It's right for you if...

You're a regular on the lifts and at the bike park. You're looking for a playful, versatile, durable DH rig with proven performance and a park-ready geometry, and want a lot of tech for your money.

The tech you get

An Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with Mino Link adjustable geometry, a 200 mm RockShox Boxxer Select fork with plush DebonAir spring, 210 mm of rear travel with an adjustable FOX Performance VAN shock, 27.5˝ Bontrager Line DH 30 wheels, SRAM Guide R brakes and a DH-specific SRAM GX 7-speed drivetrain. Race, rip, ride. This bike does it all.

The final word

Fast, durable, agile and stable. Session 8 is fully capable of taking on the gnarliest descents, the biggest jumps and the burliest trails. It's a versatile, confidence-inspiring ride with the best in DH tech and a geometry that's not so low and long that it doesn't play nicely at the park.

  1. Session 8 has the heart of a monster truck: it rolls over everything, gives you the confidence to take on rougher trails and saves you when you don't take the right line
  2. The quality suspension set-up paired with our ABP frame design is made to keep you in control
  3. The durable, DH-specific 7-speed drivetrain keeps things simple, so you can focus on shredding and getting rad

  5. 27.5 wheels are great for flicking the bike around through the most technical trails


Features

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
