The Karate Monkey helped set the standard for 29er geometry. While its tucked-in rear wheel keeps it nimble and maneuverable, its lack of shifting componentry keeps the bike simple — and the rider filled with a cathartic rage. With a frame and fork made of custom-designed Surly CroMoly “’Natch” steel, the Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively, durable ride. The Karate Monkey frame has recently been updated to include features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on their Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail oriented. The minimalist component package comes courtesy of SRAM, and a capable Alex wheelset rounds out this trail-ready monster.
