The Ultimate
Dream Bike

"I've been waiting 30 years for this bike" - Jason Moeschler

THE XC SPEED DEMON

The Following was never meant to be an XC bike. These are confusing times. DH riders are damn near back into skin suits and XC riders have finally realized the laps go faster with a bit longer than 100mm travel, dropper posts, 4-piston brakes, 30mm wide rims, and 2.4 tires. And just like that, the bike that made people realize 29ers don’t suck - every DH riders
favorite pedal bike - is stuck right in the cross hairs of the XC evolution.
Any rider worth their salt knows 120mm of DELTA Link suspension pedals and descends better than any bike out there. With the addition of RockShox Flight Attendant Suspension and build kit juiced up on Slim Fast, The Following has found itself square in the middle of an XC rider’s sub 26lbs wettest dream.
