Keith started with a fresh slate. Every element of the frame was considered, designed, refined and optimized. The outcome is an extraordinary hardtail. Not a single part remains from the V2.
The main focus of the paradox V3 project was on achieving optimal vertical compliance and vibration damping. This was achieved using FEA to tune the dropouts and yoke designs, to purposefully design in controlled vertical flex.
Aggressive geometry, combined with our bespoke hydroformed tubeset and internally ribbed stays, the Paradox V3 delivers a comfortable ride with vertical compliance and incredible power transfer due to best in class lateral stiffness.
The results of all this hard work are a hardtail that is quite simply a joy to ride all day.
