s not how we do things here at Knolly. Every single tube is designed in-house and optimized for each model and intended purpose. These parameters affect choices like alloy series, tube shape and wall thickness, so each Knolly frame takes on a personality all its own. We don’t settle for cookie-cutter catalog frame parts, and quite frankly, neither should you.

4X4 Suspension

Only Knolly Fourby4 suspension can achieve balance in all four of these categories with no compromise. We can build the bike to deliver the exact ride experience desired which means our bikes are some the best performance full suspension bikes on the market.

BRAKING. PEDALING. TRACTION. CONTROL.

SUSPENSION PERFORMANCE IS FOCUSED ON THESE FOUR CHARACTERISTICS.

The rear triangle pivots determine the rear wheel axle path and the anti brake jack characteristics of the frame.  The chainstay pivot placement means the brakes do not lock up the suspension.

The linkage pivots are isolated from the rear wheel axle path and they are directly responsible for the progressive nature of the rear suspension. For more tech nerdy info on our Fourby4 check out our

Our bikes 

Knolly Fugitive LT ~ Trail/Enduro 135mm Available for demo 

THE CRUSHER.

Our bikes have always punched above their weight class in terms of suspension feel so don’t be fooled by the 135mm on the Fugitive LT. This bike will have you hitting the trail harder and faster than most bikes with 150mm but don’t worry – the bike exudes stability, control and traction so your ride just got better. And faster. And more fun.
