Looks like a Session… or does it?

The benchmark of downhill mountain bikes is back with a whole new look—and a whole lot of new speed to go with it. Park runs or World Cup circuit, Session finds the fast on the rowdiest trails with a new high-pivot frame design, 200mm of travel, and the world’s best suspension tech.

The world's fastest ride Session
World Champion Reece Wilson

Session is an iconic bike with a winning legacy in the world’s biggest events, from Downhill World Championships to Red Bull Rampage. The newest version is faster, more versatile, and ready to rip harder than ever—and it’s been overhauled with a new suspension design that makes it the ideal gravity bike for more riders.

All speed, no hangups
Session’s high-pivot suspension design

The Session features a high-pivot suspension design that results in a rearward axle path, allowing the back wheel to move with the rearward force produced by bumps rather than against it.

On the trail, this translates to smoother suspension that doesn’t get hung up on obstacles and instead maintains more forward momentum and provides better grip.

Less kickback. More performance.
Session’s idler pulley

Pedal-kickback is that feeling you get when your crank rotates backward as your suspension compresses. It’s the result of tension caused by chain growth—when the rearward axle path increases the distance between your cogs and front chainring.

To keep you rolling smoothly on even the rowdiest lines, the new Session is equipped with an idler pulley that routes the top section of the chain closer to the high-pivot and virtually eliminates chain growth and all of its negative effects.

Tune for your trail

Session now features a Mino Link suspension adjustment so you can tune your ride for your kind of session. Choose a firmer 25% progression for race day or the plusher 20% progression for park days.

New reach-based sizing

The new Session has a sizing strategy based on reach rather than seat tube length, which lets you choose the size that best fits your riding style. Size up for more stability at speed, size down for more maneuverability.

Size-specific chainstays

Ride balanced, whatever your frame size. Session’s chainstays grow to match the frame’s size, ensuring you get the right weight distribution for control on your biggest lines.

Run it mullet!

Every Session comes stocked for speed with 29er wheels, but the frame accommodates 27.5˝ wheels and party-in-the-back riders can run 29er up-front only.

Hitch without worry

Full-coverage armor helps prevent down tube damage from trail debris and makes for worry-free shuttling on tailgates and chair lifts.

Route it your way

Run your cables in whatever custom variation you prefer, externally for easy replacement or internally to prevent snags and hang-ups.
