Get into the Habit

Playful, agile and ultra-capable, the Habit delivers pure, idiot-grin fun on pretty much anything the mountain throws your way. If you're looking for one bike to do it all, make it a Habit.

Rider profile:

Riders looking for the most all-around fun and capable bike on the mountain.
  • TRAVEL
    Habit - 120mm front and rear
    Habit SE - 130mm front/ 120mm rear
  • LIGHTWEIGHT FRAMES
    Habit frames come in three great flavors. Full BallisTec Carbon with a carbon link, BallisTec Carbon front/SmartFormed rear with the carbon link, and full SmartFormed Alloy. Cool carbon shock link saves 100 grams over alloy.
  • DIALED TRAIL GEOMETRY
    The 68 degree head angle, custom 50mm fork offset, short chainstays and low-slung chassis offer the perfect blend of speed and capability to let you shred whatever on the mountain throws your way.
  • ZERO PIVOT SEAT STAYS
    Lighter and laterally stiffer than conventional pivots, these pivotless stays also reduce unsprung weight for better suspension response. Featured on both carbon and alloy swingarms.
  • ECS-TC LOCKR PIVOTS
    Oversized a xles in the swingarm and link lock into place with a unique expanding collet system, dramatically increasing the system stiffness.
  • PROPER TRAIL SPEC
    It’s a control thing…wide 760mm bars, shorty 60mm stems, 180mm brake rotors and wider rims put you in control, no matter what you get yourself into.
